Important Event Admission Information
Members and Families:
For years, the Illinois Recreational Cheerleading Association has included event taxes as part of admission pricing. Since that time, we have seen steady increases in both sales and entertainment taxes required to be collected by both State and local entities.
In order to comply with these tax structures, the IRCA Board has determined to simplify the entrance process for spectators at our events, spectator pricing will now be $8.00 per person for all IRCA "Presents" events with the exception of Solid Gold Cheer which will be $9.00 per person and State which will be $13.00 per person. Children ages 3 and under will continue to enter free of charge. Parking will also remain free of charge for all of our events.
While we did round up by a few cents, we feel this will be easier for our guests to not have to carry change and also make the entrance process go more smoothly. For State, we were able to round down slightly in order to even out all pricing.
We would greatly appreciate if you would pass this information on to your families ahead of the event dates so there are no "surprises" at the door. The IRCA is in the process now of updating all event packets to note the increased pricing.
Please be advised that the IRCA always tries to maintain its pricing, however we had no choice in this instanced because we must comply with government regulations. Kindly explain to families the costs of operating such events. Education is the key to our success here!
Thank-you in advance for your understanding. We look forward to a wonderful 2013 season!
