News at the Fairgrounds

The IT! Insider just met one of the crew from CNN who is parked on the fairgrounds for the upcoming press conference this afternoon. He was seeking some kind of travel souvenir from the fairgrounds. Wishing we had some kind of special trinket, I walked him over toward the direction of the fairground office past all of the other media trucks with their giant satellite dishes. He shared with me about the the different media here--locally, from the Bay Area, and nationally. I shared a little bit with him about who we were and that though we are in Placerville, we are not in Placer County. Earlier in the day, I glimpsed a reporter "on the field" submit her report for the midday news. Now if we could only get a little bit of publicity (the good kind, of course) for Imagination Theater, then people would know where to find us.

This is why it's a little bit busy here today. A press conference is scheduled today at 3:00 p.m.
