Great information! Thanks for posting these dates. Our local Entertainment Ft Smith monthly magazine is happy to work with us to announce these dates in each issue. They ask for notification at least 4 weeks in advance, and their own events planner would be the contact person. It can help to bring out many more visitors to our events. I hope someone wishes to become the AOAS club liaison to E Fort Smith, unless of course, someone has already undertaken this.

Hey guys, it's been forever. I'm looking to get involved as soon as work slows down. Anyone ever think about doing an AOAS Facebook page? It's easy and would give more exposure.
Who's the club president these days?

Marcus, I think you want to start w/ Dave Grosvold. Last I knew, he was the website admin. We haven 't had much traffic because membership is requested beforehand, raising the level of security. Apparently, there have been postings w/ all kinds of spam in the past, and Dave has avoided all that with his method. So, not sure what he's say, but you are right - if we could find a safe means for more exposure, i'm sure there'd be more involvement! I don't know how safe facebook would be, but if it was a simple set up just to drive people to the website, it might be worth some looking into.
