Need help with Bristol, WI
« on: June 02, 2009, 08:46:21 PM »
I spoke to the Operations Manager today about what they are doing to get the word out about AS. To my surprise there hasn't been a single thing at their club. The man said he hasn't heard from anyone at AS since the time back in the winter during a board meeting when it was proposed. I have sent him a flyer through email so he has something that will get things going over there. He is very willing to put information in their newsletter that comes out on June 15th and he is about to update their calendar since it only goes to July right now.

What I need from some people is to get over there and get AS promoted! We need people to get flyers over there so people will know about this event and get signed up for it. If you would do this, please send me a PM so I know what you will do over there and when you will go, thank you.

Trisha,

As soon as I have the Insurance info to relay to them, they will get the ball rolling.

I'll get back to you soon.

I just wanted to let everyone know that the Operations Manager is wanting promotional AS information so he can help us out to get the word out.

Garand69, we need to get the insurance information to him ASAP since this shoot is just about 2 months away, when can you get it to him?

We still can spread the word about that AS while Garand is gathering the insurance information, so everyone pass out flyers, talk to everyone, lets get some pre-regs and make this AS a great success!  O0

Trisha,

The Operations Manager is not our contact, I am very much in contact with our contact, and am very familiar with any deadlines we need to meet.

Also promotional material is being sent with the recently received insurance information, and they will have plenty to work with.

Awesome!  May I ask how many copies of fliers/articles they were sent?

Garand, I didn't know who the contact person was, so I called the number that I could find so I can talk to someone about what is happening at their range to help spread the word about Appleseed. Can you tell me what you have sent or are sending him so I have an idea? I just know that the man I spoke to said he does the website and the newsletter so I figured he would be a good person to talk to to make sure Appleseed is being promoted. I would appreciate a name and phone number of your contact since it would be very helpful for me the next time I call to see how things are going. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions especially regarding this matter.

What Bristol needs, is Boots On The Ground in Southern WI and Northern IL getting flyers out to local Gun Shops/Sporting Goods Stores, Local Radio, etc etc etc.

The rest of the details, especially those dealing with our Host, are covered.

If you live in the Bristol area, PLEASE CHIME IN HERE!  We need your help.  You are the Appleseed local "boots on the ground".

GIVE YOURSELF A PROMOTION!  Mr./Mrs. Bristol, B.O.T.G.  Sounds important, doesn't it?  IT IS!  Local BOTG is a MUST for the success of an Appleseed event. 

None of the BOTG work is difficult; answering a few questions by phone, e-mail or pm; hanging some flyers, communicating with the shoot boss.  Getting the event onto community calendars (newspaper and radio)  is pretty simple, and can be done by someone local who knows WHICH papers and radio stations to contact.  Hey, you don't even have to write the ads for the calendars; just ask for help here on this thread and you shall receive! 

Garand has already done all the HARD work scheduling the shoot. 

Trisha's doing her range liaison job following up with making sure that the RANGE is going to assist in promoting the Appleseed. 

Appleseed IS listed on the home page:
http://bristolranges.com/

With a nice link to the flyer:
http://bristolranges.com/Announcements/Appleseed%20Shoot%20August%202009.pdf

Which includes a link to the Appleseed website. 

All that is already done! 

So, who can pick up this local BOTG bucket?

OG

p.s. Garand, I forgot, what's the capacity on this range?  I know we talked about it, but cannot find it here on the forum. 
"My primary objective is to change hearts and minds, for that is where the gaping hole in the hull of the USS America lies. I am looking to make a spark and praying that it will ignite, by their own will, into a bonfire in their hearts and souls."  PHenry

Yes you read that right Wisconsin SIXTY-FIVE!!!!!!!

65!!! ALL ON ONE LINE!!!!!

If we have a range with a capacity of 65, EVERYONE better do EVERYTHING they can to fill this line! 

ROBBVIOUS, BOTG!  YOU ARE THE MAN <:)

On the day of this Bristol Appleseed, when we ask the shooters to RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU ARE FROM WI, WE BETTER SEE AT LEAST 60 HANDS GO UP. 8)  BTW, there are only 2 pre-regs as of today, so we'll see how many spots have a WI name on them.   &)

SHOOTERS, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO WANT TO MISS THIS ONE!  We just finished Shiocton with 58 shooters on one line.  THAT is an INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE FOR ALL. 

Garand, I know how those IL tactics work >:D; you're going to be submitting some secret news release to the club newsletter promising ANYTHING to the IL members who attend the Appleseed.   Well, don't forget, there is a WI shoot boss signed up and maybe a little WI v. IL team shoot will be worked into the COF!

Oooogeeez

65? wow that is great. We have two months to spread the word! So, that means for everyone, we need to you hand out flyers and if you would like to contact me and ask me how you can help please feel free to PM me.


I just want everyone to know that I sent the operations manager information to put in to their newsletter and Garand69 if you have anything else you would like to add that would be great. Also, if you want to know what I sent them just PM me. I also made sure he had the links to the Appleseed home page, event info and registration. I also sent him a small paragraph about Appleseed that I thought he could put on his website. He has been doing a great job getting links up about Appleseed and is going to have Appleseed information in their newsletter. I would also like to add that he is and has been very cooperative with me and with Appleseed.

$36 in range fees per shooter??  Did anyone mention that we are non-profit?? 8)      It is still the least expensive 2 days of rifle training you will find around... O0

Hi All,

Joined the forum after I saw traffic to ChicagoAppleseed.com from this string of posts - it was myself that set up the site and asked my blogger cohorts to promote (Tam from VFTP, Caleb from GUNNUTS, and David Codrea from The War on Guns).

The McHenry Country Sportsmen's Assoc and the State Line Rifle Assoc. have been asked to post as many flyers as possible in the
Northern IL, Southern WI area as possible.

We've gotten ~500 hits in a week and I've got one simple questions: Has this translated to any more folks signing up? Ie, Did it work?

Please feel free to email me if I can help further.

Sorry, haven't checked back in a few days - I'll add regional information sometime over this weekend.

Dropped off flyers at RGuns, Cabela's and GAT Guns (all Illinois) and have another guy that'll be dropping a stack of flyers in Kenosha Gander Mt. this weekend.

Also plugged the event on RimfireCentral.

Since a week has gone by now, and people have their new paychecks handy, did we see any additional participants?

Here is a task for ANYONE in WI.  If you are lurking and just haven't yet DONE something to help out WI APPLESEED, this is your chance.

If you REALLY want to do it up fancy, you can take that flyer and laminate one and hang it on the outdoor range.  You will reach the range attendees for sure.

It is amazing that many think that Illinois doesn't have a lot of shooters... I mean, Chicago is awash with "informal target shooters" and "casual plinkers"...  ;)

Just an update:
  • I've asked ISRA (Illinois State Rifle Assoc.) to post the "Chicago Appleseed" on their calendar and the page has been getting ~50 hits a day (the 22nd and 23rd).
  • I've also plugged the event at the local :~ IDPA :~ and :~ IPSC :~ groups.

Hoping that this is translating to some more pre-registrations. (I've asked OldGlory to let me know about the #'s after the weekend)

Lastly, I think some of the Bristol folks are wondering if there is anything that they need to do for or in anticipation of the event.

Have a great weekend everyone!
