Michael, we're working on trying to get some other events planned.  I'm also going to be making a push to everyone at the Milwaukee Atheist MeetUp Group, which we sponsor, to get out an interact more.  We are also working on getting a nationally recognized advocate (celebrity) to come in for a speaking engagement - more on that in the very near future.
