I am gonna order that series of books looks cool.November 15, 2007 at 11:43 pm #52497
ant like what would you like to see??
here are some ideas… see what you think…
a short video ( history of bmx/ current bmx highlighting nj??) showing kids of a certain target age( like the ages the book is geared for)…plus showing older and younger riders, moms and dads racing too….(family aspect)
flyers to give out( track info) maybe a free race coupon or two? stickers?
a few racers old and young to speak to the school kids…..who would tell how they got started/ how they race now/ …who would be available for questions and answers afterwards…
info on the initiation of bmx into the 08 olympics and the 2010 youth olympic games…..
some big a** trophies of course.. to show off…lol
maybe have a local pro to sign some books…..
any other ideas to add??? how long would it be? when would it occur during what class? would it be during the day like during a health class or gym class?? or after school???November 16, 2007 at 12:05 am #52500
Deb AL is in pretty good with edison township, I am gonna talk to him and see if we can do something this school year. Before the season starts, so we can have a bunch of new riders out there. Man i think i will be busy this winter.November 16, 2007 at 12:23 am #52501
of course getting superintendants approval is first on the list… if anyone in your town has connections there it is a help…
also what about getting a “scholastic connection”..if you are going to promote their new book you can see about using their name…such as “njbmx and scholastic books will be presenting…….yada yada yada… maybe even get them to donate a bunch of books???
hmmmm have to think about this one…
