Calling All Cars Show Casts a Wide (Inter) Net

It was a spectacular day especially for an often off-and-on rainy one. We all dodged raindrops here and there but by and large folks hung in there and there was a great spirit about the show which must still have attracted a few hundred folks.

In addition to all the good the event did for the Portland Police Department’s Police Activities League with the couple thousands of dollars raised (thank you sponsors*, supporters, entrants and everyone that attended and helped to make this great success even for a rainyish day) as well as the show being a great send-off to our beloved Police Chief James Craig who inspired this hopefully annual event, one of the lasting legacies of the show is the intriguing places that mention of it showed up around the internet.

*Calling All Cars and Trucks and Motorcycles was sponsored for 2011 by the Portland Police Department, Portland Motor Club, and MaineToday Media (Portland Press Herald and Maine Sunday Telegram)

From Bangor to Boston to Cincinnati to a carpet cleaning service in Portland Oregon, from Indiana to India to Australia, from Music.aol.com to SoccerNews.com the eco-conscientious TreeHugger.com, this story got out there… way out there! Here’s a partial list of some of the places this story found itself.
