We've received post marks from the 1st as far away as Beefy and Southern Ohio. We'll wait for the mail today, but I don't think we'll see any more. If you are at all concerned that you mailed from such a distance that I haven't received your Nov 1 post marked entry, please reply to this thread.
So far, it appears that every Nov 1 post mark will be attending and 1 or maybe 2 from the second. On average, 4-6 people cancel before the event each year.
We might have a complete list as soon as tomorrow!
