Chass, In general I support improving handicapped access when it can  
be done in a reasonable compromise with the other issues involved. It  
does not, or should not, trump all other concerns.

1) Let's take this issue back to the other thread, where it belongs.

2) "upgrade the site with non-skid pathways"? You've got to be  
kidding. But alas, I suspect you aren't. Most of the roads and  
pathways there are  dirt and gravel. When it rains they are going to  
get muddy. While you could pave the place with asphalt, at a great  
expense in both initial outlay and maintenance, more important to me  
and I suspect others, would be a loss of atmosphere. If I want to go  
to a Ren Fair or Disney Land, I will go there instead of Gulf Wars.

I suspect there are ways to accommodate those with disabilities  
without going to such extremes. If indeed folks did bypass the lady  
that had the stuck wheelchair then we need to work on that. If she  
refused help or didn't ask for it, then that also needs to be worked  
on. It might not have been apparent to some that she was having any  
problems, especially if she was talking to someone else. Folks might  
have felt she was simply stopped and talking not realizing she was
