Thanks to a request from zinester-extraordinaire, China Martens, i have created a flyer that can be handed out to promote our distro. i'm trying to figure out how to get it into a pdf file that you can open and print, but until then anyone who is interested can email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and i'll be happy to send it as an attachment to you. i have it set up two to an 8 1/2 x 11 page.
ETA: thanks to Mai'a, we now have a Google Doc image of the flyer (as i said, it's 2 to the page) that you can access here. If for any reason you can't access it or just prefer email, feel free to let me know (as above) and i can still send you an attachment of it.
