Are press released planned for this year and just haven’t gone out yet, or is that idea nixed?

I’d recommend sending a press release to the AP’s office in Concord so, at the very least, it gets on their daybook — a daily listing of events of media interest. In addition, I’d recommend sending it to the bigger newspapers in New Hampshire– the Union Leader, Concord Monitor and the like — and The Boston Globe and The New York Times.

We may find as time goes on that this event gets less media attention. For example, I wouldn’t be surprised if this year, there is photographic media but no print. This is not to diminish the event, it is simply a reality that events that are no longer “new” will get less coverage. I, for one, don’t care about the media attention — to me, it’s more important to get in the mountains and memorialize those who died and those who are left behind.
