Getting the new brand on the streets.

Rebrand and what the club are they doing to get this club and it's new name (brand)out there on to the streets.
We hear lots of talk about involving the community but whilst that is good it is also, to be honest, on a rather small scale.
I've said before and I'll say it again why the club and or the rest of Bristol sport do not take advantage of some of the local festivals is beyond me.
Harbour festival 250,000 expected
Balloon festival 250,000 expected.
Weston air show and armed forces weekend. 200,000.
That's there quarters of a million people just for those three then theres events like the
Portishead soap box race maybe 10,000. Thornbury fare etc The list goes on and on. Bristol Rugby/ Bears call them what you will, attended How many shows and festivals ?
Interacted with how many people??
Took part in?
Sold how much kit? not that they had any to sell.
That is not good business. to my mind, that's a massive wasted opportunity.

To be honest, I would rather they spent their time training in preparation for this coming season.

Also, are there really 250,000 people expected to attend the Balloon fiesta and Harbour festival?

Yes. If the weather is good, then people come from all over the country. Personally, I avoid the balloon fiesta as Bedminster/Ashton/Hotwells becomes a giant car park.



Supporting Bristol since... since... Oh, not enough fingers.

Agree with the first poster

You don't even need player involvement....just billboards are certain locations (temple Meads, Bristol Airport, etc) would be start.

The biggest thing though, the lack of kit. A gilt-edged opportunity to get hundreds of people being walking billboards, and the shop is still woefully understocked.

Exactly thousands of bear cubs shouldíve been wearing their shirts all summer.as well as some old grizzlies. The club havenít even had the excuse of being delayed due to the playoffs. Shocking in my opinion.
That said Iím liking the last two media releases. That is on the right track but we need more, much more. It take but a little thought to see where.
By the way that is not me being negative itís me wanting the club to
Wake up to whatís needed to push the bears forward.

I'm sure someone posted a huge billboard at Temple Meads when the rebrand was launched.

I believe that's true but it needs to be on ongoing process.
