It was a fun event until we left and my car had been towed from the back of bel air liqour store! Some of that lot is not clearly marked to not park there and used to be used as overflow for Looneys. Will certainly not patronize that store and will think twice before attending another such event.

Thanks Eleanor! Alan ... There wasn't a rain date, there was a change in location. The decision was made at 1pm after Looney's graciously offered to host our Ravens Rally and reported on the Bel Air Downtown Alliance and Patch websites, as well as, several Facebook pages of local organizations.

How was non computer owners to know?Maybe a decision in advance knowing that the chance of rain was high for an indoor venue instead of waiting till a few hours before the event time.What is inside the armory used for?

Scott. Guess you should of rented the good year blimp and advertised change that way. Drop flyers from it. Some people just need to complain about something. This guy probably turns game of if Ravens lose coin flip. Great event

And non computer owners. How did you leave a message? Pony express?

As far as having your car towed.. Not only is liquor store private property but Looneys very nicely posts signs on their doors that say DO NOT PARK AT BEL AIR LIqours or You will be towed. Looneys also has another free standing sign in front of door that says overflow parking available at the county Bldg across the street. It is nice of Looneys to posts these signs but guess the can't force people to read them.

Have you ever heard of newspapers,TV ,Radio...I believe that most events prior to the computer were advertised...

It was an awesome event. Notification of place change due to weather was every where that you heard about the event earlier in the week. Thank you Looneys for allowing this great event in doors. Lets hope we have a Super Bowl Rally next!

As long as they weren't drinking, what's the problem?
Sheeple January 13, 2013 at 01:54 PM
Come on, Alan is your life really that sad?
Sheeple January 13, 2013 at 01:56 PM
There is a sign on Looney's not to park on Bel Air Liquors lot, so that's your own fault.
Sheeple January 13, 2013 at 01:59 PM
Really? were they going to see beer and become drunks later in life? Come on!
Sheeple January 13, 2013 at 02:01 PM
By the way welcome to my hometown Bel Air is two words!

Alan, you seem to be on the computer now. Things happen and maybe you should have been a little proactive to ensure the location because of rain if you didn't have access to a computer or smart phone. The Bel Air Downtown Alliance had an opportunity with the help of Looney's to change the location, good for them! Seemed like a lot of people got the message. Thank you Bel Air Downtown Alliance for putting together this party for the Raven's fans!!!
