THE DATE FOR STEPHEN'S JAM AT NASTY'S TRAIL'S, HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL POSSIBLY OCTOBER. AFTER TALKING WITH MANY OF THE PRO RIDERS AT THE LAST DEW STOP, THE SEPTEMBER DATE CONFLICTED WITH PRIOR COMMITMENTS. NOT A BAD THING, AS THIS WILL ALLOW US MORE TIME TO PREPARE AND GET EVERYONE INVOLVED. I WILL BE SURE TO KEEP YOU ALL POSTED WHEN THE NEW DATE HAS BEEN CONFIRMED. PLEASE CONTACT ME WITH ANY QUESTION AND OR IDEAS.

Over the years we’ve had some “side activities” going on at the FAT-JAM. We used to go lake jumping the day after the FAT-JAM, we had Marco Stalman in a Evel Knievil suit jumping from one side of the trails to the other side before FMX became popular.One year we had the BMX Olympics, one year we had a moped jump show, an old school party, high jump contest, Bavaria factory tour and more. We’ve been doing this jam for 19 years and it’s safe to say that we’ve had some fun.

No photo passes were handed out at the FAT-JAM so if you had a video camera or a digital snapper, you got the chance to get as close to the action as you wanted. Ken "Kemo" van Hamme took a whole lot of photos for his KEMOBMX website. You can see them all by hitting THIS LINK. Clint Millar got into photo action before hitting the jumps himself. You can find his report right here (just scroll down a bit). Our very own webmaster Jos Wissink came over and shot a few pics during the day which are put together in this little photo gallery. Enjoy.
