QUOTE(Capt'n Rob @ May 14 2003, 10:50 PM)Why did the Thunderfest go down the tubes? Who promoted it?
I generally have brain farts when repeating info, but i'm pretty sure Chrysler (or one of the big three) is not a sponsor this year. I heard thid from one of my clients last weekend.
I know CK!! For me, this is one of the biggest "jump-starts" to my sumer income
A SOLID 7-10 days of hard work
"they are working out something for august, tho, for a 3 day party down thataway on the water. and a hottiefest in july...MAYBE. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! " CK
and the official word on WHY it's not happening is because they (meaning the people running the thunderfest) still owe money from last year that they can't cover.
i don't know what could have happened for them to still owe, unless the roosterail took $$away from them? (this is only my totally uneducated guess) i mean, the RT WAS charging EXORBERANT rates for parking...but i'm sure that's only the beginning.
but that's my official word from the thunderfest peeps.
Don't worry CK. We have better things going on up here anyway.
Like........SOSCL AT JACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!Baby Baby Baby!
Let's Rock this lake. Were gonna rock and roll like no tomorrow. Raise a ton of loot. Rebuild the lights. Party some more. Then sit back, and say look at those 150 year old lights shining on, we did that. Then Party some more!
Ha HA HA HA HA HA hA HA!
Let's get pumped Baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Figures, I have never been to Thundserfest. Always say I'm going to go and never make it. Now it is no more. Same thing happened with the Dead ... aww, I'll see them next year. Then Jerry dies and I'm screwed, never got to see them!
I have been a volunteer for the Thunderfest for the past 10 years and driving one of the rescue boats for the past five. I think it is very sad that the city of Detroit and the Thunderfest organization would let this happen. It is not like having money trouble was something new this year.
