Camp / Clinic Advertisement
The Head Men's Soccer Coach at Ocean State University (OSU) has begun preparations for his summer camps. Because this was his first year as head coach at OSU, he wants to use a lot of advertising to boost attendance. Is it permissible for the coach to use multiple forms of advertising?
