According to the countdown clock on the Team Shelby homepage, something will begin at 10:00 pm EDT tomorrow. Is that the webcast or the memorial? Based on the other information it appears to be the memorial but I would think you'd want people to tune at at the beginning of the webcast.

Agreed, that clock is the countdown to the live webcast of the memorial. However the webcast will start an hour before that I believe. The countdown clock I believe was going to be to the actual time of the "Rev Your Shelby" tribute, which would mean that the countdown clock should be set 5 minutes faster to the 6:55 pm PDT time. Or I guess the Rev your Shelby will be at the 5:00 minute mark.

Does a person have to be a member to get to the web cast or can anyone get on line to watch?
