Your view though is blinkered given you failed to get into

a. The Commissioners

b. House of Keys

HAHAHAHA. Unlike you, I have never tried nor wished to "get into" either of these cess pools.

Exactly. I'd be interested to know the cost and profit regarding the TT magazine that was being priced at something ridiculous like £18 just for a magazine. What costs did this incur, how many copies were printed compared to last year, were last year's sales taken into consideration, what exactly has been done with copies that were not sold, who were the contractors for the writing and printing of the magazine, what other costs were incurred in the production of the magazine, how much profit went to third party private companies, how much funding did the DfE pay towards it, etc.

Good point there about "the program".

I've been in 7 or 8 shops and garages these last two days and there are tons of these £18 rip offs still for sale.

Lots on facebook trying to get hold of a copy for a keepsake cant get them, yet we have so many unsold that may get binned.

Pretty sure they would sell a few more if they weren’t so overpriced

What amazes me is how they can end up with so many unsold, when year after year we know a huge number end up being unsold. It's almost as if somebody completely incompetent is in charge.

Well they probably only cost a few shillings to produce so it's a case of stack them high sell them cheap or maybe not!

You can buy them online (and those for previous years too).  Presumably those people are only wanting to remember the racing rather than remember having to pay over the odds for everything.

Oh FFS TJ it doesn't matter what it is. A gig, a stand-up, a concert, a Roses T-20 whatever the souvenir program is always stupidly priced but not so stupidly that they don't sell. In fact the opening pricing must be an agonising decision because there are so many factors at play and you only get one shot at it.

If you got out more you would realise this....

Is there an event going on that all the forum bullies are out at tonight? They all seem to be appearing at the same time and picking on the same person in unison. Is there a bullying anonymous pub quiz on tonight? Or is it another meeting of the GOA?

They're always expensive and always a disappointment.

ETA: Event programmes that it, not MHKs.
