Attention: Board of Directors, MIT
We are working on the 2012 “season opener” edition of the Amateur Sports News for Manitoba. This paper is provided in local communities free of charge, and is designed to give recognition and encouragement to athletes, coaches, parents, etc. It covers ALL amateur sports, including cycling, gymnastics, soccer, lacrosse, baseball, rowing, martial arts, swimming, golf, etc. You may have seen our papers in your local arenas and recreation centers.
It would be GREAT to include a write up on “Mennonites in Tights” for this issue! This is a wonderful opportunity to submit news and photos about activities, and to promote cycling and your club in particular. You can write about anything you wish.
Ideas for content include information about the history of your club, past or upcoming special events, rides and races, any programs you run, accomplishments and awards received, who can/how to join, and it’s also a great way to recruit volunteers and sponsors. Pictures are always welcome too! A picture can be worth a thousand words ….
There is NO COST to have an article published – just the time it takes to send it to us via email, Canada Post, or even by fax! As for the word-count, we have found the average to be about 600-700 words and 6 or 7 photos; however, there is no actual criteria on how long or short it must be – we just encourage you to write and submit whatever you are comfortable with.
It is best if your write up is in MSWord format or even directly in the body of an email. However, please DO NOT include photos and logos in a Word document, since photographs and logos must be high resolution (minimum of 300 dpi) and .jpg format. Upon publication, we would be happy to send you free copies of the paper featuring your article.
The FINAL deadline for news and photo submissions for this issue is June 3, 2012. The papers will be distributed in Steinbach and throughout Manitoba soon after June 29. If you have any questions at all, or would like more information, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Looking forward to hearing from you!
