Hi Everyone!

Yeah, I have worked within the wonderful rennie world in a number of
capacities. Some have a big booth fee only, some take a percentage of
your daily take on top of the booth fee, etc. Plus styling out a
pavilion, insurance et al. Everything is overpriced generally, on top
of the 15 bones you pay to get in. **Because they know the family
brought a wad in with 'em.** The people who are in have the only show
in town so they charge what the market will bear. It seems the
artists do ok, the best split I have heard of was 50/50. I had a
30/70 on a temp basis but it was ok cause of the high prices, and I
was just starting out. I say: tip the stage performers well,
especially the music/dance troupes! A shameless plug.

Doin' it for the love, Tom
