    I have no dog in this fight, but I have been there twice and it was very cool. However, if the rent is 10% of gross revenues or $500, whichever is more, I can see why they don't want to share info. From Bonne Terre Mine , a dive is anywhere between $90 and $150 and I bet they did over a hundred dives each day that I was there. 10% of that is a lot.

    I am in the same position, in regards to neutrality. I have never been there, and a few things there just kinda set cross-ways with me. Not that they are wrong, per se. I just disagree. Looks like some nice dives, though.

    On the Covid 19 end. I don't know what the county rules are for them. Missouri, has lifted (to my knowledge) all restrictions.

    Yes but reading the news story it was 10 percent of the admissions receipts not of the diving charges and that may be on of the issues.

    They don't charge you to get on the property. You have to have an admission of some sort to get down to the water. The devil would be in the details of the wording.
