  6. This is a great idea and I'm excited to extend this event to Skydive Chicago. Here's the info for SDC's version of the Rumble, with an application form attached. SDC’s Midwest 16 Way RUMBLE Information and Application Form What: A 16 way Invitational Formation Skydiving Event at SDC, with competition across multiple Drop Zones Where: At Skydive Chicago When: Saturday, July 31, 2010 – 7am to 7pm (Weather day Sunday, August 1, 2010 – 7am to 3:30pm) - How many Jumps: 5 Jumps - Cost: Your jumps plus a one time $25 fee - Application Due: June 23rd On July 31, 2010, SDC Rhythm XP will be organizing a 16-way event at Skydive Chicago during the last weekend of Summerfest. The goal is to draw some of the best formation skydivers around for a day of challenging sequential skydives and tons of fun. We will organize one or more teams at SDC to compete against each other and teams at other drop zones who will be doing the same jumps on the same day. This will be a quasi-invitational event, meaning that participants will be asked to fill out a short registration form to ensure a consistent experience level within each group. The event will have 5 structured jumps for the day, with optional additional jumps if there is time and interest. Each group will be led by one or two team captains. There will be a planned progression of dives that will grow in complexity and difficulty over the course of the day. Some will be national style sequential dives, others will require more intricate and delicate builds, and some will have FS "tasks" you've never seen or heard of before. The kind of skills folks should have is at least a basic background in 4/8 way training and/or solid experience in 16-40 way events. The interest form below is intended to gather as much information as possible to work out the line-ups. This will be a one day event, running from 7AM to 7PM. However, if weather is bad on Saturday, we will resume jumping on Sunday, August 1st. Therefore, all participants need to be available on Sunday to land from the last load by 3:30pm if weather requires it. Anyone interested in participating should send Steve the completed form below by June 23rd. Rosters will be finalized by July 7th. A one-time fee of $25 will include all the organization and video. You cover your own jumps. Still pictures will be available for purchase directly from the photographers. Thanks for your interest.

  7. SDC Rhythm XP is looking for a Cameraman (or woman) for 2010. Rhythm is passionate about doing the best jumps we can do and having tons of fun doing it. We are proud of building a strong team based on open-mindedness, commitment, a positive attitude, no excuses, and confidence in ourselves and one another. Besides working every year to reach new competitive levels, we are also dedicated to contributing to the sport through various coaching endeavors, including 8-way and 16-way player coach projects, team-for-a-day, team coaching, and tunnel coaching. We are looking for a videographer who is interested in being part of this project and acheiving something big. Team schedule is available, and will include about 12 days per month, 10 of which are during the week, amounting to ~750 jumps for the year. We will train out of Sebastian, FL through April and then move to Skydive Chicago around the beginning of May to finish the season. The benefits of being part of our team include tons of jumping, the opportunity to become among the top in your discipline, having a lot of fun, strong sponsorship, great competition experiences, and playing a key role in helping others reach their skydiving goals. Our cameraman would also have the opportunity to lead the group of videographers who support our organized events. While experience is a plus, we believe the right level of commitment and positive attitude is more important than a long resume. Also, strong work ethic and professionalism are required. Please contact [email protected] if interested. Also, check out www.rhythmskydiving.com for more info about the team. Team Website: www.rhythmskydiving.com
  8. I made the tool with excel 2003. I know macros can get buggy between versions. I'll see what I can do about that. One thing is: you have to save it to your computer before opening it. You can't just open it directly from the site. Sounds like it's a version issue though... Team Website: www.rhythmskydiving.com
  9. Interesting it doesn't work for you Bill. Perhaps there's a version issue. The graphics are just shots from the IPC files available on that site. I'm glad you enjoy our site; we enjoy keeping it relevant. Not sure about Chicago teams looking to do 8-way, but there are a bunch of teams now, so it's likely you could find one to join up. We're doing 8-way with Sebastian Tempest this year. Best of luck this year. I checked out some of your video, it looks really nice. Team Website: www.rhythmskydiving.com
  10. That's really great. I'm glad you like it. Enjoy! Team Website: www.rhythmskydiving.com
  11. Hi, I know others have done this before, but I made a tool that randomly generates 4-way draws. It's in excel, and you pick the division and click a button to see the draw that comes up. It will also generate the pictures in a format that prints nicely. If you don't want a random draw but just want to layout the pics for a predetermined draw, it will do that too. Perhaps one advantage over the other links I have seen for this is that you can download to your computer, so you don't need to be online for it. You can get to the tool through the resources link on the left nav bar of our homepage www.cscrhythm.com: "Draw Generator" or by clicking the "Download here" text in our blog post about it: http://www.cscrhythm.com/blog/blog.html Check it out, and let me know what you think. Suggestions for improvements are welcome. Team Website: www.rhythmskydiving.com
  12. JaNette and I just took a flight with our gear last night. She tried to carry on her weights, and this time the agent said we had to check them because the belt is too heavy, and could be used as a bludgeon. We never heard that one before. We calmly asked to speak with her supervisor, who explained the same. We asked, "What if we take the weights out of the belt (they are removable), and put them in separate carry-on bags?" They agreed to that, even though we clearly could have reassembled the thing a minute later. I think the point is, if they want to make you check your weights, they will. But if you are calm and friendly, they will usually let you through. Team Website: www.rhythmskydiving.com
  13. Whoops! I'll still blame it on Pincus. It's worth it to to hear Chromy say, "PINCUSSSSSS!!" I remember you on the plane now, with Avalanche. Did you compete this past nationals? Team Website: www.rhythmskydiving.com
  14. Thanks Alex, Brian has some huge shoes to fill from Chromy! Chromy's an awesome coach and an awesome player coach. Looking forward to next year, Brian is a great fit for the team. We're really fortunate to have him, and excited about what's to come. P.S., I'll be sure to let Chromy know you said he was slowing us down. We'll be flying with him in the tunnel over thanksgiving! PINCUSSSSSS!!!! Team Website: www.rhythmskydiving.com
  15. By the way, good luck in the primaries... Team Website: www.rhythmskydiving.com
  16. Thanks a lot Smooth. I think it would be great to get one of the many iterations of Good Vibrations in the air again. You, JaNette, Brian Voss, Kevin on video, and me. We'll see if we can break a 2.4 average. In the meantime, keep sending those big way photos! Team Website: www.rhythmskydiving.com
  17. Here's one for both more experienced: 1. launch a cat diving out of the plane. 2. Rear hops over front while front does 180, so the same guy is catting the same guy again. 3. Front turns 180 to sidebody the rear (who turns 90 to present sidebody) 4. Turn 360 like buddies 5. The person presenting the sidebody turns out to present cat. Now we have a reverse of where we started. 6. Back to top, but the roles are switched. It's got memory, it's got verticals, it's got 360's, it's got a fun diving exit with a hop on the hill. For a mix of one more experienced and one less experienced: 1. exit star 2. compressed one side 3. compressed other side 3. star 4. More experienced hops over to cat 5. less experienced turns 180 to star 6. repeat In general, adding a vertical hop for the more experienced person I think is always fun Team Website: www.rhythmskydiving.com
  18. It is time for CSC Rhythm's second 4-way scrambles, coming up Saturday, September 22nd at CSC. People had a great time last meet with only one jump due to weather, and there's no doubt it will be even better this time. The meet will consist of four jumps taken from the 4-way dive pool. It is a great opportunity for any skydivers who would like to participate in a 4-way meet but don't want to commit the time or money to an entire season. It's also a great opportunity to learn a lot, to help others, and to meet new people. We expect to get a number of jumpers from the various area DZ's so it will also be an excellent opportunity for people from different DZ's to meet. No 4-way experience is expected or needed. We do expect each participant to be comfortable flying with 3 other people and a cameraman. We'll be mixing up the teams to make them fair and fun. The fee is $29.00 per person to cover the cameraman's slot and his pack. The event will start with a brief meeting at 8:30am. Keep in mind that the scrambles weekend is also the weekend of the $200 all-you-can-jump deal, so your own jumps can be significantly cheaper depending on whether you take advantage of that. There will be prizes, including free jumps and beer! If you are interested or have any questions please email Steve at [email protected] We're asking people to sign up by Tuesday, September 18 so we can organize the teams beforehand.

  19. CSC Rhythm is organizing the first in a series of 4-way scrambles events on Saturday, May 5th at CSC. People had a great time last year, and we're expecting to have just as much fun this year. The meet will consist of four jumps taken from the 4-way dive pool. It is a great opportunity for any skydivers who would like to participate in a 4-way meet but don't want to commit the time or money to an entire season. It's also a great opportunity to learn a lot, to help others, and to meet new people. No 4-way experience is expected or needed. We do expect each participant to be comfortable flying with 3 other people and a cameraman. We'll be mixing up the teams to make them fair and fun. The fee is $23.00 per person to cover the cameraman's slot and his pack. The event will start with a brief meeting at 9am. Remember that because of the Cinco de Mayo boogie, jumps are just $17.00 that weekend. There will be prizes, including free jumps and beer! If you are interested, please email steve at [email protected] We're asking people to sign up by Monday, April 30. Team Website: www.rhythmskydiving.com

    Memory

    Has anyone done the math on the average number of jumps in a ten round AAA draw that will have memory? I would assume: 1. no "unwinding" to get out of memory 2. for 5 and 17, you always take double slot switches, not sometimes double slot-switches and sometimes mirror. so if you get 5 and 17 in the same dive without another slot-switcher, that's not memory 3. if you get two single slot-switches together, that's not memory Finally, I don't think there's a difference for 6 round meets. is there? Team Website: www.rhythmskydiving.com
  21. I really enjoy jumping here. The people are extremely friendly. It is easy to find someone to jump with. Then, in the night you are made to feel very welcome at the bonfire, even if you've never been there before. The manifest women are great. They are very friendly, inviting, patient, and on top of their game. Finally, it is clear the staff is looking out for you, keeping an eye on everyone's safety. If someone flies a bad pattern, or lands in a way that is not safe for others, a staff member will quickly speak up and educate that person on how to be safer.
  22. I pole vaulted in College and High School too. Every year my college has an alumni meet, and I compete in that as well. I was never that good though! It's nice to see there are a few pole vaulter/ sky divers. I always thought they were kind of related. -Steve Team Website: www.rhythmskydiving.com
