For the last 20 yrs, the cost has been set at $5/wk per player. About $5 per player per year is taken out for administrators. Proposals to increase or separate the administration fee is under consideration and will be voted on before league play starts in the fall of 2013.
Other than the administration fee, all fees are paid out at year end. Prize money is paid for the top 3 teams, most double pinochles, highest game, highest table, each 1000 aces and double rope. The balance is split on a per point basis. One point is given for each game, and two for total scores on each table per night.
