Here is something to wrap your head around..

A lot of us are restless. We're looking for something that's harder to find all the time: Places with a soul all their own. Cities that know what it means to be urban.

Our Hyperlink Promotion program! If you run a website in Michigan, add a button like this slate, make it a hyperlink with a caption stating that incentives are available. OR Consider using the MFO logo. You are on the front lines! Whenever someone hits your site they will learn about your services AND the opportunity for incentives. Spread the word that we are back in the game!


Shoot ANYWHERE in Michigan and get 40 to 42 percent back! Click the slate for details!
