Media advisory: Little 500 media credentials form and information

EDITORS AND REPORTERS: Media credentials and infield passes are required for the 2003 Little 500 events: the Women's Little 500 Bicycle Race (Friday, April 25, at 4 p.m.) and the Men's Little 500 Bicycle Race (Saturday, April 26, at 2 p.m.).

Credentials and infield passes will be issued only to working members of the media. Please fill out the attached form for your organization (newspaper, radio station, television, etc.), listing, if possible, the names and assignments of those who will use the passes.

To secure credentials, complete and fax the attached form and a copy of your organizational letterhead to 812-855-7002. You can also mail the above to: Little 500 Credentials, Indiana University Office of Communications and Marketing, 530 E. Kirkwood Ave., Suite 201, Bloomington, IN 47408-4003.

The deadline for credential requests is noon on Thursday, April 24. We reserve the right to limit the number of passes issued to any one organization.

Media credentials can be picked up at the Office of Communications and Marketing (located in Carmichael Center at the corner of Kirkwood and Indiana avenues) on Thursday, April 24, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and until noon on Friday, April 25.

Afterward, credentials will only be available at Bill Armstrong Stadium on days of the Little 500 races in the 90 minutes prior to the race. The media credentials tent will be located in the parking lot of St. Paul's Catholic Center, 1413 E. 17th St., where media parking also will be available. You will need a copy of this completed credentials form or other media identification in order to park in this lot without charge. (Paid parking is available in other lots.)

This lot is adjacent to the south side of Armstrong Stadium, which should help electronic media organizations filing live reports from the races. This lot also is being used by handicapped fans, so please cooperate with parking personnel.

Only those who have submitted written requests will receive credentials. Please be prepared to show identification when you pick up the passes.

Thanks for your time and interest. We look forward to seeing you at race events.
