Making The Most Of Music Festivals Little did Marvin Arnsdorf and Paul Himmelsbach know that the event they mapped out on a cocktail napkin that day would become a permanent entry on the golf calendars of thousands of amateur golfers around the world. The Cadieux Cafe played a role in the band"s early years as a part of the venue"s Mussel Beach festival wristbands in 2001. They have come a long way since and suffered some hardship and line-up changes along the way. In late 2001, bass player DeNardo experienced a serious stroke which left his right arm paralyzed. After a great deal of local outreach to fund his physical rehabilitation and an ingenious solution to keep him up front with the band, he now performs his bass-lines on a keyboard system. He"s back in fine form. This decision has a lot to do with your goals. Are you looking at turning potential prospects to customers? Dazzle your existing customers? Develop relationships sport wristbands with associates? Tailgating is simply getting up plenty of brochures, samples and any products you may have on hand. Get together plenty of kits or mini kits and take them with you. Create signs that say "FREE AVON" one someone comes up and asks what you mean by free AVON tell them you have free brochures and samples. Finish it off by letting them know you are giving full size products for anyone who joins AVON today. Let them know it"s only $10 and there are no quotas. Even if they aren"t interested give them the opportunity to earn their products at a discount just buy opening an AVON account for themselves! Many will find this as a way to save money and then in return become a rep and most likely start selling to others! My first sales were at TAMUCC at a small open art festival event wristbands. Very low-key but sold all my little ink drawings and cards I created for 5 bucks a pop I was stoked... being a poor college woman. Word of mouth is effective and I have enhanced this with having professional business cards to help with referrals. Guinness Book of World Records title for the largest pecan pie ever baked! The town has also managed to score the record for the largest pecan cookie, brownie, and pecan and ice cream party! These events are fun and exciting. I personally will be going to Delta Fair and Music Festival so that I can take my daughter to enjoy all of the rides and see all of the vendors, I am a sucker for good crafts and end up spending a bundle. On that note, I hope this will guide you in some ideas for the weekend. Labor Day signifies the end of summer and there is no need to let it go to waste.

HONG KONG - The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government is considering whether to ban the so-called "Hong Kong National Party" from continuing operation in accordance with the Societies Ordinance.

A letter has been sent to the so-called "Hong Kong National Party," Lee said, adding that a decision will be made in 21 days or after receiving a written explanation.

An assistant societies officer had given Lee a recommendation to issue an order to ban the operation of the so-called "Hong Kong National Party" in accordance with the Societies Ordinance.
