Here's a view of the public flyer for the Lindy Exchange version 1.

I'll bet we surpass 200 registered Exchange goers TODAY!

No problem, I'm happy that you're excited to post this to the public. Karly threw these together so we could get some outside advertising to people outside of our swing community. If you'd like to print some out just download on of the PDF versions here:

Remember, it's easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission.

Also, I updated the band page: http://portlandlx.com/bands

Karly, you rock! Russ makes it sound so easy and simple, but I know it's not! Very nice flyer!

Thank you. smile.gif You're right it took me a bit more time than just throwing them together. I wish it would have been that easy.

I hope these flyers help us generate interest in Portland among beginning and non-dancers. That's their intent, so if any of you know anyone that might be remotely interested, print up a flyer and give it to them. I found myself handing one to some people at a local lunch spot when they were playing Django Reinhardt there. They said the really liked the sound of him so I gave them a flyer and mentioned that the Lola's Room portion would play music inspired by Django.

Happy promoting! Let's get some new people out.

You're right... "threw together" is poor wording...

I should have said: "Karly took the amount of time and effort necessary for a person of her skill level and talent to produce the flyer you see."

or something like that...

Thank you Karly, for putting your effort into making this flyer!!   smile.gif  biggrin.gif  wink.gif

I gave the flyer to some of the students at the beauty school, and one of them said they were interested in coming and letting others know.  biggrin.gif   smile.gif

The Portland Lindy Exchange only happens once every two years... so if you miss this one, you'll have to deal with two years of regret before the next one.

I'm sure you'll make the right decision.
