I've noticed that all activities seem to be geared towards residents or members of Horseshoe Bay Resort. Why else would you post events and SOME locations and not include a MAP! Has it ever occurred to you that visitors may not know where these streets are. or where the events are being held, or where the best viewing places for fireworks are? We recently moved here and still don't know where everything is. How about including a map location of where events are held plus a map of the land/boat parade route? Also, I was under the impression that to play golf here, you had to be a member of one of the 4 expensive golf clubs. If that is so, and people like myself can not play here, then why tout the golf courses in brochures and advertisements and just casually leave out the mention in the ad that you have to be a member to play? Is Horseshoe Bay tourist friendly? I think not. Is it senior citizen friendly? Definitely NOT! Most retirees like myself can not afford the club memberships and we are buying a house on the golf course!!! Doesn't make any sense to me.

Oh, I see...it that "we can do it, but you can not" kind of outlook on things.
All these people getting "special privledges" to do fireworks while the rest of us can't has only made me realize I need to make a trip to Dallas and buy my own fireworks.

So many out of towners will be rushing into town to see these firework shows since their own counties banned them outright that it isnt worth the risk involved to venture out. San Marcos cancelled their show for this exact reason. Not the drought, the crowds.
Prediction: More trouble will come from these "carefully organized" tiny firework shows than what would have come from individuals doing their own fireworks and bbq's down at the local Lakes. The heat alone will bring out the worst in some who may party a bit too much.
