How shall we tag WI?

RIVIERA OF THE NORTH 8)

HOME OF THE WINTER APPLESEED TOUR

Suggestions................

Quick, before IL gives us a name we are going to have to live with. $$-0

in case you don't have access to the above link...
Some of you may not be aware of the ability to "add" a message to your state board's title.

    Take a look at the list of state boards to see what some other SCs have done to add a little "boost" to their board - to sorta add a little extra 'invite' to 'check it out'.

    Think of a line of doors along a street in the Red Light district of Ansterdam, and how you want to put a little something 'extra' out to entice people to come thru your door...  (It's just some humor, let's all relax...  )

    Here's what California has done, for example:

   California
   The Golden State, shining for Appleseed

    Not too shabby.

    How'd something spiffy like that look for your state?

    How to do it? Guess the easiest way is to contact the moderator with your suggested message.

    Some of the others posted on other states, should give you some ideas...

As a former Wisconsin resident for the first 35 years of my life. I would like to offer some suggestions.  Traveling through the states towns, most erected a welcome sign at the city limit's with the community slogan on it. It's amazing what people want their towns to be famous for.

I found a collection of these and thought they might provide some inspiration for those seeking to develop the state tag line. Or at least a chuckle. How many of these places have you been?

After reading them, I was inspired to write my original suggestion.  "GEMUETLICHKEIT and Guns." GEMUETLICHKEIT is a German word meaning among other things, Welcome, a  sense of community, Friendly, cheerfulness, the absence of anything hectic.

Or alternately "Gateway To American Heritage and Rifle Marksmanship"

Here are some actual slogans to get your muse on. Some are uniquely Wisconsin.

The attachment has the full list.

COMMUNITY THEME/SLOGAN
Clintonville The Good Life Unlimited
Green Bay Toilet paper Capital of the World
LaCrosse God's Country 
Lodi Home of Susie the Duck
Milwaukee A Great Place on a Great Lake
Racine Kringle Capital of the World
Rhinelander Home of the Hodag
Sheboygan Bratwurst Capital of the World

Or my all time favorite Bumper sticker " Come and Freeze in the Land of Cheese"

Living in Nevada now our states will be challenging to keep it PG Rated.






One Man awake, Awakens another. The second awakens  His next-door brother.
The three awake can rouse a town. By turning the whole place upside down.

The many awake can make such a fuss. It finally awakens the rest of us.
One man up, with dawn in his eyes, Surely then, Multiplies. Lawrence Trib

Hello Group; There was a fellow Appleseeder once from the Illinois and Fox river valley who had as his tag (As long as there is lead in the air there is hope) at least thats the way I remember it... Just so ya know that not our version of spray and pray..
 Take some time to bring this sport and the culture to those who are near you, do a little every day never to much but just enough to keep them comming back for more, it works.. Pappy

Wisconsin:
*Making Swiss cheese one Appleseed at a time.
*Once the badger state, but now riflemen have made them extinct.
* Where flatlanders come for protection when the shtf.
* Where men are men and the women can out shoot most of them
* We teach our children (to shoot) well.
Stand up for what's right.... Even if you stand alone.

I will likely have to PM Fred to have our slogan added.  Apparently a Moderator does not have the necessary Administrative priviledges
