A few years back this responsibility kind of fell into my hands which along with posting show photos kind of takes some time for me to do.
I enjoy doing both but the biggest pain in the butt part is trying to get members to show up for the photo when we set a time. And then I always hear from those who miss it because they forgot....LOL
A couple of years back Kevin Frith helped by running around grabbing members at photo time which gave us a huge turnout.
Last year I asked members to send me a text that they wanted to be notified by text at the time to head over which a few did and it helped.
But It sucks trying to run around getting people for the photo as like most of you I'm selling also.
So what can we do to make this better this year and get a good turnout again for the photo?

The photo time will be 11:am Wednesday morning at the normal spot unless we no longer want it.
Any member who wants a text notification please text me a message with your name and that you want to be reminded by a text about 10 minutes ahead of time. The Text I send out will be a blanket reminder text to all the numbers I get.
612-750-2359

Thanks for any help and ideas to make this better!

Good talking with you today, Mike. Thought I'd say "hi", and also bring your Iowa Gas photo poll up to the top. See you there! John

Hay, I have never been there when the picture was taken, a couple of times DB super imposed my picture so it looked like I was there, so yes, I want to be in the picture. One nice thing about this is that Jolly and I are sharing rooms, I'll ask him to make sure my a,,is there in time.

Mike you suggested a picture "at the normal place". For the benefit of us newbies where is the normal place?
