Question about Pink Flamingo Next Weekend @Cascade
Mar 16th, 2008, 8:29pm
 
As one who has been riding for about ten years, I finally got hooked into jumping just last year and haven't turned back. I consider myself a newbie when it comes to jumping and not really into the rails or boxes due to age. That fear factor adds up as you get older. Huh Could you tell me if attending this next week will be worth it? I'd like some honest input and not a sales pitch from those who will be teaching it. Are there certain levels that will be separated based on jumping abilities? Just curious and awaiting your reply. I'd like to attend, but I may piss off the In-Laws since it's Easter weekend. But, this sounds like it would be worth it.

Well, ours down here just wrapped up and there were people of all skill levels down here, and I think everyone learned something. It's just a matter of wanting to learn something and there is going to be someone that can help you learn it.

definitely worth it. I know at perfects there are people who come in only knowing how to do some straight airs, but leave doing 3s+ and maybe even backflips. the camps going to be better if you can hit all the hits, but still hell of a time if you can only hit the littles. If you want to improve and try something new but dont know how or cant convince yourself, then go. There will be a ton of people there willing to help you out. I know because I had a few coaches come find me and convince me to try new things this weekend.  
 
Also Im just a camper, not a coach or anything so I have anything to gain by you going.

It is tempting. But when you're 39, it takes to heal. The forecast says there might be some fresh powder also.

i saw on guy who looked in his 30's and tryen to learn backflips  
and another who also seemed in his 30's that came in doen little airs and ended by doen some 3's  
i also have a friend who is almost 30 and just started last year and he loves to learn new stuff
and getten hurt is kinda hard to do, and i fall alot, cause its usally soft

I convinced my wife since I have to pick up our pontoon boat from storage near there anyway.
 
If I come out of this landing 360s, it will be all worth it. Is there somebody who catches it on film/digital? It could be some funny stuff.

I'm sure there will be photographers and filmers around. We had several of each down here at ours and I don't see any reason why there wouldn't be any up there.

Lots of snow for the camp! Cascade has to be hitting themselves. They would have made a fortune this weekend.
