Title: Monsterous Minnesota National Jam 2010!
Post by: Chad Zwadlo (Zwadloc) on February 07, 2010, 09:48:00 PM
Hey guys, I want to set up our own National Jam this year like the Midwest Jam that we hosted last year.  The plan right now is to do it some time in August.  Let me know what you think.  There haven't been a lot of National Jams anounced yet for this summer and I'd like to get this one on the calendar early.

I would love to be part of this if possible.  I'm out of the country until the 16th of July, and I'm getting married on the weekend of Aug 6-8.  Not sure what/when our honeymoon plans are yet, but second half of August could be feasible.  I'd love to help organize if I'm around, now that I've done it once already.  :)

If all goes as plans, I will have an internship this summer in DC from June 1st till August 4th.  So after that should work for me just fine.  And we will stick with the name Monstrous Minnesota will stay. Good.

Oh sweet lord this would be awesome. All I'm doing this summer is working and parkour. Where do you plan to have the jam? At the U of M Coffman area? Yeah if this could get planned early, it'd give us more time to spread the word around about the national jam, and hopefully get traceurs from all over the country.

It'll probably be the U of M and the Pit on Saturday, the Organ and maybe downtown St. Paul on Sunday.

Don't count out Taylors Falls.  That was awesome!

I think the 3rd week of August sounds good.

And Taylor's Falls was awesome!

Post by: Chad Zwadlo (Zwadloc) on February 12, 2010, 08:45:19 PM
This has been up for about a week now and no one has objected to those dates, so pretty soon I'm going to make it official on the National Jams Calendar.  If you have any objections let them be known.

Just posted to the official 2010 national jam section so lets start some planning.  Let us know if you'll be able to host people at your house and help get people to jam locations.  Hopefully people will start posting on here if they are planning on coming from out of town.

I'll probably be able to host up to 5 or 6 people at my appartment.  Some of those positions are already filled.

Post by: Mooglocobo on February 16, 2010, 04:57:54 PM
I'm coming from Chicago, and I'll bet there will be at least 2-3 car full of people coming like last year.  Hopefully more.

Yes, Will definitely have to be there.

Post by: Harry Smith on February 21, 2010, 07:15:37 PM
I persuaded my parents to let me host a two or three guys, but they want them to all be under 18 (don't ask the best I could do.)

I can try to get down there. But I kind of got a little out of shape and sloppy over the winter so I'll need to haul some ass and get back in shape by then. But other wise it sound pretty kick ass, can't wait.

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.

Title: Re: Monsterous Minnesota National Jam 2010!
Post by: Anthony Phonis Serafano on March 15, 2010, 04:11:51 PM
Floor space is awesome!
Title: Re: Monsterous Minnesota National Jam 2010!
Post by: Skinny on March 15, 2010, 05:45:56 PM
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. 
Title: Re: Monsterous Minnesota National Jam 2010!
Post by: Ezio_Auditore on March 15, 2010, 06:51:22 PM
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!!

Post by: Skinny on May 04, 2010, 07:21:46 PM
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!

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?

Title: Re: Monsterous Minnesota National Jam 2010!

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.

Post by: Colby Zayne Gamache on June 10, 2010, 04:21:40 PM
alright, we definately have two people coming, with a possible third. I'm looking at greyhound and it takes me a day and 3 hours to get up there, lol.

Could we get some times on when everythings gunna start? that way i can try to schedule it to where i get there on the day of. or is someone willing to get us a place to stay for an extra day?

this will be our first national jam, so we're really looking forward to it

IF I can get work off on Saturday, I'll be driving up from central Iowa, along I-35.  I'd be happy to give anyone a ride along the way.

Can't get off work, CRAP!
