These USTA folks have a lot of nerve to do this and promote it as an announcement.

Classless, Clueless, SCUMBAGS!!!

26-43 dollar steaks???

Maybe they will all have the surf and turf for 50 a pop.   

I hope they get a bad batch of meat and seafood for this event!!!

This is really bad while racing suffers they spend our dues on this.

Salads, appetizers, and drinks not included with above pricing.
And they had to pick a beach town, why not just have this at one of the tracks and make it pot luck???

You're right, JJ... it's bloody shameful.  The whole edifice is tumbling down, and these guys are hoisting expensive flagons on the membership's dime?   head shake

Some are even getting travel and motel expenses paid.

$.25 replays must be really bringing in the cash!

Do people realize you can see replays free at about 2/3rds of all track sites and ALL replays are free on sites like twinspires???

That sucks.

I mean, I don't like the ABA, and I don't really know who deputized them to speak for me, but then again I do not have to pay them dues.
