As soon as you introduce the $$$ element, bad things tend to happen.  Personally, I would not be willing to fork out an entry fee to participate in a contest - this is a hobby, not a profession.  Not only would contest participation suffer as a result of requiring an entry fee but then there would be the problem of the few that felt like they needed to "stretch" the rules to protect those 20 clams they just invested in said contest.  No thanks, lets keep the money element out of contesting.
