Back to Work

Well, spring break has ended, it's Monday, and the weather is rotten here in Oxford. (It actually snowed quite hard yesterday, leading to some great apocalyptic discussions in Sunday School). But to be honest, my mood is nothing like the poor guy at the left. It's actually good to get back in the office after some time off.

Some housecleaning from the recent Sports Summit in Cleveland... attendees voted on the new Summit Executive Council, and named Michael Butterworth of Bowling Green as Executive Director. Other committee members include Amy Crawford of Youngstown State, Paul Gullifor of Bradley, Karen Hartman of Ashland, and Lindsey Mean of Arizona State. The 2012 Summit takes place at Bradley University.

We also have a call to pass along. Leisure Studies, published by Routledge, intends to produce a set of Olympics themed special issues of several of their journals. It is intended that most, if not all, of the special issues will be launched together at the International Convention on Science, Education and Medicine in Sport (ICSEMIS) to be held in July 2012, shortly before the start of the London Olympic and Paralympic Games. The deadline is May 2011; please consult the website on format and submission guidelines. With all submissions include a note that the paper or research note is for consideration for the inclusion in the Olympic Games special issue. The issue will be published in July 2012 (Volume 31, Issue 3).
