Some musicians (Axemunkee & Mary Zoo) dropping off CD's. Each musician would have a few CD's and some priced differently. It was some work to keep track of them all and also people would ask a lot of questions abut them.  (Nancy from s/v Gitane along with Alan and Elizabeth from s/v Vivacia are tending to the CD table.)

Me, sitting down in-between the customers.

The anchorage is in the background as they are selling T-shirts.

The best staff! Chip and Debbie from s\v Elegant'sea, us!  

As you can see, we all received free crew shirts, a name tag along with free beverages (water, soda or beer) at every event.  We were asked to volunteer at the opening and closing concerts then two other concerts of our choosing.  We could choose from Tickets, T-Shirt Sales, CD Sales or the one we picked - Merchandise Sales.   We were able to attend any other concert, gala dinner or workshop during the week (for free) as well as bring a "Plus One" (for free as well).
