Tom, thanks for posting this on our forum. (I had to change the title slightly to get the full date listed).

It is appropriate that you posted here, as Eagles were well represented at the first Blytheville rally. Indeed your video has some good shots of some of the Eagles/Eagle Folks.

For those of you that were not at the first rally in Blytheville, you missed one of the best bus rallies that has been held. The number of "antique" buses that showed up was amazing. One of the highlight was when the group boarded 3 seated '50s buses and drove to Graceland (can you imagine what "normal" visitors thought when they saw us arrive). The parade of the buses was fabulous! It was well documented on several YouTube videos. Here is one:

Here is the 11x17 poster file link. It is a large TIFF file, so you will not be able to view it in Google drive. Just download from Google drive, and print. Please feel free to post or distribute posters wherever bus enthusiast congregate. Soon I will be posting an 8.5x11 flyer version with more event details.

Tom,
Mailed my check today.

Eagle members,
Any other Eagle members attending?
This was a very nice event a few year back, dust off your Eagle bus and meet us in Blytheville.

Hello

I have 4 Eagles registered (including yours!)

Important Blytheville parking info. Please read thoroughly! Thanks

Blytheville Antique Bus Homecoming Parking info: The event will officially start Friday morning Sept 27.
When you arrive in town (you can arrive as early as you like) please head toward our temporary coach staging area lots at: 2900 S. Division st. (U.S. 61) Blytheville, AR 72315 (GPS coordinates: lat: 35.895656 Long: -89.918151) Exit# 63 off I-55, (there are two exits for Blytheville, the one you want is the south exit off I-55) then travel north on highway 61 (Division st.) about .4 miles to former auto dealer lots on East side of road. There are three former car dealer lots at this address, we can use all three to park coaches. The city was granted permission by land owners. For early arrivals, overnight dry camping will be allowed in these lots. These lots should be large enough to temporarily hold all the coaches, until the city can get the necessary streets closed downtown and get folks parked near the Greyhound depot. We will be distributing maps/directions from the temp. staging lots to show parking areas downtown near the former Greyhound depot. (These lots are only about 2.9 miles from the former Greyhound depot)We plan to begin parking coaches downtown on Thursday (Sept 26). Please do not attempt to park downtown before my parking crew has assisted you from the temporary staging lots. We must be respectful of downtown local merchants, and not block their customer access/parking. The city has worked very hard to make this event great for all involved, so I ask for your patience and cooperation. The city is closing several streets downtown for the duration of the three day event to provide coach parking near the former Greyhound depot. All registered coaches will be parked downtown first, then any non-registered "drop-ins" will be parked. If anyone wants to park near their buddy in the show areas, just let the parking crew know that, and we will make every attempt to accommodate you. All members that wish to park together, must be present in the staging lot to get parked with friends. Once folks get parked downtown, it will be difficult to juggle coaches around. We most likely can not hold spots for future arrivals. If you have toads, trailers, dollies, extra cars, etc. if you choose, you can leave those items in these lots for the duration of the event (or keep hitched). The city will have passenger car parking areas near the depot for local show attendees. If you have not registered as yet, please do so soon. I need head-counts for caterer and T-shirt orders, etc. Thanks! registration form link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=10Tb1-pVa1esbZpKJpV_mw_C2BLIU7ewY
