News Letter Story Guidelines
Stories revolve around personalities, and we would like to hear your story. Everyone is welcome at Fox Creek Leather regardless of creed, nationality, race, orientation or even how long you've been riding. We enjoy tales from newbies learning the ropes as well as stories built on thousands of miles of experience. Family-friendly www.foxcreekleather.com makes every effort to keep stories clean and friendly; however, some language might be considered offensive or unsuitable for persons younger than 18.
If you submit a story of 250 - 600 words and include at least four pictures of different locations related to your story with bikes and/or biking buddies in the pics, you are eligible for the $500 annual Author's Gift Certificate.
The Author's Gift Certificate is awarded in January for the previous year, and the winner is selected by popular vote on our Facebook page. We will alert customers and friends in our December newsletter when to watch for the vote and provide links to the vote.
