I think the FEJ was the best Jam nation wide and DEFINETLY on the eastern side of the nation.

Itís just kind of sad to see a dying scene that IS N.A. and a great time get lost.

I mean we only have a few contests a year worthy of travel...but FEJ was the "after the fact" soul of a once thriving North American scene. Lots of people would show up for the FEJís and Athens Jams before that didnít really want to go rep skill at a contest for judges.

Voodoo was my peanut butter and FEJ was my Jam!

Iím just wondering who'd be interest in trying to put something on the weekend before or after..or hell on the same weekend.

The contest usually goes on in downtown Athens during a somewhat large rode bike race.

If people wanted to make it into some flatland week..we could hold a Jam IN Athens the weekend before or after. I was thinking it'd be difficult the same weekend to find  nice large lot strictly due to the demise of Tate and with the larger rode bike race its hars to find locations. The Church I donít think can accommodate a large group..so????

Plus the more peole that have good excuses to travel for the Jam would also provide MORe support and entryís into a Contest which could help to grow the contest yearly.

Any ideas before we lose one of the grassroot Jams that actually prevented total rigamortis from setting into a once thriving scene.

Its funny how similar the flatland scene in North America is to THAT movie FlatlinersÖ

Damn..no one care about the old FEJ's?

Maybe it was simply a drug induced sleepy time visual i experienced and never happened.

I think a lot of people care but are just confused by the title of the thread.  I'd love to return to the Final Exam Jam or the AthFam jam or whatever it's called as long as I have the weekend open (rare).

I dunno ITs been read 129 times.

I think we should get something going at either KHols or Shaynes old court..or I guess its yours now...or Brian Nichols. lol

Im going to start getting people organized for next month.

When is the best time for you to make it?

Preferably on either Saturday or a holliday.

It'd be nice to get something going with regularity with us and the Athens guys..like if we just said the last Saturday or first Saturday of every month we'd make that effort.

NoGa Flatterdays??

I'll swith up the title.

It will forever be Brian Nichols' court to me.  It's still such a nice place to ride and a decent place for a small jam.

When is the best time for you to make it?  Preferably on either Saturday or a holliday.

Saturdays (with some planning) or Sunday afternoons are best for me.  I have 13 nieces/nephews/God sons who are constantly having birthdays so I just have to plan ahead.
