JOHNSTOWN — Events wrong to ride Thunder’s coattails

To the people who have spent so many hours throughout the years to make Thunder in The Valley a great event in Johnstown – thank you.

I would also like to thank you for being so humble in how your organization is handling the way that you have been treated by the Richland and Ebensburg promoters of their events. Without Thunder, I do not think that those two venues could make it on their own.

Therefore, I am suggesting that these two events change their dates and quit riding on the backs of the Johnstown event. Or they could raise up their heads next year and rejoin the group instead of trying to be so greedy.

Thanks again, Johnstown, and may you never get stabbed in the back again.
