Who hosts the skating events listed on the calendar?
A: Skating events listed on the calendar
are hosted by individuals, skate clubs, DJs or anyone interested
in putting forth the time and effort to coordinate the function.
There are so many events listed. How do I determine which
one(s) to attend?
A. The event you attend is your decision.
You decide where your time and discretionary income will
allow you to go.
AND NATIONAL EVENTS
How do I determine the difference between a Local
and National Event?
A: Some events are considered local while
others are considered national and either type will be listed
on the Skate Jamz calendar.
Local events are usually
more heavily advertised in a local area within a certain
radius of the host location. If you live far away but will
be in the area at the time, or just feel like going to the
event, then by all means you will be welcome to attend.
Local events are characterized by the day of the week. Most
of them are usually held on a Sunday or a weekday, such
as birthday parties or special events during normal skate
National events are advertised
on a broad level. This means that the event coordinator
who posted the advertisement on the Website, has also distributed
flyers at other local and national events throughout the
year. They will also indicate on their advertisement that
they are expecting skaters from different cities or states
National events are held
two or more nights on a weekend or holiday
weekend and includes a host hotel block. This allows for
travel time to and from the event. Events held on Sunday
only are local events.
National events usually
have a designated Host Hotel listed for out-of-town visitors.
Q: What is the difference
between a "Main Event" party and other parties
during a weekend?
A: The Main Event is generally the event
where the bulk of the skate crowd is expected to attend.
This event may include skate special skates such as Roll
Call, Skate Competitions, Skate Exhibitions and Award Recognition
among others. The event agenda depends on the host.
What is the Host Hotel?
A: The Host Hotel is the establishment
that has been designated as the central lodging for skaters
attending an Event. It is where you will find the Host or
Coordinator of each event to purchase tickets for the event
and get all the information you need about places to go
in the area and driving directions. Many skaters choose
to stay at this hotel in order to network and socialize
with one another in one central location.
