Yes. My name is CJ, and I was from Mason City, iOWA. iN FACT, I was camped next to some people, one being a really, really nice girl. Very cute. As I remember, I had left for the night, into the crowd for the concert, and upon returning to camp, our neighbors were distraught that the girl had been abducted by bikers. They were looking frantcly for her. I draw a blank here, but remember that the following morning there was a great commotion. We were leaving, the girl we were told had been raped by "bikers", maybe "Outlaws", and as we left, I saw people chasing several bikers out of the gounds. A friend of mine, also there, told me later that a guy had been axed, and bikers also had been injured by someone with a pitch-fork.

Aside from that, this is the first time in maybe 25 years that I have thought of that concert. Aside from the really sweet girl having been attacked, I had a ball there. I had forgotten all about Crow, and now remember that I just loved them. I think the Amboy Dukes werethere, too? Thanks for the memories.
