Yes, they copy and other stuff. Have good antivirus program. Check with Wordpress to learn to block various IP addresses and robots for Russian or Chinese search engines. One way is to create and upload an htaccess file where you can list addresses to either or allow or disallow. Many Utube tutorials on this or Google "htaccess" for mor info.

i have a question for all of you who have websites.   i have one and it is thru wordpress.   I also have where i can see who is looking at my site.   wondering if any of you have analytics.   the reason me asking is that i ck it on a weekly basis just to see who is looking and i noticed that a lot of hits are coming from Russia.  Most of my hits are coming from Russia.  Not getting any orders just lookers.  anyone else getting this response.  Was told Russia lookers are like china lookers.  (want to copy)

Re: Lyons. If I were i Colorado this weekend, I think I would have try the Lyons Arts Festival. The promoter was in contact and doing everything to make it a success, so I was going to do my part, but we are out of state this month, so can't do it. 
Hope some of you get a chance to walk the show and report. I'd love to see more opportunities in the state so we can stay home more often in the summer.

Richard you are right  the town is so small that if you blink you will miss it and yes i remember it got hit hard,  if i were coming from wa. i would stay home   too small, to get a large amount of people.  thanks

I have not done the show in Lyons. A potter I know may have done/be doing it. Steve, you are thinking of the show in Edwards, CO, Art on the Rockies which by all accounts, is one to avoid. Arts on  the Green is a new one in Lyons, one of the towns that got hit hard with the 2013 flooding. Its south of Estes Park. IMO it's a small town and not a real "destination" for tourists or Denver locals. It's just one of those places you go through to get to Estes Park. IMO.

is that the one at the college.  ck with richard sherer he did it and review was not so good.  or ck on back posts on this group site

Comment by Camryn Forrest on June 11, 2015 at 12:11pm

anyone in this group planning on trying Arts on the Green in Lyons, Colorado? I was going to give it a shot, but we are in Washington that weekend (Edmonds Arts Festival.) June 20-21
would love to hear a review at some pont.

Comment by steve appel on June 4, 2015 at 12:23pm

I agree with brian,  just apply  if you get in good for you, but it sounds to me like you guys are beating this to death.  if you make money fine if you don't forget the show.   just my opinion
