Something else I forgot in my post.

I know a bunch of people avoided the scalpers and treated them like scum, which I dont entirely disagree with, but they are by the laws of Washington legitimate business men and women. The laws of simple supply and demand come into play. Lots of people want the resource there is only so much resource so the people who have it can charge a premium.

That said, I talked to a few of them, asked how it was going, and joked with the ones who were polite. The overwhelming response I heard was it did not go well for them, they did NOT make nearly as much off the event as they had hoped. I dont think they lost money but it sounded like it wasnt worth their time to stand outside all weekend and yell about tickets. One guy said he got stuck with "Like 20 friday and almost all my sundays." The down side is, there were also fake tickets out there, I dont know what can be done about that, but one enforcer said that people were calling the police on them, scalping is legal, selling counterfit goods is not. One guy was even trying to sell three day passes on friday. Woops didnt get the memo.


Hopefully the bad turn out for them will discourage them and there will be more tickets for real buyers.

LOL. First thing Lord Hosk did when he arrived was give us two boosters of Bumps. I've been sticking them in my packages too. :D

That is in fact a LRR Stamp.

I have two of them, one is just the logo and the other says Loading Ready Run.
