It's getting a little hectic around here. We are working on a story about Bally's plans for Chapter 11 and the lawsuit by one of its largest shareholders. Stuart is working on that story, and he's also putting together a review of the Club Industry East show that occurred earlier this month in Orlando. You'll see the blog entries from the show below (or click to the right on Club Industry East 2007 to just see the show-related entries).
Jennipher is working on a story about preventive care and how that part of health care is receiving greater attention from insurance companies, politicians and businesses--and what that could mean for the health club industry. If you want to comment about how you are working with businesses, health carriers or others to advance preventive care through rewards programs, incentives, partnerships or other programs, please use the comment button below to let us hear from you.
In addition, Top 100 forms continue to come in. We need to wrap this up quickly (I had hoped to have all forms in today) as we must finish inputting the data and tabulate the results as well as write an analysis of the story before deadline in about 10 working days. If you haven't sent in your Top 100 form yet, please do so ASAP. You can find the form here.
We're also sending out reminders about the Best of the Best contest. We started to receive our first entries, but also had requests for an extension to the deadline. Being a generous group, we decided to extend the deadline to June 27 so if you haven't started yet, you still have time to enter. The form for Best of the Best is here. -Pam
