Last minute April 16-17 promo.

Time to do that last push to fill our NM lines.  :---
They seem a bit spartan this year. :-[ 
And not for lack of promo on our part. I know you guys have been working hard.
What is up with our state? NRAWC said even their events are down. We had nearly a full house last April and barely a handful this year. :'(
BlueFeather did a interview for the Raton daily rag thanks to a press release redneck sent in.
Go get em' guys!!!!

Cool. Good to know that the Press releases, A.S. Fliers and an intro, did some good.

All I did was do a google search for the town and "news". I got a list of newspapers, radio etc. For Fountain, CO I got some 16 newspapers, radio stations and TV stations. It only took an hour or less to find their email address and send them the news.

I have not heard from any "Press" from Fountain, CO. Hopefully they are calling our State Coordinator. Our numbers are way down from last year. I have no idea why. I wonder if this is a national trend? Regional?

From what I've seen it's going on almost everywhere and it isn't just Appleseed. Several other organizations I'm involved in have had less attendance at events and even camp outs we've put on. It appears people are just hiding out in their shells for some reason...

If only we could figure out the reason why we might be able to overcome their skittishness... Sigh.
