I personally don't care about a caravan number after my name. But I also don't want to organize a caravan that suits my wants and needs until I've at least been on a caravan organized by someone more experienced. So if they want a number after their name…

Scratching the itch of curiosity, how many of those were volunteers?

Any one know how many of those 374 were off site?

I wouldn't be surprised if more than half were early workers

Just a thought. It would be interesting to see the attendance at the last 5-10 Nationals compared to the location. I remember the one in Wisconsin had over 900. Maybe a central location that is the same each year would be better. If it were to be held at the same place, maybe the rates would be less and there would be less set-up as this could be scheduled years in advance. Possible sites could be St Louis, Kansas City, Memphis or somewhere in between.
Like I said, just a thought

Still thinking; The Kansas City Speedway comes to mind as it is already set-up for camping on the infield.

Just to let everybody know, I have posted the audio files HERE to listen to. I will also be posting MP3 files as well if you have any trouble with the WMA files I have up now.

I believe there were about 225 on site just prior to the arrival of caravans and expect most of them had one or more jobs as volunteers. I was on handicap parking until June 28 and worked every second day, plus my International Membership tasks, helping a bit at the Club store and carrying the Canadian flag at several activities.

Its not about numbers John, its about making it easy and fun for the people who go! That has always been the driving force behind my caravans!

Well, Ed, since you mention it, I'm not sure the relaxation of requirements for numbered unit caravans will make any difference to us. A number of requirements in the WBCCI Caravan Handbook (which I can't seem to lay my hands on right now) are burdensome for free-wheeling caravans like hours, and the benefit isn't worth the cost.

For those of you who have never been on one of Ed's caravans, they're great! I would tell you some stories, but I can't, because caravanners are solemnly sworn to secrecy at the start of each caravan. Our motto is, "What happens on the caravan, stays on the caravan!"

Sounds like things were a little bit calmer this year. Were there any problems? Also, what were the high points, the good. Jim
