Of course! (laughin'). No, not at all, Robert. We have a youth market and a 
care giver market that deserving of contemplation. It should be possible 
without a tremendous amout of work to cross reference spring break dates (grammar 
schools) with population density maps. The dates from a quick check showed then 
to range from about late March until early May for grammar schools.

Iris bloom is predictable within only a couple of weeks. If the projected 
bloom date is within' a week or so either way advantage comes from choosing one 
near school breaks for larger population densities.

Taking this a step further, if a collaboration is possible between the AIS 
(through affiliated clubs perhaps) and what are primary tourist destination 
sites in the general area, recriprocal promotion will be to mutual advantage. 
There are many people that have never heard of the Columbia River Gorge. As an 
organization seeking members we do not care if we are the primary or the 
secondary destination. Or even how long they visit though we might have a preferance. 
We just want to touch 'em. We seek the asset itself.
