    I know it's a mute point now, but why was security so tight getting onto Freemont ? It was worse there than at the airport. Show ID, get scanned, get patted down then a dog sniffs you. After that you get your wrist band.
    I'm just curious that's all. Plus Halloween was totally unbelieveable especially for my, being 68 and living in the country. Once you think you've seen it all there's something else. It was just an endless list of costumes and people.
    If I had know, I've have brought my 2 quart pan and some rope and tied the handle around my waist with the pan hanging in front.. Hence peter pan..
    Alas, there's always next year..
    Have a good time every one !

    Moot.


    I was dismayed with the security as well. It made me wonder what right they had to demand ID etc.

    I decided it was better than getting shot by some drunk hoohah in a fight with Squarebob Spongepants.

    Fremont.

    Keep in mind the city was at the tail end of showcasing an increased police/security presence on FS Experience and FS East. They were sending a message (mostly to local youths bringing in outside alcohol) that the area is no longer their playground.

    Things seem to be back to normal now, as far as security goes. But, typically, these things are cyclical. Things get out of hand and police/security escalate control. Things get better and control de-escalates - until the next time.

    I can't say for certain, but if they were issuing wristbands they were simply checking age with the ID check.

    Yes the world is changing, part of the reason is parents today don't have control of their kids.....if I got into trouble my dad would have kicked my ass. Now all parents want to do is give the kid a time out....I'm not saying you abuse your kids but a good swift kick in the ass didn't hurt me....:peace:
