Yeah...Jam...August 21-22....I work. Haha but I will make some of you tell me how it goes, and someone had better have some footage of it!!
I am strong; I am fast; I am a traceur; Think you can out run me now? Sure, you use the obvious path, but I will use the fastest.
Obstacle? What obstacle?

Assuming I'm back from my honeymoon and can participate, I can also host.  I don't have a ton of money to feed people, but I have plenty of space, enough for a small army if many are willing to sleep on the floor.  The only trick now is convincing the misses.  I'll get back to you on that.

Train safe, play hard, and dream of flight.

Don't worry about out of towners sleeping on the floor.  Last year, I had a lot of couches and cots to offer but everyone slept in the living room crammed on the couches and floor.  By choice.

When I come down I'll probably need somewhere to crash.

SUP MNPK!

This is all preliminary but...I'll be moving there at the beginning of Aug. I should be living around downtown. I MAY be able to provide some sleeping space then. I will let you guys all know more as I am completely sure about my living arrangement. But I would like to throw my hat that ring as a possibility for some housing. I'll definitely be participating myself. See you guys then!!

Cool, good to have ya.  And this would probably be more appropriate in your other thread but eh, allow me to be the first to welcome you to the Minnesota scene.  It's a young one but it's been growing fast over the last few years.   

Now, has there been any other plans in the works for this?  Now that I know I'll be in the area I can get a bit more involved.  Also, I will be living at my parents house for the summer so I should have time to train (chad).  Also, I had mentioned this to them before and they were willing to help out however they could.  I told them it would be less work than last year so I can offer floor space too.  Possibly even BBQ space if we need, or we can do it some place else.  Whatever works, yo!

If you are in front of a wall that you cannot get passed, would you just keep banging your head into the wall?… No, you would find a new wall.

Sounds really cool.  I want to go but have no idea what to expect.  I'm pretty new and have been trying to get a group going in my city.   How do people know where to go...meet etc.  I'll be living in the suburbs of the cities this summer.  Could I sleep there and commute for the days?

There will be a place for you to crash for sure.  No worries about that

I have just purchased a futon.  This means my house will have four empty beds with hot/cold running water and electricity.  Two queens, two twins.  I also have a cot if needed.
And if the guests really traveled far, I will cook.

Please send me a personal message through the board if you are interested.
