DWR 2010 Can't Post

At the BPA AGM, I met up with Alan Thompson & we discussed DWR and we all agreed that 2010 would be a good idea as it give us all time to save up as well as giving new skydivers chance to learn more skills.

Alan & I have agreed to the place to be at Empuriabrava as it IS decent dropzone with lots of benefits... The down side are 2 main things. You would require AAD (You can hire one from the DZ for small fee) and at around lunch time it does get windy but usually lasts for up to 2 hours which we can use the time for lunch, de-breifs, dirt dives, etc.
Alan has travelled to many dropzones & he reckons Empuriabrava is the one for DWR 2010.

I am in the progress of setting up a new website for DWR 2010 (Hope to pull in some sponsorships) containing as much information as I can input for DWR 2010...
I am also in the progress of making arrangements with Skydive Emburiabrava.
Planning things ahead... Would you please "vote" which month suits you all best... June or September 2010?

Spain... it's supposely to be sunny all year long! heheh Hence my asking them when A) best weather season B) Off peak times (So that we can get more jumps in) C) Avoiding holiday makers (Vaccation)season as things tend to be more expensive - Hence being at suggested dates June (Just before vaccaton season) & mid September (Just after vaccation season) - with these propose dates, flighhts are much cheaper for all of us.

SennaH, you are the first deaf person I've seen on here from Sweden! How many jumps have you made? And, have you seen our website at http://www.deafskydivers.org?

Welcome to the forum! Smile

Re: [TommyAndre] DWR 2010 [In reply to] Can't Post

I have been at Empuria in these months...
March, April, June & August/September. March was pretty windy (my time!) It was buzzing & alive in August/September - quite a while wait to get onto load (About 45 mins to 1 hour). April - plenty of people about but still easy to get many jumps in. June was pretty quiet, I managed to get 10 jumps in 2 days!

As for those who are worried about winds... When it becomes breezy, they put sign up "50 Jumps" meaning people with less than 50 jumps are grounded. Wind increases "100 Jumps"... Wind increases "200 Jumps"... wind increases more than 15 mph (I think) then everyone is grounded - usually around lunch time for up to between 1 to 2 hours.

Awesome! We'll need to add you and Patrik to the profile pages on our website. PM me your basic info and a nice close up picture and have Patrik do the same.

We're overdue for a revision of all profile pages anyway. Smile

We don't jump in Norway but will do sometime in the future. We usually jump in the UK with few other deaf skydivers. We usually meet up at these DZ - Hibaldstow, Langar & Hinton Smile

Come to think of it. June might be a better time just in case my little girl is old enough for kindergarten. You know those school schedules - most schools start the last week of August and finish the last week of May or first week of June.

There is no way that I'm going to be able to go to Spain by myself. I will have to take my wife and little girl along. Don't get me started on how much THAT will cost me.

If we get a 2nd baby between now and then, I'm screwed anyway and will be staying home. Tongue
