Free jumps and free wind tunnel time may still be available, but you better register here soon. You can also see a complete list there of people who have registered

(The list above is the"official" list, but Lew Sanborn,D-1, told me last week he'll be there and jumping.)

There's a much longer thread on this event in History and Trivia.
I'll have a scanner there for capturing your pix.
