Get Ad Space in the Florida Cup Brochure

Sarasota BMX is selling ads for a Brochure that they are putting together for the Florida Cup Series Championship on May 16-18. The brochure will be given to all riders at the race. We are selling ads in order to raise money to off set the cost of the Awards Ceremony which will be held on May 18th at the Robarts Arena. In order to keep the ticket cost ($3) down we will raise money to help pay for the use of the arena.

Cheri Morris has volunteered to do this for the track but she needs everyone's help. She will need several volunteers to walk around at the track to sell ads and also at the Okeeheelee Qualifier. The ads are $5 to $10 for a shout out to your rider or $25 for a Business size ad. Plus half page ads are $125 and full page is $250. This brochure will include info about the weekend, schedule, Pro Bios, etc. Please help us out. You can inquire on this at registration also. Anyone can buy an ad, you do not have to be from the Sarasota Track to be included.

Thank you in advance for your support.
