BMXTRIX is happy to be hosting the official information for the 2003 York Jam.  Please check back several times for updated information as it becomes available.

When Is It:  The 2003 York Jam will be taking place on Saturday, July 26, 2003 and there will be people hanging around Sunday, July 27, 2003.  It will be going on all day - show up anytime, there is no 'official' start time, there is no official end time.

What Will Be Going On:  Just riding?  Well, that and possibly some sort of video showing in the evening.  It looks like BMXTRIX will be bringing a projector and there will be some conversation with Eaton and the York crew about what will be shown.  Possibly the new BMXTRIX video Horizons may be available at that time.  It will be an outdoor showing around 8:30PM with no charge for the viewing and videos should be available to take home after the viewing.

Who Can Come:  Everyone!  This is not a contest, but just a 'get together' for everyone who is into riding.  Not just flatlanders, but the entire bike riding, specifically freestyle BMX community.  Last year, people from as far away as Brazil were in attendance - so what's you excuse for not being there?  If you are a beginner, with less than a year of riding experience then this is a MUST show up event!  The most fun you can have because it's not a contest, and the lot is HUGE so you can just hide in a corner when you want to ride, or watch guys that are really, really good, rip it up.

What To Bring:  Your bike, a good attitude, plenty to drink - it's July after all!  Pretty darn warm and definitely humid.  People may bring some cool stuff to sell, so if you want to buy the latest video or something like that, bring 15 extra bucks for that, and 10 bucks for an 'Official York Jam' t-shirt if you want one.  But, you are NOT required to buy anything at all.  It's free, it's fun, it's the York Jam.

Directions:  York is located in Pennsylvania a about an hour or so from Philadelphia, PA and Baltimore, MD.  The location of the jam will be the Queensgate Shopping Center off of Queen Street in York.
