I find this on craigslist.-----
Any kind of performer? Then we want you!
This Satuday, April 26th is San Francisco Sunset District's Relay For Life, the American Cancer Society's premier fundraising event. We have plenty of openings for performances still open, and while we aren't able to pay you, you will be performing for hundreds of SFSU college students and members of the community with your name in the program--great exposure!!
Please email me if you are interested in helping save lives and advancing your career at the same time!
Sounds like a decent enough cause. I dont know about a demo or anything but we could jam around and teach people probably....Sent an email with my number cause i realized its in two days. Is anybody down to do this with me?

So she responded within a few hours and i got home late so i checked.-
You know what, I'm retarded, I didn't even read the
subject of your email, which clearly states you want
to do a demo at Relay haha...don't mind me!!
As I said before, we would absolutely love to have
you. Please answer a few questions for me if you
(1) Is there a specific time you would like to do a
demo, or would you like us to schedule a time for you?
(2) Is there any special equipment you would need for
(3) Would you like to set up a table to advertise SF
Hope to hear from you soon!
So yeah it could become anything now. From jsut a cool situation to do some jamming or teach some basic vaults, how to incorporate pk into fitness, just spread sfpk.com at a table after i do a one person demo cause nobody helped.(worst case) lethalbeef? austin? nosole? meatlad? any of the new crews or beginner groups out there? We just need to show that ANYBODY can come do what we do on some level. call me up 949-677-9507=======WE HAVE 1 DAY TO PREPARE
We could easily have a small representation of the age groups/sexes/levels that train together here, depending on time and format of event, and availability of people.
My opinion is that the most representative person to talk about that would be Kaos, who
1. set up and co-runs a regional community (New England Parkour)
2. founded and co-runs a national community (Parkour North America)
3. started the first US regular parkour radio talk show (Parkour Radio)
4. has taught 75+ beginners only in the Bay Area in the last 12 months
5. has conceived and produced a series of parkour "untutorials" (Progression), where the goal is not demonstrating/teaching specific techniques, but facilitating a progressive system of learning and developing a PK-eye, -mentality and -approach to your environment.
[ehm... no, I'm not sponsored "Kaos"... lol!)
kaos is a busy guy and this is last second. I would LOVE to have all the begginner group "regulars" and irregulars come to this. I want to show what it is we really do and what it is really like to train around with us. So it is at Lowell High School and it starts at 1030. She told me i could go train around SFSU and the mall too. Haha if she only knew...
So yeah im running around trying to get flyers made and stuff. baparkour.com and sfpk.com are gonna be on it for now.
Im really shocked though. When she told me we could do this i was stoked. i post it up here and at sfpk.com and nobody seems down to be a part of it. oh well The Lone Ranger must man up.
Any other ideas or discussion points though? clinic ideas.
Since it is at Lowell so close to State, and there is the big fundraiser relay, i was thinking we do a few quick running jams through state or the mall, then loop back to the relay. Try to bring more people round. or take them with us.
i wanna go come. we should do this at my school(Thurgood Marshal) people seem to be interested in things like this there, i like to show them little tricks that make them go wide-eyed, but i havent been able to start a pk club there yet. this is really cool, how we'er expanding the pk community in the bay area.
I just got off the phone with Ryan. I think this would be a nice opportunity to tell people about our new site and expose some potential traceurs to what we do. We can give demonstrations and teach people some basic movements. One thing that will set us apart from other people who might do this demonstration is that we will focus on the beginners. We should not show big flashy dangerous movement, but instead show things that will help people understand how we train.
So Saturday we will have a BAParkour.com table set up at this event. Ryan will post the flier he plans to use as well as more details as they come. It would be nice to get a lady to join us to show the event goers that parkour is not all guys.
