We may be the greatest club................... but only we know that!!!!!!!!!!!
When I get into a conversation with someone they tell me "are you the ones of Catholic Inst" ...."NO!"......"are you the ones of Gasan Showroom"......"NO!... We make our exhibition at the Avation museum"
ME: "We go to international shows and win Gold medals"
HIM: "And there is one with you who make churches out of match sticks?" ..... "NO"!!!!
No matter what............ they still don't get it!!!!!!!! If it's not in the newspaper it doesn't exist!
Our efforts are in vain!!!
We either make a serious team of PRO ......... or we just enjoy a back seat view!
Noel, not "we may be" but WE ARE THE GREATEST CLUB IN THE WORLD
And secondly, with whoever I meet, they tell me "rajtek ta fuq it-TV, kemm kont HELU intom ta l-Aviation Museum hux "
Joking apart, you have a point and we all know that, but we've had plenty of press releases & as Ivan steted earlier, we are at the mercy of journalists either or like everyone else and we do send out press releases before every HiS to every newspaper and every TV station (& Doc did send out a press release after last year's Euro after all) so it is not as bad as it looks from the PR team as we might be picturing them as we are still at the mercy of a journalist.
I'm not saying that we should rest on our laurels and expect the World recognition that SSM holds to SPEAK locally as if by magic, but sometimes it is not as easy as one thinks believe me, if one does not know someone from the station or newspaper personally & drive that someone to publish or attend the Expo, the press release would end up at the end of the pile and if you're lucky it would be published a month late like the Scavengers' & Beggars' press release after all
However as Ivan said earlier, those who think that they can IMPROVE the PR should step forward and make yourselves known to the comitte of which I am NOT a member
God Wills It
