Tales From The Inbox - July 12, 2008



The inbox if full of interesting newsletters and other tidbits so its time to share again. Some of these events have appeared in the past but are worth another share:

Life Rolls On: There are three events for Life Rolls On in July here in Southern California. Next Saturday, July 19th is They Will Surf Again at Zuma Beach. This event is in conjunction with Nike and Hurley and is still in need of volunteers on land and in the water. Click here for more information. On Monday, July 21st the organization will have its annual LRO Golf Tournament at the Malibu Country Club. There is still plenty of time to get involved with this also. Click here to learn how. Finally, Life Rolls On is the official charity of the US Open of Surfing July 24-27. Volunteers are still needed for this event as well that takes place in Huntington Beach.

Women’s Professional Soccer: The WPS League has announced their post-Olympic timeline for player recruitment. The WPS teams will build rosters through allocations of the Women’s National Team, international player draft, combines, other League drafts, and local team tryouts. Check their website for the complete information.

Golf
: Global Golf has introduced the Carolina Golf Guide to find information on where to play and package deals in the Carolinas. Speaking of packages, the Coeur d’Alene Golf & Spa Resort has some great offers this time of year. The resort sits on Lake Coeur d’Alene in Northern Idaho just 31 miles east of Spokane, WA. This caught my eye since they are giving away a TaylorMade rescue hybrid with certain packages.

Baseball: The Dodgers are giving us gas? This is nothing new except this time it’s for the car. Gee, you’re so generous (sarcastic tone). At any rate, if you purchase a ticket to the July 27th game, you get a $10 gas card. Check out the details here. On Sunday, August 3 is the next Nomar’s Carne Asada Sunday. Nomar Garciaparra hosts this event after the game where you can hang out and eat some carne asada and perhaps get a pic with Nomar. Oh, and if you haven’t played with this yet – go here and make yourself a virtual bobblehead.

Tell me about it!

I wonder if free gas will get more people to go to Dodgers games! I'd love to catch a WPS game sometime.

It's funny - they don't really need to do anything to sell out Dodgers games. In spite of how bad they are, the stadium sets records all the time.

I think there's WPS in your area also! Or will be...

What soccer newsletters do you subscribe to? Some I subscribe to Chelsea FC, subside sports, and world soccer shop.

Now with RSS... the only reason I see the e-newsletters are for specials/discounts/ advance notification of special events.

Hi Monica -
I get RSS from your blog and then visit ESPN and the Barklay's site mostly. I get email from other specific leagues and media folks sporadically depending what is going on with them. I'm on some press lists as well and get info from the Homeless World Cup that way.
