SUMO enters a lot of the Big Game tournaments up and down the East Coast.

Hen & Chicks Between 4-10 people on a day trip private charter has a MINIMUM CHARGE OF $1700 for the 7.30 AM - 3.30 PM day trip to Hen & Chicks or $160 each for ten or more.
But once ten or more are aboard the charges reverts to a $170 per person for the day trip so 6,8,9 & 10 people would pay the private minimum charter rate of $1700 but 12 people on a day trip would pay $2,040.
