Adding A New News / Event

For most all of these fields  the purpose is clear. I’ll list all of them and expand upon those that  may be confusing for users.

General Information

  • Event Type -  There are three types of  events: Public, Private, and  Race.

  • Start/End date - This tells the potential attendees or  readers when the event will be occurring or when the news  being written about occured.

  • Description -  This is just meant to  have a brief description of the  News or Event.

Location information

  • Location Name  

  • Location URL

  • Address 1 and 2

  • Postal Code

  • City

  • State

  • Phone number

Event Detail Description

  • Description (Caption) -  This is like the heading of the news.

  • News Source - If there’s a  URL or perhaps a article in the  paper this is where you’d list it as a source.

  • Description - If it  is news the bulk of it will be written  here as would the in depth event description.
