Zhills this weekend - $1000 up for grabs! twice! Can't Post

Hi All,

Just a last minute reminder of the 4 Way Speed Star Competition at Skydive City. This competition is all about SPEED. The fastest 4 way speed team will split a CASH prize of $1000. The overall fastest diver of the competition will walk away with $1000 in CASH.

This is for ALL skydivers. Flat, Head Down, Video, CRW, Style..DRESS FOR SUCCESS. You can wear any kind of suit you want. The judge doesnt care if your 4 way star is flat, Head Down, or on its side.

This is a 4 round competition with a different diver on each round


The event is scheduled to take place on Saturday, July 1st and will continue on the 2nd only if needed to complete all 4 rounds.

The cost per person is 4 regular price jump tickets and $20. The CASH prizes for this is from Sponsors, not your wallet.

Manifest will be open at 8AM so that you can get registered and do any other paperwork. There will be a briefing to go over the Rules and then it will start right away.

We will have pool video, but some of them are competing (camera suits!), so if you have your own video person, bring em.


I have attached the Official Rules for this competition.

Come over for FUN. Go home with CASH!

it gets a little more complex than that, believe it or not. haha!!

tons of people can dive fast and hard, but being able to stop on a dime and complete AND HOLD the round...that's the trick. to do this, folks have been training with camera suits (wings) and such.

the hardcore RW folks thinkthey are gonna win. the freeflyers think they will win on their heads. it's so sweet!!

the coolest part of this whole thing is that (i think) a few skydivers kicked in the cash and said 'here. let's give back to the sport and make this shit fun!'. so there's no registration fee or any of that shit. it's just you go there, pay for your 4 jump tickets plus the money for your video guy and that's it.

huge props to mike and patty woods for putting this thing into action. you can say what you want, but zhills definitely is one awesome dz. where else can you just show up and win $1000 and possibly $1200?

How about some wingsuits? Cool

Would they change the rules to allow an open formation with grips? Stars are kinda hard to do. Tongue

i bet if you said you'd show up and do 4-way with wingsuits with 3 intact grips, the judges will say hell yeah. Cool

then maybe try this:

1 wingsuiter
1 belly flyer
1 freeflyer
1 CRW dog
1 video of that cluster. Tongue

this is like a battle royale (sorta like the royale with cheese, only different)

OREN!!! next new event: 4-way scrambles with a person from each discipline.

bring it.
(thanks for the idea, bolas!) TongueLaugh

Paul Meagher was the big winner with the fastest time of 16. something seconds.

His team with Billy Porter,Tony Hathaway and Boxman took the team money.
Everybody had a blast and we got all 4 rounds of 8 teams done by early afternoon.
Then we drank much beerLaugh

Hey Z-hills peeps!

My dad emailed me an article from the Tampa Trib about the event.

A few photos. Cute little write-up.

The file is too large to attach. I'll try again when I'm not about to fall over. LaughTongue

what about billy? i heard he could've taken it if he wanted to, but knew that tracy wanted to shop for zani instead... TongueSly

anyway, those bitch-ass penguins would've just taken the money from him had he won it....
