This is on this week's announcements on the Bonnaroo website. Seems they decided to go ahead and go the debit card route - interesting. Work blocks the sight for me tho - says it is a gambling website.

^Well I might do it put 50 bucks on one, and have it. If it does discounts at centeroo on water, and whatnot it might be worth it. Usually when I go to latenight I put 20-30 bucks in my pocket and put everything else away so I don't lose it. I don't know though the lack of alcohol though means I would still need cash I guess.

well, this is different... but SO GLAD I did not get any of the non-refundable "Woodstock Dollars" that MOST of the vendors at WS'94 didn't want any part of... well, maybe just one would'a been good... for a souveneir
CASH ALWAYS WORKS... and plastic never works... um... in the field
