Z-Flock n Dock April 7th-9th

Recommended Posts

For those of you haven't seen the skydive city website, there will be night jumps for the sober Saturday night and a high-altitude load at 8AM Sunday morning. This is normally 2 jump tickets.

There's no end to the fun!

So I suggest that when you get here, sign in with both manifest and Kathy (who'll have a tent near the covered hang-out area). Purchase 16 tickets from manifest (these tickets are refundable). Get 10 regular tickets and 6 hi-altitude tickets; 5 for Friday, 6 for Saturday and 5 for Sunday. Hand Kathy your 6 hi-altitude tickets ... this will put you on the list for Saturday's jumps and smooth out our ticket issues. Please, please if you want to jump on the big-ways, commit to all 6. Having people get on and off screws up things like you wouldn't believe.

I spoke with Eric (helicopter pilot) yesterday about best times to be onsite (and not screw up the big way loads). He's planning on being there Friday (or Sunday if the weather looks bad for Friday...).

I think they will be selling helicopter tickets in advance, but the details are still fuzzy - check with manifest a couple of days before the weekend if you intend to jump the helicopter as slots go quickly.

Guys,

Things will get started Friday morning as everyone checks in. Of course there is some paperwork to go through ... make sure you have your logbook and USPA (or other) membership card. Save yourself LOTS of grief and make sure your reserve will be in date for the entire event.

I can't wait!

Scott


For anyone who hasn't already jumped at Z-hills...

Complete the waiver online (paperwork for the DZ) from the Skydive City website here and save yourself some time once you arrive.

See ya there!

More details on the helicopter:

Tickets are on sale NOW if you previously jumped at Z-hills (and are in the computer) -
Otherwise you will need to purchase them at check-in.

Purchasing them at $46 (same as last time he was there) gets your name on the load sheet and the money remains on on account until ticket is issued. Call manifest to purchase as many as you think you want for Friday (if enough are sold or weather on Friday is bad he may come back for loads Sunday) - ticket is refundable if weather shuts down both days>:(.

This will be listed in the Events forum by tomorrow, but as it's a wingsuit event, it's only fair we get first shot, right?;)

I plan to stay sober Saturday night. Does anyone want to make a small night flock (4 or less Birds)? If you have not made a night wingsuit jump, it is amazing. I was disappointed that the night jumps were cancelled New Year's Eve, so I would definitely like to do one or two :) Also, I will probably hop on the high altitude load on Sunday morning, and it would be great to have a nice flock from 22,000 '!

See you soon,

Mike

Mike, you're just not happy unless you make 10 jumps a day, are you? :P Normally you could count me in for the night jump, but I am sure I will not be up for it on Saturday. Plus I don't think I'm ready to do a night jump on my new canopy yet. But I bet you will find enough for a small group.

Are you talking about jumping with two parachutes or one? ;)

If there's a lift, count me in. B|

I'll be up for that. I'm wondering if it'd be doable to fly the wingsuits with the strobes on. That would give a good visual for safe flocking, and let the peeps on the ground track the flight.

You're not the only one :( That NYEve thing suuucked. Maybe they can make it up to us!! ;);)

I am allergic to the 20K+ high altitude stuff, but it's starting to look like I will have to bolt about 2am anyway to go to work on Sunday, can't find anyone to cover for me yet. [:/]>:(:( As it is I had to move hell and earth to get Friday off :|

If that is the case, I won't have enough time to prepare my new single parachute system for jumping, so it looks like I will be tagging along behind you as usual Mike! B|

Ooooh, night jumps - night jumps - night jumps!!!

Chem lights in all the cells of the suit make for some wicked visuals --- I am sure Bob, Ted, Jean and I will join in for the night jump.

Can somebody bring a shit load of chemlights -- the long ones...........normally firefighters and police officers can get them really cheap
