    I believe middle to late Feb. is good, then follow up with a phone call for a reminder first part of March.

    Last year I did flyers in early March. That seemed to work well. I think most of my competition in this area is timed about the same. I think Jan-Feb is bad because of money spent during Christmas and general crappy weather. By March I think people are beggining to think spring is on the way. Good luck!

    I didn't think it would take long to remove the link once it was noticed. Guess I was right.
