Any ideas on the dates? I know it's REALLY early, but I REALLY want to go again, but I have been presented with an opportunity to go to Germany around June 17. Just trying to see which one I can make...or if I can make BOTH! (greedy bastard, huh?!)

How about 6-11-11?  or another way of looking at it 11-6-11...

I sense good Feng Shui / Ying Yang with those numbers...

I'm positive there will be a Bulldog Skates West Coast Jam this year. Currently there isn't anything planned. As with every previous year, I'm happy to pass the torch to anyone who can coordinate the whole shindig.

In the past, I've scheduled the WCJ to be on the last weekend of June. However, we could easily pick another weekend around that time. No matter what, we need to make sure our favorite Tattoo and Sign Artist is able to make it.

Some ideas have already been presented to me for next year's WCJ. One person recommended skipping Los Osos and holding the entire thing at Toyland. Someone else suggested we do an all-night lockout at Lake Cunningham. Wes suggested we build a ramp in his living room and rage at his pad all weekend. (OK, the last one is not true.)

I'll PM hike4it to see what the Raffle King has in mind. But again, I'm not certain I'll be the one coordinating the WCJ this year.

For anyone who has not visited Lake Cunningham skatepark yet, it's a must-see and must-ride! That is an awesome place for a jam because of the variety of old-school terrain. Plus, I will promise not to talk about politics or religion during the jam if it is held there!




There are some kid-friendly areas too.

You're too kind, Mickey!

I like Los Osos...that kidney is so much fun! Lake Cunningham rules, though. We usually have a mini-pre-jam there.  Something for everyone and more than large enough to handle a huge gathering. Not sure what the cooking situation would be like, though?

End of the month would be cool. Beginning of July might be even better. After the 4th, for better flight availability.

Tony, Lake Cunningham is not just for the gnar-dogs. The full pipe and the bowl with capsules have roll-ins for us drop-in challenged skaters!
They also have done all-night events, if people want to have hours of exclusive skating in the cooler evening and overnight.

@ Barnett and any possible organizers: info. from the City of San Jose parks site:

Lake Cunningham's Picnic Areas

pavilionThere are numerous picnic areas throughout the park which can accommodate small to very large groups. Several are available on a first come, first served basis (One adult may save only one table). The picnic areas surround a large open turf area open to all for fun and games. Volleyball courts and horseshoe pits are available; just bring your own equipment. Designated picnic areas are available through advanced reservations for a nominal reservation fee.

bbqThe Cypress Pavilion can accommodate 400 people comfortably and is a prime area for large group or company picnics. It boasts large covered patios, complete with a cooking and serving area that includes BBQ grills, electricity and running water. It also offers a small stage as well as nearby restrooms and parking.

Details on sites and reservations online at:
http://www.sjparks.org/Parks/RegionalParks/lcp/lcpPicnic.htm

These look promising:
For Groups up to 75 people:

The Alder Leaf North Picnic Area is located near Parking Lot B and is just a short walk to a playground, horseshoe pits, and a volleyball court. The area is semi-shaded by trees. It has twelve tables and six small barbecues.

Silver Creek Picnic Area is located at the north end of the meadow, near Parking Lots C and D. There is a nearby volleyball court, and it is just a short walk to a playground. It has fourteen tables, and one large and six small barbecues.

Reservations for either of these areas must be made in person at Leininger Center located in Kelley Park at 1300 Senter Road. Office hours are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10:00a.m. to 2:00p.m.

To find out date availability or fees, please call (408) 277-2757 x00.

Cool! Like I said...I love Lake Cunningham!  The full pipe is a BLAST! Bill and I even started messing around witih the back yarder....FUN! the flow bowl/monolith is lots of fun. There's a mini bowl next to that, that I think a lot of the BDS guys and gals would dig, too. I still didn't get around to skating the pro bowl, after 2 visits. Maybe this year?  

The other "+" to having the Jam @ Lake Cunningham, would be flights into San Jose and less driving. Less driving = more skating.

San Jose is usually 90 degrees and up in June and July. A private night session would be cool as all hell, though...
