Rah Cha Cha Ruckus Palnning Commitee Lessons Learned Metting Excitement (sort of...)

Well today was the day we the Rah Cha Cha Ruckus planning commitee was suposed to meet so we could discuss how to bring you a bigger and better Rah Cha Cha Ruckus next year (and belive me, we will).
So I’m comming up Atlantic towards the site and cut through a parking lot to get to the street to enter the site because the street I have to go down to get there is closed becaus eof construction. So what do I see? Police tape everywhere with a cop car parked right behind it with its lights flashing. So I pull back and cut behind the warehouse that is across form the site and come out on the opposite end of where the exit from our site is so I can get to the front enterance (there’s a barb wire fence surrounding our site. Our location isn’t exactly a demilartaized zone but it’s not a resort niether).
Well there’s another cop there to trying to steer traffic around and keep them from going into the nieghborhood. I tell him I need to go into the site and he lets me go by.
So I get inside and go on a computer to find out whats going and find this. Now I’m wondering if we’re going to have a meeting tonight but I don’t have anyone’s number to call them. Ellery shows up at about 5 with his dinner and he’s perplexed by the police presence as well and starts calling people to warn them about the delay. I call in my dinner at Stickylips and have to wait 15 minutes. TOm and Kristen from 1507 show up and I add their order to my order and I go a block over to pick up sneaking around the backside like I came in and nearly bottoming out my truck due to a severe dropoff I couln’t see because it was dark.
It took about 10 minutes to get alll the food and as I’m heading to the car I hear these sounds : pop *PAM PAM PAM * pop WHOA! They’re shooting! SO now I’m thinking there’s no way I’m going to get back into the meeting. But I go back anyways and the cop doesn’t even bother getting out of his car so I just go in right behind Greg who heard the shots as well. We’re both just tripping out on all the excitement and head in for the meeting.
By the time the meeting ended at 9 everything was back to normal in the nieghborhood.
BTW this should show the level of dedication the Ruckus planning commitee has to being you a bigger and better Rah Cha Cha Ruckus next year! Should not that dedication be rewarded with your team comming to participate?
