Indian Ledge Park - Trumbull - August 29, 2010
« on: August 28, 2010, 06:19:32 AM »
So a few of us were discussing a jam in this thread: http://www.americanparkour.com/smf/index.php/topic,29004.0.html

I was exploring and found some land with a pretty long creek with loads of rocks, a cliff ranging from 30 feet in height to about 10, some mini islands (10ftx10ft?), and a small wooden bridge.

Sounds promising I guess, but I haven't found any time to train there yet. 

EDIT: That spot is extremely close to a pretty big wooden playground with railings, small wooden balance beams, a small sand pit, a few picnic tables, some big trees, soft grass, and a tiny water park with 4 or 5 fountains to cool off in if we get hot.  I have trained there and it's pretty awesome, thousands of oppurtunities.  It's got loads of different playthings that I haven't seen in any other playground.

As of right now we will be meeting at the playground in Indian Ledge Park in Trumbull at 3:00 PM on Sunday the 29th.  Here are the directions, just ignore the part that says "High school parking" on the second page.  The directions can be a bit confusing so feel free to ask questions.  The park is on Whitney Ave.

Oh and if your coming, maybe bring swimming trunks or a change of clothes, the fountains are pretty great and so tantalizing when you've been training for a long time haha.
I know it's short notice but it'd be cool if we could have one jam before the summers over.

EDIT: The formal address is 307 Indian Ledge Park Drive, if you have trouble finding it call my cell: 203-908-5854.  Call don't text, I don't have texting :P

Ooooo
I was supposed to train at my highschool with a few new guys, but this sounds too tantalizing to pass up!
I'll see if they can come too!
Of course I'll have to ask the 'rental units, and I warn you all to stay away from any roads, for I may be driving there ^v^
BUT for those people there, please don't let kendall over exert herself; it's supposed to be hot and humid and she is jsut getting over being sick =(

Sounds great though!

Unfortunately, I was sparring with one of my friends and my lens fell out, I then accidently stepped on it, splitting it in two pieces.

This normally wouldn't be a probably, however, my glasses are specially made because of the perscription. So, I have to pass this up. I can't really push my luck this time. Sorry, it sounds like an amazing spot. Have fun, be safe, and train hard.

Awesome jam guys, I'm glad Jake could make it!  We should definately do this more often, but maybe in a better location because a few people couldn't make it/had a hard time because it was so far away.  But hey it's a start for the CTPK community which makes me pretty happy!

Cya!

I was suggesting car pooling for Jams. I need to get my driver's license, but of course, it keeps getting delayed by extraneous factors.

Yeah, I have told Anthony repetitively to join and become more active on APK. He refuses... Meh. Odd things you find in forests.

I still believe that we should of had a 2 vs 2 sparring match between the group. That would have been fun.
