First off, I am not aware of any such requirements from the campgrounds, but I will look into it ... but from the sounds of the majority of responses, the deposits are being applied to the total camping fees, and I think that's reasonable. And yes, it would have been nice if the CG had informed me of said deposits so that I could have at least passed along the info here and on my own website.
The bigger issue, for me, is that the grumblers posted and started a gripe, here, without ever calling or e-mailing me and letting me know first, so that I could try to alleviate any problems. We are still the hosts and promoters, and it is our job to confirm, deny, and/or rectify any issues that we are able to.
And, let's be clear about one thing, O.K. ... last years management is NOT this years management, so please don't be projecting any unpleasantness from last year onto this year. My dealings with the new ownership/management have, thus far, been cordial, friendly, and very accommodating ... I really don't think they want to jeopardize the revenues they receive from this event!
So how about that from now on, if anyone has issues with any part of this event, let me know FIRST so that I can address the problem(s) and try to rectify any misunderstandings. The last thing any of us want is for anyone to come away from the Dam Gathering with anything less than a pleasant experience (taking into consideration, of course, that there are some things that are out of our control or even influence) ... we're all committed to making it a Dam Good Time, to the best of our abilities ... ...! As always ...
