Hi MagicBob - I think we can double-team that in January, once we know the rest of the prizes...Thanks for the help!

I've started to canvas...if people have contacts at any organizations that htey can exploit (i.e. turning magazine, etc.), please let me know.

As well, if you have any ideas for new places to try, post 'em here! :)

Andrew

Andrew, you sure work hard on behalf of everyone......Thank you!
Question- Unless I've missed it, might it not be a good idea to place a link on the front page that remains there year round and acknowledges the vendors with web sites or contact info for those who do not have one as those who have supported the BASH each year? I know I try to buy from them before going elsewhere and having them all listed in one convenient place would make it easy for everyone to find them.
Just a thought.....

Hi Bob!

I had that same thought...what we eventually came up with is that I'll post Jeff's front-page list in the Vendor Liaison section after the Bash, so that it's visible year-round. Having it on the front page for the entire year might give people the wrong impression re: advertising and vendor influence...

But yes, I plan to publicly post who has donated so that we can support them as well.

Thanks Bob!
Andrew
