Z TEAM 200 WAY WORLD RECORD Can't Post

To all Team Members:
We are on schedule and looking sweet as candy for our 4th world record sequential. We have numerous sponsors onboard and more on the way.

Looks like we are going to be able to refund money to the team since fuel prices are still low and we have replaced 3 CASAs with 4 Super Otters. Stay tuned.

Info and updates on the team are at: www.skydivecity.com and www.guywright.com

Stay safe, positive and current.

Anyone looking to be added to our extensive jumper data base for future events can email Guy Wright at: blskyguy@aol.com

To All Team Members:
I am being asked to book tunnel times for a number of players before and during the 200 way. If your interested you need to email me asap: blskyguy@aol.com and I will work it out. As a prefered tunnel coach they are giving me very low rates. It's all about the Team.

Also, The Crystal Springs INN is the place to stay for the 200 ways. The quality Inn is also ok.

Re: [Wright] Z TEAM 200 WAY WORLD RECORD [In reply to] Can't Post

latest update from our web page:

The morning started slower than usual, morning fog and smoke made some visibility questionable. The big formation (160+) has already been rehearsed and dirt-dived so the teams were ready to go. But they were still ironing out issues with the base three airplanes so another practice round of 3 planes, 3 planes and 2 planes went to 17500' about 9:30am.

The big way did one more dirt dive, just in time for the clouds to roll in. As of 3pm today, the base went up for one more jump, and the outside folks are on a stand-down until 4pm. We expect our first attempt to be 5pm today for 8 aircraft, 19000' and a single point skydive of 160+.

On the down side of the day, Russian skydiver Kirill Samotsvetov, 39 years old, died of his injuries while in surgery in Tampa yesterday. He caught the burble of another canopy on the first jump Monday, and landed very hard. Initial injuries were tended to, broken legs, foot, etc and he was airlifted out to St. Joseph's hospital in Tampa. They discovered critical internal injuries (aorta) and he went into surgery but did not survive the operation to repair it all.

Other Russian skydivers, Igor Yurash of Moscow and Vlad Camaev of New York deserve a medl for their tireless efforts to help notify the family, and are helping to make the funeral and transportation arrangements for Kirill's wife. The Russian Consulate in Washington DC is also helping out and things appear to be moveing along.

Are they sticking with 160ish or are they going to add later for the 200?

OK, it sounds critical, but spending $1075 to be included in a 200 way record sounds expensive to me, especially since every time I've seen this advertised, it never builds. Manifest me for the next 300 way out of a formation flight of 727's that cancel and it turns into an 80 way out of a flock of 182's. Set the hype aside, be honest with your clientele, and set reasonable expectations. Had a great 4 point 80 way dude. There's a lot of gullible egos out there who'll part with the bucks for fame & glory, but if you want my money, you have to deliver.

1. You don't know what you are talking about.
2. You made a cascade of false statements.
3. I have a lot of respect for TK. None for an anonymous poster who doesn't have the balls to stand behind what they type.

They still got a world record dude, so the fame and glory still goes to all who participated. My guess is you didn't. So shut up. Not every big way attempt actually completes with the original advertised number. People get cut, planes break down, etc. They still beat the old record handily AFAIK.

I's OK if you do not want to participate. There apparently were 160 others that did. Your choice is yours.

Re: [happythoughts] Z TEAM 200 WAY WORLD RECORD [In reply to] Can't Post

False statements? If you advertise a 200 way world record attempt and get a nice 2 Pt. 140 way instead of a 200 way, no world record. You have to reach the specified target goal. 2 points on a 140 way is certainly an accomplishment, but not the declared goal.
