I have been passing out business cards to the local tackle shops and folks seem to love them! If anyone is interested in having a few to put in your wallet or even take to your local tackle shop (we'll set up a forum just for them) let me know, and I'll send you as many as you want. Delmarva is a big place and I'm having trouble covering it all by myself. :eusa_wall:

PM me if you are interested, please.

This is what they look like: <---FRONT--->BACK

Hey that is how I found this site, got one from bucks place a few months back then I lost the card, when i found it i joined. I would like a few just pm me so we can work out how to get it to me.

Okay, lets do it like this: PM me how many you want and your mailing address. I'll send them to you with a plastic business card holder as well (or more).

Now, the reason I am doing this is pretty obvious, I would like more people to join the site... But.... There is a story behind this method.

A few years ago, I was on a fishing site. I was brand new (well after a 10 year hiatus) and was very interested in getting back into the surf fishing scene. I was a "green horn" on a well established site and I was like a kid in a candy shop. I wanted to promote that site as best I could and told every fisherman I saw. Finally, I asked the Administrator of the site if I could get some site business cards to distribute. He basically blew me off like I didn't matter or he didn't need any help. So... Now I'm going to try it my way.:)

I'm not sure BPS would do anything with them....Probably have legal issues with supporting a site like this...you know how those big companies can get. I'd take a bunch, but Manassas is pretty lame in the Bait and Tackle arena, I have Dick's and Walmart to choose from when I need something. Sheesh, I promote yours more than I promote mine Sam LOL :cool:

you could hold a seminar there and get some advertising that way.

or even a meeting like eastern shore jeeps has. might get some interest

Roger, I have talked with the Store manager of Gander and have a few associates here on the forum. I haven't seen them lately, but I hope they let me know when they run out of cards.

Jeff, thanks buddy. [sIDE NOTE, NOT A HIJACK] I gotta get out there and fish with you again. Actually, I don't think I've ever fished with ya? Unless you can count standing around, drinking beer, talking it up and just about freezing to death. LOL.

I can remember you saying, "Ahhh, those poles are down there somewhere (in the dark) If somethin's gonna get hooked, it's stay on there until I get to it. :D
