July 2009 – Editor’s Note


Did you notice the name change on our cover? This summer we’ve become Outdoor Sports Guide and though the name is new, we’ll still be providing you with the same great articles, news and event listings as before. We’ll also be adding new columns, more giveaways and introducing more themed issues.

This is our first ever green issue and it’s all about reducing your impact on the earth and supporting eco-friendly initiatives. You can make a big difference by making little changes in your life like eliminating junk mail (pg. 7), buying green gear (pg. 10) and purifying your own water instead of buying bottled (pg. 30). How do you reduce your footprint? Send your green living tips to editor@sportsguidemag.com. We’ll publish our favorites on Outdoor Sports Guide’s new website at sportsguidemag.com.

This website just launched and there you’ll find extra articles, gear reviews, giveaways, our blog, an e-version of the magazine, a local event calendar and more. If you’re an event organizer you’ll love the new calendar; it allows you easily add your events to our site for free! Enjoy, and please let us know what you think.
