Hi Erik,
I was curious about the kayaking with DTBH at Clearwater, since Yonkers
YPRC provided this for many years until a couple of years ago.  The reason
YPRC pulled out, I believe, was because Clearwater insisted that we be
treated as "Vendors", as if we were selling stuff.  So, despite having a
full crew work the weekend full time, driving SOT kayaks up and ensuring
the smooth running of the event for festival goers --free of charge, we
were also expected to pay the festival organizers for the privilege! I
wonder if DTBH has to pay them to provide this service too, or if they got
a better deal.
