Unfortunately I don't think that's the case here, but I'll look into it.  I'm sure I can find somewhere to park around campus...

All right, I know some areas that you can possibly park in without worrying about a meter, but there are no guarantees there will be an open spot.  So I will continue looking for a backup lot.

To confirm, the jam will start at 9:30 AM on Saturday the 20th, and we will meet outside 30th street station at 30th St. and Market St.

Correct?

One hundred percent correct.  Let me make this a big old official update:

THE JAM WILL BEGIN AT 9:30 AM OCTOBER 20TH AT 30TH STREET STATION
http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=30th+street+station&near=Philadelphia,+PA&fb=1&cid=0,0,16891349156771755782&sa=X&oi=local_result&resnum=1&ct=image

Anyone who is leading any particular group should exchange phone numbers with me ahead of time in case there are delays, problems, etc.  PM me if you haven't already.  For everyone else, we will take care of that at the Jam.

ALSO:  If you are staying in my dorm, make sure I know about it.  Right now I am going by the headcount that is taking place on NYParkour.com
http://www.nyparkour.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=695
So I am currently expecting only those mentioned on that website.  I only have so much space, so if I don't know ahead of time I cannot make guarantees.  Also, to those staying here, my suitemates and I are requesting any sort of small donations you may be able to make for staying here, as there will be a lot of you, and I am really the only one that really practices parkour.  Everyone else is willing to expend overnights to let you guys in.

If there are any more questions or concerns, let me know ASAP.  Other than that, let's have some fun and make this a Jam to remember!!

THE PLAN FOR SUNDAY OCT 21:

Meet at the Art Museum between 9:30 and 10 am.  Crew will be considerably smaller, and jam will not be lasting terribly long.  If you are planning on attending, be there at that time, or contact someone via phone.  I feel bad because some people either didn't show up, or showed up and couldn't find us because they didn't have anyone's contact info.  So anyways, hope you guys can show up, and early cause we're all pretty worn out from day one.

Glad everyone had such a good time, I'm really happy this thing turned out well.  Let me know whenever you guys get a craving to come back down, either way I'll be sure to arrange something again in the future.

Also, by that time Ty and myself will (hopefully) have kicked Philly into shape and have a few more reps from our own city.

The total highest headcount was 18 or 19 people.  I'll have pics up soon.

Pics of the jam are up, browse and enjoy.

Happydud, if you want to get up the pics that Atrem took that'd be cool too.

Thanks man.

Well, we got kicked out of a few places but that's expected.  Other than that we didn't get into any trouble, so it worked out really well.

That's a tough call... Go for a poll on this one.

Personally I think it's probably either Penn's campus or City Hall.  There's plenty to do around both, lots of room too.
