I'm not sure about the DJ's, but the Lynn Valley bikeswap now has a new venue - BC place!

To add to the excitement we are delighted to be bringing Kris Holm, multi World Champion in Mountain Unicycling to the Expo! Plus we will be running a NSMBA Bike & Gear Swap all weekend long - raising money for local trails and ensuring that consumers are in the market for new and improved bikes, gear and accessories!

Okay, lets construct a chairlift or better yet a tow rope and then we can toboggan down the roof into the middle!

Where did I put my GT snow racer?

they've got a month to fix it. With this rain I wouldn't be surprised if they get right on it before the whole stadium floods.

From what I recall on the Expo side the man who gets the Crankworks Expo organized is going to do the outdoor show expo, so that, at least will be much better and hopefully bigger than in the last 2 years.

As for the DJ's vs Indoor North Shore thing... I have no ideas for y'all.

I seem to remember Crazy Canuck (Donahue) organizing it in the past. He said it was too hard to get all the dirt organized, make sure it's good dirt, etc etc etc. I guess last year or the year before all the dirt was either soaking wet or sand-dry, so the jumps suffered.

I seem to remember him thinking it was too much effort to organize the dirt jam.
