Chicago Flatland Jam 2009
« 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.

I'm there.  Last year was really funny with those guys dressed up in Mexican wrestling masks and that whole scene.  I hope they are there again.

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.
