If the health boards can't get more money off them, i don't hold out much hope for us getting it for this.

I believe that the Brits (I might be wrong here) get paid for the weekend training that they do from their gratuity, this way if you don't/can't attend annual camp you still get some payment for the time you did put in.

Not an imposable task to reproduce over here and it would certainly encourage people to attend training weekends and solve the problem of paying regular attendees their due gratuity if they are unfortunate enough to miss annual training.
