I just spoke with Permits & Reservations -- they said the group organizing the summer of love festival still has not gotten in its deposit and she gives them about a 10% chance of doing so. even if they do manage to pull it off, she estimates it will be about the same size as the alice festival which took place this past weekend i.e. about 5-10,000 people. the only other weekend available to us on the norcal calendar is the preceding week (aug. 11-12) and elk glen (where we normally have tournament central) is booked for the 11th. So, to make a short story long, we're going to stick with the original dates (i.e. Aug. 18th&19th).
