Last year wasn't very good , but I didn't pound the pavement advertising either. So this year I have been knocking on doors and putting out fliers and business cards to drum up business. So far I have picked up 10 new clients to add to my previous 7 and also won second commercial client.

I think that will work. My guess is that we could all meet in either Columbia, Gaithersburg, Germantown or Rockville. I will research some resturants in those areas to see what's available. If you or anyone else who wants to attend has any suggestions, please post them so that we can all decide on a location and date.

Frederick would be best for me. i know it isn't located centrally in the state, but with the mountains, it sure does drain your gas really fast.
