NPR is calling me tomorrow morning

Anyone know how many trailers will be at Bozeman? I don't want to misspeak.

Michael,

The count will not be known until the end of the Rally. There are many attendees who register at the Rally. If you have time, you might call WBCCI headquarters in Jackson Center and see if they will tell you how many are preregistered. I believe that there were about 1100 at Salem and about 1100 at Perry.

I've heard attendance is below 1000 this year...somewhere around 925-950 are expected. Unfortunately, there have been a lot of recent cancellations due to gas prices.

I think NPR should be told of the cancellations as soon as possible. That's the type of story NPR does well with.

I can not count the number of times National Public Radio has caught me off-guard with a true story such as this.

I'll just go with "1,000" and be vague. If they want to talk to me more, I can dial in the actual numbers when we get more details.

Preregistrations

I just heard a report that there are about 840 preregistered for the International.

Bill, thanks for the number. I'm curious to see how many cancellations there are, and the final tally.

NPR will be calling me on Friday or Saturday, to record my observations. I'm getting anxious to get on the road. This is going to be fun.

Cheers!

-Michael

bevman on NPR from Bozeman



Liane Hansen on NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday Morning just did a cool interview with bevman from Bozeman. It is located almost 50 minutes into one of the two hours (2nd hour here in CDT zone). It's shortly after the NY Times Will Shortz puzzle segment. It should be available for online listening later this morning - Weekend Edition Sunday : NPR (does that require Real Player? ).

BTW, the weather has got to be quite mild for International this year. Thanks Wally!

NPR Sunday

Just listened to the story on NPR interviewing Bevman. he did a great job and all should check out the prior link and give it a listen.

He even had Liane Hansen giggling about the sea of shiny aluminum blinding the local onlookers.

Thanks Bevman!

NPR Link

I just heard your interview on NPR, it was a nice interview. Makes me wish I joined WBCCI and went to the rally. Next year!
Here is the link:
Summer Fun with a 1958 Airstream Trailer : NPR

PS- Just curious, out of all the AS folks, how did you get picked? Was it the 58 Flying Cloud?
