Yep, I think they came for the joy of it (at least Clint/LGR did). I vote
no on the payment. I wouldn't take it amiss, as he probably thinks we're a
corporation profiting from events, but it'd set a bad precedent, and I
agree that we don't have the resources to do this, even if we wanted to.

I spoke to Clint and Adrian at some length, and it was very clear that they
were having a fantastic time. Ben Heck as well, though I didn't talk to him
as much.
