Wow. People still going about Stevenís Point in 2014? And me, I guess in 2015.

Think it was 1970 when I attended.

I remember the lines being so long, after a long drive to get in, we pulled alongside the road in to sleep.

Does anyone remember the line-up?
I know Ravi Shankar played, as did Crow.

Naked, shaggy, stoned guy standing ontop of a truck chucking free watermelon slides into the crowd [ostensibly] to feed them & I think took out a few people who didnít see the missiles coming.

I remember the porta-pots reeking & being inadequate for the crowd, overflowing & you couldnít take a leak behind a tree without someone being there.

Drove offsite to find a lake park to clean up after 2 days & the apparent biker incidents the night before. The next morning the incident(s) was/were claimed to be that some bikers tried to rape & a contingent from the crowd marched up to get to demand they leave & were fired on. There was a police roadblock. Guy (biker, if I recall correectly) getting busted, we thought for dope - he suddenly broke toward our car & tried to force the driver over & hijack us, but got hauled away.
