    Pay to Play?

    For the last year I've been playing in D&D's Adventure League at my local gamestore. In that year we have gone from one table with an occasional second, to three full tables and we're approaching the need for a fourth. So the decision was made to start a "pay to play" system. Currently we meet every Saturday and run four hour sessions. The price they've decided will be one dollar an hour. So each player will pay four dollars a session, which will be paid to the DM in the form of store credit. The idea was to help the DM's pay for miniatures, books, modules, and anything else they may need. I'm a bit on the fence about this. I make sure the shop receives at least three dollars each week from me in sodas, and usually end up spending about twenty each month on random comics and figures. It might not sound like much but between myself and my wife I feel we do our part (She usually makes a "large" purchase every two weeks). So as far as paying our way to the shop I believe we're covered. Now as for the DM I'd say we're a little lacking. As a group we do our best to change out our DMs so they have a chance to play. Thanks to my wife I've started helping out in that department though. At the moment I am currently a DM so I know how hard running a game can be, not to mention the prep that goes into it before you even reach the table. Personally I end up prepping about two hours every week. As a DM I don't feel comfortable accepting money in a "pay to play" system though. The only reason I'm even DMing is because someone had to and my wife kinda volunteered me. If I was a player I think I'd support this "new" system (the shop is making money with the added benefit of the DM being able to get necessary "supplies"), but as a DM this just doesn't feel right to me. Am I being crazy? This is my hobby, even though painting is the main part, taking money just feels dirty. Does anyone else feel like this?
