We have our big competition next weekend. It's away and we stay at a hotel and pay for bussing, fees, etc. I gave two deadlines to pay the approx. $500 for the cost of the trip. Two girls who didn't pay a dime (deadline for half was last month and for the rest was today), quit. Tonight. One transferred and one's grades suck so her parents are making her quit. Not only does that screw us for next week but we're now short $1000 that we already put out. I know they aren't competing (although our roster was turned in last week and it's a $100 per person fee) and aren't staying (the deadline for cancelling rooms was yesterday....) but is it unreasonable for me to ask that they still pay these fees? I HATE confrontation but we can't just eat the difference.
