I recommend a "D" because we are in freefall over the water on each jump. The LZ is huge, but surrounded by few outs. We have had many participants with fewer jumps attend with an OK from their DZO or S&TA. Bring some common sense and a positive attitude and all will be well. The three major mishaps in four years were all done by jumpers with over 2,000 jumps each. Go figure. We follow strict safety rules, landing patterns and only put three groups out per pass nearly over top the LZ. Last year 1,112 jumps were done with one twisted knee and a little road rash on a skid in landing. Feel free to call me if you have any questions.
The Belikin Beer is chill'n. The JetA is purchased. The party nights are set. The live music is ready. The sun will be shining. The super otter is getting washed. See you in freefall over the "Blue Hole" soon!
I have 15 rooms remaining. Bring a group from your DZ and get free jumps.
Seems to be more about the social vibe, and less about skydiving.
You say that like it's a bad thing. It's one of the reasons I'm looking forward to going to this boogie one of these days (unfortnately, time/budget doesn't allow it for this year). Not all boogies are about jumping your ass off.
Have you read the web sight??? You can buy more jumps. Yes it a social thing. So what??? That is the only reason i can go with my wife. She dosent want to go to a boogie for a week if all im gonna do is jump all week. It may be a waste of money for you, but for some of us it is money well spent!
I'm just the messenger, and expressing the views that almost everyone I have talked to shares.
tsk tsk tsk
What a cute little troll. So if you can get 15 jumps in 2 days at Perris, how is it that it's taken you 3 years to get to your 45? I find it difficult to believe there's only been one good weekend of weather per year down in Southern California!
I'm sure everyone will twist my arm at BC's beachfront bar to do a boogie VI. I will lose my mind once again, my wife will threaten divorce, or at least beat me with the rolling pin and I'll maybe consider setting dates for 2010! But then I will realize what a fantastic event this has been and it's time to put it to bed for a few years.
I'll let the cat out of the bag now. There will be a full time DZ in Belize by November 1, 2010. More to follow when all of the paperwork, logistics and aircraft are confirmed.
We can discuss it all over a cold Belikin in two short months!
