Default Good News - Bad News

I just got a horrible e-mail from the 'Abbey Road On The River'promoter. They are permanently moving this wonderful event to Louiseville. Good News if you live down south, bad news if you live near Cleveland. I atteneded this years AROTR and liked it so much that I had planned to attend every year. But now I don't know........

Yeah, I got that too. I had heard rumors that that might happen. Louisville is actually pretty close to the same distance from me that Cleveland is, but I have friends in Cleveland and not in Louisville. I'll probably still go if we get invited to perform there again, but it's really a bummer for the people who lived near the old site.

The following is not a knock on AROTR or the fine city of Louisville.
Top 10 Reasons Moving AROTR to Louisville is bad for me:
1. 544 miles....over 9 hour drive.
2. To get there by noon on friday,we would have to leave by 2am thur.
3. It's a heavy travelling holiday weekend (Memorial Day).
4. My girlfriend doesn't want to fly after Sept. 11,2001.
5. Cleveland has the R&R HOF....does Louisville have any music related tradition? When us northerners think of Louisville all that comes to mind is that horserace.
6. Did our heroes ever even set foot in Louisville?
OK....I can only think of seven. Now that he shock of it is wearing off I think I'll look into Amtrak. I would highly recommend AROTR to any Fab Fanatic.

Actually I do think the boys were in Louisville or at least they were supposed to be once.

I'm in Scotland and it is completely impossible for me to get to any event . If they could move it here, that would be great

It hurts my feelings that you think moving AROTR to Louisville is "horrible" news. I live in Louisville. I have been to AROTR for the past few years, and I am thrilled it is moving. Gary said if they stayed in Cleveland, they couldn't afford to have the event anymore. It is less expensive here. You'll have just as much fun in Louisville. It's a great city. Our riverfront park is wonderful. If anyone needs help making hotel reservations or needs help with directions, let me know. We are friendly in KY, and we wear shoes and can read. It's actually a big arts community. Don't be afraid to come here. You'll like it!

Sorry Shelly, I'm not knocking Louisville.....I'm just dissapointed that they moved AROTR 500 miles south. I can think of one more thing that Louisville is famous for...Cassius Clay - Muhammed Ali. And there is a Clay - Ali link to the Beatles.....we've all seen that photo of him and the Fabs.

shelly, the only reason that we're upset that it's being moved is that it'll be so far from us who live in cleveland. nothing personal at all we're not really trying to diss louisville as a city, we're just trying to defend arotr in cleveland which seems kind of pointless now... haha

T'know what, I don't think we need two topics about this...I am going to close this one, as the one in the News forum has the press release and everything...
