I was there and I do remember the biker vs hippie war. I was looking for info on the incident and came across your post. As I remember it the bikers were in a barn and were raping women. A guy who's girl friend had been abducted by the bikers (outlaws I believe)tried to rescue her and was murdered with an axe. Some of the drug dealers had guns and there was a kind of a gun battle. I remember waking up to the rumbling of people running away from the gun fire and hearing what I thought were fireworks going off. I also herd one or two of the bikers were killed. Does anyone else remember the incident.
