fact there wasn't any public transportation in this
town. Is it still being so or did they kind of "evolve"
a bit and got in touch with civilization in the meantime?...
From what I have heard, the public transportation issue is pretty much
as it has been in the past. I understand that at the first convention they
hired shuttle busses to carry people back and forth, between the hotel and
the fairgrounds. At the second convention that provision had not been made
and some people got stuck, on Saturday, at one place, or the other, because
the public busses didn't run on Saturday. Of, course, I don't know what, if
any, arrangements have been made for the 2006 convention. I did email them
the above information, but have not heard anything back, so far. I have
just emailed them again, citing some of the concerns expressed here. Don't
know if I will hear anything back, or not. I'll let you all know if I do.
- There is public tansport of a sort, a trolley that runs north & south along Main Street.
