CORPS LAKES PRESS KIT

For the first time, Corps Recreation is developing a complete press kit for the Gateway, providing detailed information on the Corps history, the original purposes for developing Corps lakes, and the ways those lakes are being used now.

We want to

  • flesh out the press kit and bring it to life by providing some anecdotal information about the kinds of activities our visitors like to engage in at our lakes. What we need are the basic details regarding these activities.

  • create a dedicated section for activities in which writers describe the many ways visitors can engage in vigorous activities and exercise at the lakes. Stories about hiking, bicycling, swimming all help support that Corps lakes serve as a great environment to help Americans get into better shape.

  • portray Corps lakes as gathering places for groups. Events taking place around Corps lakes and hosted by Scouts, civic groups, religious groups, and other organizations help convey to the public that Corps lakes are also important hubs of social activity.

  • tell stories about the environmental interaction programs hosted by Corps rangers.

Please dont worry about the grammar or punctuation of anything written you may want to send us; our crack editor will help whip everything into shape. And please remember to include photographs that show people engaged in activities. We dont need photos of groups of people looking at the camera; we want photos that show people actually doing something. Dont forget to get photograph waivers from folks (http://ww w.dtic.mil/whs/directives/infomgt/forms/eforms/dd2830.pdf).

Think of some of the most interesting activities you have hosted at your lake: fishing tournaments, mountain bike races, sailing regattas, wildlife identification programs, conservation activities. Tell us about them in a brief note along with your contact information, and please remember to send photographs!

Please send your information to: CorpsLakes@usace.army.mil. Be sure to include your contact information. The person who sends the best photo will win a box of Leche Quemada candy from Kathy Perales!
