Skate n Place

Post  Guest on Tue Jan 18, 2011 4:07 pm

Hey guys,
FYI, I just drove by Skate n Place and saw that Gene has practices advertised with a $10 admission to 'watch'. I just wanted to make sure he had consulted with someone about this as I didn't remember hearing anyone talk about it at the meeting.

Now that is JUST crazy. $10 more in his pocket, and not ours I'm sure. What a d-bag.

I called Ricole and left a message telling her what is going down. I know that she has a pretty good rapport with Gene. This is definitely beyond bananas but we really can't afford to not practice on Wednesday. Maybe we can try to get someone to stand outside during practice and ask people to not pay the ten dollars to watch a lame boring practice and maybe if we all bring our leftover tickets we can also have that person try to sell tickets to the bout on Saturday.
Also I know I suck at always being positive but I mean it is kinda cool that we are so big-time that Gene is finally realizing he can make money off of us. GO MISSFITS!!

hey ladies, gene did talk to us about this, but we are supposed to work out the details and it was our understanding (i think) that they would come and watch a scrimmage, not every practice. we'll see. and we ARE supposed to get half.

no, we did not have a team discussion about this. we thought it sounded like a good idea and told him we'd get back to him. of course, he went ahead with it even though we hadn't worked anything out. i am hopeful that he will be made to understand that we would have some concerns about how things are done and when people are allowed to come. with gene, it's all about the dollas!

Even though we know what's up now, I'd still charge people to watch this happen. I'll throw Gene 10% for his trouble. Laughing

Go MissFits - lets make some dough for showing off our mad skills!

I partially take back the wheel to the hole comment. But, no worries - if any punk EVER crosses the integrity of our league, he/she can pick the color wheel for some wheel-to-tail action.

Thanks for clearing that up, Bruiz E. Embarassed

okie-so it was absolutely not decided on when but it is great exposure. i think a date or two a month on a saturday is a great way to get our name out there. there isn't much we can do about tomorrow but i have lined up some dates for the future and made a calendar for old man to look at.

Sat Feb 5th
Sat Feb 26th
Sat March 19th


and i want to explain to him that spectators shall not arrive until 6:30 as we will be getting dressed. ricole also raised a point about our stuff being out there with the public. so mooby moved as fast as he could to get those dollars but we will make this work for both sides. and hey-if we get 5 bucks a head that is money in the bank for a new home without an old creep. just sayin

The fact that he is rushing like that, tells me theres something wrong. He's not afraid to take advantage of us. I feel like being skeptic is very important and if there is no written agreement about all this yet, we should all be skeptics. No way are people coming to our practice Wednesday in my opinon if there is nothing written. I do not trust that man. And like I said, he's not afraid. Extra cash and exposure ar good but, this should be on our terms, the teams terms. Im concerned Embarassed

Well said, Daize.
I'm concerned that people will end up in the doorway or worse yet, in the corner of the rink. I think that has to be a definite no. But I can't tell you how creeped out I am by his going off on his own to sell tickets to watch us.

Daize, i agree.[/quote]

Agreed, to a certain extent. He could just very well be excited, the man's passion is skating afterall. However, we are all aware he is not in good financial status, so before any money is taken, something in writing should to be drawn up and agreed upon by both parties. Otherwise there is a good possibility he will pocket monies and we will see nothing.

Is there a possibility of writing up a contract for this (instead of $10 make it $5 or something someone will actually pay) and possibly get him to lower the head cost for us girls if we consider him a sponsor then? This could could be good for us and him/community.

I know he is difficult, so I'm just putting it out there...written contract or we take a huge risk of being taken...

I also agree that it could be good exposure but there needs to be terms about or personal items, where they can and can't stand and what we will get from it. Also, will they be charging anyone that comes through the door? How will he know if it is media, or a potential coach that we invited? Will he try to charge freshmeat that aren't skating?
