Will anyone here be attending this other than me?

Official Site: http://www.boonevillemississippi.com

Here's the confirmation email they sent us (everything in bold applies to me or my friends):


Quote:
First I would like to say what a pleasure it will be to work with the
Booneville Area Chamber Of Commerce (BACC) on this years parade. It should
be exciting and better than ever with WOBN T.V.7 covering the whole event.
Now with that being said I would like to introduce myself to most of you. My
name is Wade Billiot and I will be gathering info from most of you to help
with the commentating.. I understand with the holidays coming upon us and to
request such at a short notice is asking a lot. For this I am sorry but just
think how it will be used and how it can be an asset to most of you. In the
following questions you will understand more of what we (BACC) are wanting.
Your response will be most helpful, along with to really showcase your
position in this years parade. So I will ask that you please fill out as
much as you can to help. Just think as you approach the camera, the
commentators will have info. about the way you are representing your place
in line. I will need this by Nov. 28. By doing this I will be working hard
all weekend to have it put together.

Thank you and Please have a safe and Wonderful "Happy Thanksgiving".

Wade Billiot
