Pleasantly surprised
« on: April 17, 2006, 03:03:34 pm »
At the SASS clubs' matches in the Dept. of WI that I have participated in, they are very few participants that are dressed in military outfits, most are "cowboys" and gamblers. At the match by Ripon on April 15, 2006, there was a gentleman that was dressed as the  Civil War Union Lieutenant General. He usually is dressed as a gambler. I commended him for his superb outfit. He told me of the research he did to get it correct. Too bad I didn't have a camera with me.

Sadly to say, I forgot.  :-[ But, I thought about it on the way home.  :) I will mention it the next time I see him, Sir.

What we need is some recruiting flyers to hand out. 

Once we get the website back under control, perhaps we could post a recuiting application that explains what the GAF is and how to enlist.

Any volunteers to put something like that together?

Good Afternoon, General;

I would be happy to assist in creating an application for enlistment/commission in the GAF.

I can save it off as a document, a pdf, and in html, allowing multiple uses.

I have the honor to remain,

Your Obedient Servant,

Mind you I am willing to host the website on my server.  It may reduce some of the problems we may be having.
