Confirmed victory

The Treasure Island drum circle is an unorganized weekly gathering on the beach of drummers dancers, hula hoopers, families, spectators and onlookers of all ages from Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando counties and beyond with It's purpose to share improvises rhythms, share self expression and have a good time.Over the years and recently the drum circle has been blamed for various acts that happened outside the drum circle and some during , regardless that has nothing to do with drummers that come out and should not lead to having permits since this is an unorganized group that varies from week to week. The drum circle has become so big it is now is a big tourist attraction and the city has has to step in enforce codes and ordinances which have been appreciated and obeyed for years. But it seems now city.Commissioner like Irving Butch Ellsworth and  others are trying to once again threaten the circle with new limits such as permits. We hope to keep the circle open with reasonable guidelines and want to work with the city at keeping up a very safe and clean circle. If you agree to keep the Treasure Island Drum circle going un until sunset without permits  please sign the petition!
ALSO aug 76pm THERE WILL BE A CITY  MEETING ABOUT THIS IF YOU CAN MAKE IT THAT WOULD BE GREAT TOO!

Please allow the Treasure Island drum circle to continue through sunset and without permits

The Treasure Island drum circle is an unorganized weekly gathering of peaceful drummers dancers, hula hoopers, families, vacationing spectators and onlookers of all ages from Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando counties and beyond the beach.It's purpose to share improvised rhythms, share self expression and have a good time. Over the years and recently the drum circle has been blamed for various acts that happened outside the drum circle and some during . Regardless that has nothing to do with drummers that come out and should not lead to having permits since this is an unorganized group that varies from week to week.
The drum circle has become so big it is now is a big tourist attraction and the city has has to step in enforce codes and ordinances which have been obeyed for years. But it seems now city.Commission Butch Ellsworth are trying to once again threaten the circle with new limits such as permits as motive to close down the circle He deems the circle unsafe, although the instances of fighting were not at all at the circle but in the parking lot where the police should always be stationed regardless of a circle or not. in the past there use to be stationed police officer there but for some reason they have been taken away..

The circle has generated so many returns to Treasure island the surrounding hotels and helped business to thrive on otherwise slow Sunday


We hope to keep the circle open with reasonable guidelines ( drum til sunset not 7pm )and want to work with the city at keeping up a very safe and clean circle.
