Once again time has past and the Slamm Jamm approaches its 16th session. When I gave birth to the concept of this event back in late 1999, the focus was to create a gathering of community. Up to the point of the first Slamm Jamm I had only ever attended rolling events around the UK and Europe that were based around competition formats. They always seemed constrictive and scheduled, were by not everyone was involved in the whole rolling experience. After attending the Lausanne International Roller competition in 1997 it opened my eyes as to how much of a community Rollerblading is worldwide. I wanted to grasp that feeling of community / family and produce a gathering in the UK were by it didnt matter about competition or your status, it just mattered that you ROLLED.
Sadly Lausanne International Competition is no more but events like IMYTA+, Slamm Jamm, Xbattle, Winterclash, Summerclash, Hoedown, MTL Classic, Barnburner, BCSD over the past years kept that sense of community running worldwide. From it’s humble beginnings Ive watched Slamm Jamm grow and flourish into a major UK event dedicated to everything that is Rolling. Each year I see more and more new faces attending from all over the UK / Ireland and beyond. For me Slamm Jamm is a place where you come to session, party, converse, hook-up, watch, develop, create, and all importantly ROLL with friends and family.
