Gary Job Corps Security Cadets at “Go Wheels Up!” Texas

Go Wheels Up! grew out of Cory Morrow’s dream of combining his passion for cars, aviation, and Texas cuisine with his lifelong pursuit of music into one giant ‘hullaballoo’.

Shooting for the stratosphere, he assembled an incredible team of expert event producers, celebrities, and business minds to create a multi-faceted festival that will be an unforgettable experience for the whole family!  Forty-five Gary Job Corps’ security cadets assisted with traffic and crowd control over the three day event held at the San Marcos Regional Airport.

Clayton Corn, Event Coordinator stated that he was very impressed by the professionalism that was shown by the security cadets and as activities are arranged in the future, the cadets from the Gary Job Corps Center will be the go to group to help handle the crowd and traffic control. He was quoted in saying “The group from Gary Job Corp came through big time for us.

They added an invaluable aspect to the event not only with security, but with just their presence in the field.” The visitors to Go Wheels Up! were entertained by: Bret Michaels, Los Texmaniacs, Kevin Fowler, Red Bull Air Force, B-17 Texas Raiders, Rodney Foster, Dale Watson, Cory Morrow, Gospel Brunch with Josh Weathers, an Auto Show, P-51 Gunfighter, and food vendors.

    What do you mean “future events”? That was a sadistic torture session for residents at least 2 miles out from the airport–the entire time the event was open for 3 days. Is city revenue really so important they’re willing to drive people from their homes for events?

      Yes, the City Managers responded that the noise was not above 85dB, but I can tell you that my house, 2 miles away, was vibrating from the heavy amplified Bass from the concert. This is horrible for people to have to endure (and for 3 days, too!), and even people who think they are not bothered by those heavy bass sounds, believe me, you are being affected, too. Even the CDC has studies on the effects of low frequency vibrations, including migraines, headaches, irritability, nausea, elevated blood pressure, rapid heartbeat, etc. The talented musicians should allow their music to be enjoyed without the amplified bass sounds! That would be more considerate of the residents in the area – yes, those 2 miles away! And they are planning future events [obviously, the city revenue is more important than the well-being of the San Marcos residents]. Please, please, please -down the bass effect!!!!!!!!! There was a water bottle in my kitchen that had ripple vibrations from the low frequency vibrations that originated 2 miles away!

        Ms. Coffey,

        We have it on good authority that a lawnmower has a higher noise level then 85d.

        Thank you for reading!

          Have you ever stood next to a lawnmower for 4 hours straight? Or 12 hours? It is unpleasant and not intended as long-term exposure. And lawn mower engines are mostly within normal human hearing range, unlike those concerts which were heavy on damaging low-frequency vibrations. Do research a little deeper than Google and you’ll find that the further a noise is from human hearing on the spectrum (either low or high), the more damage it causes to human physiology. See how anyone living hear the airport on SH21 feels about those “mere 85 dB.”
