I just wanted to get the word out about locoparks.com. There have been a lot of upgrades over the summer and it has turned into a pretty rad website. It's a great community for Midwest riders, and provides a more exposure for the Midwest than newschoolers seems to provide. Basically it's a newschoolers focused on providing news, forums, photo and video uploading, event coverage, and all kinds of other shenanigans for the Midwest. One of the best things is that resorts can advertise free of charge on there. If you work at a midwest resort, just contact one of the administrators, including myself, and give us event details and such and we will throw it up on the home page. Right now there are a lot of cascade and sunburst locals on it, but I would love to see people from all over the Midwest really take an interest in this website. So, please take a couple minutes to register and explore what it has to offer. And the other awesome thing is, if there is something you don't see on there that should be there... say maybe a section in the forums or whatever... just say so and it will be taken care of.
Also, I am doing a lot of the publishing of articles on the homepage, so if you are at an event it would be super awesome if you wanted to write a short little blurb and send me some pictures or videos and I will put it up on the homepage and everyone can see what is happening at other parks around the Midwest. My screenname on there is "The Future", hit it up! Also you can email me articles or event info at firstname.lastname@example.org
