Well, here's the thing: you are only including a few expenses.
You have to consider that you've got registration at $80, a hotel room that might cost you $30-40 a night if you split 4 ways, but you also have gas and food expenses as well. Depending on where you live, that adds up.
So for someone like me to drive up to the convention, I'd be spending $80 on registration, at least $200 on a hotel, at least $150 in food, and about another $200 in fuel costs.
That's at least $630 dollars for a 5 day event without any optional stuff like the car show, tshirts, road coarse, etc.
That's not affordable at all for a student like myself working and going to school. That's a hefty chunk of money that can be spent in many other needed ways.
I'm not trying to say that it's ridiculously expensive, but "affordable" differs widely depending on many factors
