No worries mate, don't mean to imply that airsofters are venal.

We actually looked at some fundraising books and they indicated that donors were much more likely to give a donation when there was a prize or auction or something at the other end. The studies indicated that this was not because they needed a prize or sought material gain but because a) the percieved the giving as more "fun" and b) they percieved the organization as more serious if they offered promotional items.

Besides, I'd expect a Soviet-hippie to be anti-materialistic
