I figured that there would be some disgruntled neighbors, but dang: http://www.hpherald.com. Article on page 2; letters to the editor begin on page 4.
Of course, we know that those with negative feedback usually are the ones to speak out about anything while those with neutral or positive comments say nothing, but it's disheartening to read 1.) such an obviously skewed article (I find it hard to believe that the permit was only for 500 people) and 2.) letters from neigbors who sounded beyond inconvenienced. I definitely know that's not the intent of the organizers and most of the attendees (though I do have to wonder about the idiots who think it's okay to trespass on private property and those who think it's cool to pee on public or private property).
I hope a good solution can be found for next year, and am willing to do WHATEVER I can to make it so.
P.S. Alan, please check your PMs.
