PD4501-771 "All 43 seats.....still a bus !"

« on: March 12, 2014, 08:28:13 AM »

Hello all

I was recently contacted by the fine folks down in Blytheville, Arkansas requesting I organize another rally in town for 2015. Blytheville is located one hour north of Memphis, TN. For those that did not attend in 2013: We had 63 antique (a few modern) coaches (all brands) participate. The action centered around the town's amazing restored 1930s Greyhound depot. (downtown streets were closed off for bus parking) dry camping was the order of the day. I believe this event was a real source of pride for the town, and their hospitality was top-notch. So here it is: How many would be interested in attending another antique bus rally in Blytheville? I would guess sometime early-mid spring 2015 (before it gets too hot!)

I intend to accept the town's offer of them taking over more of the admin of the event, to lessen my time commitment. (registrations, meal planning, etc.)

I believe the new, boyhood home museum of Johnny Cash will be open by then. That is located in Dyess, AR., just 1/2 hour away from Blytheville. That may be a possible quick roadtrip we could make. 

Ideas? thoughts? comments? Parade/ no parade? Please provide feedback to see if there is enough interest to move forward with planning.

Thanks

Hi Tom,

Count me in!  Hope we can have the same parking spot as last year so I don't get lost.

Hey Tom, we had a great time last year.  Met a lot of people, made new friends and we would love to go again.  Depending on the date maybe we can bring our bus this time.  Don
