3 Norway, 2 Japan, 1 Brits, 8 USA and about 10 on the list. After we accomplish the records. We will have the big load with the hearing ( SISO ) Silent inside and Sound outside on the base Sorry the hearing cant talk in the air but we can and we can talk with the food in our mouths Freefall Freddie
Yes What Mads said 3 of us will be there. Tommy and B.. something I missplace thier name on the list. Other one from Arizion name is Wile Coyote. One from San Marcos I have met the guy Richard or Robert something at the Deaf Expo. He has about 20 jumps. I suggest him to email us at www.deafskydivers.org , but never hear from him since about last year. I should ask him for his email address. I will send out the deaf community soon and I belive we will get a lot of deafie tandems. Last March 14 deafie Tandems and Some of them like to make an other tandem jumps at DWR. Peace and Silent Freefall, Fred
We usal host the DWR in the Fall. We will host the DWR on Oct. 25-28 2007. It will biggest events with 1-2 nite jumps with full moon and high alt. and SISO. TV Media will be there. Let us show the worlds. Silent Freefall, Fred
They're seriously missing my ability to recruit and communicate with the group... But seriously, I just don't have the time to be involved, nor do I have the currency in recent jumps (only 3 jumps made this year)...
But that's not the only reason. Others can't attend for personal reasons. I suspect some of the European skydivers felt like the next DWR would be in Europe. Even I said it at the last DWR. Others are too busy in their lives or have events going on that conflict with DWR. Mike Sweet's having a wedding this fall around that time, and Cat is participating in a friend's wedding. Others in the past have not jumped lately.
You should still try to go anyway. Every DWR has had at least a couple of deaf skydivers that had little experience and did not jump on the records, but still appreciated being around a lot of deaf skydivers. Many of them ended up being a record holder at the next event.
Next time though, my little girl will be big enough that I can get out and jump a bit more, that is, unless we have another kid.
Maybe not many this year cuz of 2 hurts , 2 wedding, 3 brits not coming till we show up there. 3 new divers will be here. 2 new from other country. We will have about 12 and plus not hear from others. I belive there will be a lot of Tandems jumps cuz of my annoucments in the deaf commumity. I belive there will be more deaf intrest in that sport in the future. We will have the discount jump's ticket for us and the hearing. Hope it will help us out cuz of the fuels..... We not Bull cuz they wear the ear's plugs ! Fred
I plan to be there.. but I won't be jumping...as for DWR in Europe.. nice idea but it would help if we all flew same airline and instead of everyone buying a ticket for them self we do a group buy say? 10 or 15 people. you can get a cheaper rate that way...
Huh! Nope I dint get your email and some have tried to email me. Dunno ..Not shown on my spam block. We will update you and others profile on our website. I got about 10 who want to learn skydive. I belive the deaf community help us a lot cuz the hearing magzines or papers not help much cuz they are not membership. I will publish more in Deaf networks, Deaf newspapers, and others. You can spread the words in your diffrent groups. About 15,000 deaf have look up our website deafskydivers.org Silent Freefall, Fred
