    Two for the price of one - that is a heck of a good deal!

    Does "mother" include spouse as well as your own mother? Presume only one per paying customer.

    Bring any lady of your choosing....how about that? Future mom, potential mom, your mom, the mother of your children, your sister, your neighbor. One "mom" gets a free class with each accompanying paid registration.

    The free class does not include any of the associated permit or application fees.

    Since you are from 'the north'... I'd bet that 'Mr Moms' are even welcome!!

    Kidding aside, thats a great promo! I already have a commitment for a family day at my Mothers, or I would have tried to bring my Mrs down.

    Thank you. I thought it was a great promo too. So great in fact, that within an hour of posting it on our facebook page, a competitor not only copied the idea, but stole the exact wording and passed it off as his own!

    OMG! Well.... the other company may issue 'training certificates'.... but I highly doubt that they are a 'competitor', or even in the same league as your group!

    That does suck though....

    Old cliché, but still true: Imitation is the highest form of flattery.

    The word "imitation" provides an interesting double entandre = it ain't the real thing.

    If ProShooter's "advertisement" was copied word for word, copyright laws might apply - not stirring, just thinking.

    Can imagine the furor if Ford had infringed on Chevrolet with "See the USA in your Ford today."

    I don't think that it rises to the level of a copyright issue, because they switched around enough words to make it pass. If you read the 2 ads though, you can see that one was copied from the other....

    It still shows they're trying to play catch up
