The tenth year anniversary Cookie Jam happened recently in Exeter, Devon. The Flowerpots Skatepark was the venue, masses of people turned up to ride, drink beers, send it, melt in the sun, and party hard at the local social club.
Tom Butland: “Cookie Jam is Exeter’s yearly BMX jam that’s taken place for the last ten years in memory of Jamie Bruce, a fellow rider who sadly passed away.”
Josh Andrews: “His memory brings hundreds of riders of all ages and families of all backgrounds together. Not just for one day but for the whole weekend. It’s just an amazing atmosphere for everyone involved.”
Jamie Skinner: “This year marks 10 years since our friend Jamie Bruce passed away. The first year we did a Jam it was just a few people at the skate park, building a couple of ghetto ramps, having a good time and remembering a good friend.
Since then, every year it has gotten bigger and better. There were never any plans to keep it going this long! It started out at Arena skate park, but 5 years ago we moved the Jam to Flowerpots skate park as it’s so much bigger and newer. We’d actually stopped building the ramps, but as this year was the 10th anniversary, we thought we’d take the Jam back to its roots and build some fun additions to the park.”
Connor Danzelman: “It’s all about raising money for charity and having a good time!”
