Title: Pacific Northwest Promotions
Post by: George Hacker on December 07, 2011, 02:03:03 PM
Montana instructors, IITs, and Applecore,

I am currently working on coordinating promotional events for Project Appleseed in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana.  Let me give you a glimpse of some of the things I have in the works.

Introductory e-mails have been sent to homeschool conventions in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.  The Idaho convention has responded and there may be an opportunity to give a presentation to a workshop or to the whole convention.  We also may be able to put together a display table in their exhibition hall.  Negotiations continue with respect to that event.  The Oregon and Washington events haven't responded yet but I will continue to follow up.

Please pencil these events in your calendars:

These dates are strategic because they are just weeks before the 4th of July (in 3 of the top 4 populated areas in the Pacific Northwest).  I attended my first Appleseed last summer on the July 4th weekend because that holiday was meaningful to me.  Sadly, most Americans don't have a clue about April 19th so let's use the 4th of July to help teach them.

So what can you do to help?  :sos:

I hope each of us will volunteer for 1 or 2 promotional events this year.  I'm sure our efforts will wake up some sleeping Americans and translate to new shooters on the line, some of whom will take orange hats, then red hats...

Let's take Appleseed promotions in the Pacific Northwest to the next level in 2012.
