Daily activities and specific 66 tourist stops are still down the list from what we are working on now. Only at a draft high level view.
But, Monday Memorial Day presents several issues for us, not only for what you speak, but also relative to certain places possibly being closed!
Inquiries are being made as such to seek opportunities, as example, we wanted to stop in Adrian TX at the Midpointe cafe, and looking to see if they could open for us for an hour or so. Given uncertainties, that day is currently an open book, other than one specific highlight we are planning.
But, the other issue is that in a week run, every day will be extensive, long days, and only offering limited time per any given stop to manage to 10-12 hr days.
Will we as organizers offer some attribute of observance and respect? Certainly.
Can we spend significant time focused on Memorial Day, or, observing at some location for a significant time? Realistically, no.
But can we spend SOME time paying our respects at some celebration? Possibly!
A couple things do lend themselves to your concern/request...
We may be able to synch up our timing/path with some celebration
Secondly, we do not yet know the size of our event, may be minimal, it may grow to significant numbers. Bullitts will not be the only participants. As such, to manage logistics, we are anticipating having to plan for split schedules, and, split options to drive one group to one stop and the another group somewhere else. As such, one of the many schedule/stop options could be a specific stop for a Memorial observance.
Monday would be the Oklahoma to Tucumcari NM segment. We are currently planning an hour or two stop in Amarillo TX offering two main options late afternoon.
Maybe you could come up with a third option in Amarillo?? Or, in keeping with split schedules, maybe you may know of or could research some place enroute between OK and NM that could provide participants with an option? We are certainly open to suggestions! The evening event at our stopping point (Tucumcari) is another option for us relative to what we do that night. It really is just a matter of trying to fit multiple options into the schedule and fitting them into time and place.
But, please let us know if you have an suggestions...
