Description of Net Revenue Distribution to Volunteers at
Acorn War XXVI – 2015
The Shire of Mountain Edge wants to recognize volunteers from
the branches that help make this friendly war fun each year.

among the recorded volunteers, with the proceeds going to the
destination of their choice (their branch, the Kingdom travel
To accomplish this, volunteers will be asked to record their
hours in a manner similar to that used at large inter-Kingdom
events (most recently Gulf Wars) and the Shire will compute the
revenue sharing as follows:

per volunteer hour
Total of individual volunteer hours per branch/other destination
X $ per volunteer hour = $ to that branch/destination
Complete records will be available to recipient branches so that
they may choose to recognize exceptional volunteers (and we hope

Yes, more paperwork for Mountain Edge – but an opportunity to
ensure that those who serve, sometimes invisibly, will be rewarded
for their service. Without volunteers, we can’t have events.
