You do have a point there. Still, with all of the stuff this event has people hauling in and out (tanks for the auction, wooden stand set-ups for auction and vendors, tanks for display and competition, AV equipment, etc.) it probably would not hurt for the club to have 1 or 2 hand carts for volunteers to use for this. I could just see it coming in handy, particularly if we know we'll be fighting other events for use of limited hotel carts. It's not something the club wouldn't continue to use in the future.I dont think it should be on the club to pay money out to make up for people being ill prepared. Anyone that attends trade shows or these types of events where you have to haul a bunch of stuff to and from, should have their own cart or wagon or whatever they need. Cant assume there is going to be anything there for you when hundreds of other people are trying to do the same thing. If a person needs help with moving product, they should think ahead and ask for it, set something up. Plenty of helpful people in the club.
Just wanted to put my 2 cents in even though I know I will lose money since you only get 1 penny for your thoughts but sometimes that's just the cost of doing business.
