This jam was at an art exhibition. We had all the ramps from the "Kongsi" where we couldn't stay any longer. We wanted to ride again, so we decided to build for 12 days to be open for just 10 days... With help from Wouter, Rutger, Ron and Ronaldo, Ed and I redesigned the park (in other words trying to sort out the way we could build it, as we used every inch of wood we had...). We did this with a very low budget and even had to use the screws from last time. Maybe next time we need some sponsors. Anyway, it resulted in a good rideable ghetto park.
We were kinda surprised how many people drove to "Dutch Texas". Riders from all over Holland found the place. Many had a longer trip than planned due to traffic jams etc. We really liked the atmosphere at the jam, nice relaxed good riding and live music. It was good to see you guys back again!!
It may take a while but we try to build the park at another location again! Also for permanent use, let's see how that works out.
We would like to thank; Hart van zuid, Gemeente Hengelo, Kongsi, Kunstcentrum Hengelo and everybody that turned up and helped with the expo and the jam, without you guys it was never possible. Hope to see you all next time.
Ed and Gert
