I personally do not place much faith in this financial report, you can make numbers say whatever you want them to say if you know what your doing!

I suppose without the threat of the evil casino coming in that both revenues and counts will go up. If not, I'm sure they will be begging Mr. LeVan for money.

Then again, I thought that without the casino in the area we were to see all the tourist...

We used to give every time we visited, but with the high rates of admission we think that should be more than enough for a visit. We rarely go now. Pity too.
It is a place you visit once. The battlefield and local, hotels dining are enjoyable. The Center is OK but should be free. incompetence on steroids. And throw in some greed?

The old museum was free.

This one is just way too expensive to visit. And they want to raise the admittance fee. Are you kidding!?
No one is visiting now because of the cost.

Once again we see John Latschar's "magic" hand when he assured everyone that so many people would view the film that the museum.

Now it's all clear. The numbers were phony and now the Americam people pay for Latschar's "brilliant" business plan.

He should go to work on Wall St.

His magic hand more involved what he was doing with his hand while he was viewing all that porn.

Pretty soon you will discover that you will have to pay to visit selected "prime" portions of the battlefield (Little Round Top, Devil's Den, the High Water Mark/Ziegler's Grove) because the "wear & tear" of visitors (Y'know, Americans "love their National Parks to death.") places too much strain on the historic resources. Charging an admission fee to visit "prime" areas will reduce visitation to those key areas (and reduce "wear & tear") and also provide a new revenue stream to the Gettysburg Foundation. Hold onto your wallets.

"We're just so busy. We want to be transparent. We don't want people to think we're not giving (information) to them." -- Dru Neil --

Hmm, my printout of the financial documents from the Foundation skipped pages 16, 17, 18, 19, and 20. Those were the pages of Schedule B, Lists of Donors. Good thing the Foundation is being so "transparent." (irony)

Now hold on a gosh-darned tootin' red minute here!!
We were told that former Supt. John Latschar was the ONLY qualified candidate to become President of the Gettyburg Foundation because of his skills & knowledge as a fundraiser and because of his great people skills. Now the Foundation tells us that they are no longer heavily-involved in the fundraising business model. So why were they so dadgum hot to hire him when his skills were not congruent to the business model to which they were moving?
Do they think we'uns all fergit these things?
Dagnabbit!!!
Yes!
