From Cape Fear Beer Fest

Very uncool Ramone.

It's late, but I got a call about this article so I figured since you have an opinion, I may as well chime in.

I am the controller of the company that was holding the Cape Fear Beer Fest on June 18 at the Wilmington Convention Center. The reason I didn't answer your calls today is because I had a meeting with the convention center at 3:30 today to work out the kinks, and find a resolution. It would be wrong to answer questions to you and your TV station prior to meeting with them. I did however, contrary to your articles' depiction send you a written statement before your deadline that explained in detail that we had moved forward and had settled on a new date in September.

While some of what was stated in your article is true, it is also inflammatory and short-sighted. The Wilmington Convention Center did not set out to hurt my company. I am a supporter of downtown and the Convention center. Yes, it's inconvenient to postpone our first event but, a delay weighed against many successes in the future is a win for Wilmington, the Convention Center and my comppany.

Question? Why does a reporter call me 3 times in one day want to talk about an event at the convention center that has been postponed, rather than call me just once to find out about the actual event?
