My wife and I did not attend the Jubilee this year - it was the very first one that we did not go. Our reasons were many - my wife has some mobility problems, and we cannot move around too much. The reduction of sites in Old Sacramento (our preferred location) and the change in the mix of the bands were two of the factors in our consideration of whether we could afford to attend. (I recognize that site location in Old Sac is often not within the Jubilee's control...) It was a very difficult decision since we have planned our Memorial Day weekends around the Jubilee.
I applaud the new leadership and the DJML members who have contributed so much to changing the direction in which the Jubilee is headed. Everyone has their preferences and biases, but the most important point is to make the Jubilee financially sound and to introduce a varied (and younger) audience to the marvelous music offered.
I hope that we will be back in future years.
The opinions expressed in the letter which began this thread are, in my humble opinion, crap.
Offered for whatever my thoughts are worth...
