BBB: Beware of Not-So-Fun ‘Fun’ Runs

 

The Better Business Bureau has been hearing lots of complaints from around the country about various fun runs that have been cancelled with short notice, often with no refunds. Last week, BBB of Greater Cleveland reported on a 5K Foam Fest that was cancelled with just four days’ notice. An email to paid participants said “Unfortunately, we’re not able to provide you with a refund.” A similar event scheduled for southern California was also cancelled with the same “no refund” email. The race website says they have ceased operations as of July 17. Another race company has offered Foam Fest participants a discount code for future theme races.

Specialty Plates Drive $25M to Texas General Revenue

The state’s specialty license plate vendor, License Plates of Texas, LLC, operating as MyPlates.com has met its current contract $25,000,000 revenue obligation to the State of Texas, four months ahead of schedule.

You may (or may not) know that I have been a professional singing drummer since I was in high school.

I happened to see a link to this article on Facebook; it pretty well confirms what I and other drummers have known for a long time: drumming is good for your health!
