      One thing I noticed wandering around the facility was that many of the
      other groups (like the railroaders and the radioguys) had a 3 panel
      pamphlet with information about themselves and why/how to join. March
      should consider making one as well. They seemed to be very similar so
      maybe InfoAge has a template for this. I know March had the single handout
      sheet but the tri-fold could be placed with all the others in the main lobby.
