George Thorogood Concert to Continue as Planned at Treasure Lake

DUBOIS – It was never brought up, but George Thorogood and the Destroyers might have asked the Sandy Township supervisors “Who Do You Love?” had they been at last night’s meeting.

A 3-0 vote overrode a requirement that applications for outdoor amusements be submitted 60 days prior to the event, and with that, the supervisors decided to allow the band to play at Treasure Lake this weekend. Supervisor Mark Sullivan was absent from the meeting. Supervisor Jim Jeffers abstained from the vote because he is employed by the Treasure Lake Property Owners Association, which receives a portion of proceeds from the ticket sales.

The township has an ordinance stating that, among other things, an application for outdoor amusement must be submitted 60 days in advance.

The application was submitted Aug. 1 by Treasure Lake Ski Lodge Lessee George Moore. All other regulations, as listed in the outdoor amusements ordinance, were followed.

However, because of the vote, the band won’t have to “Move It On Over.”

The supervisors noted that they would not entertain another late application from the lodge, as the 60-day prior application is now known.

Thorogood, who has been playing for more than 30 years, is known for such hits as “Bad to the Bone” and “One Burbon, One Scotch and One Beer.”

Tickets for the lodge event are limited to 2,000.
