    Sept. 10th is the deadline for making the goal!

    The people that bought tickets probably know this but for the people that haven't or don't know their schedule yet I thought it would be worth mentioning.

    Good luck getting your event to tip.... 100 is a lot more then u might think.. we had three events here in Seattle try, and none of them made it.. mine was only forty and didn't quite make half.. thought for sure in a city of two million I could find forty that wanted to see the flick

    I'm waiting for the DVD.. that and the New On Any Sunday film

    Can't believe there aren't more folks in this town that want to see this movie. If it was the Chikuhei Nakajima (founder of Subaru) movie, they'd need the Old Mill 16 to hold all the people!

    whoever is hosting, here are a few suggestions

    • everyone that is intending on going, send an email to ten friends.. even if they are not motorcyclists.. some will come just for the entertainment value
    • post an announcement on local craigslists
    • contact local newspaper.. most are willing to place something for free in local events section etc.
    • same thing with local radio shows
    • contact area motorcycle dealers, racing clubs, riding clubs etc.

    This is starting to seem doable!

    I think the craigslist add might get us there. Niggles?

    I can handle that with permission so I don't step on any toes.
