REBECCA –
Memorial weekend, 1996 (–dash–) Memorial weekend, 1997!
First time we saw the rundown amphitheater in Fort Mill, SC (–dash–) First show opened on stage at King’s Arena.
You know what they say: "It’s all about the dash."

BIRDIE –
It was October before a lease was finalized, granting NarroWay use of the amphitheater property until December 31, 2005, with an option to extend the lease for two three-year periods.

With the help of our attorney and friend, Joe Justice, and his wife, Virginia, we began the insufferable procedure of securing a tax-exempt status from the IRS. Unbeknownst to us, our coming to the old Heritage USA property coincided with Jim Bakker’s release from prison. So, the IRS agent thought we were a front for a Jim Bakker come-back!

BIRDIE –
Little did we know that we would live in the ominous shadow of Jim Bakker for years to come.

REBECCA –
Without IRS certification, we couldn’t secure the contributions we desperately needed.
