2012 TomJam

Hey APK, Florida Parkour is hosting a national jam during New Years weekend: Friday, December 30th, 2011 through Sunday, January 1st, 2012.  Where better to ring in the new year than Tampa, Florida, surrounded by parkour brothers?  We're expecting to end up with well over a hundred attendees, including some international guests from France, Germany, and the UK.  In honor of FLPK's founding father who's returning from Canada for the season, we're calling the event "TomJam,"


Title: 2012 Florida Parkour National Jam

Location: Tampa, Florida

Date:  December 30, 2011 - January 1, 2012


------Weekend Itinerary------
Friday, December 30th: 

12:00PM-4:00PM - Meet on USF campus next to the parking garage. Wandering, training, the usual. Lunch on campus.

4:00PM-8:00PM - Gathering at the Pit for FLPK’s MoistRun. This will be a purely parkour-based competitive challenge. Those who make it through the qualifying round will move into a series of eliminations based on speed, strength, and efficiency. Only the moistest will survive.

8:00PM - Late dinner and settling in. We will have some housing available, but in the likely event that we’re not able to accommodate everyone, we’re working on setting up a group deal with the Embassy Suites across the street from campus. [DETAILS COMING SOON]

-------------------------- -------------------------
Saturday, December 31st

9:00AM-4:00PM - We’ll be arranging carpools to take everyone to Medard State Park for the day. This is a massive natural area where we can spread out and explore through the trees, roots, and hills all day. We’ll be cooking out on the grill and planning to spend all day in the dirt. There’s a lake nearby, so bring trunks if you feel like swimming.

6:00PM-9:00PM - Xcel 360 gym session and playing around on the Motion Park!

10:00PM-11:59PM – Back to basecamp, we’ll be having a New Year’s party leading up to midnight! (Possibly in the in the Embassy Suites’ Ballroom) Bring monies and ID if you want to drink!

-------------------------- -------------------------
Sunday, January 1st

10:00AM-5:00PM - Downtown Tampa training. We’ll gather at [PARK NAME] next to the art museum and wander from there. There are plenty of food options for lunch, and tons of training spots within walking distance. 

As people trickle out over the course of the day we’ll say our tearful farewells and invite them back for…
TOMJAM, 2012!
