What indications do you have in the cockpit that the governor is masking Carb Ice (if any) ?

I would have expected the site to be provided at no cost, or "at cost" for a charity event. Has "at cost" really taken a hike in a single year? Or over a number of years ... your "again" suggests no ...

I've always read on the checklist & been told by instructors / examiners to pull the gyro CB before start.
