One of the seminar tents.
One of my biggest complaints about the Rally is the tram service. I haven’t heard exact figures as to how many people are here but it is somewhere between 6,000 and 7,000 (not including the day pass people). That is a whole lot of people to transport and I figured there would be some problems but it was worse than that.
The trams were given a set route they “had” to follow per the rules. That meant that those of us waiting near the end of the pick up route could not get on a tram because they were always full. There were times when we counted 12 to 14 trams pass us before we could finally get on. And it was a really long walk to some of the earlier tram stops. One of the things they should have done was to run every other tram the other direction on the route. But when people tried to talk to them about it, they were told the trams “had to follow the rules”. No flexibility allowed. They were totally disorganized with the tram service after the entertainment in the evenings. It was total chaos.
Bill Cosby was our entertainer on Friday night. What a funny man. He’s 74 years old and his delivery has slowed considerably, but very very funny and entertaining. I couldn’t get a picture of him because of the distance and the fence but they had him on the big screen which helped because his expressions are a lot of his delivery.
After the show we get home and sit outside to visit and pretend we have a campfire going (like in Q).
The wind picked up just a little so we decided we should put our awnings up. Jan’s didn’t want to cooperate and the guys had work to do. Success!
