2015 ISC Attendees - Help spread the word about organized snowmobiling!
    The International Snowmobile Media Council (ISMC) and the International Snowmobile Tourism Council (ISTC) joined forces and prepared an easy-to-use press release template for ISC 2015 attendees.  The idea is for those who just returned from Niagara Falls, NY, to let their local newspapers know who attended and why!
    The press release is in a MS Word format and the user only needs to insert a little information and it is ready to go.
    Once the press release is tailored to you (and your family), go online to your local newspaper, find the e-mail address for submitting story ideas, and send it in.  It is also suggested if you have an event photo (such as your delegation's group photo), you forward it too.
    Click the buttons below for the press release template and example!
