"Wigs on Fire" Weekend in SoCal! Can't Post

Host: Tunnel Pink Mafia's SoCal division presents
"Wigs on Fire" a skydiving, tunnel flying, hair cutting event for The Locks of Love Foundation

Location: Skydive Elsinore 2/18/06
Skyventure Perris 2/19/06
(We can hit both of our favorite SoCal DZs this weekend!)

When: President's Day weekend 2/18/06 - 2/19/06
(The 17th and the 20th can be travel days for the ladies from out of the state.)

Why: To donate hair to be made into wigs for children with alopecia, cancer and other medical hair loss
Hair donations must be 10" in length or more and kept in a ponytail or braid when donated. Hair must not be gray. It can be colored, but it cannot be damaged.

~ A special prize will be given to the person, who donates the most hair in length. ~

What: Skydive at Skydive Elsinore with free coaching by Elsinore's Excel coaches is offered all weekend. Jonathan Tagle's Flight-1 canopy skills course will also be offered this weekend. (Must pre-register for this camp.) Hair cutting/styling by Crystal for Locks of Love will take place right on the DZ (Elsinore). Pink Mafia sky initiations are available, as well, by Melanie Curtis. A skills seminar will take place on Saturday evening with pizza (or other food) and more possible night time fun...stay tuned!

Skyventure Perris tunnel sessions to take place on Sunday, 2/19/06. RW and freefly/freestyle sessions are both available, either for coached mini-camps or for more casual tunnel mixers. Just let us know, and we'll set it up. First time body flyers and first time tunnel visitors are welcome to join us, and the Barbie helmet is back for Tunnel Pink Mafia initiations.

Party: We will be having a party on one of the nights mentioned and the theme will be "Wigs on Fire". We encourage the wearing of wild or sexy WIGS and HATS. There will be mucho grooving to the music and plenty of jello shots to be had.

Just be there: Hair donations for Locks of Love are desired, but not necessary to join in on the fun of the weekend. We encourage men, as well as the women, to donate or to join in on our flying or night-time fun.

Contact: Rosa at either Rosa@PinkMafiaTunnel.com or Vanillaskygirl@Dropzone.com (or via PM)

You get the picture...BE THERE!

Cool

Hehehe...Blush

No worries, my friend. You can always donate monetary contributions to the Locks of Love foundation and/or partake in our "Wigs on Fire" weekend of skydiving, tunnel flying and other night-time activities. Just being there to show your support by flying and hanging out with the Mafia ladies is all that we ask. The hair and monetary donations to the Locks of Love foundation is voluntary, not required of all of our weekend friends.

So will we see you there? Smile

Hey everyone ~
I have a firedancer (male) friend of mine, who will be there on Saturday night with some drummers. I am going to look into possibly getting a DJ to spin for us, as well. Iwan, Pat (DZ camera man), Kelly (firedancer/camera man) and many others will be filming for us, and I will be around to take pictures.

There are quite a few new people coming, but I am going to wait until I have a more updated list to post. Thanks everyone! Smile

It's going to be a rockin' Elsinore weekend all-around! Along with the Excel FS skills camp, we also have a Flight-1 Canopy skills course with Jonathan Tagle happening that weekend too. For more info on anything happening that weekend, feel free to email me at mel@skydiveelsinore.com.

And of course we will obviously have Rosa's awesome event that she has put so much work into making happen. Come on out to support a great cause! The skydiving and partying are a bonus! Wink

See you there!

Mel, you're awesome, girl. Thanks! Smile

Ok everyone~
I am getting PMs about rides, contact numbers, etc. Is there any way that we can post on this thread to see who needs rides/can offer rides and on what dates/what times. Also, we can find out who needs roomies and who can offer a room/bed in their room/place? I want to know if people will be around on Friday night or first thing on Saturday. How long is everyone staying? Does anyone need a roommate? Who needs tunnel time reserved? What kind of tunnel session(s) (RW, FF, first time?) would you like?

Btw, Moo will be our DJ for the evening, so please PM me music requests. Thanks everyone! Smile

Whoops! I have no concrete plans. I was tentatively planning to offer more skydiving at Elsinore on Sunday morning, tunnel in the afternoon and dinner/drinks at the Bombshelter on Sunday night. I assumed that people were staying Sunday because it's a long weekend.

We can definitely arrange a morning or late morning tunnel flying session, though. I am not jumping, and I can easily go to the tunnel at any time on Sunday. Also, Erin is making herself available for us at the time that we prefer. Let me know a time, and I'll make it happen. Smile

*Beth, we can also go to the tunnel on Saturday afternoon. Krissy cannot make it on Sunday, so if you'd like...we can do a quick session on Saturday for the two of you. Smile
