    I just posted this on the football tab thread, too, but in case people are looking to participate in an exchange of the sections, I will gladly coordinate one once again.
    It sounds like a lot of newspapers still are committed to putting some substantial effort into these projects and it's always good to see what other people are doing to get some ideas.
    Papers of all shapes and sizes are welcome to participate.

    Send me about 12-18 copies of your sections and I will get 12-18 different sections sent back to you, provided that many people participate. (I will update here at SportsJournalists.com.) If you have fewer than 12, that's fine, I will still get some sent back out to you.
    Send me an address label, preferably sticky, so that I have a proper address to throw on the box.
    Send me a note via PM here, or email (tobyapse@yahoo.com) just to let me know if you're in.
    Let's go with a September 22 deadline, and I will effort to get them back in the mail in early October.

    Toby, I am curious: For a number of years, the six-day daily I string for did a tab. And then this year, they opted to spread out the stories over a two-week period. I had written two. Another paper in the area, my local daily, did the same thing. Are tabs going out-of-style, or do you think this is an experiment to see how the costs of one way vs. the other work out....?
