I typed this message 4 times, and erased it 4 times. Trying not to come across as some cheap old crotchety geezer here...

What it boils down to is having volunteers who are most likely taking time off work and donating their time and effort with no other gain (like taking home by-catch), pay for the privilege of being there just seems off. They should at least have the opportunity to write off that 50 bucks as a donation.
Back when I was President of the San Diego Oceans Foundation we would obtain corporate grants to cover the cost of volunteers participating in efforts such as this.

I don't know - maybe I am getting old and crotchety...

Now get off my lawn!
