    I've volunteered in the past for any PR position, even got a plug in for the NASC in an interview with a local news station. I have to do a lot of promoting for the band I'm in, and understand that it will make you or break you to a degree. I've seen people offer their services for several different positions but I don't think it was put to a vote, or seconded, or able to go past the point of simply saying Ill do it. Most people are content to follow. Some want the title of a leader, but not the responsibility. That seems to be human nature. Weve really got to get this core element together I.E. Prez, chair people, board members ECT... I really covering old ground that has already been discussed to death, but until the initial core is solidified Im not sure well progress much.

    PAK how you doing on the pamphlet? I thought what you had was just gorgeous, and was wondering where I could get several million copies


    Wesley, the are several thread pertaining to the positions needing to be filled, as well as a description of each job.

    I guess you are right, Zak. So we need to fill positions, secure our website for Members info and gathering together, and folks to put up some time and energy. I won't beg or plead. I will say, now is the time. I will be glad to be on the growers board, even take the reins if need be. Who else will step up? We are looking for those who are willing to try to lead and guide us through our start. I am one. Zak is PR man, and PAK? Ozzy? Noah? Wesley? PDX? Imduff? SarraceniaO? Sarraceniaobsessed? Jimscott? NepG? Colieo? Finch? Ready to hear from you all. Schloaty, PM me. I will write Carl Mazur again for a website building update. Copper is looking into a chatroom for all of us to gather in and organize ourselves. Casper is unavailable, so we have to work around that. OK?? I work this Saturday, so Saturday after 5:30 PM PST I am available for chat. Sunday is open, so far. Copper, keep us updated on the Chatroom, and when. Thanks everyone! Think about it, and get back to us soon. Winter is a great time to organize, and grow out seedlings. And that is just what I am doing. CP 12 months out of the year. YAY!!!!!!

    Hi Zak

    I still have to finish the brochure but there isn't a lot to do on it. I'm working on it at work and I can only do that when I'm a little slow. I have to correct some copy and work on the real photos for it. Getting to it is the problem.

    As far as "millions of copies"...got millions of dollars? lol Once this is complete, I can print SOME copies here and there, but I can't print thousands. I'm really just sneaking this at work because nobody keeps track of my materials. So I can do 50 here and 50 there. But I can't print large quantities. Although I can set this up to where it can go to a printer to be printed by the thousands, color printing is very expensive. So is color copying.

    The Kinkos here charges 79-cents for 8 1/2" x 11" color sheet. 50 copies of a two-sided brochure makes it 100 copies. So you're talking almost $80 per every 50 color brochures. So...we CAN get "millions of copies", but it will cost a lot of mooooola. Like I said, I can print some out in batches here and there. But I'm hoping people will be a little judicious about who they go out to so they aren't wasted.

    I will try to work on some stuff today at lunch. And maybe stay late tonite too. I'd like to get that finished as well. I also need to work on Brook's latest article on sarracenia seeds. Its another good one. I have other freelance work to do as well so...I'm kinda slammed... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Gotcha PAK.

    Yes, I'm aware of the expense, and was only kidding about the millions.
    I do that sometimes [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] But never the less it may not be a bad idea to copy it on to a transferable media say a CD so that people can have it printed up at their own convience in there own neck of the woods. Just thinking. I know these things take time I also work a full time job as well as the whole band thing, that will have me jumping almost every weekend. FORTUNATELY I should be able to integrate the NASC into my printing and traveling excursions. You right about wasting resources. The color brochure would do well for BG and such, maybe even under glass at the local H.S. bullitin board.

    With all of us being busy it may also not be a bad idea to have several people assigned to an area almost like a shift work scenario if you will. The web site will be instrumental in keeping track of those things. Oh well one thing at a time.
