OldEic; I think you are agreeing with my original point. RE: Why do they screw us..... because they can.Hikers, bird watchers, trail runners, peeping toms, and riders have lots of options. Lots of free options. Climbers, especially down there do not.
...I also don't think - no matter how dig you deep - that you will find any Preserve employee or board member lining his pockets off the $$$ of the little people. ...
Actually, I had read the wrong column. Total revenue for 2010 was $3.8m. Wages (1.4m) was only a part of total expense which amounted to $2.7m for 2010. So, the 'excess' is $1.1m. This amount was added to the accumulated net asset of the Preserve, boosting it from $14 to $15m.Might the Preserve getting ready for land/property acquisition or a major capital investment project?Or just a healthy rainy day fund?
As Soon points out the Preserve is non profit and the pie chart of their income and expenses is pretty much in line with other non profits. But more fundamental is the fact that it is PRIVATE land and all these comparisons to public land climbing areas - from JT to N Conway are meaningless. What's that big private game preserve in west central NH? Are all the hunters bitching that it costs more (like $10K more) to get in and hunt there vs. the WMNF? The Preserve can charge whatever it wants. If you don't like it don't go.
