WestCoast Wingsuits Weekend May 2008

Recommended Posts

Great weekend. Had a nice slot specific formation at the end that hopefully Avery or Jeff will post some grabs from. Pretty excited about some up coming tonysuit products as well as some non OEM products to modify existing suits. Attendees displayed disciplined canopy pattern work. It was nice to meet some new faces.

AWESOME weekend :)Thank you to the 34 pilots that attendend, and thanks for some great flying! The west coast has the first official 16way slot perfect diamond. Not only doing it once but a second time for video! ;) Avery only had a top mount for one camera, so we shot it with his still camera, and then went up and did it again for his video camera.B| Thank you to the flocks for keepin it safe the whole weekend, and only one reserve ride!
It was great to meeting new pilots and I look forward to flying with you all again. :)

Ed, thanks to you and Lodi for hosting this event. Aside from meeting many new friends and seeing some familiar faces, I walked away from this event having significantly improved my skills.

#1 pulled same time I did same altitude several hundred feet in front of me. #3 was low pull ( 200-300 feet) several seconds later. I could have beat that distance if was not for for my upstanding honor.
Thats why its good to know who the follow up numbers are just in case there is a DQ who violates honor system hard deck. Just saying.

3rd place is just the 2nd loser, I'm just saying. ;) Jeff won it, with Damien not that far behind.

Congrats Jeff.

Hey, that sounds like something I would say! :)
But before this gets back to the greatness of the whole weekend, I will uphold the honor of the "second looser" by saying I did not cheat and will 100% stand by that. The more important point is that since only Jeff walked away with the cashoooolllaa who cares??

You know next year after Jeff makes Damien a factory pilot Jeff won't get the money ever again but neither will any of us by an even greater margin than before. Its not about the money, not for me. Its about the glory and the thrill of victory, then .........there is the agony of defeat.

I had a great time flying with everyone, and would like to thank everyone for coming out and flying, the pilots for giving us the jump runs we asked for and seeing the adjuxstments that we needed, the Kathy and Bill for working us into the schedule whenever we wanted, Ed for setting up the weekend and playing host to the Friday night activities, Kris for the sandwiches and arranging the dinner and Avery for his incredibly generous treatment of everyone. We had two groups who put together some really nice flocks, several people made incredible progress during the weekend, It was a terrific time. I am looking forward to doing it again. hope to see everyone there at Ed's next event.

Ha ha, well said, I take it Damien is a tall thin guy, they have it over us little fat guys ah?
That's why the comp we just did in Belgium is so good, anyone (who practice's) can win. and tons of fun,
Anyway, 34 fliers there, great turn out,

Many thanks to Ed for the organization and coaching for the group and to Avery for dinner on Saturday. It was also great to see some of the Z-flock come all the way out from Florida! Thanks to Jeff from Tony Suits for all the demo suits for people to try out as well! Lodi has a great vibe and is now one of my favorite DZ's. Not having the opportunity in the past to fly in large flocks I found the learning curve steep which pushed me to grow fast; need more practice !

Had a great time as well. Enjoyed working with the small groups and joining in the larger flocks.

Thanks to Avery on the hospitality.

Congrats to Ed on his 10K. After making 10,000 jumps, you would think his hair might be just a bit messed up. Somewhere in his attic is a painting of him with messy hair.:P
50 donations so far. Give it a try.

You know you want to spank it
