FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) -- It's only the second day of the Bikes, Blues & BBQ rally and bikes can be heard rumbling not just on Dickson Street, but all across Northwest Arkansas. But, the rally isn't just for men. Plenty of women are hopping on their motorcycles to enjoy the fun. Stacie York is the ultimate biker babe with two motorcycles, and she said she's been riding for almost a decade. "My brother passed away and he had four motorcycles and my sister-in-law had extras," she said.
FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) -- With a huge influx of people coming to Northwest Arkansas for the Bikes, Blues & BBQ, more than 300,000 people are in need of a place to stay. Staying at a hotel close to the main venue is most people's first option, and the Chancellor Hotel said they have a lot of repeat customers stay with them year after year. "Slowly but surely there are a few more motorcycles in the parking lot this morning than there were yesterday," Katherine Kinnley said.
FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) -- Motorcycles are making their way to Northwest Arkansas for the 18th Annual Bikes, Blues & BBQ rally. But, as the crowds move in some locals are moving out. The big rally officially kicks off Wednesday (Sept. 20), and that means Fayetteville is about to get a lot louder. Police say there is a noise ordinance, and they gave out six citations last year from motorcycles revving their engines, forcing some business to shut down during the rally.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
