Hey all,
I am a traceur from Seattle, WA planning a trip to your area from October 12 through October 25th. I've been looking into the parkour scene in Minneapolis/St. Paul and Eden Prairie area (where i'll be staying) which sounds pretty active. I'm looking forward to meeting as many local traceurs to the area and do some 'hardcore parkour'!!!

Please let me know when/where whatever scheduled jams will be going on while i'm there and if any of you may be interested to get together for an impromptu session(s). On a scale from 1 to 10 (David Bell as a 10 and Steve Carell being a 1) I would say that i'm a 3 possibly a 4 on a good day : ) Cheers!

intresting,  lol  but most people  who guess my age   usually thought i was like 17-19
so  maybe that might be a advantage.

No, you do not have to be a student to be on the property.  It is a state school and therefore open to everyone to use/be on.  They do however have the right to ask whomever they want to leave the campus property.  So as always, be respectful and you shouldn't have any problems

I suggested this in the Fall Jams thread, but its better suited here: Take a picture of where the common meeting places are and attach it to the first post.

West Hills, the old orphanage, in owatonna minnesota is a great hotspot. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1n2UopnewRY this is a fun vid that my frend chris and i made. it doesnt show all the spots there, but it has a few.The place is perfect. There are like little training spots scattered throughout the campus. one of the best areas is the spot that is at 0:19 in the vid. u gotta pause it cuz it goes by fast lol. The only catch is that u gotta go on weekends cuz on weekdays the place is packed. we have tried to train there on weekdays, but got kicked off.

For anybody in the Eagan area, I would strongly recommend the dakota county public library! it's great! it has a wide range of obstacles that can be used for all types of training!

if you wear a pair of light padded windbreaker pants, the snow makes a great cushioning for flips off of stuff. it's great for those certain flips you want to perfect!

No so good with all this snow but here are afew places I've been.

Coon Rapids - Coon Creek Park

Elk River - Lion's Park (or so I've heard that's what it's called since I never read the sign) It also has a skate park that me and my friends used to run on and also gym equpiment around a running track. Like parellel bars and what-not)

Princeton - Mark Park, Princeton South & North Elementary Schools. Also the middle school is a ground level building so it's easy to wall climb upon. It also has a wall to hide the truck ramp that's pretty thick and it's a foot away from the wall of the school. I once did afew kartwheels through the space. Scary as hell trying not to get stuck but I always had fun running there.

Cops are a b***h at the scools though. Not so tough at the parks.

Egan - Gleason's gymnasium. Twelve dollars for afew hours but it's indoors and they have alot of equipment to use. Also have instructors. Check their website for their open gym hours.
