Dublin 2007:March 14-18:Dublin,Ga
Information will be added to this post as it becomes available.Post questions regarding the boogie here. There is a dedicated board at RoamingDZ.com that will have more detailed information
There are alot of things still in the works so please bear with me.I will start additional topic threads for certain areas of information at RoamingDZ.com to make it easier to find(hotels,camping,big way,4-way and such).You can also find info in the threads from last year at the bottom of the forum page at RoamingDZ.com.Please look for information before e-mailing or PMing me.
As I am completely unorganized right now this post will be edited as more info becomes available.
Thats right kids we're going back for a fourth year.Amazing after the car burning incident.The aircraft lineup is as follows.The Super Kingair from Skydive Atlanta will start out the lineup mid week.If there are people there we will start flying on Wednesday.Next to show will be a Super Otter from Cross Keys on Thursday afternoon with the Skyvan from Skydive Deland showing on Friday (I received word on March 6th that the Skyvan would not be coming to the event.) A second Super Otter from Skydive Spaceland will be arriving on Thursday afternoon. Sorry,no Casas were available.
The chopper will be returning and the balloons will be back also.Nightly entertainment will be announced and we have found an awesome source for firewood so the bonfire will be legendary.We will be operating RoamingDZ Radio again this year so you will be able to tune into manifest anywhere on the airport and as far away as Wal-Mart.
Obviously we will be offering tandems.The tandems will be handled by JR sides and his wife Kathy from Skydive Chambersburg.Their contact info is at SkydiveDublin.com if you have someone wanting to do a tandem or you are a tandem master wanting to work.We will also offer AFF and supervision for people with lower jump numbers.
Food again this year will be provided by Scotty and Tammi of The Carbone Zone along with the local E.A.A. chapter serving burgers and hot dogs during the day.
The whole organizing thing is still up in the air right now.I have some things working but I'd rather wait to post.I hope to make the organizers easier to find this year.Be on the lookout for raft dives,hoop dives,big ways,SCRs,maybe even some of Andys mystery dives.I'm sure you can find a way to amuse yourselves.
We will be holding meet number 1 of the Georgia Skydiving League on Sat the 17th.The meet will be held out of the Otter this year.I hope to have teams from surrounding states come to participate so please help spread the word.In addition there will be a VRW meet. I'll get Eric Deren to post info on this.
More info on all of this plus info on hotels,private packing tents,big ways,poker tournament,raffle/give aways,manufacture attendance,RV slots,balloon slots and Pre-registration will be posted in other threads.
Oh,one more thing.Daylight savings time starts on March 11 this year.So the days will be longer for the boogie this year.Yes,the RoamingDZ has that mush clout. Now back to your regularly scheduled programing.
Edit: Hotel Info
Ok,talked to the hotel today.Seems people are getting a little greedy.Best The Best Western would do this year is $64 a night which is about what Psycho Bob posted the other day for the Ramada Inn.The address is 2121 S.Highway 441.Phone number is 478-275-2650.I would make reservations now.Please mention the skydiver rate when you call or you might not get a room.They blocked us 50 rooms.We can block more if those fill up.Again I say Make Your Reservations Now!!!!
RoamingDZ.com We are all here to SKYDIVE! You are coming to the Dublin Boogie,right??
