Emerald Coast Beach Boogie - Memorial Day Weekend!! Can't Post

If you haven't blocked out the time for this beach boogie, definitely do so!!! I went to it last year and Emerald Coast Skydiving Center in Elberta, AL (on the FL/AL state line) do an awesome job. There are beach jumps all day throughout the boogie and they are very reasonable in comparison to other beach jumps I've done. We land at local hot spots such as Lillian Pizza and Flora-Bama! They treat us like rockstars..shuttle service to/from the beach. We have every discipline such as RW, Freefly, CRW, Wingsuits, Swooping (of course)...everything over the Gulf of Mexico...absolutely beautiful!

Right now it'll probably be the caravan but I am going to see if MD can get an Otter or the Caravan and the Porter.

Last year most people flew into Pensacola and stayed on the beach near the Bama. I can't remember the name of that condo right now... Johnny? You would probably know.

Bolas - I don't just ride the short bus I'm the driver! TongueLaugh

Fly into Pensecola (PNS) I think that half of the Pensecola Regional Airport Staff are all skydivers.
The condo next to the Florabama is the Phoenix X.
There are two more beside it, but I can't think of the names. I think one is the Flamingo.
Book through Brett Robinson Vacation Rentals.
Walking distance from the Flora Bama.
Sunset load to the beach, party at the bama and stagger, I mean walk, to the condo.
Sleep and repeat.

The condos are kind of pricy, but will hold a good many people to share the cost. If there are any left.
Most people camp at the DZ or sleep in the packing room.
So far I think that myself, Mike and Ashley will be getting there on thursday this year.
This will be my 6th consectutive year.

Just wandering... what are the actual dates? How much are jumps going to cost? How much is the registration fee and does it include anything? And last but not least, are there places to camp for cheap asses like myself that don't want to pay for a hotel? Thanks

From their website www.emeraldskydive.com

May 26 - 29: The ECSC Annual Memorial Day Beach Boogie! It should be a great boogie this year! $20 registration, $20 DZ jumps, and $22 beach jumps. We will provide transportation to the DZ from the beach. Make plans now to come out and help us kick off the summer with a bang!

There is camping at the DZ. It's not an expensive boogie. They usually even feed you lunch on Saturday.
I usually describe this as going to visit a friend at his house near the beach, and he has a turbine airplane in his back yard and he takes you up to skydive onto the beach in front of an awesome bar.
Its not your typical boogie.
