Not many of us post on here. I don't think I'm going to be able to attend this one. Frown

I am not even in the planning loop with John and Fred. They are doing everything themselves. I have too much to do at home these days. I am gonna miss you guys this time though.

I don't think the dates have been announced or confirmed yet. I've been told several possibilities ranging from Labor Day weekend to the last weekend in October.

Fred, make a decision and announce it soon. People got to make their travel plans soon.

Re: [BillyVance] DWR 2007 [In reply to] Can't Post

  Yes Smile 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. Smile Peace and Silent Freefall, Fred

They're seriously missing my ability to recruit and communicate with the group... Tongue 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)... Unsure

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. Smile

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. Tongue

Re: [FlyinDawg] DWR 2007 [In reply to] Can't Post

   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..... Crazy We not Bull cuz they wear the ear's plugs ! Sly Fred

You send profile info to John Woo or me. Right now it's me, since John is in the middle of a month-long vacation to his birthplace of China. Smile

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...

Re: [BillyVance] DWR 2007 [In reply to] Can't Post

 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 Cool Silent Freefall, Fred

Re: [TommyAndre] DWR 2007 [In reply to] Can't Post

Tommy, I am happy to see you post here and to find out that there are three deaf skydivers in Norway!

This website should help you get started. http://www.skydivespaceland.com/

I am unfortunately not able to attend this time after co-organizing the last three deaf world records. Unsure

I hope you three will have a great time! Also, be sure to keep in touch with Fred Goebel, who posts on here as goesky, on anything you need.

Blue Skies
Billy
