spectator fee

Here we are......

I don't know how it is in other areas, but here, there is enough game in town for people to be picky, I know that one first hand.
-gives you that much more to keep up with... what about when an SCMC member shows up that doesn't have their member card... yeah you can be incensitive to the member and take the hard line "no card no entry", but I don't treat my fellow members that way.
-then you have to have an organized way to keep up with the participants free +2 entries
-it makes for a less of a friendly event..I like to give all those curious about the club every chance to see it shine and get hooked. If you charge for spectating.. that will be that much more of a turnoff.
-Every time it has been brought up, the people helping run the Texas event have unanimously felt it was not right to charge an entrance fee.

This is all just my personal opinion. I understand why people charge the fee, though. I like the idea of sponsors picking up the slack better, one extra sponsor can equal 50 spectators at $10 a pop.

I agree with the others that there should not be a spectator fee. I would also think that it would impact the insurance rate. Also I would think that CMP would want part of the gate also.

Fee waived this year!

Putting down that it is "BS" is not the way to explain why you disagree with the decision. Thanks Firme for making a case and overturning the idea.
