> Gulf Wars has been doing this since Gulf Wars 5. When you volunteer at
> Gulf Wars, you are given a slip stating which department and when you
> worked. these slips are turned into volunteer point. Also when you first
> go to volunteer point, you are asked to sign in stating where you want the
> money to go. Any group with an SCA bank account is avalible (Local group,
> kingdom, national) any group that we can transfer SCA funds to.
> After the war the number of volunteer hours are tabluated, and the list of
> hours broken down by kingdom and group is sent to the Exchequer. The
> money comes from the profits of Gulf Wars. The war reserved the first
> $10000 of profit for itself. the rest of the profit is split 60% to the
> four kingdoms (Meridies, Trimaris, Gleann Abhann, Anstorria) and 40% to
> the volunteers. So the 40% is divided by the number of hours, and this
> gets the value per hour. (It has ranged from $.50 to $1.00/hour over the
> years that I have worked) The amount going to each group is calculated,
> and checks sent to the kingdoms with a list of which group in that kingdom
> get the money. The more one works and the more people that work, the more
