    What do you mean? Between thousands of dollars spent on tuition, uniforms, bows, privates, gas, car maintenance, food, hotels, etc. you don't have a spare almost $200 to spend (family of 4 for 2 days) to watch your child compete?!

    Crazy talk!

    This just gets to be too much. I went to a pop warner competition in a high school gym, they charged me $25 to get in... I was like ummmmmm this is a high school gym.

    LOL! but seriously, with that competition fee EACH athlete pay to participate in the competition. Would it really hurt the EP to include at least ONE admission bracelet, pass, or ticket. GEESH. OR maybe a Competition Season Pass where you prepay at the beginning of the season for 4 or 5 comps you pick which ones. Use it or Lose it of course.

    I should do that. A few of these comps are ridiculous. There isn't room to see your own kid's team perform, let alone any other teams. But if it's a place we haven't been to before, I don't know what the "arena" looks like until I have paid.

    Folks we're dealing with multi million/billion dollar government facilities whether schools, convention centers or stadiums. The Braves new stadium was built in our county and I'm livid, we didn't get to vote on it and our property taxes have doubled. You best believe tax payers want the fans to pay for that stadium instead of us and if they can rent out school facilities to groups, even better. The elderly, poor, and frankly everyone else, will hands down vote for what they view as the more privileged enjoying a luxury to pay for those facilities. We may dislike it, but the poor little traveling cheerleaders and their parents aren't going to reap much sympathy when the elderly and poor can't afford their taxes.
