Jam Camp 2010 officially opens for registration today. This is the third annual event where the pros have the time to turn you into an awesome jammer! The instructor list reads like a who’s who of freestyle Frisbee. Included on that list is Lori Daniels, this year’s Women’s Pairs World Champion with Sara Bergman. This will be Lori’s third year as an instructor. What keeps her going back is, “…the opportunity to give back to the sport that has given me so much,” says Daniels. Freestyle Jam Camp will be held January 2nd through the 3rd, 2010 in beautiful Los Angeles, California – USA. Come and learn how to catch and throw a disc in a variety of ways. Learn more
Juice: With Clock spin, set the disc on the left side of your body. Now, reach behind your legs/under your left leg with your left hand and pull the disc against the spin so it traverses between your legs.
Jake Gauthier and Randy Silvey pair up for Beach Stylers on November 14-15, 2009. Beach Stylers is likely to be one the biggest US based freestyle Frisbee tournaments, and is happening in San Diego, Ca. Although the pair are working as a team, Beach Stylers has a unique and exciting tournament format which pits all players against each other across a series of events: Open Pairs (for which Jake & Randy are partnered), Individuals (hardest move from throw to catch), Mo-Op (random teams of 3 or more), and the Air Brushing races.

Jake and Lori jammed at our usual indoor location (Multnomah Arts Ctr) in the gym tonight. The stereo didn’t work, so we had to play to the music in our heads. That apparently didn’t slow us down in peeling out some complicated individual combos. Jake pulled out a kick series with a right, left, and heel kick to a bad attitude catch in addition to his multiple spins to catches and his signature 4 against skid moves. Being impressionable and all, Lori figured out a few against skid maneuvers herself, including a left hand set under right leg to a right-hand behind the back skid rim pull to a catch. We also spent the last few minutes of our 1.5 hour jam to video more moves to post on Heinsville web-site so stayed tuned and y’all come back now! – LD
