Free 20'X30' tent on DZ row at the WFFC Can't Post

I have been able to talk the convention into letting me give away a couple of the tents on DZ row to groups of skydivers that bring their entire DZ (or just about) to the WFFC. I don't know what will be a fair way to do this so I want to hear your ideas. Sorry but this will not be for the groups that already have there yearly spots saved but for a couple of new groups. How will I do this? mmm

So General Skydiving is now "WFFC free advertising?"

Fleahop, there's nothing wrong with posting general stuff about the WFFC here. But what you are doing is getting very close to advertising. Please don't use this forum to 'sell' the WFFC.

I did not realize that i was doing something wrong. I would never intentionally miss use this or any other forum. Is there a better place to ask this? Please let me know.

Thanks Fleahop

>Is there a better place to ask this?

For stuff pertaining _directly_ to the WFFC, the Events section is a better place to post; that's where people go to read about upcoming events like the WFFC. For more general items (like "do people like jumping AN-2's?" this is a good place.

There is a group of 10(for starters) of us coming from the uk, all from one dz that would love a tent, hell we would pay towards it... Bear in mind just to be there we are paying at least $1200 US each just to fly to chicago and back.

What do we have to do for this tent?

Thanks,
You may as well keep us in our own corner eh!

First thing we would do is buy some couches and show you yanks how to drink some real beer.
We are brining a adventure travel journalist for a major uk paper with us who now has around 70 jumps, a couple of kiwis(including myself) and the rest will be brits. As soon as the weather gets better over here we will be at the dz recruiting more for the trip. A tent would be well appreciated as would also give us somewhere to sleep so would not have to buy a whole lot of roofs over our heads when getting to chicago.

Would like it very much if we could be considered for a tent.Smile

Ya this is the kind of stuff I am looking for. I think it is great when others puts there 2 cents worth in on it. I don't get a thing out of this I just want to see a good group of people have some fun.

Well, if there is a couple to give...

i vote that bigway's group gets 1, then RoamingDZ gets the other!!!

if by chance I get to attend, i would like to have a special place to call "home"

which, of course, would be in the RoamingDZ tent!!!

I vote for either the Roaming DZ and/or Skydive the Farm (Lots of Cross over either way).

I would be glad to help organize a few Social Events for either group if they had a tent.

Roaming DZ definitely would bring in a lot of people.

As for the Farm.. I know I am bringing several Jumpers from there with me and if we had our tent, I am sure I could talk quite a few others into coming.

While I appreciate the vote if there is only one tent I think it should be a Dropzone.com tent.If there is more than one I think there should be a list of candidates and this should be turned into a poll.I also think this should be done quickly so we can make plans and promote.

I would only be able to be there the last half but Jello-Jay has offered to entertain the RoamingDZ crowd for the first half.

Hey...I'd go for a RoamingDZ tent, too.

RoamingDZ has a large following and would bring in that many more jumpers, too.

I may or not be liked on these forums.... ok so 6 bans of the forums, well, i am not the greatest typist....However you give the UK a tent and it will be a whole new era. I have spoken to so many people as at the same time the uk do this thing called the russia boogie, everyone pisses off to russia. The thing is when they ask where i am going i say the WFFC, they say "what is that"?

Yes, you should give roaming dz a tent first but if you got two you should give one to the UK, the reason is, because it is WORLD freefall convention, don't keep it like the WORLD baseball etc where only america is involved.
You give a BPA tent up and you this year you may only have 10-20 people occupying it but we get to come home put an article in our magazine and next year it might be 20-30 of us and so on each year, if that does not make sense to you, get someone who knows marketing to talk to me.

My point is to you, if you want to let this grow again, involve others, make them feel special so they can tell everybody.

I went to Eloy for xmas, there must have been no less than 20 jumpers on the plane alone, and i noticed when we got to eloy, all the brits seemed to stay together for better or worse. You give a Brit tent or even an international tent and that way you are telling other countries that you are trying to include them.
If that does not make sense to you, well good luck on your american freefall convention. You want something to grow instead of dying again, then talk to me and we will make this a WORLD freefall convention. Yes i may sound arrogant, but if you have anything to do with this boogie you will also know that i am making a shit load of sense.

Whatever the outcome, i dont really care, i just cant wait to get there.

You could have a "RoamingDZ goes to England" tent at the WFFC, with pints of ale, meat pies, and its own portable cloud generator. To make it properly realistic, you'll need a bunch of ex-Army types making everyone sign off on a beerline check for their buddy.

That post was never meant for anyone specific... it was a last drunk hurrahh for a tent.

Spence, dude, i got a little 1 man tent i can put up in my back yard for you any day mate.

I promise you all none of our crew are ex-militaryWink

I like the sound of roaming dz meets england, we could have a british theme there where there is no jumping for the whole week cause of hangovers, then we could have a night off the piss to be fresh for the rain the next day.

How about .... "International embassy" or "United Drunk Nations"

Anyway, half the group will be there to help set up on the 17th and 18th, really looking forward to this.

What is roamingdz anyway? Sounds like a bunch of homless skydivers, how do we join?
