If I was Bells, I'd load it up and get it out of there. Leave them nothing!

I agree. Make this as difficult as possible for the crooks being left behind.

BTW... does anyone know what's going on with Zingo? Is that getting packed up to make the move?

Acoustic Viscosity's avatar I really hope Zingo survives. I'm kicking myself for not making it down there last year, deciding to wait for the new woodie. :(

rollergator's avatar If I were Robbie Bell, I'd take Zingo, the Skyride, and everything else that wasn't concreted in place....then I'd get out the jackhammers and start taking out things that ARE concreted in place. Then I'd sue the pants off of the "Fair" Board...

The price on the Skyride, for the Board, would be a Dr. Evil-esque 100 million dollars...no WAY would I leave *anything* behind for the Board to try and claim some sort of victory for the City of Tulsa.

The board approved the purchase of the skyride today.....but they still haven't adjusted the "removal" date.

There is a lot going on right now in regard to this soap opera that one day will come to light. I don't know what I can say or can't say, so I'll just remain silent. But just know that selling the sky ride wasn't necessarly a bad thing.
