Hey.

I spoke to an individual who did free ad services for a large-scale event I
helped run a couple of years ago. He didn't charge for ad revenue, as he
made some money off the creation of ads for the company. Unfortunately he
will not be willing to do this anymore as his client list has grown in the
past few years and he no longer has the time. I've looked into other
companies but I'm drawing blanks so far.

See you guys (hear you guys?) at the meeting on the 28th!
