Subject: "Go on Safari"--O'Reily UG Program
Hello User Group Leader,

Due to the overwhelming success of our recent "Go On Safari" program,
we have decided to offer all of you User Group leaders another chance
to participate in this cool promotion for the O'Reilly Network Safari
Bookshelf. And once again, Tim O'Reilly will be the grand prize.

Here's how it works to "Go On Safari":

1-Post a Safari announcement
Post a "Go On Safari" banner ad on your user group web site, and/or run
an announcement for your members in a print or email newsletter or on
your email discussion list. The banner ads are available at the Safari
User Group Resource page at (After
you have completed this step, please send an email with the URL or copy
of the Safari announcement to

2-Pick a reviewer
A member of your user group (you or someone you designate) reviews
Safari. That person will get a free one-year subscription if they
publish a review of Safari within 60 days of opening their account. (It
can be published in your newsletter, on your website or email list, or
in another publication altogether; please send reviews to me.)

Once you've chosen your Safari reviewer, please send me an email
(, with the subject heading "Safari Subscription,"
listing your reviewer's name, address, email, and user group. If
someone other than your reviewer should receive the banner ad or
announcement text, please include that in your email. Your reviewer
will receive a Safari Welcome email containing their user name and
password within a week.

3-Have your members send in tips and tricks
We also have an introductory program just for user group members To enter, any of your members who
sign up for our Safari 14-day free trial email (including the official
reviewer) send comments on their experiences, or tips and tricks for
how they used Safari (it only needs to be 2 sentences long, but it may
be longer) to  
***Submitters should include your UG name in their email.***

4-Winners are picked weekly
Every week someone will be chosen from the tips or comments submitted
to receive fun stuff from O'Reilly (T-shirts, book bags, other
surprises). If a member of your user group is selected, your group
receives free gifts, too. Whatever the individual member receives, your
UG will get one, too, to give away at your next meeting, or use however
you see fit. Recipients--and their comments--will be announced in the
User Group Newsletter.

5-Win a visit from Tim O'Reilly
One lucky group will be selected for an on-site speaking visit from our
fearless leader, Tim O'Reilly (
