hi steven,

this saturday is the annual foster rd art walk festival:
http://www.myspace.com/fosterartwalk

when they asked us to participate we let them know about the free clinics, which they, in turn have advertised on their posters that are all over the neighborhood.

the festival goes from 10am-6pm, and there are events up and down the street.
so seth and i were talking and this seems like a good opportunity to find new supporters of ECT (and meticon).

some options are: in addition to running the bike clinic in the back, having a canopy in front of the shop, with ECT members promoting your mission and goals, and selling the CD's and and enrolling interested folk in the classes, and promoting upcoming rides. this would require more than just you on Saturday, do you think any of the board members would be available for this. we will probably open at 11am at the latest, and may actually open at 10am (when the walk starts).

we believe that this is a great opportunity to promote the bicycle shop and Exchange Cycle Tours, and with just a small amount of advance planning (short notice, i know), we will see great results.

thanks.
