Am I the first?
« on: June 22, 2008, 06:15:30 PM »
I believe I may be the first Vermonter to join the boards.

I've only just begun, but I am inspired and I will go far.

If you are in the Vermont area and would like to help me learn, please contact me.

I'm going outside to practice my roll.

4th Vermonter? ha ha I'd say our small state is on it's way to greatness! I haven't done much parkour myself, I'm just starting, but I'd love to learn more.

    5th Vermonter!  I have only been doing parkour for a little while while I'm not in school.  I am slowly getting better.

Oh good, recent posts! Any chance of a few of us just picking a time and place and seeing where it leads? (Burlington would be preferable.)

Hey peoples, this is a copy of a post I just made on New England Parkour's Vermont forum...

Aloha,

I spent my winter injured, but the warming air has expedited my healing and I'm back into training intensely. I've advanced a couple steps past beginner and that should turn into a dozen or so steps by the end of this summer.

So I'm really interested in starting a Parkour community up here, so I wanted to let you know what's been going on and hopefully get some of you participating.

First I've been getting people together to run in Burlington every other week. We've found a couple nice playgrounds and a few nice spots to practice and we get together and have fun. It's not very serious yet, but it's definitely going to get there at some point.

Second I've started building a parkour training course at my house in Waterbury, which anybody is welcome to come train at anytime. I have an amazing river behind my house with awesome rock formations and downed trees all over the place that makes for an awesome course. I've just started adding ropes and sawing all the limbs off of the downed trees that run across the water. I've also started building small obstacles in the front yard to practice balance and precision jumping. As soon as I get the materials I'm going to set some beams and make a real parkour playground that is relatively tall and curves around the side and to the back of the house. Anyone who wants to contribute time, materials (think recycled playground... unused wood and building materials), or transportation of materials (pick up), would be hugely welcomed to use the training facility whenever.

Lastly I heard there was a parkour jam starting in front of Radiobean in Btown at 9pm on Wednesday nights but I called the number in response and no one ever called me back.

I am going to be doing Tuesday parkour evening jams/practices this summer. We will meet at my house for parkour and potluck dinner/fire sometimes, other times we will meet somewhere in MontP or Btown, and occasionally we'll probably meet up and head somewhere like smugglers notch.

anyone is invited to join any of this just send me a message either here or at zenmurphy@gmail.com

One love parkour peoples.

Hey guys, we should so get all of our addresses and hang out and jam. I live in Waterbury, Vermont and we need to find a good spot to jam. It's hard to do it where I live, but maybe we can do it it Burlington. We could start a group and everything and if we are really lucky. My address is 397 Kneeland Flats Trailer Park

I am sorry to post this so many months after the last post, but if anybody does get this, I am in need of some parkour/free running comrades in Vermont. There are none in my school so far as I know, and I have been asking a lot of people about it and they all are too cowardly to even practice with me. If there are any groups or teams in the state, I would like to know about it. Also I live way over to the east in Saint Johnsbury, so Burlington is quite a drive. Nice to know that there are some interested individuals on this side of the Atlantic, keep it crazy.

I have been around Burlington a few times.  I haven't really found that many good places.  i am interested in finding a good training partner to train with me and my friends.
