    I tend to agree with YIH that uniform postcards would be a good idea to send out. It would show that we're organized and that we mean business.

    Only problem is we have limited time. If something could be produced by say, the end of the weekend, we could be in business.

    Grace- what is happening to accomplish this? Anything?

    I still can't believe this is happening!

    Let me look into getting a bulk of Cincy postcards. We need to move quick. Even if I get these out tomorrow, by the time you get them there will be less than two weeks, and by the tiem you send to Tenclub, there will be a week or so.

    I've just put very short messages referencing the desire for lots of YIELD in Cincy. Uniform would be better, but I think time is more of the essence here!

    I have a question about this boat that takes us from the Kentucky side to the Ohio side. Where can we get on it on the Ohio side to head over to the Beer Sellar? My plan is to park somewhere on the Ohio side, go to the arena to pick up my tickets, and then head over to the Sellar. Anyone have any info on where I can get on this boat?

    Well, if Grace's roommate falls through the cracks, I can try to get something designed by the end of the weekend that I could post for everyone to download, print out, and send to the 10c.

    Fanch, what kind of text did you include in the postcards you sent?

    FoxyMop probably can provide details on how often the Beer Barge will be crossing the Ohio. I can't imagine very often. I am getting my tix at the venue and then heading over to the Beer Sellar. From there I'll cross ride the Beer Barge to the show & back. Maybe a stop at Hooters is in order after the show.

    Very short, very simple. THe one from today was said "Please play lots of YIELD for Cincy 6/24/06! We're having CCFA fundraiser that will be YIELD-themed, adn we'd love it!"

    Different variations of that. Short enough that someone will read it, and with minimal elaboration. I may write more on subsequent mailings.

    I'm not opposed to this, except I don't want to have to pay to park just to get my tix. Any tips on cheap/free parking spots where I can park for a few minutes just to pick up my tickets?

    Ummmm....not sure. The Cincy Reds Stadium has a "temp" area that is closely watched so that people can run up, buy game tix, and run back to their cars. I have only seen 2 shows at USB Arena, and always had tickets ahead of time. I'll call and find out over the weekend.

    Most of the shows for Cincy are at the now-famous Riverbend Amphitheater.

    If she creates it and emails it to me, I can host it on yieldfanclub.com and everyone can download it from there. That sounds like a great way to do it to me.

    Scan both sides into 2 seperate image files. Email those to me. I'll insert them into a word document and convert it to PDF. Then, I'll just offer the PDF file on yieldfanclub.com.

    And DIY is the best way. I would think the band would appreciate a grassroots look and feel more than they would something that looks too corporate, if you know what I mean.

    That's not an issue as long as you can scan it into a common image format, such as .jpg, .gif, .png, etc.
