As one of the volunteers, I'm glad it went smoother overall, although at the beginning it was crazy. The fairgrounds at the last minute supplied people to help, which meant CJ had to reorganize the volunteer shifts the night before, my guess is just hours before gates opened. And then there was a lot of people who signed up to volunteer who didn't show up.
Then there was the confusion about sending people to the back gate, when that was only for staff, volunteers and autox. Signs would've been good, but I'm not sure that would've been possible given the last minute changes this year.
Music...yeah I agree. Would've liked to hear some swing, jazz, salsa and good ol' rock n roll mixed in.
Weather helped out though. Considerably cooler this year than last.
