The morning started off better with no fights and we got an earlier start. We went straight to John Schneider's autograph line except for my parents. After 1 & 1/2 hours, our group of 5 kept dwindling, Emily started crying & Kenny left with her, Danielle followed shortly, then Lydia. It was just me & my camera left to meet John (Bo Duke) Schneider. So I waited another hour and I got to meet John and what a nice man he was! He thanked me for coming out and said it was nice to meet me. Well it was MY pleasure, John! he he! He looks as good now as he did on the show! Maybe even better. :) Well, my Dukefest was made. I didn't care after that.
We watched the events at the motorplex which included a wrestling match with about 10 people in the ring (so fake!) and a band that did a Waylon Jennings tribute.
We left early the next morning so the rental van would be back in time. The kids held up pretty well, better than the adults. To be honest, I liked Dukefest but not as much as the CMA festival. I think to really enjoy it, you should be a die-hard Duke fan. My brother states he is going again next year. The verdict is still out for me.
