  1. I just bought my plane ticket out for the sit-round. Be there!
  2. I think it'd be a great idea to bring back the head up challenge/work on building bigger and bigger "all-head up" sit-rounds, but that doesn't mean that these belly to sit rounds Amy is organizing aren't bad ass too. In fact, I'm a huge fan : ) I'll do my best to make it. I certaintly wouldn't want to miss another go at it! (even if it means flying out from Florida on back to back weekends)
  3. I am in! There is no way I would miss this year's attempt, as last years jumps were such a great experience. I'm flying out on Friday and I'll register as soon as I get there. Can't wait to see everyone and build this sit-round!
  4. Team Solstice is a 3 way freefly team, training out of Eloy. 2nd in open class last year - competing in the world meet and open class at nationals this year. As soon as I find teammates and the time, I will be a member of a 3 way freefly team Also, I don't think a low number of replies to a DZ.com post should justify thinking that "no one is competing" this year."
  5. Hi Tom, I hope you're having fun right now. I still think of you very often, seems like almost every day. I was nervous as hell on Dec. 30th this year as I was about to make my first jump at this year's boogie. So nervous, my friends could feel it, but once I got out the door I had a wonderful and safe skydive. The boogie was great, and Ficus and Ego decided they were going to show up and surprise me on the 31st, just when I thought no Byron folks were going to show. Your death changed my life in many ways, but it prevented almost certain tragedy, and terrible changes, and when I think on all I've done, felt, experienced, accomplished, since that day. I say thank you to you. Blue Skies my friend... Ilea
  6. Great people, great flying, great day. It was awesome all around : ) Wonderful attitudes by all and fantastic organizing.
  7. I didn't know JP very well, but I do know that he was a very caring, very loving person. At Tom's SNOT he gave me a huge hug and had many kind words to say. My condolences to the family and Byron Love to all.
  8. I lost my LP virginity last year and it was better than I could have ever imagined. I will do everything I possibly can to make it. The only way I won't be there is if the military says otherwise. Blue Skies, Skydiver Blondes, and Byron Love Always... -------------------- Amazon Beachbum - trying my damndest!

  9. He was a respectable gentleman. Always very respectful
  10. a few more of Tom most from the 15th, one from the 22nd at the Bent Prop I know I'm a picture posting whore...but he's a little different in all of them : )
  11. Dang, I only get to attach 4 at a time. More to come. Here are some of the "various faces of Tommy D." Pictures taken 15 Dec, at Marcels house shortly after some rounds of VCL. --------------- Also, as i was searching for Tom's VCL pin the evening of the 31st so that I could wear his close to my heart (which I did), he stole mine. I looked everywhere and checked the pocket it should have been in over and over again, and there is no way i would have missed it. Then today, while walking through my house thinking that I was satisfied knowing that Tom had my pin, I put my hand in the pocket of my suitcase to check one more time, and there it was. I guess Tom wanted me to have it back. Thanks!
  12. I loved Tommy D so damn much. He was a wonderful, amazing person - quiet because he didn't feel the need to talk for the sake of talking, but he could have an amazing conversation with you as well. Kind hearted and wonderful. Always willing to dance with me, and how about that voice when he administered VCL. It was the clearest words ever spoken by "the mumbler" and in an entirely different tone. He always told me to be safe, and he kept me that way. Thank you, I love you, you kept me safe. If it makes anyone feel any better to know this. I think Tom went out enjoying his life. Tom and I had gotten to liking one another and were spending some time together and I was lucky enough to see a lot of that amazing smile that only comes out once and a while and a twinkle in his thoughtfull eyes. Last time I talked to him was in the door of the skyvan. He said, "May I have a kiss," and of course, he got one. We did a jump for him later that day, sunset load on the DC-3. We sang "him him fuck him" and "the Byron Boogie Boys" at 10,000 feet. Even though we were going to leave him a slot, he decided it'd be more fun to take out his own jump. Please please please stay safe everyone, I love you all so much. RIP Tommy D. You will be sorely missed and forever remembered. Blue Skies and Byron Love Always - i'll be looking forward to a dance with you the next time we meet.
  13. Thanks to everyone for all the advice so far. It seems like the main consensus is demo demo demo.
