    If this article is any indication that there might be media presence then this will be a good thing.

    There are the usual uninformed people in the comment section trotting out the old tired anti-OC arguments.

    Check with Rick Ector on facebook. Why would Big Boy flake out? They have received a ton of free publicity the last few days and more is to come next week at the actual event.

    We have held a number of OC meets at Big Boy and they have always been gracious and happy for the business.
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    If that is true find a new location and move on.

    Hmmm...

    I thought the articles were more neutral than most things from the media.

    Was he afraid people would stop coming to his restaurant? Well, he got his wish...
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.
