A worthy endeavor!
 
I'd like CFT to have more visability before we attempt to host any sort of public event.
I have a fiendish plan to approach the PD about doing a story on us- I was thinking when we have our 100th member. I figure by then our purpose & goals will be nicely defined.
 
Meanwhile, getting the CFT name out in letters to the editor, etc. will be a good way to increase membership.
Please everyone, save the link below- trust me, there will be plenty to write about in the near future!

I think you three infidels should practice and when we get you to do a coffee place we should aim to combine it with a small CFT fundraising type thing-you know, just pick a group agreed upon charity and take donations for that charity during the gig? What do you think? We could let the charitable outfit know in advance and they could notify their members and maybe they would show up and give the infidels more attention and the coffee house more revenue and it would be good for all.
 
This occurred to me last week because I have a very good friend who has MS and owns a bar. Well, the bar, is down the road from Browns training camp and on Sundays after home games some of the team comes in very late, and um, my friend let's them stay after hours and locks the bar doors and the guys stay all night practically. So, they got to know my friend with MS and it was Derek Anderson and Josh Cribbs idea, cause my friend was involved in the national MS society, for her to have an MS fundraiser at the bar and they would be guest bartenders to help bring people out. Well, it was on the news, courtesy of the Browns PR people-my friend who owns the bar does not have PR people, LOL!
 
Anyway, I went, and talked to some of the MS society folks there. They said they sent out 21,000 emails to everyone on their list in Ohio. About 400 people showed up and bought raffle tickets (for signed footballs, shirts, etc). They had like 10 of the Browns starters show up. But I am thinking if we notify a particular charity that we would like to do something, they would notify their members. Ok, we don't have the Browns or anything but still, I think we could get a good showing for a charity, especially at a coffee place, and if we invited the charity to be involved and invite their members. At least it is a start and something inexpensive we could get going and maybe someday we can aspire to bigger charity things. What do you think?
 
Oh, and here are a couple pics. Um, I WAS standing up in the one of me and Derek Anderson!!!!! HONEST!!!!!!! And you know, these guys are really nice people. You would never know from talking to them that they make more money than anyone else (except DA, I guess he is severely underpaid). You could sort of tell from the cars in the parking lot though. But they are really nice people. I watch the games with a completely different slant now cause I feel I have a personal take on some of the players.
