Only through the annual survey. I'm not sure how much clout one person making one call will have, but I may give it a try. Thanks for the suggestion.

I believe you are correct, and that's my next step. Thanks and I hope everyone who opposes this selfish practice will make their feelings known in the survey. I sure did.

Seems like that would have been the first step, before, drawing up a petition.......

Phone calls are a total waste of time, because the person answering the call can easily write down nothing about the call, and the response to phone complaints is too often: "Well you're the only person who seems to have a problem with this." Calls to congressional offices are often met with ARGUMENTS by office aides!

Complaint phone calls, if recorded on a written phone message pad at all, are often interpreted, summarized and minimized by the person taking the call.

A petition shows the names and numbers of people in favor of it. It can't be ignored as phone calls can. And the wording of the petition in print cannot be mischaracterized to those who make the decisions.

I agree , no blocking off of seats should be allowed.

I'll tell you what I told Sunnyatlast on page 1 . Take your petition or call Janet Tutt at the VCCD,they claim to be " complaint driven ", Ms. Tutt will then go to work for you to resolve this issue,she over see's the Rec. dept. and she has the final word. p.s. I bet u 25% of the folks are outsiders......

Most of the crowding will be better in a couple of weeks. The seat savers don't care what Janet Tutt thinks or what Queen Elizabeth thinks or what the governor or president think. If they wanna save seats, they are gonna do it.

AND there is nothing any of us can do. Period and AMEN...or any of the event staff or the "security" staff (there isn't any) can do. It is NOT a law. Wait until some bouncer bounces someone who belongs to the south American Frinkle association and they say their civil rights were violated. Or someone from New Burnswith, Antartica....You hide and watch. The nasties have the power over the nice folks in this world today.

I agree fully with a petition to eliminate "seat saving"! Show the rude folks that we are tired of their ridiculous attitudes.

AND THEN WHAT???? WHO is going to enforce it and HOW?????

YOU can't fine people who don't live here and own property here. You can't arrest them. They aren't breaking any laws. You can't tell them they can't come back to a public place, and how would you enforce THAT???

People can petition until the cows come home. You can't make them not do it. THe only thing is to hand out chairs, BUT WHEN???????????

I don't intend this to sound mean, but I have never seen any indication that anyone actually reads the surveys, much less do anything about what is written or suggested. If anyone knows otherwise, please let me know.

AGREE! We paid for our home here too and that entitles us to the same privledges as everyone else...This has gotten so out of control, we seldom go anymore. Too much rudeness and entitlement!

In the past there have been follow-up articles by department in The DailySun.
