A new style of bigway flying! Can't Post

A little birdy (with blue/yellow color preference) told me there is some AWESOME stuff happening at the Flock University 'invitational' verticals event.

Had a few sneak peeks at the pix...and all I can say is wow!
Have fun these last few jumps...and show us the meat!

Pics of some of the fun are at http://skwrl.smugmug.com

The static photos don't do it justice, though - a three dimensional body really needs three different angles to really appreciate it. We're going to assemble the X, Y and Z perspectives of the three camera dorks shortly...

Those guys are tearing it up! Cool

Let's hope it catches on and we start seeing more and more cool & creative vertical flocks! So many possibilities! Smile

we definitely are not sucking at Jumptown.
Verticals aren't as easy as they might appear, and shooting em is even tougher. Nice job Brian, Jeff, Scotty!
Justin and Callantine are kickin it hard as organizers, pushing everyone hard.
Been a great time so far, and Jumptown has been bustin' butt to make it all work.

The pics look very neat and compact. I remember verticals being offset forward(this is from a while ago). These look really vertical, it must be much tougher.

I would have said 'Great Job!' but you guys must be having too much fun for it to be called a 'Job' Laugh

It was great being a fly on the wall for this event, they did some great flying! The video should be pretty cool :)

cool...like in CRW you could stack 4 and do rotations.
if you stack 4 wide enough you could do a vertical pylon course from the sides. weaving your way down
from left to right.
