It happens every year, about this time… we’re seemingly overwhelmed by the last-minute influx of questions, requests, and mail all trying to meet our publication deadlines. Oh, the mail! Emails and stacks of physical letters pour in and we try and keep them straight. Often, event promoters send in both an email and a paper version of the same material, so twice the paper there. We register and deposit donation and advertising checks. Some promoters send in their event listings and send payments and donations under separate cover, leaving us to figure out what the payment covers; that’s fun. We sort and file listing materials. We sort and file display ad art — nearly all-electronic these days. And we look for and try and head off problems. It’s a scary time in the annual production process of the Ohio Bicycle Events Calendar but, so far, things always work out. Still… yikes!
