We do have a few clubs that have never had a website and start their web journey from scratch.  Obviously before you have a website, you need a domain name.  Duh!  But, before you rush out and choose your domain name or name your website, you might want to consider the following points.

Sometimes it’s not so easy to create a logo from scratch that will work for your club.  What specifically does it take to make a good logo?

An effective logo is:

  • Simple
  • Memorable
  • Timeless
  • Versatile
  • Appropriate

Did you ever see the movie A Christmas Story? I love that movie. It’s set in the 1940's and is about a little boy named Ralphie, whose main quest is to get a Red Rider BB-Gun for Christmas. His mother keeps telling him to forget it because, "you’ll shoot your eye out!" One of my favorite scenes is when Ralphie (played by Peter Billingsley) sends off for a 'Little Orphan Annie Secret Decoder Ring.' When the ring finally arrives, he locks himself in the bathroom and tries to decipher the secret message that has been broadcast via a series of numbers on the Little Orphan Annie radio show. Thinking that he, and he alone, will crack the code that will probably make him a super hero, he is disappointed when the secret message "D-r-i-n-k M-o-r-e O-v-a-l-t-i-n-e" is revealed. The code was just too easy to break and meant absolutely nothing! He realizes that he’s been had.

Ralphie's experience is a little like choosing passwords on the Internet. Just so you know, you are not putting one over on anyone when you type in that "123456" password of yours. "Password" isn’t any better, and sorry ladies, but "princess" is also no good according to a report released by Imperva, a data security firm that, last January, analyzed 32 million passwords that were exposed from Rockyou.com.

Football season is here again!  Have you ever attended (or watched on television) a football game where the spectators were given colored cards to raise in above their heads at a given time, forming  an image or slogan?  If you’ve ever seen such an exhibition, it makes it easier to understand pixels and how they work on a computer screen. 


A pixel (short for picture element) is simply an individual point of color on a digital image.  Just like fans hold up colored cards in a stadium individual pixels light up on your display screen to form a patterned image.

This is the season for membership drives in many clubs.  To members and officers that have been a part of a club for years, the reasons to join their club may seem obvious.  Many think that sharing a passion for a given hobby, competition or collector's platform is enough to attract new members to the club.  Although that is the primary reason for people to join, it may not be enough.  Your club may have many "perks", for it's members, that would make your club attractive to a prospective member.  It's a good idea to bring those advantages to the forefront when recruiting prospective members, as they may not be aware of all of the benefits associated with being a member of your club.  Let's consider a few:

Labor Day is much more than the end of summer. It is a holiday unlike most others, honoring not public figures or war victories, but the everyday worker, or anybody who has ever held a job in the United States.

In New York City, on the first Monday in September 1884, the Knights of Labor -- an early labor organization -- held a large parade to celebrate working people. Later that decade, labor organizations around the country began to lobby various state legislatures for recognition of Labor Day as an official holiday. In 1887, the first states to declare it a state holiday were Oregon, Colorado, New York, Massachusetts, and New Jersey. In 1894, Congress established Labor Day as a national holiday.

Statistics tell us that the two most popular months for festivals and events are April and October.  So we thought it might be a good idea to address one of the basic elements for any successful club event:  the event publicity poster.
