The entry fees never have, nor do I think ever will, cover the cost of
BIG prizes. I assume that you are talking about trips to Norway, etc.
These BIG prizes are provided by sponsors. I am not associated with the
AHA other than being a member (I'm not an officer or anything -- I'm not
even a Zymurgy author yet), but I'll bet the AHA (as well as its membership)
would be very grateful if you could convince a few importers or breweries
to sponsor some prizes.

I believe that annually, the AHA prints a financials report. I've seen one
and I assure you that no one at the AHA is getting rich.

Maybe someone who knows for sure, can comment on where the $7.50/$9.50
goes.
