Simpel Session 11 announced!

We are happy to announce that Simpel Session 11 will take place in the first week of February 2011 in Tallinn Estonia. We plan to have two full practice days this year as well as some exciting film screenings, so the full festival dates (together with the party program and the open day afterwards) will be 2-7 February 2011. This is still a preliminary info and there might come some changes but we felt we need to get this out as Tallinn2011 published some wrong dates in their materials and people have been asking about it quite a lot. So, start booking your calendar and flights! Main contest dates will be 5-6th of February 2011!

See you in Tallinn for an unforgettable weekend of the Simpel Session 11.

More info and new website soon.

Bunnyhop jam

On Saturday we made a small bunnyhop jam during Tallinn Day at Liberty Square (where Tallinn2011 program was announced). Aleks Issaenko cleared the highest bar (1.10m), followed closely by Oliver "Kass" Kurbas who managed to pull 1.05m as his top mark. It was fun! Big thanks to everyone who took part!
