Workshop & Luau Registration Continues.

Registration for the Nov. 1- 2 Sports Shooter Workshop & Luau 2002 is still open … for the time being.

After 65 slots were filled within hours of the launch of the workshop's registration site, Nikon and Sports Shooter made the decision to move the event to bigger venue. Plans were changed again, when the number of people registered passed 100 after just 4 days.

Sports Shooter is happy to announce that the workshop is negotiating with a hotel that will have plenty of space to handle the general sessions and the numerous breakout sessions.

News of the new Workshop & Luau home will be announced shortly.

"Everyone will be blown away with the news of where we will be holding the Workshop & Luau," said organizer Bert Hanashiro, "I can only say this --- think one word: Beach!"

The Workshop & Luau also recently announced that multi-award winning photographer Wally Skalij has jointed the line-up of speakers. He joins Sports Illustrated's Peter Read Miller and Robert Beck as the event's featured speakers.

"Our principle sponsor Nikon has been wonderful in agreeing to move the workshop," Hanashiro said, " They have been spending the past week looking for a place that can hold over 160 people and be in a place that is close to transportation, restaurants, shops and other cool places. Everyone will be very happy when we announce our new location."

Photographers and students can sign up for the Sports Shooter Workshop & Luau on the new web site. Full-time students and interns are free and there in a nominal fee for working professionals.

"Though we are moving the event to a much larger facility," Hanashiro said, "We won't have an unlimited number of spots. We have increased our capacity over double from last year, but we still want to maintain an intimate atmosphere and keep the breakout session numbers low. So if you're planning on attending the coolest photography event of the year, you'd better register soon."

Baseball Weekly Becomes Sports Weekly.

USA Today Baseball Weekly will change it's name to Sports Weekly and begin covering professional football.

The 11-year-old publication adding football coverage appears to be a hedge against the threat of a baseball work stoppage.

"Hopefully we'll never have an off-season again,"publisher and executive editor Lee Ivory told the AP. "When baseball season was over, we were always sucking wind to keep things fresh and to keep people buying us."

Ivory also said that the name change gives the publication flexibility for the future, though there are no immediate plans to add coverage of any other sports.

Baseball Weekly has a circulation of about 250,000 and is owned by USA Today's parent company, Gannett.
