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, there is a catch: to make the newsstand in time for your event, we need to get the info at least three months ahead of time. So if you want us to post your event info, we need time to do so.
