TheCall FAIL: They Planned for 30,000, but only 6,000 Showed

"There were several blocks of barricaded but empty streets, pallet after pallet of bottled water that was apparently not needed, and unused JumboTrons and portable bathrooms. According to Kelley's research at United Site Services, a crowd of 30,000 was apparently expected. Kelley reports that perhaps 6,000 actually gathered at the capital mall for The Call.  As the Courage Campaign noted, some reports had Engle anticipating a crowd of 50,000. Big screen projectors were erected around the mall, with only a handful of people watching."  Source
