  1. I think that the rules are similar. They were just recently adopted, and I assume that they used the recommendations from the FAI. Scott?
  2. It took place during the Alberta Skydiving Provincials. Provincials was advertised locally, but I'm not sure how much it was promoted outside of Alberta. We have a great base of Wingsuiters in Alberta, and it is continuing to grow. I'm sure there will be more events. Where are you located?

  3. Not a huge formation, but you have to start somewhere. This was the first Canadian Record. Scott Callantine took the photo. Education: that which reveals to the wise, and conceals from the stupid, the vast limits of their knowledge. - Mark Twain
  4. I put together some of my footage from the event here: http://vimeo.com/64467745 I had a great time, thanks everyone. Education: that which reveals to the wise, and conceals from the stupid, the vast limits of their knowledge. - Mark Twain
  5. So sad to hear this. Ian was a great friend. I enjoyed my friendship with him, he gave me lots of advice as I was starting into skydiving and coaching. I'll always remember the two of us driving back from Lost Prairie in his stinky camper van. We had to stop at all of his favorite places on the way and took way longer than it should have. It was a great trip. Blue Skies Ian!
  6. Just got my new Ghost 3 too!
  7. The video is up! Check it out here: http://flysight.ca/examples.htm
  8. It looks suspiciously like a cross between a Perigee Pro and a Gargoyle
  9. I'll pick you up at eight Don't encourage her...
  10. That is such a fucked up approach i don't know where to even start. Legal sanctioned events will come and go. They are a bonus. Bandit jumping is the lifesblood of BASE. Go down the route you just suggested and you'll be held by the bollocks forever, afraid to do anything to upset the authorities in case they snatch away your legal site. Are you seriously suggesting we all abstain from jumping all buildings JUST IN CASE someone might be organising "in secret" some legal event. Think about what you just said carefully. It's utter nonsense and to me is pretty much the antithesis of what BASE jumping is about. ian Those were my thoughts exactly. Thanks for expressing them. It is one thing if there is a legitimate chance of a object being sanctioned for a legal event; but realistically, these are rare. In my hometown, there was a high profile site that a local was working on opening, so it would have ruined his chances if some would have jumped it during that negotiation process. But the locals knew he was trying to do get it sanctioned, so it was known that it would have been off-limits during that time. Otherwise, if anyone could get on it, go for it (is basically the understood philosophy around here). I suspect the original poster may have been sarcastic though (maybe not).

    It was the University of Manitoba. Here are some links to a couple articles on him and his research if anyone wants to learn more: http://outside.away.com/outside/features/200212/200212_popsicle_splash.html http://www.umanitoba.ca/faculties/physed/research/people/giesbrecht.shtml
  12. How about learning to spell 'beginning'?
  13. Care to share those strengths and weaknesses?
