Amount of Ice needed for Party

There must be a formula out there to calculate the amount of ice needed per person for a cocktail party. Anyone know of such a formula? I was pretty impressed with the amount of detailed information on the beverages page but didn't see anything about ice it would be a nice addition.
Thanks!

It is there, in the section on soda-

"PLUS ice, 1 pound per person, double if hot, depending on length of party

"add 30 to 40 pounds ice per large cooler"
