I don't know how much money the King's Arrow Ranch on-site store 
makes during Gulf War, but the SCA merchants don 't enter into the 
picture at all.

According to http://www.gulfwars.org/MERCHANT_PACKET.pdf  merchants 
have to pay the same site fees as everybody else who goes to Gulf 
War. In addition, they are charged ten cents per square foot of space 
they occupy (i.e. a 10 x 20 tent would have 200 square feet and cost 
$20.00) a fifteen dollar processing fee and another ten dollars if 
they want  electricity. That money goes to SCA-Gulf Wars, not King's Arrow.

You also made a comment earlier about all profits from the merchants 
going to the site owner. That's absurd. Why would a merchant bother 
to show up and sell their wares if all the money the made went to 
King's Arrow? That doesn't make any kind of business sense; they 
might as well just *give* the stuff away.
