Start saving now, because you will probably do it again in 2014.


:lol:
Indeed, lots of sounding like the badly hungover drunk, or the crashing junkie.

Soon enough the DTs will set in, and everyone will go looking for their fix.

That's an unreasonably greedy increase. Especially when you charge an additional $20 a head for coming into the festival on wednesday. Hell, they had music on wednesday.

Might as well mention the fact that their beer prices were apparently $5 last year. This year they were $6, and then bumped to $7 for the weekend.

We protested, and didn't buy a single beer inside the venue. We were also lucky that we were camped right outside the Mushroom Stage entance/exit. So going in and out and when we felt like a cocktail was no issue.

Who owns SOS anyway? A group, family, or individual?

Indeed, I do believe he was :D

And I can sympathize. As with many aspects of SOSMP, the fee increases have no evident relation to their costs or services offered.

This ain't fricken' Nascar. I had a coworker, he stopped doing Daytona 500 when the fees to park his RV went, in two years, from $300/wk to $800/wk. That was for a hard piece of ground, no portolets, no trash service, no dump station, no water, no tickets to any events, nothing.

As I primitive camp, the $20/pp Wed night fee kills me. That is standard now for the park; I see it at SpringFest and MagFest. Sixty bucks for me, my wife and son, to drop my tent a day early?? For nothing offered, on their end. It's a SIYA fee: a Stick It In Your Ass fee :x

Twenty bux to camp Wed night at Wanee? At least there's some music. But in the end, it's just another fee that should be included as part of your ticket. Since the beginning, Mag / SpringFest have been four days of music w/ four nights camping included; Wanee should do the same.

The high fees and double-digit percent increases for you folks that do full hookups, I can only offer my condolences. As I someday *will* have a trailer / RV, it's not exactly a rosy picture, going forward...
:(

It is family owned. From the SOSMP website:

For twenty-four years the Cornett family has owned and operated this nearly 1,000 acre park and has expanded it from camping into a full music venue with year-round events.

Called again. Still $200 for Magfest. I think I might do Magfest over Wanee this year.
