I would like to throw my $.02 in at this point (unlike all those other times when I'm so shy and reserved).

Women / Girls will come to this sport depending on how they are treated. When a girl show up on the forum and gets 20Pm's asking where she lives and how she's doing and how old she is and would she like to go do some PK ... it probably scares the crap out of her.

alternately when everyone in the forms goes "ooh girl" ... that doesn't help either. If a girl is going to join us, she needs to be treated like she is one of us, not so special. Just give girls the same respect and treatment you give other people, forget that they are girls because their femininity has nothing to do with their PK except that they can move better than we can :)

Also remember that as much as guys have been told to get down off walls or out of trees, girls have been told that 10X over ... "little girls don't do that" ... so it may be more of an adjustment for some of the girls, give them time, give them space, and treat them with respect. That's all we can ask for anyone.

When you say the same respect and treatment we give other people, I think we should maybe give them a little more respect then we do ooooh say gear? Hahahaha j/k.

Hey spotted one chick on here but forgot and didn't think much about it.

BTW have you noticed how many new traceurs there are in the past few weeks. Here there used to be me and one other, now theres around 15. WOW. We also just did another article in a paper so that should bring even more. I'm getting excited!

Yeah, at the Bethesda jam there were a good 20 people. Granted M2 and Pistol are from Jeresy, but still the thought of that many people like right around here was awesome. Let's do it again soon guys!

Good site.  Much respect.  Now, as for something you can change,....well....


heck I am no web designer, it looks good for me.  Now lets start setting up some JAMS! 

I'm sure if M2 were to set up something, people from all over would try to make it.  Especially in such a wonderfull PK wonderland as NY..(so I hear)  ;D

You do live in NY right?  Because the north pole wouldnt work as well..possibly.

I live in southern maryland, but i run in northern Va/D.C. most of the time.
