Marco Island, FL Beach Boogie Can't Post

Feb 10-13, 2005

Whether you are looking to make 2 or 20 jumps come join us on the Gulf Coast of Florida.

Norman Kent will be shooting stills and video of of our jumps. If you missed getting a Norman Kent photo of yourself during the World Freefall Convention, this is your chance as he will be available for anyone interested! Keep in mind Norman will not be charging for the jump just for any photos you wish to order!!

Look for our ad in Parachutist

More info coming soon @

Well I just had my first taste of a beach boogie at the Keys, and there is definitely nothing more beautiful than flying a wingsuit over the coast and landing your parachute on beach sand. I will be there. Cool

Can't be sure I have the right airport, but I used Mapquest and Terraserver to make these pictures. Looks to be about 7 miles (8.5 by road) from the Marco Island Radisson to the "Marco Island Executive Airport" (actually located in Naples).

YES, I have too much time on my hands. Blush

Wow, a boogie on Marco Island! Man, that place is absolutely beautiful!! I used to go out there for a long weekend back in the day when I wanted to get away from the craziness of Miami. It's so chill and low key there. Hope I can make it.

Here are a couple of photos from a few years back during sunset at Marco Island Beach.

Count me and Pyke in I'll be out of my cast by then. My folks live on Marco and I go there every few months for vacation. If anyone is curious what the beach looks like there are live webcams on the internet.

I can also probably hook up some boats and jet ski's as rescue vehicles in case anyone goes into the drink!Tongue The water is extremely shallow anyway so if you do go in JUST STAND UPWink

I am not ignoring your questions. I am waiting for the DZO to give me final details to post on the website. Once I have them I will post them here as well. (Hopefully by the end of Thursday)

We have seen quite a bit of interest and look forward to seeing everyone on the beach.

HoldonholdonholdON! I was starting to plan a ski trip for that weekend... but a beach boogie sounds sooooooooooooooooo much warmer! And cheaper..
May have to re-formulate this plan...

Well now I *have* to come to help you and Pam celebrate your anniversary.. get you nice and drunk and then lock you in your room! Wink

My friend Casie is going to come from Austin, since I'm more or less cancelling her ski trip.. heheeh..

I doubt it will take much arm twisting to get Spence and his crew down, but if you need help just let me know.. Angelic

Looks like Plaything and I will be there.. It's in the middle of the busy season at work but I think those 4 days are sort of tweener days.. and since it's only a 4-hour drive.. Wink

Did I hear someone whisper about carnage-creating hybrids over the gulf? Shocked
