  1. Is anyone planning on attending this event? It looked like I could get to go but at the last second the grail was snatched from my hands. Luckily I hadn’t purchased my tickets yet.

  2. It was great. The people were great. Richie Knucklez is crazy cool, in a great way. People who had never met Billy Mitchell found out the truth, and not all the lies about his personality. Remember KOK only starts as a documentary but ends as a movie. All 11 competitors are pals, not enemies. I wish they had this every year!!!
