100-way VFS World Record Tryout Skydive Chicago 6/13/09
SDC Standard is hosting tryouts for the 100-Way World Record attempts! June 13th and 14th are the official days, but we encourage you to show up and start jumping on the 12th. This will be the last of the tryouts being held in the United States. If you were not able to make it to Sebastian, Perris, or Arizona, now is your chance. Also, if you did make one of the other tryouts and were struggling or needed just a little bit more work, here is your opportunity to fine-tune your skills. Please donít assume you donít need to try out to be on the record attempts. World-class freeflyerís are coming up the ranks by the masses, participating in 4-way VFS teams and doing lots of tunnel. There will be many qualified participants looking for a slot. When the final list is made, extras will be put on the bench. Again, if you are not current donít assume your on, you will need to prove your skills as many others have at the East Coast West Coast and AZ tryouts.
Participant Registration Form (ATTACHED) to be completed by Friday June 12th at 5:00pm
Meet in the main hanger at 8:00 am on June 13th. The goal is to do 7 jumps per day.
The cost of the tryouts will be the cost of jumps plus $50.
Who Can Participate in the Tryouts?
Anyone who participates in this event must be able to fly safely in a large head down formation.
Participants must have the ability to control their levels and proximity to the formation. Be honest with yourself. If you canít regularly dock on a smaller formation without problems then you arenít ready for this tryout yet. There is always next time!
The formations can be as large as 50 people. There will be an added stress on participants because they are being selected for a world record attempt. Keeping your cool is key to flying safely in a large head down formation.
SDC Standard members will be honest with participants whether of not they can participate in the jumps. Anyone flying dangerously, or who is just not ready yet, will be asked to sit out. If you arenít sure if you are ready, please talk to a Standard member.
Please fill out the attached registration form and give it to Skydive Chicago Manifest by Friday May 8th 5:00pm. You can either fax it to manifest at (815) 433-6806 or bring it to manifest.
