Lyle Winfield '99 (15) RE: Winfield '99 19 Sep 99


The theme of Winfield is to "pass the music on." My grandchildren have been going there for the past 11 years (except for the smallest who is only three) and we have always felt safe letting them be anywhere on the grounds. Like Bob Redford said about the searching of ALL things that you bring into the grounds, "If you object to the search, don't come!" I, and the other 12000 people who have been going there for many years, support that wholeheartedly. There are tons of us who go for the music, and a lot more who go for the music AND the jams. When the fences come down and it disintegrates into something like the Woody Guthrie Festival at Okemah OK, (formerly held at Tulsa) it would be just another dumpy little festival. Right now it is simply the absolute best festival in the known universe.

One other thing -- maybe the music should be free; but I for one am happy to pay even more so that the performers can make a living! (Maybe Art T would agree????)

Lyle, who just took children and grandchildren there for 4 days to "pass the music on!"
