Hiya Steve,

I disagree with the concept of paying vets more for larger rides, 
unless you simply can't get enough vets, which I guess is your point.

Personally, I feel it's my responsibility as a ride manager to have 
MORE vets if there are more riders.  Reducing their workload can have 
the effect of encouraging the vets to do the ride in suceeding years.

My own strategy is over 120 riders, 4 vets.  I want the riders to 
have short lines, and high quality attention.  I don't think paying 
the vets more to do more riders is going to encourage the vets to 
want to come back.

Having more vets when there are 2 outchecks makes it easier to lift 
and shift coverage for the 50s.  Rides that have all their checks in 
camp can decrease the number of vets needed, but there are lots of 
reasons why I prefer to ride rides that don't loop through camp, 
especially multiple times.
