Karting Summer Camp Gears Up Ready Set Drive August 7

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, July 31, 2017 – Nassau – Registration opens this week for the 5th annual EduKarting Summer Camp, two, one-week sessions beginning August 8 that allow young Bahamians to experience the speed and adrenaline-pumping excitement associated with the traditional sport that mixes thrills with  important life lessons.“Thanks to the continuing support from the FIA, our sponsors and the Ministry of Education which allows us to use the grounds of Doris Johnson High, we are able to keep our fees at $25 per camper per week, including lunch,” said Bahamas EduKarting founder and coordinator David McLaughlin.    “We wanted to keep fees reasonable so every young person who wants to participate, regardless of financial status, can take part in the camp designed to teach the values of self-discipline and teamwork.    And the best part is students are learning useful skills while having a great time zipping around the course in a kart they have taken apart and rebuilt.”    Most importantly, said McLaughlin, beyond the basics of mechanics, campers learn what it takes to make a team of people who never knew each other before perform.    “There is art, design, public relations and marketing,” he says.    “Each team has to create a business plan, present and ‘sell’ it to a sponsor who provides virtual funding for uniforms, helmets, tires and parts.”“Nearly every famous Formula One or NASCAR racer got his or her start in karting, said McLaughlin, Bahamas and Caribbean Motor Sport Development Director of FIA, the motor sports association under the auspices of the International Olympics Committee.    “Who knows?   The Bahamas, which has produced great athletes in track and field, basketball, tennis and swimming, may one day produce a great race car driver.   Look at Lewis Hamilton of Grenada and the U.K. who got his first go-kart at the age of six and showed so much promise by the time he was a teen that his father gave up his career and sometimes worked as many as three jobs to support his son’s ambition in motor sport.    Today, he is the most famous Formula One driver alive.”Each EduKarting summer camp is open to a maximum of 30 participants ages 11-17. Sessions run August 8 – 11 and August 14-18 from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm at Doris Johnson High on Prince Charles Drive.    Sponsors include Caribbean Bottling and Aquapure, both of whom provide beverages daily. Other partners and sponsors include the Ministry of Education, Science & Technology, Julius Bar, Rotary Club of East Nassau, Rotaract, Bahamas Waste, Diane Phillips & Associates, Oasis Furniture, Valvoline, Battery & Tyre and the FIA.“We have seen high school students come out of school and immediately into a job because of the skills they learned in EduKarting,” said McLaughlin. “Two of them are working for a large auto dealer now in the service division and another has gone on to become a pilot.”To register, call 432-1845, 815-8907, email edukartingbahamas@gmail.com or go to the EduKarting Facebook page.Release: DPA Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Rodale Shuts Down Its Content Marketing Group

first_img The decision to dissolve the group comes a month after it was announced that company president Scott Schulman would be stepping down and that Maria Rodale was returning to a more active role running the company. Rodale Grow, the custom content agency at Rodale, was shut down last week, sources tell Folio:. The decision is surprising given the resources publishers in general have put behind their marketing services divisions. It’s unclear whether Rodale plans to relaunch some kind of marketing services division or shift the business to the brand level, but there doesn’t appear to be any formal plans going forward.  The remaining active clients, including Johns Hopkins, Sodexo and Whole Foods, were notified that same week that they’d need to take their business to a new firm.  The source says Rodale Grow’s business had been going in the wrong direction for at least a couple years and that new business development had all but dried up, although there were plans being put into place to turn that around. center_img A spokesperson provided this statement: “As we continue to transform from publisher to healthy living company, we made a strategic decision to focus on our core business and new areas of growth.” At the Content Council’s Pearl Awards this month, Rodale Grow took home three awards: a gold, two silvers and a bronze. Initial word of the shutdown was passed to group executives on Monday, November 9. By the following Wednesday, at least six staffers from the business and marketing side of the operation were let go, according to sources. Although one source says there were likely more cuts, but couldn’t say exactly how many due to the overlapping nature of responsibilities on the content and creative side. last_img read more
