Voodoo Jam 2012
« on: February 29, 2012, 04:43:56 AM »
Hello all. Well we are back after 2 year break.


We are rolling at the moment setting up Voodoo for 2012. The Date is June 9th. In New Orleans Louisiana.


Website is being built right now by Hector Garcia. Splash page is up. www.voodoojam.com .. Thanks Hec!!!


Some things to touch on.


We will still have the big Jam on Friday before. Location and details later. Most riders that come and spectate enjoy that day so its very important to us to have the Jam on Friday.  That is a big event on its own.


We plan on having 3 classes. Beginner, Expert and Pro.


Pro format changes are to come. I will release those on the website. But I also explained my changes on Flat web tv interview coming out in March. Thanks Justin!


We also want to increase rider participation and have riders be excited about being a part of such a fun and special event. The crowd at Voodoo's Pro Final's is the best in the world to ride in front of. People love to come year after year just to see Flatland.  Most of these people do not even ride but love the event and can't wait for its return.


Also, winner of Expert WILL ride in Pro class. We really want riders to make the jump and what better way to do it with no stress just go out and have fun with nothing to loose.
We did this in 2004(Shayne Kaja)


Sponsor interest please contact Terry Adams- flatlandadams@yahoo.com

Think thats all for now..


Much Love and hope to see you all at The Voodoo Jam!
Scott and Terry

I intend on attending. If you're only going to make it out to 1 AMCircut stop this year, let it be VooDoo. I've booked the days off from work and I'm on course for my savings plan. Nice.
I was at the 2008 contest and prejam. The prejam was at a smaller basketball court or some sort of cement slab. It was cool, but like 40 people showed up to ride, and there was room for about 3 people to ride. SO *ahem* hoping the prejam will take place somewhere more spacious. I don't want to be rude or pushy, but I'll be dropping a cool grand or so to make this event and I don't want to spend it sitting in the grass. I want to ride mothaf*ckers!
 
Thanks  :beer:

#1 Reason it is there because people are friendly and we don't get kicked out.
I am considering a few other locations if it changes i will make an announcement. It's a basketball court so thats pretty big. Not sure why you could not find space to ride at something that size. ??
We have about 3 jam circles going on at once. The last time was 2009 and there was a lot of riders there riding and enjoying the vibe for sure.


Amahl as too the baseball stadium we have to make sure there is no game and there is a police station right there now. SOOOOOOO, We of course run the risk of getting kicked out of private property. We should have 40 to 60 riders come.


I have time and a few other spots to check out.
Let you guys know.


Thanks for coming!!
