Title: Chicago Flatland Jam 2009
Post by: letsgo on July 29, 2009, 04:54:25 AM
Sorry for the mix up.  Here is the updated date.

I just got word from Alex at Nocturnal the Bicycle Film Festival has set aside some room for a flatland area.  For those of you who came last year you know it was a good time.

This year it is August 16th (Sunday) 1:30 PM, Emerald St. behind The Skylark 2149 S. Halsted St., Chicago, IL 60608.  

Send me an e-mail or post questions and I'll post updates.  See you there.

Should be a bunch of us there.  A lot of the Chicago crew is telling me they'll be there.

There will be a lot of stuff going on.  It is free to ride but I think you need passes or tickets to get into the films or events.  That area has a lot of galleries.

Jerr6 Th actual location is on Emerald behind the Skylark and the Currency Exchange.  It looks to be flat.

I am glad so may people are planning on making it.  It should be a good time.  A lot of other stuff will be going on as the Bicycl Film Festival will be turing the whole area into a block party.

just got back.  it was cool to meet new riders.  it sucked that it rained, but in true chicago jam style, we managed to find a nice dusty spot under the expressway.  Andy Musil and his homie Clancy were doing some sick combos in the dust.  Matt W was going off as always.  I managed to pull a trick or two, but the sound of fighter jets flying over the city kinda messed me up.  It was really cool to see older riders getting back into it.  Even though it rained, it was still fun to hang out with everyone.  See yall next year

That was fun as hell.  I'll never forget that weird oblivious guy who decided to join in and show off his figure 8 skills.  I didn't get a chance to talk to everyone, but if anyone wants to come around and sesh let me know, I live a few blocks away from the event.  FYI I'm David with the white ass bike.

Yes - on video tape. I even have last years on video tape.
It's not ready to post online, yet.
Once it is, I'll be more than happy to share.
While you're waiting for it, why don't you busy yourself with:
