In case you missed the announcement, we are currently developing a new open water swimming race for 2011 to be held in the Great Salt Lake. Since the water typically warms up faster at GSL than other bodies of water in the Utah, we are shooting for a June race date. We have a rough website up right now that we will be updating as our plans solidify.
In an effort to spread the word and get people thinking about the race, we are holding a contest to design a logo for the new swim. The logo will be used on the event website, t-shirts and caps. The winner of the contest will win a free race entry to the event! If you aren't a graphic designer, feel free to enlist the help of friends and family who are. The Great Salt Lake has a lot of history as well as unique features (and creatures), so be creative!
All entries can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, if you have any ideas or suggestions for the new race, this is the perfect time to let us know what you would like to see. Leave a comment below or send me an email at email@example.com.
