Hey BuzzHeads! Your humble community journalist has an opportunity to attend the presidential inauguration and bring you back live coverage from the event plus lots of photos and video.
A limited number of tickets to the inuaguration were given out in a lottery style drawing and I unexpectedley won without having prepared myself financially for the trip. This seems to be a once in a lifetime opportunity and being a local media guy I'm always looking for a story to cover for my audience.
The biggest cost of this trip will be the airline flight and travel expenses once in Washington D.C. One time Enid residents have offered to put me and an assitant up during my stay eliminating a large hotel expense.
The inauguration is Friday, January 20, 2017 but I have to be in Washington D.C. by Thursday, January 19, 2017 to pick up my tickets at Sen. Lankford's office. I need to book airline tickets as soon as possible to figure out how many days it will take me to get there and back.
I would love to take this opportunity to bring local coverage to such a grand event. Enid Buzz could be one of the only local small market media companies to actually attend the inauguration.
If at all possible I will try to bring back a souvenir for all that contribute. My goal is to make the trip no matter what but I would greatly appreciate any assistance just to assure it is financially feasible.
