but i guess no one else is broke
i spend more than that at a bar hanging out with my friends. thats a bargain to hang out with my friends for the weekend. just saying... and I dont even have a dub anymore.
Im just comparing this event to others at the same venue. It a bit expensive. for everyone who thinks i dropped a bunch of money on my car, it pretty cheap when you do it all yourself. what i get from the money i spent on my car far surpasses the $35 parking spot at waterfest. I think it was $20 to show at Dustoff this year and that is totally reasonable. I would rather a million people come and make my town rich over a weekend than people not want to go because its too expensive. Maybe im bitching because i don't have a career outside of my education but moneys tight and this event feels like robbery. I may come for gen admission because i feel like $20 is a great price for an afternoon of good times but idk who would feel comfortable paying $15 more unless they were over-competitive and egotistical.
well if your allready decided to drive to the show its worth it even if in exibition. il admit im cheap but its only once a year! chilis meets still going on.. and if you on budget have a sausage fest in a hotel with some friends n will spend less then 100!! good luck

Sucks you won't be there though. I love your car. Haven't seen it in person yet and was hoping to see it this weekend. Atleast you should get out to some of the festivities Saturday night

I'm bitching about paying $20 for Gen admission. I do have to pay for the wife too though. But I can bitch because I'm an unemployed Army Vet that just got out and can't find a job to save my life lol. I will however still be there on Sunday. Its my first "real" show in two years, because Fort Hood sucks. Hopefully there are some sweet cars there
I agree.. i think its a bit over priced.. Guess alot of people thought the same since waterfest kept extending the dead line for registration. Plus showing sucks since its just an opinion from someone that doesnt even know anything about VW/audi's.
ill still be going though

You miss the real reason why its so expensive. ITS THE TOWN YOU LIVE IN. They keep fighting with raceway park because the tools come and build million dollar houses right next to a racetrack that has been there for 60+ years. They complain and try to get the place closed. The Sheep in the town are sharks and raise taxes. The money has to come from somewhere.... That somewhere is you my friend. People are in business to make money, the venue (E-town) is a business.
To hold the show the Waterfest people need to get
1> A venue
2> Insurance -aint cheap
And more garbage I didnt list.
Etown wants more money every year to pay "increased" expenses, insurance companies want more money all the time, and the employees have to get paid more.
Its a vicious cycle, brother.
