Interesting, might have to go just for the KMG FireBall. Cool 18 for armbands is pretty good deal, do they do that everyday or just certain days? I know that's hard too, on the workers. I've done armband days on Inners Shows before, it can wear you out...for the unruly kinda people that don't want to follow the rules and want to skip folks in line and not obey the ride's rules or operator's rules.

Of course we have chicken bog or chicken soup as some of you northerners called it. chicken and rice for others. robbie and i were talking about you the other day paul. great day today. over 12,000, weather cooled off and vendors had a gooooood day or the ones i talked to did. some food vendors ran out of products, people scrambling for change. what a problem to have. games seemed to be getting some action. armbands or tickets are everyday. forecast is clear and cooler for the next few days and checks are in the mailbox monday.
