But I'm beginning to think we may have overestimated the interest in such an event because as of today we've sold just over 50 tickets. There are still two weeks to go and we're kind of out of ideas (and budget) about how to promote this event. At this point I'm reduced to stapling little notices on telephone poles and crossing my fingers.
The other event is sponsored by the dog owners organization I'm involved with. We're bringing in a dog expert to give a talk one night and two workshops the following day. She's not well known here in Victoria so we're working to get some excitement going about this event as well. I'm not so worried about this one because it doesn't happen until the end of November and we're easily able to identify our target audience--because they walk around attached to dogs by leashes.
