Ah yes, just one more reason to become local consumers and local producers! And in any
case, even w only a minimal guarantee driving hundreds of miles, as a caller I'd still
be working for a smaller loss than most dance organizers.
As we all know, we do this important work of making dances happen for many many many
reasons, but getting rich isn't realistically one of them.
As a caller (for whom this is a large part of my
livelihood), I will
work with many arrangements as long as it's communicated clearly
I assume that most of your gigs are 'local' then. At 51c/mile allowed
by the IRS you don't have to travel very far to be making a loss!
