    Not likely to pay

    I don't think I'd go if there was a $50 pp fee, if the seminars are also the cost they were.
    What I consider acceptable is a $50-100 pp if it includes a couple seminars.

    Minimums

    I didn't run into minimums either. Even Morris dropped their usual 500 minimum.

    Oh well, too bad for that vendor, they lost sales, and I hope they will learn.

    Very positive

    I liked that you kept to a quick-pace schedule and didn't drone on. You all hit the highlights, kept it relevant. It's good to see the outreach to startup haunts. I think the HHA will do well!

    Vendors seem happy; haunts are great

    I spoke with many vendors late Saturday and all but one (puppet guy) were very happy with the results. Most had fat invoice books to show off. Overall the mood was very upbeat.

    Cost of business

    We just chalk it up to the cost of doing business. All our actors/staff are volunteers so a "you break it, you buy it" policy doesn't apply. Many actors are teens and that comes with the territory....
