I'd like to see it come out on a specific date

Usually within the first week of the new month, but we're working on getting it out consistently on an exact day  ;)

I say somebody suggest pictures from away, since we're all so "far flung" as he said--Where would I send in my pics of Parkour in the Orient?
I decided not to put something deep here.  I'm in this for the physical aspect, the mental and spiritual are my own.

Send those pics to me!  Janine@americanparkour.com .  It would be great to have input from a community so far away.  Could you do a quick write up about the picture, and your community?  I'd love to include it as a feature for next month.

Also, to all the rest of you with your great ideas, thanks!  If you personally want to be involved in the writing of any of your suggestions, please shoot me an email!

<3 the feedback,
Janine

I think an article on dedication would be great. There are too many people out there that want the fun without the work. Parkour takes a lot of hard training to get good. Or at least to get it safely. I'm tired of hearing guys say that they want to train and get better, but then don't do anything. Too many people would rather play games than go out and work their butts off. Shoot, I would even write it myself.

Please do!  It sounds like you have something to say.  I'd love to read an article on your thoughts on dedication.  Send it my way by Friday and it might even make the next issue.

Do a story on a different Free running/Parkour group from all different areas, that would be pretty cool.

I'm thinking that since we already have the affiliate program, why not set it up with those that are willing to have a sort of "Local Update" section?

Here's the idea:

I'm from Wisconsin, and I want to see some of the stuff that's been going on in the area, so I get the magazine, turn to the section, and find a short write-up or article talking about the scene (maybe the latest hotspot) and what local traceurs/traceuses are doing. Maybe throw in some pictures, and a little "upcoming events" piece and you've got the section. Repeat for each affiliate and you've got a nice little chunk of the mag taken care of.

Hopefully, this can also encourage groups that aren't yet "affiliates" to be like, "Hey, I wanna see MY group in the magazine too!" Well, there's an opportunity for greater national cohesion of the community - something that should never be downplayed.
With great power, comes great responsibility.

i really liked the Traceur Tech idea; i know lots of people who want to build something to train/workout on just incase they cant go to a gym or it just being more convinient for them, like i have absolutely no acess to a gym to train at... its all in my back yard and i keep looking for ways to improve my 'home gym'... i also like the news on jams idea, alot of times i look for jams in my area and i find out about them by watching the video of what happened at the jam... meaning i missed it... which sucks for any traceur... just my input... is the FR out in print already? if so where can i order it? how much is it? if its not when will it be? thx :)
