Nice work Brett & Scott Cranmer with the info they gave the reporter. I have seen newspaper stories in the past where the reporters totally mess things up and paint the wrong picture, but it appears this guy really listened to you and got the right idea.
Lets get this guy to keep coming out!!September 7, 2006 at 2:07 pm #34314felt20Member

Mr. Bill Gillis is responsible for getting the Press out there…Next time you are at concsessions at CJ…You know who to thank!September 7, 2006 at 8:06 pm #34366
I just re-read the article and I wanted to really thank Bill and Phil..(hey that rhymes)and point out what they did to get us this recognition.
Bill basically emailed every single paper in the area from the freebies to the Press and was able to wrangle them into coming out. Then Phil was there all day long jumping on me like I’m a 30′ set of triples, saying dude, did you talk to the reporter yet? Ya gotta talk to him, come on man…yo, whats up did you talk to him? Finally he basically grabbed me and shoved me in front of the guy (I was busy doing 20 things as usual…) and we got down to the business of words, lol.
I’d also like to thank John Bush himself who went and did an excellent job of reporting on BMX racing the way we want it to be seen.
We will not be stopped.September 8, 2006 at 2:55 am #34402
Sorry Bill…but I outted ya..
The cauldron of good people involved in NJ BMX is bigger than anyone realizes…..September 8, 2006 at 12:54 pm #34416
