They are a joke! The whole "cheetah pack" is ridiculous. And the only reason they even sell nasty food at the fair is to support their competition cheer leading which is a joke as well!

I ate there every time I went to the fair this year and last. Their food was great, prices were low and everyone in their concession booth was very nice.
I think it was great having a team that's new to the area perform as entertainment for the pageants this year. I think some people may be jealous they were not invited to perform for the 100th celebration.
Can't wait to sign my kids up there for summer classes and during the school year.

Yea no jealousy here!
Just the truth! Nothing less.. Seen way better kids perform elsewhere in this community! Some of those children do not even have proper attire! A tank top and shorts are hardly acceptable for children to be out in public performing in. And no mats at the fair can we say hazardous!

Goes to show you that their girls and boys don't need expensive leotards to be good at what they do. Its not all about looks, its about talent. Proper attire for gymnastics and cheer doesnt require a wedgy-giving leotard with no shorts to cover their buttcheeks. They were awesome on the stage, mats or no mats. It takes alot of talent and courage to perform like they did all week after a show the previous weekend. They worked hard to put on a show and I think the kids should not be put down for doing a sport they love. That is pathetic to say about children! Very very disrespectful.

Shoot idk who they even are but they were rude as all get out!!! And the prices for the crappy food?? I have an 18 month old who is like a garbage disposal will eat anything and wouldn't eat it. And I couldn't jump up as soon as she yelled she screamed my name rudely, I was dealing with my son she continued to scream my last name probably 20 times in 15 seconds I kept saying I was coming. I told her I was sorry she rolled her eyes & said 'its fine' didn't even let me ask for gee, I don't know, napkins? Non sitting out gross mayo?? EW. the lady who took my order? Rude as all get out too. Lighten up ladies! SMILE. Yeah I know your stuck up you could tell you'd never really worked fast food or WORKED for that matter lol you all were ridiculous. My poor son cried cause you all were talking so dang mean.

My daughter is on that team and she has worked hard to be able to do the things she does. And the ladies at the pageant wouldn't allow them to have mats, not their choice. Yes my daughter had bruises on her hands but she loves doing it and she is awesome. Obviously some people are just jealous of all of these wonderfully talented children...

Did you work concession at the fair? Maybe MANNERS should be taught to you all before you dance or whatever? Lol funny how its jealousy when I'm 23 and have a little boy and just saying you all were stuck up rude & b!tchy. Can I PLEASE have my money back? I asked there but was refused cause I 'got what I paid for instead of arguing tell me where to complain, thanks!

Oh I tried to give you your nasty food back too. There was a gnat INSIDE my childs burger on the tomato. How did that go unnoticed? I was ignored for other customers that hadn't already paid.

Listen. If you had any idea what these kids do, you would respect it a little more. They work hard and love what they do. If you didn't like it, you didn't have to watch them. But it makes me proud that our small area has come up with something so great.
And you think the cheer team is a joke? You should sit it in on just one practice and you would see how stupid and wrong that statement is. Or see how they WORK IT at a competition. They did amazing this season at competitions, and it was their first year, ever.
And with the concessions? Were you working in there? No. You have no idea how hectic it was and how hard they were trying. Anytime I went the food was great and the people were friendly. Do you realize that they are parents and are doing this as volunteers?
So please, do yourselves a favor and have even the slightest idea as to what you're talking about. These people are great, and the cheer and gymnastics teams are amazing.

I never knocked the girls down. Its whatever whoopie for them lol. Cheerleaders! Yay! But uh, you think the parents volunteering to sell food to raise money for the girls could be nice. And yes, I do know how hectic it is in food service. Who cares if they volunteered!? BE NICE when people are paying 5$ for a flippin cheeseburger to help this team out. We don't owe them anything! We, attending the fair, didn't ask them to come there. They chose to do it should've known it would be hard beforehand & done it with a smile on their faces to raise money. Not act like everyone was inconveniencing them. Or be snobby as all get out. My son was crying and it made them mad I couldn't jump as soon as they yelled my name. Wow real nice. Again, id like my money back I was refused at the fair. Guess I'll call the school & complain???? Again bugs in my food - not so great. I was feeding it to my BABY & your defending them? Wow

I ate the booth everyday and all the workers were extremely nice and friendly. I never seen any dissatisfied customers and everyone was talking about how great the girls did during their performances. Thank you awesome people for bringing a wonderful thing to our community!

Well again, yay for you but that surely did not happen for me! Guess it was my sweet little baby that pissed them off? Cause I saw the order yelling girl yell at quite a few people, roll her eyes & huff & puff if anything was asked of her. They got mad when I asked for mayo that hadn't been roasting in the sun. You shoulda seen em when I brought my food back!

They were the busiest booth the entire fair (only ones open before gates did and sold breakfast to the fair committee when no one else would, even stayed open after gates closed to make sure people got fed) if they got grouchy one day, it was probably because they were there Sun-Sat from 7am-1am and it was the same generous people every day. They were always courteous to the fair committee, the police officers on ground, and the carnival workers every day. Even took one to the hospital out of the goodness of his heart (I know that because that man came to us and told us that we picked angels to be in that booth) I am thankful we allowed them to come back this year and can't wait to see them next year. I honestly think they would give your money back if you asked them because they are great people! I hope that none of them have seen this ridiculous post bashing their talented children and starting something so stupid over a meal.
luv the fair

Never bashed their kids. Are you illiterate? And btw, if someone acted that way at mcdonalds, hardees wherever they would've gotten in trouble. Those parents didn't do anything great. They made bad food with bad service. Why was I ignored? I tried to bring my food back. But once they got my $$$$ they didn't care! They chose to come do it. Stop making them seem like heros for making burgers LOL people do that everyday for a lot less & are a lot nicer with a lot more people to serve!

I dont have any idea what you are talking about. I am the one that made the decision to refund the money. The couple of people that did come back either got their money or exchanged their food, whichever they wanted. You would have gotten the same thing if you would have asked. Our food was the cheapest at the fair. Our burgers were NOT $5.00, they were $3.50. I appologize if you mistakenly thought our workers were being rude to you. We were trying to get everyones food to them as fast as we could. I know all of these people personally and I am 100% sure they were not intentionally rude to you or anyone else. As far as the gnat in your food. you ARE eating outside. We kept all of our food covered. That gnat could have flown in your food after you recieved it just as well as it could have flown in our containers when we opened the lids. Like I said it was outside. I am amazed that someone could get so upset and bash us like you are doing over $7.00. If you would email me your name and address I will gladly refund your money to you. [email protected]

Thanks to everyone else for their kind words and Thank you to the fair committee for allowing us to be there. I am glad you enjoyed us being there. We look forward to it again next year.

The person at the beginning of this thread that put our children down. Our children ran their routine that they normally run on a 40ft X 42ft mat. To go from that large of a mat to that small of a stage was amazing for them to pull off in one day. Our Cheetah Pack, if the fair was the first and only time you have seen them, then you are missing out. Like I said that was a very small stage and they just didnt have the room to perform their bigger tricks. Our children know no adversity. They can work through anything and have proved many times this past year. Our children are extremely talented whether it be our cheer teams, the Cheatah Pack or the children that are just tumbling in a class. They all work very hard and they dont deserve being put down by you or anyone else.

Their food was great. And yeah they did put shirts over top of their uniform. They are a GREAT team, they NEVER got below 2nd place in any competition. They think of each other as sisters and brothers! So if you have a probably with them dont do it behind a computer go to the couches faces!!
