1. SLSA Sponsor New Additional Benefit

This Season SLSA Sponsors will receive a new benefit for their continued and generous support that allows us to keep running fun and successful competitions.
The SLSA is pleased to announce that SLSA Sponsors will now be able to direct-market to the entire (900 plus) SLSA group a number of times per month, based on their level of sponsorship as follows.
* Gold Sponsors twice per month
* Silver Sponsors once per month
* Bronze Sponsors once every 2 months
Messages will be submitted to the Sponsor Manager, who will then send them to the group using the SLSA's Postmaster Messaging Gadget. Messages can include a notecard, landmark, object, texture or any combination of these. The Postmaster system sends messages when people are online to ensure delivery, and each Sponsor Message will be queued for 24 hours, to target members coming on line, after 24 hours, the remaining unsent messages will be sent as offline messages.
Because the messages will be sent via the SLSA Sponsor Messaging system, members may choose to opt out of receiving messages; however, we would encourage all members to take the time to support our generous sponsors.
Messages will also be posted to the SLSA Facebook page and tweeted through the two SLSA Twitter Channels.

2. SLSA Booster Program, for Individual and Team Sponsors

In addition to our existing commercial sponsorship levels, Individuals and Teams are able to sponsor the SLSA season, with the new “SLSA Booster” program.
