    What goes in yours, if you have one at your paper?

    What should go in it? What shouldn't? What should go in the sports section that often gets shuffled to the outdoors? And what are other ways of improving these sections?
  2. Ours is a lot different from most places, but we have 11 pages a week. Every day we have at least one page, and it's not really like Field & Stream. We are in one of the biggest areas for outdoor recreation, and we do cycling, climbing, running, triathlon, alt rec and usually something special for Sunday. We have a theme for each day, like cycling for Monday and running for Tuesday, etc. We also try to run a product feature every day, like a neat GPS tool or a tent. We run price, quick info and where in town you can buy it. A lot of first-person stuff and how-to as well. If you need any more help, you can certainly send me a message. Good luck.
