2-point 107-way

Recommended Posts

So I'm hearing about an engine catching on fire on the ground and a 100 way funnel near break off. So what fun stuff led up to the completions?

You heard wrong. The Deland Skyvan did blow a nice ball of flame on startup on Friday morning but the engine didn't catch fire. And there was no funnel, or anything even close to a funnel.

The 107 way had 25 individual pieces moving for the 2nd point, which was pretty cool.

Wingsuit big ways tomorrow (we just did a nice 22-way flock at sunset tonight)

The only sure way to survive a canopy collision is not to have one.

NICE WORK!

Ditto here --
I wanted to be in on this! ;)
I also specifically attended Chicago 40-ways early in July to try and maximize my chances to get onto this Chicago 100-way.

I did get put on the waiting list, but alas, it was full by the time I showed my performance at Skydive Chicago. There was reportedly 111 was fully paid and registered, and 107 people showed up for this jump!

I do have confirmed invites to other bigway events including Men's World Record, also confirmed Central Texas Sequential Invitational (Halloween 2009), and I have applied to others such as Z-Team March 2010, applied to some 2009 state records, and World Team 2010/2011.

Though that 2010 version of World Team might still be a long shot for me -- but I've made my marketing pitch -- my very fresh bigway currency -- 220+ jump in the last 12 months alone, with 150 of these jumps being at big way events, AND 7 hours of 4-way in the tunnel in the last 12 months, with more hours scheduled later this year; now that I have a new job less than half an hour away from Skyventure Montreal! My pitch to the World Team is that my bigway/RW/tunnel currency, should outweigh the "slightly low" jump number I have. ;)

He he.

I got to hand it to you, you are blowing your trumpet loudly and doing most things possible to get onto World Team. If persistence alone was a measure, you would be selected in the base already! ;)

Good luck. I hope you get on. :)
p.s. I met you at Perris 2009 for the P3 camps.
Stay Safe - Have Fun - Good Luck

The above could be crap, thought provoking, useful, or . . But not personal. You decide.
