Periodicals Hold Wealth of Information

Byline: Dick Weisz

Three excellent periodicals showcase 1998's fitness and recreational activities. Sports enthusiasts as well as event planners and directors will find these references very useful.

Competitive and noncompetitive activities are included, like running, walking, in-line skating, skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, rock and gravity climbing, aerobics, soccer, basketball, swimming and almost any, you-name-it, type of athletic pursuit.

The three mentioned below have motivational articles, how-to columns, sport and exercise equipment, nutritional and diet information, training and rehab information and much more.

The publications provide the services of listing upcoming events (by the particular sport) and the results and advertising for event managers.

Most of these magazines are available free at fitness or sport specialty stores, work-out centers, park districts or libraries. If you prefer direct mailing, a reasonable subscription rate is available.

The three publications are listed below.

- Windy City Sports magazine now comes out 12 times a year and usually is available the first week of the month. The magazine is a fitness and recreation guide that covers all sports (and I mean all sports), with many motivating, interesting and helpful articles and information.

"We call our February issue the "yearbook" or the "keeper," and with good reasons," said Jeff Banowetz, editor of the magazine. "It serves as a useful and handy reference for the entire year. It fits on a shelf like a thin phone book. If you are looking for information on your particular sport or you want to try a new activity, you should be able to find it in Windy City Sports."

If you want your race or event listed, get it in at least six weeks before you want it printed. The deadline for the February "yearbook" is Jan. 1. Send specifics to Jeff Banowetz, Editor, c/o Windy City Sports, 1450 W. Randolph St., Chicago, IL 60607. Include the name of the event, date and time, location, fee, contact name and phone number, awards and goodies (T-shirts, refreshments, etc.
