Getting anyone else to jump up and head out seems to be an often discussed option that never materializes. Add a fee and they seems to never "find the time" to get out there. Make it free and you can bust 'em in the chops come Monday - Hey, where WHERE YOU??? No excuses. LOL.

Sort of like making that first hit free, once you get them out there to see what is going on, then you get them a ride with an instructor - addicted for life after that. YMMV.

Excellent point. I was thinking the same thing.
