We want your installation stories: best installation, worst installation, most memorable installation, and so forth.
For several years, Floor Covering
Installer had a feature called the “Installation Excellence Awards,”
in which we showcased the diverse installation talents of our readers. Each
month, we randomly selected an installation and ran photos of it, along with
information about the installer and the installation. It was a popular feature
with our readers, and it was a very enjoyable section for us, as it allowed us
to get to know our readers better.
Unfortunately, we had to cancel it because we stopped
getting enough entries. Since that time, we’ve tried several other ways to
feature our readers, including the Installation Spotlight features we have run
from time to time.
This time, we’re trying something different: we want your
installation stories: best installation, worst installation, most memorable
installation, etc. If you have photos to go with your story, that’s even
better. The best stories will be selected by our staff and published in the
October issue of Floor Covering Installer.
Those stories that are chosen will be
rewarded with cash awards and various valuable prizes.
In case you’re concerned about your grammar and syntax,
don’t be; that’s our job. The only thing that matters to us is content, whether
the stories are interesting, funny, or moving. Just jot your ideas down on
screen or paper and get them to us, and we’ll take care of the rest.
So, what are waiting for? Grab a pencil, pen, or keyboard
and write your best installation-related story. You can mail, e-mail or fax
them to us at: Floor Covering
Installer, ATTN: John Moore, 22801 Ventura Blvd, Suite
115, Woodland Hills, CA 91364; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org;
fax: (818) 224-8042. All entries must be received no later than August 17,
This is your chance to get involved with our publication. We
look forward to reading your stories. Remember, Floor

opinions and input, so please feel free to send your comments, suggestions and
feedback to us at any time.
