Entry fees?

So I am putting together our flyer and entry form for our DVG club trial in September. Just wanted to see what was a fair fee for entries? I've looked at some other club flyers but couldn't find anything near me so thought I'd see what is the average fee most are seeing. I'm finding the BH from $35 to $60 and the "full" titles (ones that have all 3 phases) from $50 all the way up to $85.

Would love any input.

I have nooo experience with this whatsoever, but if it were me I would likely just put the entry fee at the very middle of the spectrum. (:

I believe Nikon's SchH1 was $75 Nov. 2011, USCA club. I had planned to enter a USCA trial in April 2011 and did not because at that time the entry fees were pretty punitive, lol ($85 for normal titles, $70 for BHs, $50 for ADs and I'd wanted to try a SchH1, BH, and 2 ADs!). I did an RKNA trial in May and paid $50 for a BH and $50 each for two ADs.

We charge $55 for the IPO/AWD/FH, $40 for BH/AD/OB/TR or $55 for a combo of the OB/TR or the APR (OB/PR combo). If we were to offer an IPO FH which a couple of our members have voiced an interest, then it would be probably in the $75-$85 range. Clubs near us charge a lot more for the titles. Some charge crazy prices for the FH and AD. I paid $75 for my AWD1 at another club.

Thanks all for the input. I also checked with our regional secretary and she gave me a few clubs in my areas most recent fees. I found an interesting thread on pdb about one club in California charging $100 for a club trial fee. I got the impression that people in general will pay a bit more if the facilities are better than average, which I found interesting. Also, the fees are somewhat regional. If the club is closer to a more populated area (therefore probably the land for the trial is more costly) then people are expecting to pay a bit more for the convenience. Anyway, I think I'm going with $60/$80 range.
Let the panic begin .

I think our trial was $50 for BH/AD and $60 for IPO titles.
