GRAVITY RAT EVOLUTION: November 9-11, 2007 Can't Post

GRAVITY RAT FREEFLY REVOLUTION, Revolution, revolution, evolution, Evolution, EVOLUTION.



We ran out of dropzones to host the hottest event of the season, so we started our own.

Come be a part of the evolution, the grand opening of the new Gravity Rat Skydiving Center.

This dropzone, started by fun jumpers and run by fun jumpers, is for jumpers to have FUN (***its a new concept- patent pending). This year there will be no contests and no prizes, just good people, sick jumps, video cameras, Gravity Rat numbers and of course lots of BOOZE.


This is Revolution #5. We dedicate this event to our brother Chris Saline, Gravity Rat #5.

He talked about putting a DZ on this airport many years ago. Now look.....

Smithville Airport

Spread the word.

What we do

Don't forget our winged rats being organized by Mr. Bob Futrell.
He will have about 8 or more demo wing suits on hand to do big-ways or coaching.

Also Mr. Scott "Douva" Lewis of Team L.A.S.T. will have beginner boards for anyone who would like to experiment with skysurfing.

Last but not least, Texas' own Mr. Mike Inabinet will be organizing belly flyers for small to large formation training and coaching.

Do I hear hybrid skydives? Maybe some VSCR's?

Stay tuned for more details.....

or there is a state park around the corner (Buescher State Park 512-389-8900) or you can crash in the hanger, or in your truck, or with Casey.

So-I have made it to every Revolution and I have yet to wear any of the tee-shirts. You just don't make them small enough. I am sure the boys will agree, baby doll tanks will look great on all of the female Rats!!

The airport manager has approved us camping out and pitching tents.
Robert has kindly enough mowed a very nice grassy area for people to pitch tents.
You can also crash in the packing area as well.

The sound system is IPOD based so create your own playlist and we can keep it hoppin up in there.

There is a small but growing "Gravity Rat Art Show", basically old school photos and/or art by our own. (not just team pix, stuff from all da rats).

Bring what you got and display. Take it home when you leave. The collection is quite nice...and growing...

peace out

Well, guys......things have changed slightly for me. As of right now it is up in the air whether I'll be able to make it. It will be a last minute deal for me. Hopefully, things will work out to where I will be able to make it down and make at least a few jumps.

Gotta support the Rats!! Cool

i just want to thank robert, bryan, and ken for all their hard work this weekend. excellent vibe, sic jumps and a happy reunion of fun jumpers that have been jonesing for a place to call home.

i think this may be it. excellent facilities, wet county, friendly staff and locals, and a plane that gets you to altitude. what more could you want?

it was great to see old friends and make new ones. and the party ROCKED!

lets keep up the momentum. for all of you that couldn't make it out this weekend i hope to see you the next.
