"Florida Freefly Club" Can't Post

Hey gang....a bunch of us were talking one day, as we were sitting around waiting to get enough people to fly a load, about a traveling group of freefliers within FL. How AWESOME would it be to meet a bunch of friends, at a preselected dropzone, on a preselected weekend and know that loads would fly and/or you'd just have other fliers to jump with?

We are very lucky living in FL with it's vast array of great dropzones. But without the people to fly with and/or to get the loads up - we're almost lost. So if we get this little "club" up and running (which by the way is not really a "club" persay, because you won't really join and there is no limitations as to who can come play Smile - you'll just be part of the group that gets together once a month) then we ALL benefit.

Now we just need to start the ball rolling (thanks once again to Sangiro) so here we go........How about we start with Lake Wales, the weekend of the 21st. Who is game? Would love to hear your thoughts on the whole idea. I think I've summed up the thoughts and ideas behind it so let's talk people............

That sounds like a great idea, D! I know there is a group of RW fliers that have been meeting in Deland once a month to do big ways. I think they have an e-mail system going to let people what is going on. If they can do it, we can too! Cool

You and Jason SHOULD move to FL - weather is much nicer year round then where you are Wink and we have SO MANY choices on where to play in the sky.

This really is a GREAT idea and I just planted the seed - but am not the brain child. Just have to get the idea and "club" up and running.

See you soon~

Sounds awesome! Now that I'm here, count me inCool So far I've mainly been jumping at Deland and last weekend I checked out Lakes Wales. I've been to Zhills several times, however the weather didn't cooperate. I still want to check out Sebastian and Titusville.

WOW.....I'm not really sure. Tampa and Orlando are PROBABLY both about 1.5 hours away. There is an airport in Sanford but I don't think it is big. Already know Delta flies into Melbourne but that is WAY out of the way for many. You'll have to do some sort of search but doesn't this sound like a great idea. Just want to get a committed group of folks willing to travel and make jumps so we can all benefit Wink See ya soon - off to Rantoul in less than 12 hours

Maybe this group should also get together and split some tunnel time? If it ever comes together, let me and T know and we'll totally fly down from nyc
FFFC is a great idea.

D. Woman and I will be in NY that weekend, we can probably make the next month after that though. Lake Wales is a great DZ too, it's one of my favorites in the state.

Well I'm glad to see people are taking a liking to the idea...now we just have to wait and see what this week brings for Lake Wales after Hurricane Charley stopped for an uninvited visit.

I got in from Rantoul last night after sitting in the airport all day and even at night - was amazed at the MESS Orlando was. It's storming where I am now or I'd be in the car going to help Lake Wales.

Everyone keep your eyes and ears posted so we can help Lake Wales and get this little idea rolling. Hope to see and or talk to everyone soon.

Hugs...Be safe ~ D

Re: [sunnydee123] "Florida Freefly Club" [In reply to] Can't Post

Seeing as how Lake Wales was going to be our first "club gathering" spot, we thought perhaps it would be best to post-pone this weekend until Lake Wales is back up to speed. Of course we want to support the DZ any way possible so as soon as they are ready for us, we'll be there.....if not sooner.

For now, thanks for the support of the FFC idea. Keep it and Lake Wales in your thoughts!

Well I should have phrased that differently " Where's the DZ to be in Florida ?" heh that being said it looks like that damn hurricane is zeroed in on south florida so my ass is staying in texas for an extra week. Hmm how far it is again from houston to richmond? Smile
