The barn was at the bottom of the first hill. You had to walk by it to get from the parking area to the festival area. After you got past the barn you walked up a large hill. The hill surrounded the festival site on (3) sides. There was a valley between the first hill and the stage. We were camped at the top of the firt hill facing the stage. On Friday morning you could walk past the barn without any problems. As the day and weekend went on it got worse. I believe the bikers were the Madison Outlaws. Later on Friday and on Saturday you had to give the barn a wide berth to avoid problems. A lot of the items mentioned above could have happened but I don't remember anyone getting killed. I think a guy who was with a girl I had taken to Kickapoo Creek got beat up. Sometime in the middle of the afternoon on Saturday things intensified and the bikers started charging up the hill at the hippies. They got about 1/3 of the way up when all of sudden the hippies realized that there were thousands of them and maybe only (50) bikers. All of a sudden the tide changed and thousands of hippies charged the bikers down the hill. The bikers ran like hell and tried to get out of there. The hippies caught (2) of the bikers on their bikes and trashed the bikes. After that things mellowed out.
