    But, if you want some that are professionally printed let me know, and I'll get you in contact with my local host, where my publishers will be sending 50-100 or so.

    I was actually planning to print and make several copy of your event flyer for distribution and you can get me in contact with your local host and obtain some more copy and coordinate with your host in planning for this event. I'm very active in participating in our local Running Room store group run clinic and running barefoot makes us a few of a kind. Lots of folks are very interested in BF running/walking they just need some proffessional advise from expert like you Ken, to help them start.

    Before you folks do to much publicity, we have an alternate venue for my multimedia presentation at Runner's Mark in Port Credit between 4pm and 5pm. How much publicizing has been done so far? Would it be a problem to change to the new venue and time. This might work out better as I can do my full multimedia presentation... unless you folks prefer the simple format?

    The best thing would be to interact with you and your barefooting brain, and gain motivation from the experience. Plus, since it's a holiday here, you may get more attendees in the morning as many would have plans for Canada Day.

    Also, traffic between Mississauga and Toronto would be killer later in the day as people return from a long weekend at the cottage.

    Yeah, I think we'll go with both events. If people want to see my presentation, and buy books from me, they can come to the evening show. Of course, if you already have my book, I can auto-foot-print-graph them at either event. Just waiting for final confirmation from the store.

    This was a very successful event. I had a good time and enjoyed meeting everyone. It was definitely worth the 2hr. drive from Peterborough. Thanks to all those who made it happen.
