Rumor has it that the new facebook page is up and running. I don't FB, could someone give a review?

Also, MN is on board with the Border War format, out of the same Alma launch we have been using.

Sponsor page has not been added to our website as of yet, but I am being told that this is being worked on.

if anyone has anything else they would like to add, feel free.

Out of the unknown number of visitors to our Facebook page, 46 people have "liked" the page so far. Our Facebook administrator has made a few bowfishing related comments, and he also has The Mud and Chub, as well as the Petenwell tournaments posted on our "wall". A few bowfisherman have also made random comments. We also have about a half dozen photos so far.

"Wisconsin Outdoor Fun" (listed below) shared a link on our wall, and "Bowfishing Tournaments Nationwide" (listed below) has invited us to post our tournament info on their wall.

"Wisconsin Outdoor Fun shared a link on our page.
Enjoy some photos (including your booth!) from the Madison Fishing Expo Inc.:

"Bowfishing Tournaments Nationwide:
Gentlemen, come and "like" our new page and please post your tournament info here. The more info on tourneys the better for all Bowfishers. Spread the word of this new page, thanks"

It's still in it's infancy, but we should pick up steam. Our facebook page could mirror our website pretty closely, but that might bring in new users who frequent facebook, but would never visit our website. So in my opinion, I think having one is a good idea.
