The website mentions a jet, but doesn't say anything about a helicopter. Is there any news on jump prices for the specialty aircraft?

No prices on specialty aircraft yet...

Registration will only be open until 8pm on Friday, so just make sure you register the next morning if you come in too late.

Yeah, and what's the *real* forecast for the boogie looking like? Not sure I trust weather.com.

Well we are a week out until Couch Freaks.

Do we have ticket prices yet for the regular aircraft as well as the specialty aircraft? If not do you have an idea on when a final price will be determined?

Any word on the Jet yet?

Hey Shellybelly!

I'm coming in Wednesday night.

Would it be possible to rent a rig and gear for the whole event, since I'll be there "early"?

Thx Much!
Deb

Lots of high places to camp in Ft. Dodge. Good thing too! I see on the Today show this morning that they are working hard to keep the levy intact in Ft. Dodge. Anybody know how to google earth for the Des. Moines River in that area?
Good news is, the storms that come thru this afternoon are supposed to be the last for a while, so we'll all have time to dry out before Wednesday.
And I know those crazy Couch Freaks well enough to know that they will be partying come Hell or High Water.

That would fall into crazy freaky. It would have been cool if it was a naked jump.

Man I almost grabbed my vid for that load, this year everythings on vid.

Do you know of anyone who does have video of that load? I spent the next several days at the hospital with friends, and I was told there was video out there, but never saw it. If anyone does have any, I would love to take some back to the guys who are on the video. I am sure they would love to see it, and would really appreciate it.

Well it starts in just over 2 days.

Any word on jump ticket prices for the normal planes as well as the specialty aircraft? Also any word on the Jet?

I'm trying to figure out if the trip is in my budget.

Thanks

if they haven't told us by now, I'm kinda worried. We might show up and it will have turned out to be $35 per normal jump ticket! Shocked

Jesus Christ! Yeah, that would be just like those Freaks, the ol bait and switch. They'll price slots at whatever covers their cost, etc. I've been informed that the tandem concession is the only thing on the airport that is doing anything more than breaking even (for the club). So, show up, pay your money, shut up, and JUMP!
