new comp in kalamzoo
hey im thinking about trying to put together a comp at a place called echo valley in kalamazoo and i was woundering if any one would be interested
I went to school in Kzoo and have never heard of that place. Where is it?
Yeah I've never heard of it either but I'd be down if there is going to be a decent set up.
'word up motha bitches'
Its not even a ski hill but a sleding hill and ice skating pond. I dont know how a comp would work there.
my parents know the folks who own it and i going to try to pitch that we throw a comp there this winter i have the plans set up and everything, i thinkin like any where between 4 to 6 rails in a jam format. but yea if you have any idea of what rails you wanna see there say something im trying to make this as riderbased as i can
oh yea and the place is a tobogganing and tubing place but the tube hill is where i wanna put the rail and hell if the comp dosent work the tobobbains go like 60
we the MM AFFILIATES would look forward to hearing about further development on your event and if the weekend fall right we will consider it
Marquette Mountian is the best Park in the midwest! Doubt me? Try us I Double dare you
if it goes down you MM guys got a place to stay.
HELL YEA, i live in Portage, i use to go to Echo Valley all the time when i was little, just get some dates and ill be there
if i did get the comp together what kind of rail would you wanna see, i want to make this a really rider based comp
You got everything else lined up for the sitch? Like a DJ?????? I am from the area, go to Michigan State, and would be willing to spin some shit at that beast. I am no DJ whokid but I can hold my own. WORD!
Some people only see that I'm white ignoring skill cause I stand out like a green hat with an orange bill...
Heck Yes. I live like 15 min from there, in Plainwell. If it was the right weekend, Id prolly come down for it tyler. We could also hit up some urban that night or soemthing. As for rails.....yeah know, narly ones. Double kinks, up-downs, fun stuff. Lemme know if this goes down.
Yea man some cool urban-like rails, and maybe something liek a dragon rail... i don't know what ever you put ill hit
hey mosely, let me know when its gonna be so i can come down. it would be cool if you did just a straight up jib contest, cause it be impossible to build any decent hits at echo valley. just set up a bunch of rails and boxes and let the madness ensue. by the way, this is jason if you didnt know
so like no comp just a jib fest and like have a vote for the 2 sickest people at the end of the day or what?
Just throw a couple straight rails, a rainbow, a couple s rails and then just make on thats totally crazy... like a up/down s rail. Maybe throw a picknic table in there for shits and giggles. If you can put a decent table at the bottom so people can throw spins off it at the end of their run. Maybe if you know anyone with a old p.o.s. car.. tow it out there to grind on.. it would be different and hot.
yeah dude, just set up a jam formatt, with the skiers voting for the winner at the end. Maybe a winner take all comp, or 1st and second pay-outs. As for features, id keep it simple. Maybe a flat or kinked box. And a kinked rail of some sort. If you put a lot of crappy things in there, it wont be as fun as 2 or 3 good features. What were you thinking about dates? Im going to be home over thanksgiving break(tues-sat), and plan on hitting soem urban with Hornbeck and TJ, let me know.
im stilln not sure of dates because i dont wanna run over any other comps you know but yea for rail so far we have a hand rail neil barkers stole right out of the ground we might jack a picknic table and we are thinking a up-down for sure, a bow( maybe set up like a hand rail) a strait rail and maybe possibly a flat down flat it all depends on cost, so if you live near k-z00 and you can weld that would be sick
