I'm glad to see you all had fun and can't wait to read the whole sum up and see some of the pics etc.

Woot, first to post! We got back around 6am, slept for a handful of hours, then set out to film our stuff, which (as far as I know) we finished :p

Nem, thanks a lot for a great time, it was cool to meet a bunch of new people along with hanging out with my boys from the Midwest :D If we ever make it up again, perhaps we can make it at the end of 8 hours of sleep rather than 13 hours of driving...otherwise keep it up MI cats! I'm off to pass out!  :-\

Yup gear, i just got back in with my video camera. all done, now to edit, and then nap my ass off.

Thanks a lot to the people that showed up for the jam! Nem, nem's parents and aunt for feeding the crap out of us, thank you soooo much for that hospitality!

It was a long, long drive back, and a short, short nap before we went right at it again, but it was worth it!

Thanks so much to our MI buds. That was a blast!
Thanks especiallyto Nem for hosting, Nem's folks for hosting, and of course "Aunty Nem" (Nancy) for having us all stay at her place!! Totally above and beyond the call of duty, she starts grilling chicken breasts at 3 am when we got there, unbelievable!!

Wish it was a little warmer, but we hit some great spots, and had a total blast!

It's been a VERY long weekend. So glad I finally got to meet so many people that I've only heard from on forums, real life is where it's at!!

It was very awesome, and frosti made the front page! woo! But unfortunately Sunday was beautiful ALL DAY. If only if only.

But that won't get me down, I've learned some great stuff at my first jam, even if I wasn't exactly on my best behaviour.

Sweet Jam everyone!  It was so nice to finally meet Skipper, Akh, and Gear.  Thanks a lot for hosting Nem!  Al thou it was a bit cold and windy, the vibe and humor of everyone being together outweighed that.  Too bad we couldn't go to a few more spots, I was saving a lot of my energy cause I thought we were.  Oh and Nem your Aunt is soooooooo nice!  she was feeding us until like 5 in the morning!  what a nice lady!  We should bring her to everyone of our jams and take care of the hospitality.  Nice job everyone and i can't wait till the eastcoast and New York jam.

Get with the flow...

There is a picture of just you cut out of I'm not sure what on the top left corner with "Urban Exercise Art" written around you, "Parkour seems to be a combination of the three" and then the page number the article is on.

Likewise Cloud, and to all of you! This has been one helluva weekend I tell you what.
Thanks for setting it all up Nem, and you're aunt is possibly the nicest woman in the world.

It'll be good to sleep in an actual bed tonight :p

That was a cool jam, both figuratively AND literally! Big ups to Nem, Auntie Nem, Nem's parents, and the Michigan traceurs for hosting this jam. I hope to see all of you in D.C. and/or NYC this summer!

Well... I feel left out lol :-[. Just kidding. Hopefully I will be abled to the next ig jam and finally get to meet the rest of you guys (m2 especially because I have yet to meet you likewise ::)) maybe in THE NEXT MIPK jam or D.C. or N.Y.C. or something. It would be nice to meet this awesome aunt though so the next MIPK jam might be my best bet, ;D that is if you host it again Nem.

Many thanks to Nem, nems aunt for the food and hospitality, and M2 for providing the framework to get this organized nationally! Also thanks to the Flames Gym for offering to let us use their facilities, even though we decided against it.

It was really great seeing the local michigan guys, Nem, Spydur, Monk, Xero.  And of course the hospitality was great too, thanks nancy!  We totally went overboard on the energy drinks too but it was worth it.  Seeing fellow tribe guys again made the jam better too.  It was like overload, everything happened so fast. I'll see some of you in DC in about a month, and the rest in july at the Midwest jam if you guys are up for it.
