We are paid a very small honorarium to our efforts as a non profit organization, and any income we receive from these efforts are fully disclosed each tax year. It seems that one year a member [no longer a member] took it upon himself to hire 2 aspiring Vancouver actresses on behalf of a misguided club excecutive, with 'minimal' efforts to declare the costs involved. Turns out, they arrive semi clothed, given free entry, and were paid a considerable sum to display their attributes. Needless to say, the shite hit the fan when those in the club with common sense and responsible ethical and financially responsiblity became aware of this silly escapade.
Of course, a club hiring such professional help and a company hiring such help are distinctly different. Alas, the club does not do such things as this any more.

Yeah, different promoter this year for the first time. Also, the temporary tent area was missing,,,not sure if it's because the whole thing caved in last year from the snow & wind, or if the promoter's rumoured higher floor space rentals scared away vendors.
