OTAKU JAM '10: Revenge of the Nerds (July 31st, Baltimore)
« on: June 23, 2010, 07:57:36 PM »
It's that time of year again, the anime convention known as Otakon is only about a month away and you know that means, another Otaku Parkour Jam!

Last years Otaku Jam was a HUGE success with a good number of people showing up (around at least 30-40), along with a few interested people just joining in and tagging along. Here we go again for the 4th year in a row!

To name a few of the great spots we jammed at: The Skywalk network and the buildings surrounding them,  the planters in front of the Sheraton, all along with a SWEET fountain that reminds one of the infamous Skyline park in Denver, CO.
 
Otakon this year is being held once again at he good ol' Baltimore Convention Center on July 30th through August 1st.

I figure we'll meet at the same time, same place as last year: Saturday July 31st at 11am Under the Skywalk(for shade purposes!), next to the steps leading up to it at the edge of the Convention Center. Only one end of the convention center has a skywalk connected to it so it shouldn't be too hard to find(the other side is just a bridge connecting to the new Hilton). Here is my phone number if anyone has any questions, or needs help finding us if they're late or lost: 443-851-5936


P.S. All are welcome to attend, being an anime/video game nerd like us is not a requirement. See you all there guys!

Ah good to see you're coming RPG. I'm starting to get a little worried since I'm not getting alot of responses here on APK.

How long are you planning to jam for Saturday?  Are you considering jamming Sunday?

The jam will be pretty much all saturday afternoon. So most of the day. As for Sunday, doubt it we have never done it in the past Otaku jams.

You need to come Sam, its been far to long since we've trained! And yeah the amount of responses this year is kind of scary.

Despite the low response from APK, we had a great showing this year and had one hell of a time!  Thanks for making this just as fun as last year's jam.  Also, again like last year, look out for another Baltimore jam in the upcoming two to three weeks!

Yeah, was definitely a great time. Good spots, and good people. Can't wait for next year, and the jam in the next few weeks.

Yes, thanks guys for organizing it! It was a blast and it's always great to check out new spots close to DC. It was the most fun I had in a while, I think due to Otakon and all the costumes! Definitely keep us updated on more jams in bmore.
