Gouge

Well, our bout got cancelled again. And by again I mean for the THIRD TIME! This time it was a little more sinister than just a flood or a hurricane. Seems the owner of Super Skate in Pinellas has been having second thoughts about roller derby, so much so that he not only asked for all his money for Sunday's bout up front,(usually they get paid after the bout when all the money has been collected), but he also decided to change the deal he had with that league concerning practices too. Instead of the agreed upon $450 a month for 7 to 8 practices, he now wants to charge $100 an hour which will equal out to about $1400 to $1600 a month! 

HOLY SHIT!!!

It's not like the guy got nothing from the bouts. He sells the only concessions there. He got a cut of the tickets. He also sold gear & stuff from the pro shop. What the hell, man? How can you be that fucking greedy? 

My only thought on it is he is trying to boot that league out of the rink, but instead of being a man, he's going about it like a worm and trying to force a league that hasn't even been around for more than a year O-U-T by over charging these fine ladies! Just keeping it klassy, I guess.

Jerk. I won't be going to Super Skate of Pinellas again any time too soon. I won't recommend it to anyone else either.
