Louisiana Jam
« on: August 24, 2011, 10:07:59 AM »
So i have been thinking of trying to get a statewide jam together.  Does anybody have any ideas where they would like it to be? like where would be the best location for everyone to meet and have a good time?
Do or Do not. There is no try.

Who: The New Orleans Parkour and Free Running community would like to volunteer to host this event.

Where: Here in New Orleans we have 2 excellent locations to trick and trace that are adjacent to each other (University of New Orleans and Ponchartrain Beach).

When: If we hosted this, it would need to be on a Sunday (any Sunday is available, since we meet every Sunday already) when campus is empty to null the chances of someone complaining to campus police.  Otherwise, as long as there is no one causing us any grief, security does not mind what we do.  So long as it is organized and not a wide-spread, gladiator-streamed obstacle course, we will be free to play and practice.  As for the beach, we are free to do whatever however whenever.

Why: Why not...?

It may even be possible to have some of our professional stuntmen to help moderate this if we give them a long enough heads-up.

This might be a good event for me to get started with. Would this still be possible to have?

Maybe Louisiana Tech, because no offense to the lower part of the state, it seems to be more accepted down south, because it's like a rarity of traceurs(eses) that are willing to try to come to Central or Northeast part of the state. As far as the place, I'm currently trying to get the more okay with the police and map out when and where we can train here.

But NOPK has a great Idea!! I'll be down for that.

Shreveport Pk is down for wherever. Let us know and we'll be there.

Also, if we cant figure out a spot, Shreveport's got 3 "decent" run-able spots, all within about a mile of each other.

Did anything ever come of this?
We don't have any good spots in Lake Charles, but we would definitely come to a LA jam. I would really like to see this happen.

Only Three spots?!   I'm surprised by that statement.  :o  Considering how big Sherveport is, it should be more.

There are like seven spots here in Ruston, and 4 of which are on LA Tech Campus.

I'd love to see this happen. I've been practicing parkour-free running for years and have always wanted to find more traceur/euses, free runners, trickers, anyody really, in Louisiana. I live in the country but I go to Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond. I cant say there are any "good" spots around here but I'd be willing to try to get my guys to any jam in the southern/southeastern part of the state.

Well, I've moved back to Lafayette so I'm still looking to do this. There are a couple runners here that I know would love to join in on a State Jam. I've heard that Baton Rouge has a decent scene and a multitude of spots. We should definitely start looking into this since the summer is coming up.
