With most organizations, the end of the year brings a brief time to reflect and review where the organization has been, and more importantly, where it's going.

In this issue of Sports Destination Management, we take that same approach and offer excellent insight into improving your events while looking at what works, the pitfalls to avoid, and how to stay on top.

Imagine what the coverage would have been had he made that hole-in-one at a special event with cruises and cash on the line?

While winning is usually the goal, everyone needs to leave the event with that sense of purpose and camaraderie that we glean from time together. That is one of the unique aspects of sport - at all levels.

Around here, the New Year brings forth a certain optimism where we all set out our objectives and slowly begin the process of perusing them. While these goals may vary in substance and importance, be they professional or personal, they all share one common trait - a timeline. Included in this annual rite of passage is the planning that goes into accomplishing those goals, specific with action plans.
