  2. My wife and I are going. Can't wait, I've been wanting to go for a couple of years but things always came up to stop us. Not this time, Good Lord willing and the Creek don't rise we are going.

    I got a quick question about this event. How big is it, my family and I are thinking about heading down but we're wondering if it's gonna be a huge event, or if it's more of a local thing. Any help is appreciated.

    Yes it is a big event. Runs for 3 days. The other real big event is the American Royal in Kansas City.

    Already been told the park is drying out. No where near the problems as Nashville. It's a go!
     
  12. From what I've seen everything is still on at Memphis, if not we'll just have to float in!!

    We're headed down from Toronto Thursday afternoon, think we need to get some hotel reservations or should a room be easy to find?
