Re: Club activities
I must say that I agree whole heartedly. I am impressed at the way you
presented your issues, as well.
Coming from the Colorado region, I paid $225 for last years 2nd Creek
event and while I thought it was very steep, I paid it and had a good
time. I know for a fact that 2nd Creek costs $1000 a day to rent and
Insurance costs are unknown at this time. I have to assume that there was
no profit for the Qclub, just because of the other costs that are
involved (and mentioned by Fletch).
OK, for the REAL reason that I am posting this. This year we are doing
an event at Stapleton (the old airport) and the price is so suprisingly
low that I can not imagine that they are going to make anything. Once
again, I know for a fact that Stapleton costs $2000/day to rent, but the
cost to participate in the event is a meager $75/day. I have no idea how
they got the cost so low, but I REALLY appriciate it and offer my undying
support, for anything, if that is all they are going to charge me. The
event is an "expert" event (only people that have participate in previous
events may attend, Steamboat excluded), so there won't be any "new"
members participating or any "new" money. How can it be that last year we
paid twice as much for a lesser track (My opinion) and this year we are
paying half as much for a "better" (more expensive track? Not that I am
complaining, just curious and putting my 2 pennies in.
