  5. Don't forget that Jennifer has volunteered to work with a group also. So come out and join the group.You are guaranteed to learn something. RoamingDZ.com,Proud sponsor of The Rack(v.2.0)National Hanging Out Tour. You are coming to the St.Patricks Boogie right??
  6. Oh yeah, If you don't intend on being on the record but would like to sit in on the camp that will be fine. We will get someone to organize for the younger jumpers too. RoamingDZ.com,Proud sponsor of The Rack(v.2.0)National Hanging Out Tour. You are coming to the St.Patricks Boogie right??
  7. Come hone your RW skills in preperation for the Georgia State RW record that is slated for attempt at the 2010 St.Patricks Day Celebration Boogie in Fitzgerald,Ga. March 18th-21st. Fortson Rumble and Jack Donavan will be coming up to lead this camp.I will let them post details about the camp.Fortson and Jack are both World Team members. We are looking for a local video person who would be able to shoot video for up to 20 ways. There will be a small fee TBA to help with packjobs for the organizers and video person. I may even come out of video retirement to help out with this. Edit: I was contacted by Jennifer Jones,she has volunteered to work with some of the younger jumpers who would like to attend. She has been on many bigways,is a World Team member and will be on The Jump for the Cause in September. RoamingDZ.com,Proud sponsor of The Rack(v.2.0)National Hanging Out Tour.

  8. Excellent post. Someone who has something to say. Better then the verbal diarrhea that other have posted. I think J will read this and hope he will put some thought into what he trys to promise in the future. I his defense, I have had events fall apart at the last minute before. I had a birthday boogie planned once and the chopper and the band canceled on me a day before the event. All I could do was do my best to fix it, which didn't happen. Some people were upset but for the most part it was ok cause everyone came for other reasons. IMO, I would (and have) forgotten about the big names. The young jumpers get what they need from the local talent and those willing to jump with them for free. I supply slots for organizers, I don't know what agreement Skyfest had with the DZ.edit: To clarify,when I lease a plane by the slot,I make sure the aircraft owner is giving me X amount of organizer slots per full load. When I am leasing by the hour it's all on me. I'm not going to defend J on these things,I think he has some things to address. However, I am with Jello-J when he says to those trying to tear the event down, Go build your own event,get the big names and the cool aircraft. Build the perfect event where nothing goes wrong and then come talk to me. RoamingDZ.com,Proud sponsor of The Rack(v.2.0)National Hanging Out Tour. You are coming to the St.Patricks Boogie right??
  9. If you would like to start a thread where people can post about how they have been screwed then do so. I bet no one will post with their real names or recognized accounts. It will be a bunch of I heard this and so and so said that. That being said, I have heard little bits and pieces from both sides over the years and the funny thing is neither side has ever stated a specific case of being screwed. It has always looked to me like a case of lack of a proper agreement so both sides felt like things didn't go right. Can anyone see why I hold my events off of DZs? Funny thing is I have been accused of screwing the DZOs cause I'm taking business away from them.I'm just a bastard that way. RoamingDZ.com,Proud sponsor of The Rack(v.2.0)National Hanging Out Tour.

  10. This is starting to look like a classic example of "Lets circle the wagons and beat up on the outsider". In most cases there are three sides to every story, both sides and the truth. In this case there are many more. You have the DZ side,Skyfest side, the locals side, the visitors side,the ones that didn't attend side, the outside aircraft owners side and...well some of you will get my point. I'm not going to beat up on anyone here. In some ways the event was a success, in others it was not. I think there were things that were not worked out ahead of time and it came back to bite everyone involved.Notice I said everyone involved. IMO the two people that have posted beating up on J have no valid opinion and should have no voice here.You made the decision not to be involved and it worked out for you. I've been to two Skyfests and had a good time at both. J is my friend and if he asks my opinion I'll ask a few questions and I'll give it to him. Tony Thacker is my friend. If he asks my opinion I'll give it to him. I hope to be working with Gene Paul on a fund raising project for the National Skydiving Museum. Whether or not everything should be addressed in a public forum I'm not sure. I think a summary of what changes will be made to make things better in the future might be in order. From what I understand though Skyfest will not be in Raeford next year(assumed from both sides) and Raeford never has boogies so the problem is solved for the unhappy locals. In the future maybe you should think about coming out and asking Tony what you can do to help. RoamingDZ.com,Proud sponsor of The Rack(v.2.0)National Hanging Out Tour.

  11. That would be me! We do a "DZ for a day" a few times a year there. BS, MEL Shit next time you do this crap let me know! I live across the freakin's street (literally) yo!!! I didn't know they allowed it at the airport. I went up there the last few years for the fly ins and they said the city wouldn't let anyone jump for some reason. I mean, hell people would enjoy seeing that at a fly in. Let us all know. That is something the RoamingDZ would be all over. RoamingDZ.com,Proud sponsor of The Rack(v.2.0)National Hanging Out Tour.

  14. OK kids,Spent the day working on the RoamingRV getting it ready to go. We took a little shake down cruise over to Skydive Atlanta tonight to celebrate The_Dons birthday and make a couple of jumps tomorrow. We will be headed to Skyfest either Wed. night or Thursday morning and returning Sunday night or Monday. If anyone is in the Atlanta area is that flexable and wants to share gas you can ride in style in the RoamingRV and drink yourself silly on the way. The does not automatically include a place to stay but we can talk about that.Bring your own food and drink. RoamingDZ.com,Proud sponsor of The Rack(v.2.0)National Hanging Out Tour.
