serious headdown bigways Can't Post

At the Gravity Rats Freefly Competition in May we want to put together some bigger headdown dives. We are looking for a head count of experienced freefliers who will be there, and feel qualified to fly with grips on 8 ways or 10 ways
we plan to start with 4 ways and move up to larger groups

Count on The Rats being there ( Bryan, Sean, and Robert ) and an excellent flyer from San Marcos named Paul Mann

who's coming from Houston, Dallas, Elsewhere?



we want to plan and design these dives in advance to make full use of our short time.

Not trying to set any records - really just learn to fly controlled slots and docks and get ready for the Mac Daddy deal in Dallas

That is awsome, besure to post video of those jumps! Maybe in another year or two I'll be able to get in on stuff like this. Smile

Jed and I are thinking about swinging down if I can get off work that weekend. But we suck, so you'll have to talk slow and keep it simple!

Dereck (Goat) and I will be there (not that I'll be ready by May - but I have been participating in the big way skills camps...).
I believe Jon McCollum and Brandon will be down also.
Of course you can't count them in based on what I say - but, they should be there Smile

Did a four point four way with Jon and Brandon at the Spaceland deal. I know the Goat is solid. Can't wait to meet Deva.

If we can get some of Levin's friends to play.....


As for Trent and Jed. #1 - you don't suck and #2 - we're gonna organize some less hairy stuff too. No worries

So Robert Smith - how many people ask you if you're in the Cure?

Where in Austin do you live?

Deva- That is too funny.

Almost every conversation I get into these days -privately- mention Moffet and Robert Smith. Sean Simon says for me to snag Robert for some help. Goat- is my special friend however... I would love to get with him up in Dallas some Friday and jump our butts of to get me straight. It wouldnt take too much. It hasnt been that long since I broke my leg and laid off for a while.

Just got back from Project Horizon in Lake Elsinore and learned more than my brain could possibly hold. There was so much outstanding talent there it was unbelievable. I will bring as much as I can remember with me. Also have dive flows and videos from the event, everything from cool piece turning 4-ways to a bad ass 16-way from about 17,000 feet.

Go Big...

now that wasn't very nice. even though i know where this remark is coming from, it is out of line. If you are looking to start a flame war with him then maybe you should support that statement with some facts. but to say it just like you did isn't very cool.

Sorry Ann, I know what this is about too. You know I calls 'em as I sees 'em. I agree with Levin that that remark was way uncool. Let's not air our personal stuff in a public forum.

This is going off next weekend (17-19 may) right?
I wanna come up and play and watch, and check out San Marcos. But I'm way off joining you all for the big ways...
Besides, by the sound of it, there will be nobody left at Spaceland to play with.....
