At the February 18 2018 meeting of the Jefferson Ruritan Club, the question arose about how much value this website had brought to the Jefferson Ruritan Club. Since the webmaster of the website had not been advised prior to the meeting that this would be discussed, the webmaster indicated that numbers would be provided in the near future. This is the “report” being provided here, on this website.
Provided below is a copy of the screen shot of some of the site statistics of this website that were taken today, March 7, 2014. If you want to see the image better, you can click on the “plus” sign in the upper right hand corner of the frame, and that will enlarge the image for you.
Essentially, the statistics show that since the website was created in June of 2013, there have been 2,063 views. During the 2013 fund-raising Turkey Shoot season, which was mostly October and November, the website was visited 342 times in October, and 435 times in November. Newcomers to the Turkey Shoot, when asked how they had heard about the Turkey Shoot, often said that they found out about it through this website.
The Turkey Shoot, which the club had considered abandoning in early 2013, due to lackluster performance in recent years, was voted by the club to be held in 2013 “one more time” with the thought that it would be heavily marketed through this website and other media not used in the past, and IF the Turkey Shoot performed well, the club would consider continuing to hold Turkey Shoots in the future.
Although the webmaster of this website does not have the exact figures to put on this website, the club has declared that the Turkey Shoot performed well enough to make plans to buy ammo for the next series of Friday Night Turkey Shoots later this year.
Although there is no proof that the existence of this website resulted in any new members joining the club, there IS proof that new Turkey Shoot competitors arrived because of the existence of this website, and this website is proud that it played a part in the preservation of the Jefferson Ruritan’s Annual Friday Night Turkey Shoots, and hopes that the Jeffersonton Community enjoys the fun of Turkey Shoots for decades to come!
