    Hopefully, you get some bling. Ideally, a jacket, and some pins. I've still got a bunch from Calgary in 88. Trading gold. But I'm not giving up the SunIce jacket.

    Holy Smoley! I'd love to volunteer anywhere for $250,000.00 per year. Heck I could make it a full time job just volunteering. With all the volunteering going on in Utah we could become a very wealthy state.

    One, we do not need to fund another Oylmpics.
    Two, many people volunteer a lot of hours because they want to. They do for Sundance and did for the Olympics. As long as people aren't "forced" to volunteer why is it a problem?
