I was just using a little self-deprecating humor. :P


I know I'm a total feast for the eyes.

(See how I went the other way that time? :wink: :lol: )
Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

Since I'm new to the club, this might be an ignorant post ... if so, just roll your eyes and ignore it.

My RC club has a "press release" type of document that we have available to hand out everytime we see a media person. Media folks are always looking for facts(?) and data(?) - well, at least something to fill their copy - and stuff from that write-up usually shows up in their article. Now, in the past, they have given our members new names, but at least the club is mentioned and talked up. You could also have a web site link to additional pictures ... 180GO, special kites, members who have been made presentable through photoshop, etc ...

Cheers,
Tom

I think that's a very good suggestion. :up:

We do have a home page with photos and such, but it would be better to have a "media" page with photos and info aimed to members of the media.
A handout would be good too.

All we need is someone to write up a handout.
I wonder, who Jeff might Jeff be upJeff to doingJeff it?
Any [strike]jeffeteers[/strike] volunteers?

I like the photo which must have been taken during a gust--all the kites are flying sideways!
