Record entry for Granite City Rally? It looks like we’ve all been mis-informed about this weekend’s Granite City Rally. It seems as though there has been a last minute rush of entries!
Earlier today I received a Press Release, but not from the rally organisers or sponsors. Honest, this is an actual quote from the full page Press Release issued by a professional PR person:
“ Over 300 cars taking part in the event on Saturday, April 26 will be lined up at the Thistle Hotel Aberdeen Altens, which is being used as the start for the first stage of the rally.”
I’ll save the author’s blushes by not mentioning any names, but a wee bit more research might have been in order before committing finger tip to keyboard.
Mind you, it set me thinking. Is that what ‘normal’ folk think when you mention a rally to them? Is this a sign that our sport doesn’t do enough to publicise and promote itself.
On the other hand, maybe my stuff ain’t so bad after all!
