In reply to:
FREE loads, we already had aorund 10 loads sponsored for the original Rodriguez Brothers boogie by the time Skyfest decided to move to Chester. If i recall this was already explained on last years discussions and even you agreed that we introduced FREE loads and that Skyfest introduced FREE jumps.

...and I handed you a free lead-in to brag on the free load idea...you caught on!

So lets leave out all the negative thoughts behind..
OK...under the rug. Politics does suck, doesn't it.

Do you guys have rv slots if so how do I reserve one? And how big are they I have a 40ft 5th wheel with 3 slide out. I need a 40ft x 12 ft to park the damn thing.

And I am not going to the wafle house at 2 am and getting robbed again. lolUnsure

Hi Taxiway - sorry for the slow response on this - I haven't been on the boards in about a week or so. RV Slots sold out two weeks ago. The pre-registrations this year have been more robust than any boogie we've hosted in the past. If you plan to attend - please preregister here:
http://www.carolinafestboogie.com/...om/Registration.html.

IN OTHER NEWS:

1. We've just added Brian Buckland to our organizer list. Brian will be the lead photographer capturing the happenings of the event.

2. We've just booked our band for the Saturday night of the event....a great band with a great vibe and very popular in Charlotte.

I went and checked out the Chester State Park today. It is located 10 miles from the airport and about 3 miles from downtown chester. They have about 20 campsites with water and electric hook ups there. It seemed like a really nice place if your looking for hook ups.

You can book online reservations at www.southcarolinaparks.com but Ranger Rick said to book as far out as possible because they do fill up.

Your 40 footer would be a squeeze at most of the sites but they do have one or 2 that it would work at.

Thanks for stating that Shag...I have been there as well and it's really nice as well....great lake as your backdrop and literally 10 minutes from the DZ.

Incidentally, Icarus is now a confirmed vendor for CarolinaFest and will be bringing demos galore......

Totally stoked for the next few weeks to pass by quick and be at the DZ.

Team Scarecrow is going to be there EVERYDAY offering organizing and hopefully a lot of discounted coaching!!!

Less than 1/2 price on all freefly coach jumps. That is only $15 per jump plus slot. And ALL Scarecrow jumps are to include training, video debriefs, and a DVD of your FreeFly Jumps - in the privacy of an air-conditioned classroom.

We are also offering a schedule of seminars throughout the week on tracking and group flying; these will occur before organized sunset loads.

In case you are unfamiliar our team and want to know a little about the focus of Scarecrow, please visit our page at:

Team Scarecrow


Anyone interested in signing up for coaching, please click this link:

Anyway...we're pumped for the JUMP FESTIVAL OF THE YEAR at Skydive Carolina and are looking forward to some sick skydives with everyone!!!

CeeYA There!!!!,

We are 24 days away and we are counting down with great anticipation! Pre-registration has been very healthy and it looks like we've got a great crowd coming out! Blue Skies Magazine and LiquidSky will now be attending with rumors that Trunk will be coming up with Hypoxic goodies and stickers.....(ladies, be on the lookout!). Here is the latest happenings for the event: http://tinyurl.com/33bwocr

Hey, I registered for the boogie (for both myself and my boyfriend) on the website, and then sent an email asking confirmation that my registration was received and haven't heard back. Who can I check with?

Re: [kmills0705] CarolinaFest 2010 - Skydive Carolina [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi Kimberly - you guys are definitely all set! I just double checked on your pre-registration and you're good to go! Look forward to meeting you guys!

In other quick news....Hypoxic will be joining us on vendor row! A camera flyer seminar will be hosted on Friday and Saturday of the event at noon each day. This will be a similar seminar that was held at the Expo which was a great one! If you fly camera at all this is a must to sit in on!

Updates are literally coming in fast and furious! Stay tuned as lots of great things are happening. Boogie bag supplies are rolling in now daily....lots of great schwag this year - we think everyone will be stoked with what you receive! Pre-registering guarantees your correct shirt size, saves you $5 bucks and will have your boogie bag awaiting you at check in and we will send a waiver in advance to you to save time at check-in.

A note on pre-registration - pre-registration is at unprecedented numbers - all are encouraged to register to ensure your spot with all the fun!

On a final note, we will be starting a new tradition at this year's event for years to come - beginning Thursday thru Sunday, we will be bringing in the star spangled banner on Load 1 of each day to set the tone of how privileged we are to enjoy such an amazing sport in an amazing country.

That's all for now!

Re: [swhuffman96] CarolinaFest 2010 - Skydive Carolina [In reply to] Can't Post

Chuck: welcome back amigo! We've got lots planned for this year! Will be good to see you again.

swhuffman96: Look forward to meeting you. We do have lots of people coming in from all over the place especially from the ATL area.

For those that are flying in and are not renting a car, let us know as we may be able to assist with getting you a ride in. At the very least we will be using Carolina Cab Co: http://www.carolinascab.com/.

Boogie News: final design on tee shirts have been submitted and we'll be seeing them next week. Ladies, we've got women's cut tees for you as well.

Aircraft: We are adding a third aircraft to the lineup to handle overflow from the Casa and Otter. Aircraft type to be announced this week.

Helicopter: We do need minimum registration numbers for the helicopter to fly. The heli is scheduled to fly on Saturday morning of the event. It's not atypical to receive registrations as we get closer to the event, but we'd like to have minimums shored up sooner than later. If considering it, please register here: http://www.carolinafestboogie.com/...om/Registration.html

Freefly Coaching Rob, Tuck and Dave will be on hand for the entire week for freefly coaching. If you'd like to get with one of the guys to up your skills, all info, pricing and scheduling can be found here: http://tinyurl.com/33lqyce

RW Coaching: Jan Lane will be offering individual one on one RW coaching for an inexpensive coaching rate aside from load organizing.
