Great pics BigJim! I agree, gotta see porta-potty pics too! The tents were aligned so nicely, it looked very orderly there.

I'll bet there was more of a rush on Wal-Mart to get all of those red tents than there was when BB opened the doors!

The story about the tents............I got my tent 3 weeks ago from Wal Mart becuase I knew I was going to be out there for almost 2 days. The first person who was not with my group showed up about an hour after I did. She came with her sleeping bag but no tent. I told her to go to Wal Mart which was a mile away and get the $25 tent. When she did I helped her set it up. As more people were coming I told them to buy tents. When they got tents I helped each one of them set it up. Even though I was the first in line and could not care but I wanted to be friendly and help people in line. Here is my motto......We are friends until 3am Friday. After that it is every man for himself.

Really? What kind of discount did you get, if you don't mind my asking? Also, do all BB's do that?
TIA

I didn't get anything but a bunch of laughs and a blue balloon! On second thought, I was able to get them to take $20 off of my bill in lieu of gift cards, as well as getting them to honor the Gamestop advertisement, since the ad runs through the second of December. I set up Wednesday night because i live over twenty miles away, and we were in town for the movie, "Enchanted". It was a late show, so i decided to make it a night since the truck was already packed.

I cant say how much becuase the manager did this on his own but I will say it was worth it.

in the past we've tried to offer sweatshirts for sale but there was never enough demand to justify the costs. we will usually have a t-shirt available, please check the "discuss gottadeal" forum.

Wow, that was really nice of you but did you HAVE to send them to WalMart? LOL, Just kidding...great pictures, I feel like I know you now. Are you from Kentucky? I live about an hour north of Evansville, IN :D Just wondering...
