Hotspots Contest - Maybe you missed it?
« on: June 05, 2008, 06:53:23 AM »
I'm guessing by the number of entries we have (0) that people missed the announcement, particularly the part that says we'll buy you a plane ticket and hotel room to come train at Primal Fitness! Yes, the winner will get a three day (or two day on their schedule) weekend at Primal Fitness training and jamming with the DC locals and possibly even some Tribe and Alliance members!

This is an awesome idea, Mark

A bit unrelated (a bit), but I know there are a lot of threads out there with people asking for good PK spots in their area/state

Maybe we could launch a thread where members add their favorite PK spots, and maybe a link on google maps or something. This could be a Locals Only, I personally would prefer something where everyone just came in and participated.

What are your thoughts?

I think our long term goal is to have a huge hotspot directory by state and city... We need lots of people to write up locations with pictures and stuff - hence the contest! Hopefully it'll spur people to write up hotspot articles because they can win a weekend at Primal for free !! ;D

What if you win and your parents won't let you go (for traceurs who are young)?

you can give your tickets to me!  Charging my camera battery now for a walk around the city...

By the way, where do we submit our pics/words/vids? Ozzi can't find a place either...

Guys - please submit your entries via email to m2@americanparkour.com - they can be word files or any kind of text file but in either case the images must be separate files, not just embedded.

If you win and your parents won't let you go then I save a lot of money :)

If the first place winner has to forfeit the prize then it goes to second place, etc. You may want to check with your parents first :)

Can I send images that are up from the Leave No Trace day? By that I mean the ones in the gallery.

yes, you can also use your photo gallery as a way to save photos for a new hotspot - that's a great place for hotspot photos and any pics you have that are Parkour / Freerunning related!

Cool thanks Mark, It'll probably be next week before I can get more photos. Hope this is still going :D

As with some of the original post responders I think it was an issue of where to send entries...now that we have a clear location (your personal email) i think the entries will be coming in. I know now I have to get my photos in order and some great action shots to boost my chances. Thanks for the update Mark and the swift kick in the ass to get things rolling!
No amount of training should ever outweigh your amount of belief.

Excellent, already have some nice entries (not many though) and I hope to see more people getting out and training at their favorite spots!!
