Nice gesture, whatever blah blah, but not sure I would blast this out using social media.

:doh: :smh:

I'd wager 100% of those people would've been happier with a bonus equivalent to the full cost of the trip.

I know that Karen had received other rewards for being named Employee-of-the Year. IDK about the others

Cool gesture. Wish they could be watching in Nats Park.

Why? After what the Cards did last year, I would never accept a trip to watch them play. If you wanted to reward the employees, send them to the games in LA not St Louis

Too cheap to fly 'em to LA and put 'em up in a hotel.      :mg:

I mean if you're an employee, you kinda have to accept something like this graciously.

I'm curious what's covered now.  I'd eat like a king for every meal and not drop a dime in the park.

That is an odd way of expressing thanks, no?  "You employees of the Nats are so awesome we're going to send you to watch ANOTHER team try to do what our team wanted to do, win the National League Pennant, woohooo!"  I mean, that's just a weird thank you gift.

It would make more sense if it was in LA. That way even if you're not as interested in the baseball game, you can still spend time in sunny Hollywood. Who wants a trip to St. Louis?

Exactly what I was wondering.  Second prize is two trips to St Louis.

I don't know what accounting courses you took but wages , bonuses, Xmas gifts, meals , are all deductible even in Obama land ( for now).

Agree.  The fact that it is St. Louis especially is kind of weird taste in my mouth.

Ridiculous, how about giving me a discount on my tickets instead of funding sweet heart giveaways for the service team?

Particularly when they get the 1099 forms.

no 1099 if they are just traveling to an industry event and it's not compensation (Otherwise, yea, they got screwed)
