  1. Ride removal has started at the park.When I went by today they were removing the truck ride located near the tilt-a-whirl.They also had a bigger truck waiting outside.The last I heard from Robert was that they were waiting on a bankruptcy attorney for their next step.I hope this doesn't mean they found a buyer who just wants the land. I also hope that Michael and Robert still have a shot, to me they seem like the parks best chance for survival. I'll send more as soon as I find anything out.Chris

  6. Robert Barnards email to the Mayor: Mayor Brewer, Congratulations on becoming mayor. As owners of Joyland Michael and I left several messages for you before, during, and after the election. I understand you were busy and unable to return the calls at that time. I hope things have settled down for you. We are only asking the city to do the items they promised in writing. You may refer to the meeting minutes from the various meetings with Allen Bell, Jim Skelton, and then Mayor Mayans. Allen Mairs has volunteered to work with you on these items. I look forward to working with your administration and opening Joyland in the near future. Sincerely, Robert E. Barnard- COO Joyland Amusement Park Inc. 2801 South Hillside Wichita, KS 67216
  7. Not even worthy of a response .Other than IGNORE THE NAYSAYERS!

Here is the response I received from Mayor Carl Brewer and Jim Skelton: Mayor Carl Brewer: I would be happy to meet with them if they had requested a meeting with me the only person thats asking for help on this project is(Chris Cane).We/I want joyland open just as you do but the owners must have a workable plan,I'm willing to do all that I can within the law to help.But everyone must keep in mind the city has many projects that are city owned and and we must make those a priority first.Have the OWNERS call me at 268-4331. Jim Skelton: For anything to happen with Joyland the Owners or their agent must contact me.
  9. Another Vandalism at Joyland .Good job watching the park stan. Vandalism 2927 S. George Washington Blvd., Pinecreek Apartments, July 16. 2801 S. Hillside, Joyland Amusement Park, July 17.
  10. just started the petition this morning. Once it gets around a little the signatures will increase.I'll also be taking signatures at the protest.
  11. Please sign my online petition to support Joyland. this is a critical point and anything we can do to convince the city to work with Joyland will be instrumental in insuring the parks future. Thanks Chris http://www.petitiononline.com/7004/petition.html
  12. Heres an email I received from from Robert regarding Joyland.I hope things really get going now. ----- Original Message ----- From: Robert Barnard To: Jim Skelton Sent: Monday, July 09, 2007 9:41 PM Subject: Joyland- FYI Councilman Skelton, FYI I will call Allen Mairs and ask him to settle my ownership of Joyland with the Nelsons and discuss the operating license with the city of Wichita. I will give him until August 1, 2007 to resolve all of the issues. Without the support of the city council, the mayor, and the K15 association I will not be in Wichita to operate an amusement park. Your own city attorney has stated the legal battle with the Joyland owners and the Nelsons will take 3-5 years. I believe you saw the estimated cost to the city to fight a Joyland legal battle. I hope you and the city administration make the correct decision for the citizens of Wichita. I look forward to working with you in the near future. Sincerely, Robert Barnard
  13. They should have given it more of a shot than that. Just 2 mths!maybe the people they paid to do the studies were no good at what they do.
  14. I hope your right. but with the park closed immediately it sucks for those of us who purchased season passes. And I'm not sure someone would want to buy a failed park.
