Recruiting new players
We've been playing ever week for about 9 months now and we just can't seem to get many new players. We can always get the min 6 to play but the most we've ever had snow up in one night has been about 10.
I've been trying really hard to recuit new players from our town and I have some flyers posted in the bike shop in town. Always talking new new people and they always reply with the "That sounds really cool, I should check it out." but they don't show up.
I've posted a few times on Craigslist looking trying to stir up interest but still no luck.
I'm not sure what to do to attract new blood. I've gone so far as offering to bring all the gear (except for bikes) to some neighboring cities to provide a 'demo' and teach them the basics in hopes they will take it on themselves from then on.
I'm looking for ideas.
