All of the above listed individuals and organizations have graciously sent letters of endorsement in favor of the creation of, or letters of support in favor of the funding of, The Cannonball Express. While most of these advocates are residents of Northern California, a few letters have come in from as far away as Montana and Australia.

When the pilot project is completed in the Fall of 2005, these stakeholders will receive a complementary copy of the video and an invitation to provide feedback. This will ensure that the deluxe versions of the video that we film in other counties around the Bay Area will be that much more accurate and enjoyable. We started distributing demo tapes to this select audience in February 2001 and by September 2001 this project was completed. We have added additional footage of native plants in response to their comments and criticisms.

This is not the only distribution list for the video but it should be the most influential. For the latest buzz on the video project please visit our Dream Book / Guest Book. Look for the link on the lower right side of our home page. Try scrolling down the home page a little if you can't find it.
