    Default Want to tack up some flyers for FLTAP?

    We need a few good souls to put up some flyers for the Fourth Annual Retiring Racehorse Sale at Finger Lakes. We need people in various parts of New York State, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and maybe Vermont and New Hampshire.

    The sale is November 9th, so it would be great if the flyers could go up in tack stores, feed stores, and anyplace else you can think of, this weekend at the latest. If you would be willing to spend some time doing this, please PM me with an email address, and I'll forward the poster to you.

    If I can figure out a way to get it to a spot where I can link it, I'll do that tonight. It's really cool. Since Courageous Comet is a Finger Lakes alumnus, we asked Becky Holder if we could use them, and she very graciously agreed.

    Would it be possible to put the link on the FLTAP website?
    Maybe create a 'downloadable flier'?

    Otherwise, if you can't find a place to put it, do e-mail me one and I will gladly print off a bunch and run 'em around.
    I need to do that with fliers for my local rescue I help out, so the gas will be spent on ya' both.

    That's a great idea, Angela, but I don't have access to the FLTAP website, and I'm afraid that the webmaster might not be able to get to it right away. I'm afraid that the only way to do it is the hard way. PM me your address, and I'll send you the file.

    Shoot, the file size for the flyer is too big, and I can't upload it to the reply. Can you downsize a PDF file?

    Go to www.yousendit.com and you can send the PDF that way - for free . I work in engineering and we typically send huge files via email and we use this website all the time - makes things so much easier. You only need the basic one though you can upgrade for a fee which would allow you to send more than one file at once and allow you to send files over 100mb. But we only use the basic one and it's been fine. All you need is the recipients email address .

    Unfortunately you can't really downsize a PDF .

    If you can get me flyers, I'll get some distributed around here. I'm in the Albany/Saratoga area.

    How could I ever forget the Canuks, up-at-5? If you will PM me your email address, I'll send you the file.

    I can get the file through the email, it's just that I wanted to post it here on the board, so everyone could see how spiffy it is this year.

    I still need a couple of volunteers in the Northern PA area. Any takers?

    My sister lives on the NH/Mass boarder so I'll send her the poster and she can distribute in her area. I work in the Farmington area so I'm sure you have more than enough in this area.

    Ok I just printed off a couple as I run out of the house on errands,... and they are VERY NICE!

    C'mon guys! If you can not adopt/buy one, at least let others in your area know that the sale is occurring and the potential there!
