  I also remember one near tragedy...on the slide. if u remember...there was a TREE, yes a tree, right at the end of the slide. there was a pregnant woman that somehow got to "ride" down. i did not know she was pregnanct and don't know if the guy up top knew. well, i missed her! (groan) i have no idea how...but i was she missed the tree, god only knows. i remember that day and it still chills me. i often wonder what became of mother and child. Chuck Ferrara
