Posted:The news has now been officially communicated, our local Fire and Drum Jam has been officially closed. The Portland Parks and Recreation and Portland Fire Department will be enforcing the two year old no open fire ordinance in public parks. As the ordinance stands right now there is no way that we can challenge it and its a $500.00 fine if you get caught. This weekend will be the first Fire and Drum Jam after the meeting so we expect that the police will be out to enforce the ordinance and there will be people getting ticketed.

The one bright spot is that PP&R and the PFD is willing to talk with us to try and figure out what can be done for the fire community and to reestablish the fire part of the Fire and Drum Jam.

This is a dark day for the fire community in Portland. For those people (like me) that the Fire and Drum Jam was the only venue for spinning fire lets just say that my fire toys have been put up until something can be done. Spinning glows just isnt the same, which will be the only legal light that can be spun.

Im going to miss it.

Posted:Seattle has similar problems with the public/law and firespinners. If someone in your group has a private residence with a large yard/property area you might be able to get around it like that. Although then maybe neighbors might be upset about all the drumming <_<

Posted:I just read that long post, you actually need a permit to spin at a private residence? That seems a bit ridiculous to me. Where did you learn that?
