Thread: Fly-in notice

  1. #1

    Fly-in notice

    If only 20% of the members use the web site, perhaps BAC should select 4 or 5 flyins and publish the dates in the magazine. We can place the others on the web site. I would suggest The Oshkosh picnic, Sun n Fun, Arlington and a few others. Maybe more members would come. Thoughts?

    This sounds like a good idea to me if we know of events in time. I am sure that any events planned far enough in advance would be very welcome in BACTalk. The big ones you mentioned seem to be the main events. I know that I wanted to mention my upcoming regional events in the region news section but did not have enough details by deadline. I think that you are very right in looking for a way to contact members that don't often visit the site.

    Your idea has a lot of merit and the big events you mentioned would be easy to include in the magazine as the dates are known well in advance. Other BAC sponsored events could be included provided the timing works. Any exposure we can get to BAC events and others should have a positive impact on attendance. Due to budgetary considerations, the number of issues of BACTalk have been reduced but still, any notice we can get out to the members is good thing, in my view.
    All for one!

    RD's, poll your Regions for the rest of the year. There are usually events that repeat annually. (Sorry, Northeast, I did not do the "Up the IRS" event this year. Next year for sure.)
    Rick gives us plenty of notice on the magazine. Let's plug some column space!

    Definitely find a way to get BAC magazine readers over to the website, obviously they can attain more information about the event by logging in and asking questions, be great to hear from them.

    I know that I am remiss in this, but I know us regional directors can email all our region members in one swoop. This might contact some that don't log onto the site. Now..... if only I could find my notes on how to do this.....

    Bob, I'm not so sure your assumption is valid. I don't know about the new website but there used to be a feature on the old website that was available to the Board that showed the last time a member had logged onto the website. I was amazed at how many members had logged on the last day, last week, last two weeks, etc. I think visits to the website are more frequest than you think. Many may be silent visitors. Maybe Mark G can tell us something on frequency of visits to the website.

    Well then either the website is not as active as it used to be or my memory is not as good as it used to be.

    Hope I don't cause too much work for Dan Jonas by mentioning this, but he is able to pull a list of members within a certain radius of a fly-in location. He pulled two 100nm radius lists for me for two fly-ins. I then (manually) put the members email addresses in a distribution list and sent an email with the fly-in info. A little more work for us, but it targets the probable attendees without flooding everyone's email.
