In Arizona, we were able to secure a sponsor (Chick-Fil-A) for our banner, so for this year we won't need a banner from national. However, next year may be a different story. If we have a national sponsor for banners next year, then count us in. I would then ask Chick-Fil-A to contribute in a differnt way. I want to keep Chick-Fil-A happy. Everything is a go for this year and I don't want to upset the apple cart, so to speak.
By the way, we are gettig our banner form Kinko's for $155. This is a good price compared to two other printers in the area. This price includes unlimited color which is important for proper sponsor logo transfer.
Hope that helps!
