Through the efforts of a press release from Poppy and with the help of a local business leader, we managed to get into the Delphos newspaper on the front page.  Thank Bruce for helping to advertise the hikes, this gets others involved and brings the trail to the attention of folks who did not understand that there was a trail sometimes within feet of thier homes.

Poppy sent in a photo at 9:30 pm and it was in the paper early the next morning.

Poppy ran with the ball on this one.  He is an excellent salesman and statesman when it comes to the BT.  I think there will be a lot more newspaper articles this year when we pass through small towns.  Too bad we didn't do it earlier.

Any and all PR is a good thing for the BT and BTA.  If it gains us just one new member, that is one more than what we had!
