The 2013 Greensboro Slide Jam is going down on
April 6th May 25th in Greensboro, North Carolina. The jam is scheduled to start at 10:00AM with registration followed by warm-ups at 10:30AM and the actual competition starting at 11:00AM, we’ll post the whole schedule below. It’s a sanctioned event on a closed road, which means you should be guaranteed to get some good runs in without having to worry about the heat shutting the event down. There’s a $10 fee to register, gloves and a helmet are mandatory. As usual, the organizers say no drinking, chiefing cheeba, or littering.
In addition to just the usual podium, there’s going to be an award for biggest slide and biggest switch slide as long as a raffle at the end. As of this post there are 90 people RSVP’ed as “Going” on Facebook, with that number likely to grow as the date draws near. If you go send some pictures and a quick write up so we can post about it!
