Reality?

December 22nd, 2009 by contributor

zigs-tryouts-3-girlsLooks like just about everyone in Forks showed up for the casting call for the planned Forks reality TV show. (We’re up in Canada, so we missed all of the action!) Check out the coverage at the Forks Forum site and in today’s Peninsula Daily News. We’re assuming they’re not talking about the “real” Forks that we know, so we’re curious what, exactly, is planned. Anyone have suggestions for Zig Gauthier, the Santa Monica, California, based television producer behind the project?

Fans Flood Forks

with-love-fnlOur high winds, drenching rains and seasonal darkness only appear to encourage the hardcore fans that continue to flock to Forks, LaPush and the West End. They’re not called Twihards for nothing! This article, written by Tom Callis, from today’s Peninsula Daily News, does a fine job of hitting the local highlights from the weekend. It even quotes Mike Gurling, our Visitor Center Manager, who shares, among other things, the fact that our website, forkswa.com, received 54,841 “hits” on Friday alone. Wow! All in all, it sounds like there was quite an array of activities to keep people interested over the weekend. Okay, we’ve got to admit we’re a little unclear on the relationship between belly dancing and Twilight, but, in any case, it sounds like everyone had a blast on this blustery New Moon movie release weekend!
