NABC Contracts
"Seasonality" as used by Gene refers to the desirability of "off-season rates", but you knew that. David, would you prefer Buffalo in the late Fall?

In the most extreme case of this type, if every two weeks, I work 10 consecutive days and then have 4 days off should I get overtime for 2 whole days the first week and regular pay for the 3 days of the second week?

Summer NABC Wrapup
Steve. Just make the transaction one player fee instead of one pair fee and what's the problem? We can pay for 4 to 6 players for a team; two for a pair; so why not just pay for one player's fees?
