Entered for Retroronde - 25 Euros for an informal ride out the Paterberg and Koppenberg on Saturday, a Retro-crit around the centre of Oudenaarde in the evening followed by a 100km ride on Sunday - all with a great, informal atmosphere. The 50 quid saved will pay for a heap of beer for Saturday night!
I think the best way to tell the organiser what we think of the prices is to not enter, they will get the message. Also Italian food in yorkshire what that about (as ugo will probably atest Italian food in britain is not quite the same). Fish and chips (with scraps) and a pint should be all that is offered.

For those like me who would prefer the real deal http://cyclingtips.com.au/2012/10/leroica/ and an extract from the offical Italian L'Eroica website "L'Eroica is a Foundation, the purpose of which is to safeguard the heritage of the white gravel roads of Tuscany. This was the motivation behind the cycling event which started in 1997."
All a bit Rapha and out of my price range.
