My boss is the one who really wants to know this, but I am not sure he would like the answer for it. He likes to go to the Nascar races, of which there are only a couple of them which are really close enough for him to travel to. There is one in Watkins Glen, NY and another in Pocono, PA. Both of them are a pretty good trip if you hired a party bus for Toronto that is just going to be way too expensive. That was what I was telling him at least. So it seems like you would be better off getting something else and hiring it from someone who was based closer to where you wanted to use it. Of course what he wants is something a little different. He wants to do this so that it is all on the company’s dime and use it to impress his clients.
This happens a lot with the people who sponsor the race cars. They spend all sorts of money on luxury boxes where they have all sorts of booze and food. You splurge on all of this stuff and obviously you hope that the guy gets boozed up enough that he does not mind signing a big fat check. That is how the boss got into this stuff. One of our vendors invited him down to some place in North Carolina and showed him a great time. Now he thinks that it is a great idea and he wants to do something that is similar, but of course this would work a lot better if it was a sport that the local folk were more interested in. If the Maple Leafs were better it would obviously be better to rent a luxury booth at the Rogers Center for hockey games.
