Summer is the perfect time for exciting, once-in-a-lifetime sports adventures.
If you’re willing to share your story, we’ll be happy to write about it at The Times, if it’s something that we think can keep our loyal readers — online and in print — paying attention between high school sports seasons.
Sports adventures come in all shapes and sizes.
Are you crossing off sports bucket-list items?
Visiting the last on your list of all the MLB stadiums?
Hiking a 14er in Colorado or deep into the trails of the Grand Canyon?
What about your connection to a sports celebrity with a story that we can verify?
There’s no idea too silly to run by our staff. However, there are definitely stories we won’t tackle.
Some readers may be curious about what a former standout high school athlete from Hall County is doing these days. Some of these former prep stars are still chasing professional sports dreams, while others have taken up new, exciting recreational endeavors to fill the space athletic achievement once filled.
There’s also readers in our area who have interesting stories we’ve never been able to tell. Make our staff earn our paychecks this summer with a story to fill the front page of our print edition at www.gainesvilletimes.com.
The more stories, the better.
It’s 2019, so the more unusual the story idea, the more people will search for it and click online to read it — or maybe, just the headline.
Stories do need to be sports related. We have an entire staff of talented writers who tackle stories about crime, punishment and political issues.
