SkyFest June 15th -21st Celebrating 10 years! Can't Post

SkyFest is preparing for its 10 Year Anniversary! June 15-21, 2010 at Skydive The Farm! The official boogie that "Pays it Skyward".
Of course we will have 2 Otters, and a Casa. With more specialty AC to be announced. Still trying to confirm the Helicopter and Balloon, if you know anyone that may be able to help, please let us know. Seems like we go thru this every year with those two AC, and each year we have come thru, so we expect the same this year.Crazy

Not to mention over a dozen manufacturers available for you to check out their latest and greatest gear and demos! Make sure you stop by their booth and spend some time with them.
You can also catch some of the manufacturers in March here: http://www.skydiveexpo.com/

We also have the largest Gear Auction in the country with several 100% discounted products to bid on! See the site for a list of auction items.

Lets not forget what SF is all about: the growth, retention, and safety of our sport. So all you new jumpers, this boogie is for you!! And for all the experienced jumpers, come out and pass on your experience, set some records, make some history, tell your stories, and help SF "Pay it Skyward"!!!

Some of the events during SF will be:
POPS State Record
Women's GA State Record
Wingsuit State Record
Freefly State Records, Male and Female
SCR's and SCS
Pink Patch Jumps (a chance to win a jump with 19 ladies)
20 + ways - TeXXas Style!!
20 LO's on hand to cover any type of jumping you would like
Hoop, Raft, Banana, Tube, Safe Sex, Chair, and many other inflatable dives!

What more could you ask for? Well how about a week at the beautiful Skydive The Farm! If you have not been, this is the time to check it out!
2 landing areas
2 Ponds
RV hookups will be available with reservations
Bonfires!
And of course the parties, Farm Style!!

We recently "gutted" the website so bear with us as we get more information on there. More details to work out so keep an eye on the site.
Pre registration will open in the next couple of weeks.

Wow, 10 years of SkyFest! Its been an interesting ride to say the least. We are very appreciative of everyone's support over the years and hope to see you there!

Something tells me that if I don't come then you'll kick my ass the next time I show up at the Farm. So I guess I don't really have a choice. Tongue

DUDE.. 106 degrees and 90% humidity nearly killed me at Chester...Crazy

You get used to this mild climate after a few years.. this is America's version of Crappy English Weather up here most of the year... just like you guys are used to that hot assed humid weather.

Chester was hot, enough to set a record I believe?
Luckily we can take advantage of the 2 ponds at the Farm!
I have 3 cutaway harness's ready for the Thunderbow, lopo, Strato Star, and Paraplane just for us! I even sacrificed an old G4 by cutting the container off it just for the 3 ring release!! Thus giving me harness's with shot and a half's, large rings and mini rings. Left my Javelin in perfect shape of course! Wink
What else do you need? ShockedAngelicTongue

And I've decided that no matter where SF goes, its just hot! I really thought we would be below 100 at Raeford for he first time in 9 years, it was predicted to be 99, but they were wrong again! Uggh!

Hell yeah... its a GREAT DZ..... HUGE landing area... great facility.... and really good people.. although June would be IFFY... now the 2nd last week of July ... the week before Lost Prairie... now THAT would be an EPIC Boogie Schedule. Temps should be in the low 80's and DRY.. like 45% humidty.

Not in late July


That is why I suggested it. We get about 6 weeks where there is very little chance of rain.. from just after the 4th of July... till mid AUG... before the 4th... and after Aug 15th... we get a very few showery days. We have a dry season.. and it fosters some pretty harsh fire seasons during that time.

Scroll down to the June dates: Now whats your excuse? he he You know I am just giving you a hard time!!

By the way, when was the last time you have been rodeo'd? Its time again! So what do you say, can I have that slot? Wouldn't that be a great shot!!

DUUUDE You cant fool me... I grew up in a climatologically abusive family. We spent winters in Wisconsin... and summers in Florida. There is no way you will convince me to spend ANY summer month anywhere in the bible belt and have anything but muggy humid hot rainy weather.

From your ownlink....

This will be my 4th consecutive Skyfest. SmileCoolSmile

Unfortunately, the streak will have to be broken next year, as it looks like we're deploying in about a year. Sounds like I'm gonna miss most of the boogie season. Frown

Guess I'll just have to make this one that much better and get twice as crazy.WinkDevil

I'll be there for a few days at least. I hope you guys stay on top of the logistics for this boogie- otherwise it could become a giant cluster-f. That being said, I'm sure things will go fine and a good time will be had by all.

Look forward to seeing everyone there.

Re: [upndownshop] SkyFest June 15th -21st Celebrating 10 years! [In reply to] Can't Post

thank you much!!! so i have been informed that i have to choose between my 'normal' summer vacations and can only do one ... normal is two music fests (usually all good in WV and Camp Bisco in NY) .... two skydive fests .... and then two nature trips like white water rafting, hiking, etc....

so i have to choose one of those six ---- the obvious answer is skyfest but that does not include her ... so idk we will have to see ... if i can convince her to do two trips then i will be there ... i will try
