News Flash... every month we get a few emails from readers asking if we can list their poker run or bike show in the calendar. We always say ,"Yes, send over the info and we would be glad to." However, everyone seems to be sending their information within the same month as the event. Here's the catch-to make the newsstand in time for your event we need to get the info at least three months ahead of time. "Wait, what does that mean?" you ask? If you want us to post your event info, we need time to do so. Email any info to firstname.lastname@example.org.
