Yes that post was to cover my friends that stupidly took them which honestly I shouldn't have because that made me look like an a**hole. but getting stopped by the cops is true and the banners were removed from their persons and did receive a fine. The police also informed them that they could have been arrested for this. I apologize for my friends who do not have a vortex and could have possibly ruined a big part of sowo that everyone enjoys. But I will not be claimed a thief. They will not be in attendance with us at any V.A.G shows again.
      So, you lied and were caught in the lie immediately. Now you post faux-indignation at being called a thief. Just stop. Not only are you a bad liar, but your ability to form complete thoughts is almost nonexistent.

      I suggest one of two things: either stop being a fool and potentially ****ing up our shows, or, and perhaps this option is best, just stay home in the future. I prefer the second option because then you won't even have the chance to make the rest of us look bad.

      When names and locations are already known, and you see this, you post in an effort to look as though you aren't responsible.

      I may be a tool, Hell, I'm probably a tool, but I'd rather be a tool than a piece of garbage thief.

      Maybe next year make lots of banners and sell them at a booth, it might help to keep this sort of thing to a minimum. But then again there will always be at least one idiot who will try and take em off the poles anyway.

      Or maybe steel cord through the center of the ones on the poles?

      Not saying anyone is in the right for stealing banners, I personally think it's stupid/disrespectful, but come on its a ****ing banner that was going to get taken down anyways. If the H20 guys are going to go broke over a $10 banners getting stolen, then don't put them up next year. This is one of those things where you just have to chalk it up to **** that happens at a big event.

      LOL look what i started with the instagram post in the ticket thread.

      As for "the banners will get taken down anyways"

      It appears the banners have no year printed on them, which means they prob reuse them each year, if they are stolen they have to have more made. Which is ridiculous.

      This town is not ocean city or east brunswick, they actually like the event and having us, but that will change if this b.s. keeps happening.

      I agree, they should sell them at the Forge booth or something. But this is a cost for someone and that's b.s. The economy is hard enough, and for thieves to think it's ok to steal, get some morals or don't come to the show.

      If you're willing to steal banners, what else are you willing to rip off?

      Center caps? Stuff out of open cars? who knows.

      the same people stealing banner are likely eyeballing other opportunities to steal wheels, center caps, antenna masts, valve stem caps and other items they don't want to pay for. Should we chalk that up to "the cost of going to a show" also?

      anyone who has ever priced promotional banners knows that they are waaaay more then $10! the reason we dont sell our banners is because very few people would be willing to pay over $100 for a banner. and to answer the previous question, we do "try" to reuse our banners each year, if they dont all get stolen (like last year.) and FYI we did auction off two banners to benefit Relay for Life.

      Our Lodge was broken into and items stolen. Probably our last year for SoWo as someone tried to steal my wifes wheels last year but was spooked and her wheel fell off on the way home.

      You "came out" with a fabricated story about you not being involved, and how you saw 2 random strangers outside huddle house who were actually your friends with the stolen banners. Are you honestly telling me now that you considered that the right thing to do.

Have some respect for the people who put this on, especially since there is no registration fee so its not like there is an abundance of cash rolling in.

      BTW underage kids drinking got ticketed, not to mention it does not effect the amount of money that has to be spent again next year. If you enjoy this show being free, dont fvcking steal stuff!
