A futile, long wait for Simmons family

I attended Gene Simmons and family function on July 23 and was utterly disappointed and let down.

I attended Gene Simmons and family function on July 23 and was utterly disappointed and let down.

There was such a lack of security and organization that people just cut in line after coming off the street later in the day.

I along with my daughter and many others in the line waited five hours, some longer,  to get a picture with Gene and his family.

We got to witness them a half hour late and leave an hour early. The picture and greet was advertised from noon until 4 p.m..

After our long wait we got to the stairs of the casino near the picture stage and were told at 3 p.m. that there were no more pictures.

People that had been there in line for hours just wound up leaving early, which we should have done also.

We should have left with the pictures I took when they arrived and saved ourselves four hours or waiting. I don’t know who organized it or planned it, but someone please give them a watch and teach them crowd control and organization.
