Won't you take me to Picture Town. (I can hear this in my mind to the tune of Lipps, Inc. Funkytown).
Speaking of giving cameras away, Nikon gave 200 Nikon D40's to citizens of Georgetown, South Carolina, to take pictures and show how easy it is to take good pictures with their new camera. Not sure if they actually got to keep the camera, but if so, then I think it is time for them to come to picturesque Jefferson City, MO.
You might go to picturetown and see what they came up with.
