  3. Peace my brothers. Hope you two are staying out of trouble.
  4. Shindig - Peace my brother. Hope you and JT are keeping everything squared away.
  5. Another year has passed buddy and the memories still feel like they were yesterday. Watch out for JT up there. You two stay out of trouble!
  6. Lori - Have you seen the jump-off scores? I stepped out to lunch and might have missed them.
  7. Another year has gone by and the good times still feel like they were yesterday. Miss ya buddy. Steve, Kathee & the GT Family
  8. Shindig - Thanks for the weather this weekend. It was perfect. Hard to believe its been two years. We miss ya buddy. Steve, Kathee & the GT Family.
  9. just to add 2 two pennies as an old fart, I'm a bit surprised at some of the dialog in this thread. I'm a fan of the sport. Period. Any discipline. I find all of it to be amazing, especially at the top levels. Believe it or not, this even includes style and accuracy. Most exciting meet I've ever watched live was 2003 Women's team accuracy at the world champtionship in Gap. I'm a 4-way guy, but VFS and FF leave me with my jaw on the floor. I can't FF worth a &*%$. And don't even get my started on the beauty and difficulty of Skysurf done well, not to mention CRW (wraps? No thank you). In my view, its all good, its all harder than hell to be good at and its all a blast to watch. Perhaps this is why I love this sport so much. Steve GT
  10. what Ron said. Steve GT
  11. Life long So-cal local here. Jumped at SD, Elsinore and Perris. For skydiving, SD (vs. Boulder) is the best choice. It is also a great city to live in, albeit expensive. If you ski/ride, SD is about 6 hrs to Mammoth, and if there is local snow, about 90 mins from local snow. Its not Boulder, but not too bad.
  12. Don't post here (or is it hear??) often, but could not pass this up (feel free to flame away if covered above). Has the every popular "anyway" v. "anyways" been covered? Makes me crazy.
  13. If you are in SoCal for any period of time, you can hit Elsinore, Perris and San Diego all on the same trip. Agree with everything said about Skydive San Diego above. On a clear day, you can see the ocean from Elsinore. Don't recall ever seeing it from Perris, but Perris does have the tunnel if you want to play there. All three soCal DZ's have a great vibe, and good people. SoCal does not really have any DZ's directly on the coast. Steve GT
  14. Hard to believe its been a year. Never Forgotten, always with us. Miss ya buddy. Steve, Kathee & the GT Family.
  15. I think the brits might have something to say about that one, no?
  16. work good or are possible? May be two different questions. Perhaps a Fury member can answer. In my experience at Perris, we trained, 3,5,6,7,9,11,14, 15, 16, 17, 18, and 21. Some of these can be a bit tricky depending on ability. We also trained some more successfully than others. Some can also be done as 3 ways pretty well (i.e. 15, 21).
  17. OMG - Harry played the baby-killer card!!! Dating yourself a bit by the Juggs reference!!! FWIW - As a long time 4-way junkie and now judge, one of whom judged R4 during the SCSL meets, they were (a) legally in Intermediate and (b) in the division where they belonged. Nuff said. I really dislike seeing Jon's name even mentioned in this light. He is a class act all the way and I would venture to guess that a fair amount of consideration was given to the appropriate class in which to compete. Congrats to R4 for a solid, clean performance at Nationals. Steve GT
  18. Fly Free Big Red. Our thoughts and prayers are with Janna and their friends and family. Steve, Kathee and the GT Family.
  19. I second Kirk - any Open FS Scores? Steve GT

    Especially given the glowing report on NSL today.
  21. So that everybody is aware, this would be a "Guest" team, correct?? Congrats on both the World gold and the Brit gold. Not a bad year!!! Steve
  22. I may be late to the party, but if you are intersted in scoring points, as opposed to learning, and want the best transition exits that are close to bullet proof, Ben is correct. Launch the P (sidebody) or the H (bow). If you want to work in the tunnel effectively, learn the letters (randoms) and the numbers (blocks). Steve GT
  23. beautiful!!! I was always a big fan of Meeker-font loop - meeker. Very much a crowd favorite. Steve GT
