Seeking new header images

It’s been several years since any new images have been added to the website. If anyone has any they’d like to have highlighted, please email to webmaster. They must be at least 1200 pixels wide and should be croppable to the shape of the header images, three times as wide as tall, losing the top and bottom. It would be nice to get some of Timberlake and Avon Regionals and our new young stars.

In case you are not aware, although pictures are mostly randomly displayed, they can also be assigned to a page, so I will choose the best ones submitted for the header of each of the records pages that I just updated.

Please don’t overwhelm me. Send me your best.
