2001 Slam City Jam

Imagine your friend has the world's biggest skateboard park in his back yard and they invite about five thousand other people over to hang out, listen to tunes, play video games and skateboard all afternoon. That's kinda what the 2001 Slam City Jam in Vancouver, British Columbia was like - a three-day festival of skateboarding, music and just all around cool stuff.

The Skating
More than 200 guys and girls showed up to skate for $45,000 US in prizes. The big winners were Bob Burnquist, who won the vert contest, Eric Coston who won the street event and Vanessa Torres who won the female street contest. But the Slam City Jam wasn't just about the pros pulling off sick mctwists and kickflips - there was a brand new outdoor skate park right outside the Pacific Coliseum for anyone who brought a board to take advantage of.

Cool Games
Playstation set up a video arcade featuring the latest and greatest skateboard video games like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 and Grind Session.

Tunes
None of that crap your parents listen to here. It was a great chance to see djs putting their turntables into action. Usually these guys only play at clubs - but the SCJ was an all ages show, so no worries about getting in. Bands played on the soundstage all weekend - including Even Rude, Jurassic 5 and Suicidal Tendencies.

Tons of Free Stuff
There were lots of giveaways from Slam City sponors - t-shirts, decks, hats, posters, stickers.

You can catch a one hour special on the Slam City Jam on May 19th at 12:30 PM Pacific, 1:30 PM Central and 3:30 PM Eastern time on NBC.

    Hey! I have been in track and cross country for years! My opinion: Do what your heart tells you! If I was to choose, I would say track, but that's just me! :)
