Everyone is welcome in Pinehurst.............except....maybe.....you.
Here is your answer. The concert is a fundraiser for a non-profit organization, First Tee of the Sandhills, so the idea is to make as much "profit" as possible. Last year more than 100 folks volunteered, so many that not all were needed. Most of those who are available, have offered to help again. There will be no shortage of responses to the call for more volunteers. It is a fun gig for a worthy cause. While the volunteers are not paid, they do get two tickets worth nearly $60 and a tee-shirt worth maybe another $15. In this community folks turn out to volunteer when asked, and they don't expect to get paid if it is something they want to do.
OWNID "often wrong, never in doubt"
This is addressed to all of those who think that traffic will flow better in the circle if only those in the circle would drive slower to enable those waiting more opportunity to enter the circle. That theory sounds right, but I think it is wrong.
Slower traffic just clogs up the circle making it even more difficult for others to enter. It just makes more sense to me that the quicker the traffic in the circle exits, the sooner they clear space for others.
When I am in the circle (daily), I make every effort to facilitate entry by those waiting. If there is space behind be, I often will speed up to enlarge that space thereby creating an opening. If I slow down, I will just block that space. On the other hand if there is a sizable space in front of me, I will slow down to increase the size of that space. No one solution fits each situation. The best idea is to pay attention and either slow down or speed up depending on which has the best chance of creating an entry opportunity.
