how many people attend ur shows?
We've gone as high as around 175 ( a show co-promoted in Gardner, Ma w/ the EWA) and a pathetic low of around 20 before in Milford, NH (which was our first show). It's pretty much the same way around for most small places. One of our biggest problems in getting up to speed is my lack of experience as a promoter. One time in Keene, I dumped about 350 dollars on radio ads and drew a lot worse than we had been doing. It was an expensive lesson to learn that radio ain't the answer. TV ads seem to help. A *&^%load of posters help. Sometimes newspaper ads help in certain towns. I'm hoping an web site w/ a very interactive promoter helps as well, hence my unveiled presence on this board.

FRW Fall Guy,
I believe that building a loyal following in each venue may be the key. The WFA in Dover was almost always between 125-150 and the majority could be seen month after month. A certain type of comradarie between the fans developed as well as between the Wrestlers, officials, and fans. I really believe there is a sense of loss and almost grieving that has gone on for some of the most ardent fans. I believe this website could actually help very much if folks begin to see it as a place to communicate, have fun, and exchange with the wrestlers occasionally (the last of which never happened at the WFA site). For fans in the Seacoast and some of the other WFA venues, the fact that you have added Alex Arion and Eddie Edwards could also bring over a number of fans to your product. Looking at your roster, it appears that you value colorful personalities. That is what many of us are looking for when we go to a show. I wish you the best.
