Venue and Ticket Stub Magnets for Summer 2011

Phans Rich, Jen and Autumn have created some unique collectible venue magnets for Summer 2011. These 2″ round magnets commemorate some of the most photogenic venues to be visited by Phish this summer. Magnets are made from 3/16″ Lucite and 30mm magnetic backing, making a nice heavy little magnet that can easily hold 4 full sheets of paper. (Not 5, they tested.) All artwork is original and a combination of pencil drawing, photography, hand-cut stencil, spray paint and electronic manipulations. These magnets are all phan-made right here in the USA.

Please specify which magnet(s) you want in the notes of your Paypal payment below. Discounts apply to all purchases of 2 or more, drop a line if you want more than 3.  Magnet(s) will ship out the day after payment is made. These are a great little gift for the people you are hitting the shows with! 2″ round magnets are 1 for $5, 2 for $8, 3 for $10.

You can also turn your ticket stubs into a heavy, lucite magnet. We all have them: stacks of ticket stubs that sit in some dark corner of our homes, rarely seen, rarely considered. Why not bust them out and use them to hold up things on your fridge? These ticket stub magnets are made from YOUR ticket stub(s) and are a great way to preserve and display your little pieces of history. To get these made, you simply send your stubs to Rich, Jen and Autumn where they will cold-press the stubs and trim them if they need it, then place them under 3/16″ Lucite and adhere the finished product to a 30mm magnetic backing, creating a nice heavy magnet in the size of the original ticket. Ticket magnets are shipped back to you with delivery confirmation and insurance within 48 hours. Pick stubs that will look good together on the fridge or anything you want to preserve (Big Cypress for example). While mint-stubs come out looking better, but even the most beat up old creased stub looks better under some Lucite! Lucite will never yellow or crack.

Camping at Yasgur’s Farm for Phish at Bethel Woods? Read this

Update: Developments on May 17th

The town of Bethel and Yasgur’s Farm are working to rectify the situation as previously described. Per the article in the Times Herald Record Sturm said the town will allow Howard and Abramson — and other homeowners with temporary camping permits — to have as many as 10 people per campsite. That means Roy and Jeryl can have 250 people on their property that weekend. The town is allowing one additional campsite per parcel than town code allows.” While this explains where 250 people of the 1000+ will be able to stay, Sturm does go on to say that in the Sullivan County-Democrat that ““We did not mention nor request cancellation of camping,” Sturm pointed out. In fact, he added, “the Town of Bethel is not requiring the cancellation of anything”” which reflects a change in position from over the weekend.

With an influx of fans and the potential for a situation that could have gotten out of control, this is a positive development that lessens the possibility of problems that could have developed from fans being turned away. While the issue of the $25,000 fine stands for Roy and Jeryl to deal with, it is better to know that fans will have their reservations honored and that we will all get IN.

Original post:

If you are heading to Bethel next week for the Phish shows and staying at Yasgur’s Farm campground, you might want to look into another place to stay. The owners of Yasgur’s Farm, Roy Howard and Jeryl Abramson to pay a $25,000 fine for violating a signed 2007 agreement that forbids a mass gathering on their property. And it looks like no camping will be allowed on the grounds over the Memorial Day Weekend, let alone the late night post-Phish shows that have been announced for the past two months, reports a source familiar with the events surrounding the brewing debacle.

In 2006, in order to stave off a continuing legal battle with the Town of Bethel, Roy and Jeryl signed an agreement that they would have no mass gatherings on their property without proper permits or face a $25,000 fine. Past history dating back to the 1980s suggests a fragile at best relationship with the Town of Bethel highlighted with issues surrounding the Woodstock reunions held each August on Yasgur’s Farm.

Fans who signed up for the festival had no idea this was happening behind the scenes are in a sticky situation to find a place to stay in an area devoid of local hotels and campgrounds with accessibility to the venue with reasonable limits. Fans are already staying as far away as Pennsylvania in the sprawling rural southern-Catskill area that has not been seen as an attractive tourist destination beyond the original Woodstock Festival in 1969 and concerts at Bethel Woods, opened in 2006. Phish is possibly the first multi-night event at the venue and with the influx of fans that are expected, including a sold out show on Saturday, the situation between the Town of Bethel and Roy and Jeryl has come to a head and affects the fans who booked their reservations unknowing that they would be voided by the town mere days before their expected arrival.

If you are one of the 1000+ paid reservations for camping at Yasgur’s Farm, you will not be allowed to camp there and need to find a new place to camp immediately. This is real and happening, according to a source close to the events unfolding in Bethel. Fans who arrive on 5/26 will not be allowed to camp at Yasgur’s Farm unless some deal is reached between the owners and the Town of Bethel, but that is far from likely. There are better odds of Phish playing a Disco Biscuits song acapella than a deal being struck.

If you had a reservation at Yasgur’s Farm and paid through Paypal, request a refund from jeryla at cox.net. If you do not receive a refund, file a dispute with Paypal to expedite the return of money. One refund has already been processed so at least there is hope others will.

Adam Davidoff Bethel Woods(tock) Coins

From Adam Davidoff and Phish Coins comes the first (and only) Bethel Woods(tock) Coin:

For one side of the Bethel Woods(tock) Coin I designed a tribute to the original Woodstock logo with the acoustic guitar and dove, but worked in a Phishy spin. Instead of an acoustic guitar, I depicted as accurately as possible the new “Ocedoc” guitar currently being used by Trey. Instead of a dove, I placed the Famous Mockingbird on the neck of the guitar.

As a spin-off from the original phrase “An Aquarian Exposition in White Lake, NY” I changed it to read “A Piscean Exposition in Bethel, NY” and did so for two reasons. First, we are not actually at the dawning of the Age of Aquarius as some seemed to think in the mid 1960s, we are still in the Age of Pisces. I am not an astrology kind of guy… there is actually a scientific element to this. Secondly, the symbol for Pisces is a fish, so I couldn’t resist the double entendre. Instead of using the original “2 Days of Peace and Music” phrase, I changed it to read “3 More Days of Peace & Music” since that is exactly what will go down this upcoming Memorial Day Weekend!

As for the flip side of the Bethel Woods(tock) Coin, I created a scene that blends Memorial Day history with a dose of Gamehendge imagery and symbolism. The Rhombus in the center of the design is a tribute to the Tony Smith’s “New Piece” sculpture which can be found “somewhere” in New Jersey, in Trey’s old stomping grounds. The Rhombus serves as a tribute to the ultimate Memorial Day symbol in my eyes, The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. I am calling this Rhombus “The Tomb of the Unknown Lizard” and the scene portrays a lizard rejoicing in the overthrow of King Wilson, as symbolized by the memorial wreath of poppies featuring the historic Crest of Prussia in the middle. The poppy flower has been tied to Memorial Day since the early 1900s when women used to sell them to raise money for decorating the tombs of fallen soldiers on Memorial Day. This holiday in fact was originally called “Decorating Day” for this reason.

The Rhombus was a sacred site at which the Lizards would pray to Icculus. The sky above has the clouds parting with the sun between, representing The Divided Sky, and the two “Gateways to Gamehendge” are represented by the Nitrous Oxide tank with the word “Kung” written on it. The Helping Friendly Book lies on the ground, having been retrieved by the Famous Mockingbird, and the tree to the right of the Rhombus is a Weeping Fikus, commonly known as the “Tree of Knowledge” which is mentioned in Colonel Forbin’s Ascent.

I hope you like the design, as it is littered with Phish symbolism! As all Phish Coins are, the Bethel Woods(tock) Coin is antique silver in color, 1.75″ in diameter, has a reeded edge (like a quarter) and is sequentially numbered from 1-300.

 

The cost for each coins with shipping are 1=$24, 2=$45, 3=$66, 4=$87, 5=$108
Poker Chip prices w/ shipping are: 1=$13, 2=$24, 3=$35, 4=$46, 5=$57
