What do I have to do (what skills to work on, how to register, etc) in order to get in on my first 8-way? I'll be attending the boogie but really have no direction as far as doing formation jumps. I've only ever done 2-ways etc.

Thanks!

If you can dock on one person you can dock on 7. Now if the other person is chasing you around the sky, that is another story.

Like Spence says.
Some helpful hints:
do some bigger group skydives before June.
Starting with a 2-way, focus on having the other jumper simply lay a base, a target, for you to dive on. Make sure he simply stays in place and doesn't chase you. If he's chasing you, he's not giving you the oppotunity to learn what you need. If you can dock on him, you can dock on a 3-way, then a 4-way, etc.

One reason why you would want to get progressively larger and larger is that you will find that the formation tends to slow down a little as it gets bigger and bigger.

Another reason is that at breakoff, you will find that your tracking lane gets more and more narrow as the formation gets bigger and bigger. Focus on tracking. Focus on flat-tracking. Focus on a straight line and go for as much distance as you can get. Once you can track a straight line with distance, you will be better prepared to try bigger formations.

Focus on continuously flying your body after you dock. Simply grabbing a grip and hanging on is bad....very bad. Take a grip and CONTINUE to fly your body. Try this: take a grip with your finger tips only. Fly your body to maintain a finger-grip only...if you have to grab a handfull of material, your not flying, you're hanging on.

Unfortunately, in FS, there is a lot of grabbing going on...mostly because the guy taking a grip on YOU is not flying his body and pulling/pushing you around...the good flyers are able to counter-act that and minimize the impact of it on the rest of the formation.

There is more to learn. This is just the basics.

Good luck in your progression and have fun at SKyfest!

Just grab the pocket of the tiger stripes. Becides if it is an SCR you just have to complete the round. Easier said than done

I can fall fast enough to stay with futuredivot and CSpenceFly. (and I could probably go low on them if I tried hard enough Tongue) I'll put on my slick suit and can be an anvil if you need/want me to be. Angelic
