Should be $20

$85 for a FTF day pass !!

Really ??

I do my best to promote Swamp with my very limited time and I try to help new riders when ever I can but I got laughed at when I mentioned the FTF day pass rate.
Ok I vented, please don't hold this against me but $85 Is too much..
I really wanted to go this year but I can't justify spending that much.....

The Swamp membership rate change from $20 to $30 per year, yeah I get that, not a problem...

I am not disagreeing with you, because I believe the price is steep also.

But,

It does include 4 meals. That is worth something, call it $10/meal, so the entertainment is worth $45?? Maybe?

My biggest complaint is the way the camping is done. I have no idea, even though I paid for camping, if I am able to hook up my trailer. Not that it is that big of a deal, but maybe I will bring the old mid 90s Onan, instead of the inverter, and park it right next to whomever makes the rules for the tickets.

I look at the FTF fest as you have to do it once. And I have not done it yet. So this is the year.

It's a fund raiser for the club.

Girl Scout cookies aren't worth $3, either.

When FTF sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing geezers. They’re bringing endurbros. They’re Strav*s. And some, I assume, are good people.
