Starting a Club-Now for Some Publicity

Your next move is to go to the editors of your town papers and ask them to give you a write-up in their next issue. While the main purpose of this bit of publicity is to let the boys know that you are going to start a rifle club, it lets their folks know at the same time that your club will keep the boys off the street, give them a chance to improve their spare moments and at the same time to indulge in a manly sport.

The editors will gladly run in reading notices, as it is their business to publish items of general interest, for of such are their papers made. Now, instead of merely asking them to write it up and so get only a paragraph or two the better way is to write the notices yourself and hand in something like this:


Why Not Join and Learn to Be a Crack Shot?

Other towns have their boys' rifle clubs, but up to the present time Sportstown has been a back number in this clean and healthy sport.

Better to be late than never, and our town will now have ranges where you can practice all the year around, and not only this but matches will be held and prizes given.

The first meeting to start the Sportstown Boys' Rifle Club will be held at the home of Mr. William Stock on May 22 at 8 o'clock. Everybody is invited, grown-ups as well as boys, and be sure to go and have your say whether you are interested in shooting or not.

As soon as the club is organized beginners will be taught to shoot by the best shots in Sportstown in a safe and sane way. Another purpose of the club is to promote social life among the boys.

The club will be conducted upon the small profits made from the sale of ammunition to its members. .22-caliber rifles will be furnished by the club to its members free and the ammunition will be sold to the members for 25 cents per box of 50 cartridges.

Two or three other write-ups of the same kind will help the good work along. These articles which you send in to the editors should be typewritten on 8x 10” paper and on one side only, and it is better to write each one up a little differently if you can.

Another good scheme is to print some notices on 8 x 10 cards announcing the time and the place the meeting is to be held and post these up in the windows of the hardware stores and gunsmith shops—with the permission of the owners, of course. They will be more than willing to help you, for it means money in their cash registers eventually.
