I'm still waiting on the OK-one draw backs to not owning your inn. Will ask again on Monday...time is running out, good idea!

Update: Last night I had dinner with the Commissioner of Tourism at the Lenders Dinner at the Fest. She invited me to the reception Tourism was having tonight for writers & organizers of the Fest. I took the biz cards for the Project. The writers were all coming up with ways they could promote it and web sites they could list it on! Have to print more in the morning - went through 50 today - and one of the men at the reception is the brother of a General! We have 2 Generals working this!!

Send it to any military base or post and you can promote it in 2 seconds. :) They all have newsletters.

There are all sorts of military news web sites. Our chamber does lots of promotions in some military mag in D.C. but I can't remember what it is

Most posts and bases have a newspaper. This could also be promoted through the different branches' morale and welfare organizations. For example, the army's is the U.S. Army MWR (family, morale, welfare and recreation).

Absolutely, the bases and military papers are the way to go with the military. There were people at the Fest from all over the Country - the man who commissioned DH to do a painting is from CO.
We also want to publicize this through the mainstream Media to let the Country know what B & Bs are doing for our military. The writers I spoke to thought it was special and the more writers I can get invoived writing articles or mentioning it in different venues, the better.
