York Daily Record
« on: April 15, 2013, 05:57:46 pm »
Watch this paper if you're local and receive it. Our Club and it's Annual Jeep Show is being advertised.

For those of us "not" in the distribution area I will place the "on-line" link as soon as it's forwarded so we all can view it on the web.

I saw the advertisement for the club in this Sunday's paper.  However, the editor who paginated it broke the web address into two lines of type and hyphenated it like this: 
www.pa-jeeps.org .  When you type that in, you don't get to our site.   There was certainly room for her to put the web address on its own line and not break into another line.

If you run another free ad, I'd consider adding the time, date, and location of our club meetings to the text.  Make it easier for them to find us.

If all of these vehicle club advertisements and events in the York Sunday News Paper are free, boy we did not take advantage of that situation.
There are two sections with auto clubs and one section with auto events, I would have liked to have seen our advertisement in the EVENTS column, if (space permitting  :().

I explained everything clearly and in detail in a phone conversation. If it was misprinted then "she" the news writer dropped the ball.

"FREE" is not always the "best" way to go reguardless if they print it 500 times. They may misprint it 500 times.

I tried, they failed. It is what it is and I will follow-up with our concerns.

"she" has a name, which I should not print here and a email address which is.      chirko@ydr.com 
Information can be sent to her about our event or club information in detail, some events / auto. clubs have up to 14 lines.

go to.      www.inyork.com/drive     to view other events / auto. clubs.
or           www.inyork.com/drive.

The only above differences in the above two (www's) is the last . (period)  :-\ at the end of the address, the period is printed in the News Paper.
I think we can put information directly in the paper, I think this may be free also, I did not see anything about $ to do this.

OK, the article in the York Daily Record - Friday's edition is so much better, way-to-go Rick 8).
Mr. Keezel  from Costly Obsession Car Club had something to say about our club also, (you have to read the article to understand this sentence).

Yeah, I saw that they put a quote from the previous club into our entry.  Reminds me of a story that I heard where a lady circled all the errors in the newspaper with a red pen, made an appointment with the editor-in-chief, threw the newspaper down in front of him, and stated, "You need me"!  He hired her on the spot.

Our ad also stated that we're givers back to society.  Speaking of which, how's the CCC food drive going that I started in January?  Is it time to make a pick up and deliver it?

I'm still finding the show being listed in other event listings like the Where & When, Pennsylvania Travel Guide, free at your local Turkey Hill Stores, this publication covers all over Pennsylvania.
I think our advertising crew has done a excellent job at promoting our show, I have been catching it listed here and there in local printed listings.
But still am being asked about the show when people see the STAFF shirts (Ooh, how about   tie dyed STAFF shirts 8) some year) I wear around York and Adams Counties.
I may have to pick up fliers for next years show and drop off at local auto parts stores, ADVANCED AUTO, AUTO ZONE and NAPA to name a few, if the store managers will allow this, the employees are asking me about the shows dates and times.
