Do the pros of having 'guests' help out with the cost of locations outweigh the cons of not being able to do a proper investigation of a property?

No, Guest nights should never be considered an investigation.
Too many variables, too many people and in my experience to much alcohol.

I'm a firm beleiver that if people want to see how a team works then a guest night is not really the way forward. It would be better to do private invo's with a few select invitees.

However, we know we need to raise money. And as yet I havent thought of a better way of doing this. So they are a necessary evil. As long as we dont try to do a full investigation on a guest night we shouldnt run into any pitfalls. Think of them as a demonstartion rather than an investigation.

Absolutely. I know most groups would state a zero alcohol policy on events, but it still doesn't alter the fact that you don't know who you've got turning up on a guest night, so how is a controlled investigation meant to work. As you say, there's nothing wrong with them and I've enjoyed them in my time but they should be classed as an paranormal investigative 'experience' rather than the real thing.

Why then do so many self proclaimed research groups do so many of the damn things then?

Because money talks. As honest as their intentions are, if they can make a quick buck most people will jump at the chance.

Everyone has their price. I'd sell my soul for a £3 million.
I sell a kidney for the chance to pay off my mortgage.
