Note that in practice, the check for reduced registration was quite lax, 
and as a result, very few people took full registration.

I don't have figures of how many people paid full registration, how many 
people paid reduced registration, and how many people "volunteered" for 8 
hours each instead. I know people who can answer those questions if it's 
good to know.

BTW, 8 hours of "volunteering" in exchange of 50 $ fee equivalent is quite 
below minimum wage, which was 8,00 $ back then, I think (it's 9,65 $ now).

BTW, 1 $ canadian was 0,69½ € back then, 0,72 € now.
