You can be the first...
I think it would be great if we had a District 38 communications Officer.....
Thank you Dave ... Exactly what I was trying to get at with the post!!diamond-dave wrote:You just happened to catch a copy between events is all, S&S Offroad does put things in there about out races but yes as D38 we maybe should advertise in there more about racing and schedules along with getting them articles/pics of our events. That could be discussed easily via email through the Comp Committee. It would be great if we did have a communications officer but at this time we do not as several do wear many hats and some items do fall out unfortunately with so much going on for all in their lives. I am not saying anyone is not doing their job or a bad job, I am only saying there is always room for improvement but at times finding that room is impossible with so many spread thin as it is.
Luke Kimball was trying to help out with this last year as a volunteer on Facebook and with sending things to S&S but with him not racing this too has become a void both in reports and on the course banging bars. I have friends that do this professionally for Dirt Rider, Dirt Bike and Motorcyclists Magazine but hard to get them to cover our races unless we have enough notice or a special event that we could try to pull them into as we need something to lure them down our way from the LA area. Since even as a profession most still need to maintain a 2nd job to cover the bills, so you can see many do have to wear many hats in life.
Since it is a tough thing to have someone do maybe spread it around and have an author of the month or author of an event submit an article. By doing this it could help the burden of availability and also get a chance for others to step up and help. We have the same thing when it comes to taking pictures at events. We have a lot of talented people that have supported D38 over the years but they basically are taking pics for free since not many are buying them. So those are tough costs to swallow to make it to all the events with no guarantee on a return on investment. Yes I know there is no film costs these days unless you print the data but the desert dirt and dust takes a toll on the fine equipment they use.
So we need people to team up, an article isn’t much good without pictures… Although clipping images out of some of Todd’s videos have created some great stills… As I’ve sat and worked some races it would be great to also cover things from not only on the course but at checkpoints and the things that go on there. We can make this happen just need people to step up… I wouldn’t mind doing one but my imagination isn’t as good or colorful as some of the other talented people we have out there… I am truly old and slow
Mark, I have a chair with your name on it on the course, I can bring an ice chest, camera and dictaphone
Anyone interested in stepping up for an event or 2? We have 6 more races this season in D38 and that actually means 8 motos with FT Desert Cross and RR Christmas Classic (solo/team) events.
