Interresting that you should note all the traffic that
was on the "closed to traffic" Thomas road! I walked
from Jambo HQ near TP A, to the Thomas road staff area
with too members of Jambo Health and safty! They were
outraged with the numbers of GOLD loopers and other
VIP traffic that got special permits to drive on Thomas road.
The only area that needed access to thomas road, was the
BACK stage area of the arena. There was also a REPORT
in one of the Richmond papers that a GOLD looper hit a M.P.
and was charged with a FEDERAL violation. Something like
failing to yield to the directions of Military Police on
an army base, etc. The Health and Safty people requested
that everyone complain to the highest levels about the
unsafe level of traffic on Thomas road, inlcuding the STAFF
show, and the OA gathering!!!! Maybe if enough people
complain, some one might pay attention!

We had NO car permit and we did NOT even get STAFF Bikes!
And there was no way we could ride 20 inch BMX bikes!!!!!
