Re: [RC] Entry fees - Barbara McCrary

I remember Lud saying one year that he put about 350 miles on his truck just running around on race weekend. I don't know just what I put on my truck during Swanton Pacific, but it is a lot, because of the distances from camp to first VC and then all the other driving around checking to make sure all is going well. I imagine I put on at least 200 miles, maybe more. It's possible some riders don't realize how much mileage a ride manager covers in one weekend, but it's considerable for some of us. Just FYI.

Ride managers pay for fuel for the many trips they make to prepare for the rides. The porta-potty delivery and pickup costs more because of fuel. Everything we buy today has increased in cost due to the change in the price of oil.


Ride managers are seeing real increases in what it costs them and the services they get for the rides.

They need to recover their costs to keep putting on rides for us to attend.

I'm *really* happy that they continue to put on rides for us to attend and I'm happy to pay a few dollars more for the chance to ride.

Mike
