A Message from Associate Publisher Alexander Hafizi
First, can I talk about what an epic cover we have this month? A real-life rock legend—none other than guitarist to the gods, Zakk Wylde. Zakk is a musician, actor, and long-time guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne, as well as founder of the heavy metal band Black Label Society. We had the opportunity to speak with him about the Black Label Society’s new record Grimmest Hits. Check out page 8 for the Q & A.
Our summer theme continues with our Fabulous Finds. Compiled by our advertisers and some great products we are able to review, we hope you find some great finds on page 32.

When i pick up and read elite Magazine I feel connected to the community which is one of the many reasons I have decided to advertise in elite Magazine. I am able to touch many different demographics. I love the format, how the ads and articles are presented. The topics are well written and easy to read. The staff are more than accommodating, helping me with everything from layout to color choice and logo presentation. They understand branding and how important it is. I have received many positive responses from my ads in the magazine and this is why I will continue to be a part of elite Magazine.

Good afternoon and thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
We had the pleasure of receiving our personal issues of the August/September 2016 Elite Magazine today in the mail and we are so excited. There has always been something special about Elite Magazine, and we can't believe that Cruise Planners is part of such an amazing issue. Kirsten's write-up, "Cruising Through Your Honeymoon," and your collaboration with her resulted in a perfect opportunity we are so glad we didn't miss. The supplement, the article, and the entire issue resonates and defines who we are as a company and what our business is built on, we call Cruisitude! We are so very pleased and look forward to future opportunities of advertising with your publication. Did we mention...we are also huge hockey fans!
Thank you, again!
