3rd Annual Maytown SPC Beginner CRW Camp
OK, CRW Pups & Puppettes, jumping season is just around the corner here in the Northeast (at least for this cold weather wuss). That means the Maytown Sport Parachute Club will be putting on another beginner CRW camp.
Dates: June 1 - 3, 2012/ Raindate: June 8 - 9, 2012 (Friday night will be a safety seminar while Dave DeWolf's army of riggers hook up Lightnings as needed. Safety seminar will start around 7ish (cost is beer and pizza for the group); even if you've been through one before, if you're a relative low-timer, it's HIGHLY advisable to sit through another one). Saturday & Sunday will be one-on-one jumping with progression to larger formations based on skill sets.
Goals for the camp will be safe jumps with newbies earning their 4 stack awards. Last year we had newbies even getting their CCR and CCS awards.
If you're a Pup/Puppette and want to come play, you can either let Terry Ross know directly (email@example.com) or send me a PM. Let us know your jump numbers, including any CRW, and your exit weight. We'll plan on providing Lightnings in the 1.3 - 1.4 wing load range unless any student is uncomfortable with that loading (in which case we'll do our best to accommodate you).
Cost will probably be in the $50 range for canopies & we'll keep you posted about the charge for the instructor's slot (don't worry Maytown has the cheapest lift tickets outside of Lodi $18/10K).
Don't miss out. This is a lot of fun. You'll learn a lot & have fun doing it. Hope to see you there!
If you're an experienced Dawg (meaning you've competed at the Nationals/World Record level) and want to come instruct, your slot will be covered. Terry Ross has sent an e-mail to the List, so interested instructors can respond to him directly.
