In the VIP area. Where else? (Sorry, couldn't resist).

If you can buy your way into the VIP tent, then that means most of us are not. Just sayin.

I agree with this. Too often some of our friends and neighbors look for some underhanded goings-on. Clearly, this was simply a money making vehture for the company that made it happen. I chose not to give them my money. Just not a big deal. BTW - they seemed to have recognized a gap, because it sold out.

here is my problem with the VIP seating... I've been here 17 yrs. and it never mattered if you lived in a Villa or a premier home once you left your home everyone was equal to all the FREE programs and events.. The dream of Harold Schwartz.. I have no idea where anything was or would have been setup if not for the rain.. what I think is wrong is for someone to be able to cordon off a section and say this is for VIPS's if you want to have PRIME seating and a direct entrance to guarantee to get on the dance floor you must pay... it has always been my understanding and have heard the announcements hundreds of times NO SAVED SEATING .. I guess now they will have to change that recording to unless you have $50

Ureout. I agree. If any part of the square regularly available to everyone was blocked off for VIP paid space, that is not right.

Ya know, I hadn’t given it much thought, but I think you’re right! This isn’t in keeping with the Villages tradition and one of the beautiful things about TV. This may have been a trial balloon to see how it would be accepted. The more I think about it, the less I find it acceptable. Think of all the events where this special “VIP” class/status symbol could be applied. A slippery slope.

I agree with above, and will go one step further, and state this needs to be stopped and stopped now.
