Let's do some math:
$50*3000= $150,000
SCA direct expenses, direct costs to King's Arrow, profit to sponsoring 
group, amortised costs to King's Arrow facility,  taxes, etc.
Profit  margin of 5%  to King's Arrow ( my estimate is on the high side, 
probably closer to 2 % of gate, but we'll go with 5%)
Non skid pathways,4' wide, properly mounded gravel, $2000 per mile
Same in asphalt   $3500 per mile
Same in simple concrete   $4000 per mile
Same in nicely patterned simulated cobblestone/paving blocks  concrete  
$6000 per mile

Miles of pathways needed go from major camping areas to list fields, 
barns, merchants row, etc., minimum of 3 miles, up to
3 times that to run paths to all camping areas.

Minimum $6000, up to $72,000.
