new AOT Boogie info from the boss!
Yup, here it is, the latest AOT Boogie info from Todd...man, this is going to be good, even better the last year!
Let's see, raffle prizes have been rolling in, we had a brief respite from the heat, and I received a contract for the Casa, so we must be getting close to the AOTMB!
September 19-21 is rapidly approaching; remember to get your Early Registration in before September 5 and take advantage of our discounts!
We have set the lift ticket prices at $22, the same as last year. We were hoping to lower them by $1, but the fuel distributors just raised fuel prices. They gave some excuse about a refinery fire and losing money on auto fuel. I guess they're using aviation to make up for it.
Look for an itinerary as the Boogie gets closer. Tentatively, we'll have a "Welcome to Aggieland" party at our house on Thursday, Duddley's on Friday, and a live band on Saturday. We will also have dinner Saturday and we are working on a lunch or two. Smoothie King will be selling smoothies all day Saturday. Relative Workshop will be on hand to show off the latest and greatest and answer all your questions. Bill Newell is planning to attend (and maybe even earning his vSCR!). Big-way organizing by Larry Henderson (and Stan Schrimsher?), and Freefly and Hybrid load organizing by Levin & Ramon should make for some awesome skydives. We have also been told that two jumpers will make their return to skydiving at the boogie (care to hazard a guess???).
We look forward to seeing everyone again. If you have any questions, feel free to call or email.

The Boogie unofficially started today! Although the CASA is here, one of the pilots had to go on a trip until Thursday night, so SD Houston's Otter came up today and we were jump'n! We're jumping the Otter all day tomorrow as well!

AggieDave! I never made it to level 7 but have decided to come on down anyway and soak up the vibes. I'll look for you, you'll recognize me by the big black boot on my leg, please just don't call me gimpy, hop-a-long, broke, chester...
