Relating this back to the question of an FT table at the Gathering, is there 
any doubt that publicity at the Gathering will lead to more memberships and 
more long distance hikers on the FT?  Not in my mind.  I've been to the last 
two Gatherings.  Many of the hikers there are looking for new challenges, 
especially during the winter when our conditions are most conducive.  A 
little publicity with the right group can go a long way -- because they wish 
to hike a long way!  :)

Happy trails,
