Why? Are you looking for a sponsor?

I am in communications. Voice, data and internet telephony. However sometimes I think I get paid to type on the computer.

Actually I am a jerk of all trades.

Why do you ask?

The APBA puts out their standard packet of BS. I'm looking for some leads on solid marketing contacts/connections that have an 'in' with clients interested in marketing products to fans in the boating world. There has to be someone that posts on this site that has actual knowledge of people around the powerboating world that are looking for this type of exposure or is everyone independently wealthy w/ bottomless pockets? If they are, great! If not, point me in the right direction. Come on!

In 98 our team spent about 10 k in press packets and different print media just to send out to sponsors and it is not impossible but it is tedious.

good luck.

We are not looking for the easy ride. Tedious is fine. We have press packets made up but need the marketing connection to get them out.
