Give a Boost to Show Attendance
September 16, 2008

The Kansas Numismatic Association has come up with a good idea to spur attendance at its annual show June 12-14, 2009, at the Cessna Activity Center in Wichita.

It will offer a gasoline rebate to members of its member clubs who drive to the event with at least two other fellow club members.

The rebate amount is $50, which even with $4 gas can still cover the cost of bringing people into the show from quite a distance.

Anyone receiving the rebate will also be expected to volunteer for two hours at the show, helping out with setting up, cleaning up, greeting visitors, or whatever else needs to be done.

This is a clever way of keeping attendance up in uncertain times to make bourse dealers happy and for finding the necessary help to keep the show running smoothly.

Cliff Mishler brought this to my attention yesterday at lunch at the Crystal Cafe. The Kansas Numismatic Association Newsletter had just arrived and he had photocopied the relevant pages out of the current issue beforehand.

Other clubs might have other ideas to tackle the same problem. Let's share them.
