Chuck is an EXCELLENT organizer! If you have not jumped with him you should!!
Bummed I am currently forced to stay on the ground.>:(

Hey Skyfesters,

I'm looking for a camera flyer or flyers for my RW group. We are starting small on Tuesday and working toward 20-way sequential. Probably lots of firsts, so there will be opportunities to sell prints and copies of the video.

PM me or e-mail chuckakers@comcast.net

Thanks - see y'all Monday afternoon for registration!

So I agree with ya, Mic, get there early and we can go down a rocky river carrying the canoe!! :P

Hey I knocked the dust/rust off last weekend. :-P

If I can't hang I'll have 6 planes to play with at least.

Jay any clue to the special plane(s) you were lining up?
So far I got CASA, Helicopter, Balloon, Otter, Mystery 1 and Mystery 2.

Come on, give us at least somethin. turbo prop, not turbo prop, jet, not jet, single engine?

I heard it was a tailgate aircraft with dual jet engines. Don't know the name of it, but it is used in Europe in a few places I believe. :P:P:P

wings
tail
motor

Thats all I can say about that......:o

Hey J. Not much info on the website, unless I am not accessing it properly. What are the other aircraft and prices? And do you have lists from the previous scholarship winners? It would sure be cool to follow the winners and see "where are they now"
Are there campsites available? What are the prices?
A really good fund raiser would be if you could add a fan auction! Woohoo!
Hey! Have a great boogie!



Hey you, how are ya?
We used to have the list on the site for the first 7 years. We then built a new site and it did not make it on. Then when we did the site again in 08 (current one) we had a spot saved for it but failed to get it up there. This year we gutted the site and I did not realize how much time it would take to get it like I like.
Its been a pretty tough 18 months or so for me with the moves and job, but things are great now so I am slowly building it back up.
My goal is to get all the history for every year on this site by the end of the year. For the last 6 years it has pretty much been a 1 man show (me) for the pre event tasks.
This is the first year where my job did not allow me to have the freedom to work it all the time. But I have managed to get things in place and set up. Wish I had the crew that you did back in the day! Yeah, yeah, I know..excuses, excuses. But as I have said before: life gets in life's way sometimes.

As far as "where they are now" good luck. I request letters or write ups about what the funds did for them and I have received a few over the years. But as you know its like herding cats:S

In the past we published the names in the post event write ups in parachutist so many of them are there.

Some day I will figure out a way to make the concept go nationwide, but that takes money to say the least. Just need to win the lottery and we can do it!:)
Damn, is it already here again! Ok back to work, more details to work out.

Take care
J

As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD...
