One Day Before Foreclosure Sale, Tom Dimmick of Reggae Rising Files for Bankruptcy
Thursday, June 7, 2012

Southern Humboldt’s Dimmick Ranch was scheduled to be sold at a foreclosure auction on the courthouse steps this morning. But the sale was forestalled by the ranch’s owner, Tom Dimmick, co-general on one side of the great SoHum Reggae Wars, as he filed for bankruptcy in an Oregon federal court yesterday.

Dimmick’s bankruptcy petition can be found here. Curious: Though the bankruptcy covers Reggae Rising and Dimmick Ranch LLC, in addition to Dimmick as an individual, it estimates that there exist only between one and 49 creditors who are about to get stiffed. One of them is sure to be Redwood Capital Bank, which lent Dimmick $1 million back when he was trying to develop the ranch into a concert venue. But it would not seem to include the many people who bought advance tickets for Reggae Rising 2010, only to fight unsuccessfully for refunds when the festival was canceled.

Thats awesome DJ trees!! I keep all my ticket stubs too! my first year was 05!! LOL i wish i was around for the 80s to enjoy the great artists of that time! Just curious can you remember any headliners from those years??
Re: Reggae On The River Aug1-4 2013 French's Camp
September 28, 2012 03:00PM
The details are pretty hazy hehe. But the stub from 88 says Judy Mowatt, Burning Spear, Messenjah, David Lindley, Rankin Scroo & Ginger. And from memory 89 was Sugar Minott, Israel Vibration, Joe Higgs... that's all I got. I remember having a most excellent time on both occassions.

I did not manage to keep all the stubs, but I made an effort. A few others I have that are relevant: Reggae Sunsplash 89 - Greek Theatre, ROTR 90, Reggae Fest 91 - Greek Theatre, Shabba Ranks & KRS One 92 - Berkeley Community Theatre. There are so many more that I failed to save the stubs. My first concert was UB40 at UC Davis in 84 or 85.

Now that I think about it, Pato Banton was at the 89 ROTR as well and that is funny because I was a little punk then and since have opened for two of the acts at that show. Pato and Israel Vibration. To blessed to be stressed.

So glad to hear ROTR may be returning. Sometimes the soil from which things grow becomes contaminated, so it must be transplanted and the soil cleansed. Hopefully the true to heart reggae lovers will nourish and grow ROTR to what it once was or altleast towards more positive vibes. Nothing is ever perfect, but maybe a new beginning could revive an old friend (ROTR) If its coming back, so am I. Big Up Reggae Massive

I heard the same thing. I was looking at the permit and it looks like they are only allowing for 4,000 on site campers with 6000 total tickets being sold. Hopefully the smaller crowds can keep the vibez on point. Also, no crosswalk to get across the highway.
Re: Reggae On The River Aug1-4 2013 French's Camp
January 07, 2013 10:57AM
WOW, Only 4,000 camping passes and 6,000 total. That is smaller than I expected. Will be interesting to see what kind of lineup they come up with. Hopefully they pay the local law enforcement off.

I just decided to go one more time and got my favorite camping site reserved at Richardsons Grove State Camp Grounds. That would be campsite #161. Still lots of sites left in that area of the campgrounds but you must start your camping dates on July 31 or earlier to reserve now in January.
The remaining sites will go fast come Feb 1st.

My wife and I attended ROTR for eleven years in a row from 1991 when it first became more then a single day event. We stopped going when People Productions took over and the crowds got bigger and uglier. It will never be like the early 90's again but we decided to go one more time since the camping experience is great and Richardsons Grove is such a lovely place and a delight. If the vibe in Richardsons Grove is anything like it was before we will be happy campers, so we are gonna chance it.

Its about a 20 minute hike from the campgrounds to the venue.

If anyone else is interested in camping at Richardsons Grove and has any questions, ask away as I might be able to help.

Thanks for the reminder Rhythmwize.............We stayed there with a very large group from 99 thru 2006 for ROTR. By far my favorite camping experience at any music festival. The "Grove" is so special. I'm on it.....
Re: Reggae On The River Aug1-4 2013 French's Camp
January 10, 2013 11:07AM
Love Richardson Grove! Our buddies had the large teepee on the other side of the river and we stayed there often. Not going this year, but maybe next- one festival a summer is all we can do.
Re: Reggae On The River Aug1-4 2013 French's Camp
January 10, 2013 01:33PM
any idea if the trail from Richardson Grove to Frenchs camp/Cooks Valley will be cleared out by ROTR 2013? Last year was my first time attending in a few years and the trail had overgrown. My buddy and I attempted to take the trail late friday night at ROTR 2012 only to find out the trail was overgrown. Bless!!

The main road is the main trail. Rotr will install a bridge over the eel river from the main road to the old bowl. It is a very simple walk, maybe 10 min from the gas station to the concert stage.

Yeah, but some of us are not camping at the gas station, we are camping in the Oaks Flat section of Richardsons Grove, and that a really long hike if you have to go out to the 101 and South down the highway.

In prior years, the people running ROTR provided a back entrance into the bowl to accomadate the hundreds camping in Oaks Flat. Most of the trail to the bowl was a fire road leading out the back of the campgrounds...perhaps the trail down the hill from the fire road is the part that is currently overgrown.

The only other option to the 101 is too hike about 1/4 mile or more over huge river rocks and then wade the river if its low enuff...not something you want to do, especially at night.

Hot off the press:

The main 3-day festival will take place Friday through Sunday, August 2-4, and a limited number of early arrival tickets will allow access to the grounds and an extra evening of entertainment on Thursday, August 1.  A total of 6000 tickets will be made available to the public, with only 2500 of those being early arrival tickets, and they are expected to go fast due to heightened interest in this special celebration.  Tickets will be priced at $160 for the 3-day pass or $210 for the 4-day early arrival ticket. Please note that camping will available on site for an additional price of $40 for the weekend, which will be assessed upon arrival for those wishing to camp.

I think there was, or still is, a private campground behind the gas station that is called Richardson's Grove and it has many times caused confusion with the State Campground with the same name further North up the 101 about a 1/3 mile or so. No problem man, its not your fault<smile>

This is priced more than SNWM and California Roots festival! They better produce a lineup for these ticket prices. The camping info is really vague. Looks like a way to extort people at the gate who are coming to camp.

My hard earned dollars are going to SNWMF and California Roots Music & Arts Festival.

Totally different festival man... but you already knew that. Why are you being so cynical? Do you have a reason for not wanting ROTR to be successful? I get being pissed at Reggae Rising for screwing people by selling tickets for a show that didn't happen but ROTR never did that.

Happy Reggae!

@Rossta-- if you've never been to ROTR, you are making a big mistake by missing this festival. It is not to be missed, and I would put it at the top of my list. The concert/camping site is 2nd to none! (although I've never been to NWWRF)
Re: Reggae On The River Aug1-4 2013 French's Camp
January 15, 2013 03:47PM
I have been to ROTR before. My freinds that got me into reggae Walter and Saundra worked for people productions and for the last 2 years of reggae on the river i got to work the festival and enjoy it!!! I also went to Reggae rising. Coming from Oregon I can usually only afford to take time off for one CA festival because of the extra travel days. The 20th anniversary of SNWMF is the place for me this summer. Love ROTR and would love to support it but just cant do both. NWWRF is close to me, inexpensive as I already bought my ticket that includes camping for 80.00. The lineup is always nice IMO. This year was hard to buy my ticket knowing it wont be in Marcola but I am trusting that they will find a good venue. Plus I would rather spend the money and time off of work to drive to CA and see Midnite 4 times in 4 days then use my time off to go to a 2nd festival in CA this summer. Call me weird but I just love Midnite with a passion and would rather see them

January 15, 2013 05:13PM
My bad, I assumed you had never been to ROTR. I still think you're making a mistake not going, I would think ROTR would book an epic line-up for their return to their roots.
Re: Reggae On The River Aug1-4 2013 French's Camp
January 15, 2013 07:20PM
Yes u would hope for epicness but with snwmf having a 20 year anniv. I think the place to go would be snwmf.. I also can only afford one festival for the most part.. And if we don't make it to Jamaica this year we will make the festival for sure
Re: Reggae On The River Aug1-4 2013 French's Camp
January 16, 2013 07:55AM
Reggabe, you think that ROTR lineup will be epic?? I am unsure of that. THey are only selling 6,000 tickets. I guess I figured it would take them a few years to get some funds to have that epic lineup. I dont really know though just speculating. Dont get me wrong Reggabe, I would love to go to ROTR but NWWRF is the weekend right before and I can attend the festival for under $250 and hopefully they will have a great lineup as well this year.

THE PROBLEM WITH ZACH AND KEITH BOWMAN IS THAT THEY HAVE NOT OPENED THERE BOOKS TO SEE HOW MUCH MONEY THEY MADE OVER THE SAME 3-4 DAY PERIOD WHEN ROTR WAS AT BENBOW. ZACH WAS OFFERED A SPOT AT THE FESTIVAL . THE PROBLEM WAS THAT HE WANTED A MUCH LARGER SPACE AND HIS NEED TO HAVE TRUCKS IN AND OUT

They don't have to open their books up to anyone. They are not a non-profit whereas the Mateel is a non-profit and by law has to open their books up to anyone who requests to look at them. Get real and get reasonable. The man has a valid point and no amount of shuttling is going to remedy this situation. Do you really think we are all going to flock to the shuttle to take a two hour trip to just get across the street? Give the man his store. That's the irie thing to do Mateel.

Yeah, that was a poor decision on their part from a PR standpoint...as well as a matter of fairness.

First the three day tickets were $160, and now they are adding an additional $30 camping fee to each ticket whether or not you camp at the venue.

Raises an additional $180K in revenue but they should of thought of that before saying the tickets are priced at $160.

And in addition they are charging $40 for each car into the camping area.

Hey, capitalism and the free market operating at its finest.

Incidently, that reminds me of how some Caribbean event promoters operate. If the event is really popular and theres a big line and it looks like they will sell out and reach capacity, they start telling the people in line that the ticket price is going up and keep increasing the price with the last people allowed in paying something like double or more then the original ticket price...pretty clever, eh?

Charging 40 more for parking is such a garbage way to gouge people. Shame on carole Bruno and the manteel. Shame!!!!!

Not everyone has money to throw around renegade sound. That "then don't go" crap works on children but not full grown men!

Alright full grown man calm down, I really doubt 40 bucks is gonna break your bank. Yea I agree it's a chincy way of doing things but at least we get to go back French's. You know you're gonna go anyway, so chill out.
