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.
