Next National Jam
« on: January 04, 2010, 06:40:04 PM »
Hey guys, I live in Florida, but because my Dad has a friend up in Denver we could stay with, I was gonna try to get to the next big jam. I will admit I'm not an amazing traceur, but i can do quite a bit, so i wanted to go just for the teaching and the experience. It would be awesome if i could get estimate dates.Thanks.

The past 3 have been in early August but we haven't officially set anything for this year yet.

Where in Florida do you live?  There are a good deal of experienced practitioners around Florida that I'm sure can give you a hand with training.  Post up on the Florida message boards.

I went to the Colorado National Jam 2 years ago and it was a very valuable experience.  You'll have a great time if you go, but don't neglect the resources you have in your own backyard.  There was a large jam in Orlando just a week ago.

When faced with the stress of a life-threatening engagement, we don't rise to the occasion, we descend to our level of training.

Yeah Tom, I've been talking to Daniel Arroyo and am planning to go to the parkour classes he is hosting this week. I don't have a car so getting a ride to Orlando isn't easy. I live in the Sarasota area (about an hour south of Tampa and 3 hours from Miami and 2 hours from Orlando) so its not super convenient to go to those places

Understandable.  I just wanted to make sure you knew about the parkour community in Florida.

This year I am definitely hitting up some sort of National Jam, I live in Arkansas, I drove from DC back home in one stretch once, so driving is not a problem.

I hear and see alot from Colorado, and think it would be a great place for a great Jam.
