Letting our presence be known......
I just got back from Tellico. It was my first trip there and it was pretty good. But we were supposed to be part of the "show Murphy, NC what Jeepin means to them" crowd. Opening weekend and we were supposed to show up in GREAT numbers. This didn't happen. I'm not sure if it's all the rain or the fact that other groups were heading to other OHV parks. Either way it was a bit of a let down....... in that respect. Our numbers just didn't amount to anything.
But I heard about something that I thought was a good idea and I'd like to share. It seems that some Jeepers had cards made up similar to business cards. These cards said something along the lines of "I'm in your business, and your town, because there are trails nearby". When paying your bills, you just leave a card with the waitress/clerk/cashier or on the table.
Seems like an easy way to make the Jeepin community stand out.
I never seen any of these cards, but I think this is something that we should all participate in. Even if the trails aren't being threatened, the businesses could get a better idea of what money we bring with us. It seems like a simple idea, and would promote our sport.
..... Just a thought......but I think it's a good one...
