    Question is:
    "What can the fairgrounds handle?"
    Camping, showers, toilets, food.
    Sure hope they've convinced the locals just how much we will eat/drink(if it's tasty).

    I think that the percentage of on line vs walk in has been increasing but I don't have the data.

    I'd love to see a new record, then another new one next time it is east. Population density is the trick.

    I think I heard that pre registration tends to represent about 30% of attendance. I would guess that population density would effect that number. I believe the latest registration numbers are close to 3,000.
    Online registration discount ends on June 30th...I would guess there will be a steady increase in registrations for the next week, as people like myself start thinking about travel plans.

    Somebody knows:)

    Somebody's watching the "ticker" on this, I'm sure! Keep'in it to himself/herself, top secret. Rob is rather conservative and probably close to right. I stick with my 9552 coming. Randy

    Latest number as of Friday...3200+ and very busy with two days pre registration to go...I started with the number of 10K and I am sticking with it...My guess is between 10K & 11K......and that will set the record....

    Thanks ol' buddy:)

    Very good. I thought it would actually be higher, but its what it is! 2 days left, end of June is the cutoff. I'm mounting tires today, getting ready to cross the USA. Later, Randy

    Almost everyone I know that is going is unemployed...............me included! This is why I think it will be heavily attended. It's amazing. I've never personally known so many folks without jobs!

    And BTW, if you go by a Home Depot and fill out an employment application, you can write the entire trip off on your income tax as a job search........But don't trust me on this, I'm not an accountant..............But I read this somewhere.

    Oh, BTW, I think there will be 9643.5 folks in attendance........

    I agree....for once in 36 years in the same field (and 8 years as a motorcyclist) I have no reason to rush home to preserve "vacation days" at work! This could be my best rally yet!! ('til the mastercard bill arrives....LOL).

    So, carpe diem everyone! See you in JC!!

    At least more than 20. I am not buying hot dogs for everybody any more.
    19 BMWMOA Nationals under my belt, and I have no idea what I am doing.
