    I really was expecting a big turnout to this. The turnout was dissappointing to me. I would estimate at the peak maybe 800. We should have had 10,000. I pestered everyone I know to go and got five to attend with me. It was their first political gathering and my fourth and even though I felt the turnout was low we enjoyed it. We arrived at 12:30 and left at 4:30. I have been to several of these now and it is difficult to stand in the sun all day and stay interested. I would have liked to have seen more energy. It would have helped if there had been some known speakers to kick it off. I noticed at about 2:30 a group of about 10 arrived and they were yelling and chanting at the tops of their lungs. They marched single file through the crowd chanting loudly and got the entire crowd really fired up. We need more organized cheerleaders in the crowds to get them fired up like that and keep the energy high during the event.
