    • Hawaii Parkour

 We will try to collect peoples email so that we can set up a mailing list for future events. Maybe an open note book for comments.

For that day we should have;

A cooler with water. I can bring some, if others bring more we will guaranty to all have water.
Snacks to share. Focusing on light ready quick type (Bananas, energy bars, grapes etc)
Small Table.
Music Box...

We will be setting ourselves with.

 1 wooden vaulting box box 43" "The Tank" a little high for beginner but great to increase challenge and to learn on.
 3 pairs of pipe precision trainers. Plan on working on 3 set made from 2x4 for different difficult level.
 1 5x6 mat.
 1 mini trampoline about 2ft in diameter.
 
We also have access to

 3 pairs of wooden boxes
 -  1 pair is 8" tall, about 1ft in diameter.
 -  1 pair of 12" tall, about 1ft in diameter .
 -  1 pair of 16" tall, about 1ft in diameter.


 1 trapezoid shaped soft vaulting box. Great for beginners. Perfect for very young kids and more mature adult. It consist in the pieces, quite soft, that can be use for other drills.
 1 pair of 4x8" with bases for balance and precisions.
 1 pair of 2x5 mats.

 We will try to set a table with info flyers (PK history, training benefit [physical and mental], website. Performance, training consulting etc) If we find a way to hook up a TV playing PK videos on the table that will also be going on.  I will be bringing some of the HIpk shirts I got left as well.

What we need.

Participation from the community.

- We are all going to be responsible to represent parkour positively and properly.
- Weather youre just participating as a training traceur or taking part in welcoming people in, remember to stay polite and keep it safe.
- Let's all exhibit a friendly and welcoming environment like we always do, the support, the camaraderie between all of us, the equality regardless of skill level. We have enough stuff to set different areas where we can all play. If you have our HIpk shirt this is the day you really wanna wear it, if you dont have it.. well, I am not going to make cheap ad out of this, but yeah, you might wanna buy a shirt now   ::)
- We will need everyone support on promoting this not as an event but as a expression of movement that will take place. We can use myspace, facebook or whatever else you think might help.

 Volunteers

- As of now we only know of one person who has a truck to help bring the stuff. If that person cant that would mean the whole thing has to be canceled. So we need someone else with a truck to helps us out.
- People to help us set up and clean up.

 This is going to be a great opportunity for all of us. So lets get it going, remember HIpk needs your support.
