    I don't think 100k can offset the economic factors...but in 2 more years we can make a difference - VOTE!

    Last year it started on Wednesday. The first 6 events were over Wednesday-Thursday. This year is started on Tuesday. What are the numbers for the 6 events on this year's Wednesday-Thursday?

    I didn't post the thread to leap to conclusions. Let the events run there course and see what shakes out.

    For those that don't think it's the economy, note that NASCAR reported 180,000 for the Brickyard 400, down from 270,000 in 2008.

    Weather has to be a factor also. Last year it wasn't so hot, this year it is a scorcher. Real temps in the 100s then add the humidity. Most of the trapshooters I know have had some heart problems, stents, attacks, etc... Heat indexes of 115 to 120 aren't the best thing for em.

    Let's hope it cools down. I plan to at least shoot a day or two.

    Actually, Wed and Thurs day-to-day numbers are up this year, 4,265 to 4,113. Does anyone have a copy of last year's program saved? I'll input the actual participation per event #, and day-to-day (like Wed vs. Wed) and we'll track it.

    If you can't join 'em, beat 'em.

    Just curious but what you are comparing is event for event this year vs last year.

    Are any of you taking into consideration that last year many may have shot the first week and not the last week due to vacation time? You may also have had some that shot part of both weeks?

    This year because the Challenge is the last day and there are 4 handicaps in the second week most shooter will have to be there the second week to shoot in the Challenge if they can qualify.

    I remember them saying at the inaugural Brickyard 400(1994) that the event was "sold out for the next 7 years".

    A bit too early for me to make any conclusions.

    It is not a bit early for me to make any conclusions about participation. Nine out of nine events are down so far. PARTICIPATION IS DOWN.

    Hopefully it will pick up for the rest of the Grand which would be a good thing.
