2014 Far Hills Race Meeting: The Hunt

You doing The Hunt 2014?

With costs everywhere increasing, you ever wonder how it will affect events such as The Hunt on October 18th? The costs have gone through the roof SUBSTANTIALLY this year.

With “advance” tickets going up to $100 per person ($20 shipping and handling) and event day ticket costs are now $200 per person. That’s more than a 60% price increase over last year alone! Last year’s costs were $60 and $120 respectively.

And since they’ve clamped down on the rules (can’t “bring your own booze” anymore) – I suspect that attendance will be down (at least amongst the bottom-dwellers and possible Ebola-carrying grunts). Perhaps the entire shin-dig will be filled with only “classy one-percenters?”

Even though we “gave up” The Hunt (Far Hills Race Meeting) a long time ago (because it just wasn’t worth the trouble anymore) – maybe out of sheer morbid curiosity we’ll go this year – either to reinforce our logic, or to see what has changed in the years since we’ve attended.

The GA tickets are now $60 each, not $40.

GA tickets are actually $60.
“General admission tickets may be purchased in advance for $60 and parking tickets for $30 through area vendors. On event day, general admission and parking tickets may only be purchased at the gate. Event day general admission is $120, parking is $30.”

1. People who go around thinking they are cool are almost always not.

2. People who care whether others think they are cool are social sycophants

Just saying.

My mind drifts back to the happy talk of those simpler days…

There once was this girl at The Hunt
“Hmmm…an adipose dimpled runt”
But many beers later
You err and rerate her
And go spelunking her cavernous…hmmm…

…I forget how the rest of this went.

Volkswagon Jetta?
Townhouse condo?
Prescription cabinet?
??

At one of the last Middletown events I ran into this girl I remembered from high school. I was surprised she recognized me – I was invisible to her in second period English. Thanks in no small way to her new divorce and fussy toddler she “suddenly realized” I was the cat’s meow.

True story.

“the cats meow”?

something tells me you’re not as cool as you think if you’re using that phrase
