  1. I have a sweet home for rent to visiters 1.5 miles from the DZ. write me if you have any questions!
  2. Still zero teams in the 2 way VFS Advanced, one team in 4 way FS advanced and VFS advanced for the 2010 Gauntlet Tunnel Comp!!!! Get in there peeps! The other events are shaping up nicely. Registration ends today. Comp will be Saturday only! Prizes and Awards are dope!
  3. There is tones of sponsorship for the Gauntlet! The awards are amazing! There is still time to register. There are no teams registered in 2 way belly FS novice and 2 way VFS intermediate. Get a team together, come have some fun, win a sweet medieval trophy and some great prizes. 4 way FS open and 2 way VFS open have some good competition---but the other disciplines need some bodies! Currently there is only one team in 4 way VFS and FS intermediate. Where have all the tunnel flyers gone????? The comp will start and finish on Saturday. We will party down with DJ moo on Sat night. Registration ends this Friday----get in there!
  4. Great questions! I think jumps will be around $19.50, but we want to keep an eye on fuel. They may go up or down a buck. Rego will most likely be $25 like last year. Maybe a few bucks more, just to make the parties that much more dope! But it will not be much-----cheap jumps-----cheap rego fee----that is how we roll.
  5. what sumo suits?????? I do not know what you are talking about?????

  8. Paul, I will miss our car pooling to work, our UFC debriefs, our jumps, all the amazing talks and all the fantastic times. You will forever be remembered as a beautiful, strong, kind, smart man, a dependable friend and a fantastic father. It feels like you left us too early, it feels so wrong to talk about you in the past tense, but such is life, it was your time as much as it sucks for the ones left behind. Love you Gorilla

  10. 8-Way Speed Competition – need formation ideas! Belly and Head Down August 21, 2010 Skydive Arizona This comp is all about building a formation as fast as your team can without taking any grips out the door. Teams can either enter as a headdown or a belly team. Organizers Terry Gardner and Amy Chmelecki are looking for new formations for this year’s event. The formations have to be able to be built as a headdown formation and a belly formation. To get an idea of what we are talking about, check out the links below to last year’s formations. If you have any formation ideas please email them to [email protected] Here are the rules! • This event will be 5 rounds • A team consists of 8 flyers and one camera flyer • A team can enter as a belly team or a head down team • There are 5 formations in the dive draw • Each team will exit from 13,000 feet • Maximum amount of working time is 35 seconds • No grips can be taken for exit • Competitors must exit from behind the door jam • Once any one team member (excluding the camera flyer) passes the door jamb the clock will start • From the time the team exits to the time the formation is built will be timed • The formation grips must be shown with control on the video for the clock to stop • A judge will judge and score the video • If a team does not complete the formation within the working time they will receive a 36 for that round • Each team’s times for all five rounds will be averaged • The team with the lowest average time wins • If there is a tie, the team with the lowest time in any one round wins Please stay posted as the new formations are developed!
