  1. Hi all! I'll be running several Regional CP Judge Rating courses again this year. (see below for dates) You get the best seats in the house and a great way to learn all the rules of CP. The course is free; you just need to work to earn the rating. No experience is necessary, only a willingness to learn. Non-skydivers are welcome as well. If you're interested pm me here or email me at jo@flight-1.com. Blue skies and safe swoops! ~Jo Meet #1 Skydive Sebastian February 20-21 Meet #2 Skydive City Z-Hills March 12-13 Meet #3 Skydive City Z-Hills April 2-3 Meet #4 Raeford Parachute Center May 7-8[/sly][/sly]

And for the competitors, please remember that these regional meets can’t happen without been staffed by judges and course changers. If you know someone who is at every swoop comp, please encourage them to come out and judge. Competitors are also very welcome to come to the rules portion of the course and get a more detailed look at the rules. I use video examples in my courses so you can see what the judges see while we're on the course. If you're interested pm me here or email me at jo@flight-1.com.

    "My Ads" link not working

    I recently completed a sale for a Cypres I had placed in the classifieds. Since I've sold it, I was going to take down my ad for it. But the "my ads" link doesn't work. I get a page that says: And just going straight to the ad doesn't work either. Not a big deal for me, but thought I'd let the powers that be know.

    Call for new judges!

    It’s that time of year again! Swoop season is here and it’s jam packed full of regional competitions, especially in the US. What we really need to make this successful is more CP judges to support this awesome growth in regional competitions. CP is the most judge intensive competition in skydiving and one of the most fun to judge (though that may be more personal opinion). For anyone interested in learning to judge CP, I’ll be doing FREE training at every FLCPA meet and at the first NECPL meet. We’ll cover the basics of judging and course set up for each discipline. (Just a quick overview of my qualifications for those of you who may not know me, I have been judging CP since 2010, have my FAI rating in CP judging, was technical director for last year’s US CP Nationals, and chief judge for this year’s US CP Nationals.) If you’re interested please send me a PM or email me at jo@flight-1.com. We’d love to have you! And for the competitors, please remember that these regional meets can’t happen without been staffed by judges and course changers. If you know someone who is at every swoop comp, please encourage them to come out and judge. You get the best seats in the house if you’re helping at the events!

    New swoop league

    I'll be coming up for the first meet of the season to train new judges in that region. If anyone up there has been interested in CP judging but hasn't been able to come down south to learn, contact me! We'd love to get you involved!! My email is jo@flight-1.com. Blue skies!

    setting up a speed course

    A friend of mine asked me for some help understanding the diagrams to setting up a curved speed course. I broke it down into all straight lines and made a color coded diagram. I thought I'd share it here in case anybody else might like it. If all of your straight lines as shown here are correct, your arc will be correct. It's shown as having the same entry gate as a straight course & a right hand carve just as an example. But the measurements wouldn't change even if you changed those factors. blues!

    Which DZ for AFF?

    Personally, I recommend going where ever will be your home. It will make meeting people & making long time friends easier. But if you want to do it in FL still, either DZ is great. They have both been home to me, and I love both. Personally if I'm coming down for a fun trip though, I'd go Zhills. It has more non-DZ stuff to do and people stick around the bar later. Deland is still fun though, and there's always someone to hang out with. AFF wise, I didn't go through either program, but know instructors in each. I'd go through either of them myself.

    Spring Break Jumping

    It's Florida. All of them I'd say for a good mix of spring break & skydiving goodness, go with Skydive City or Deland. Deland is closer to better beaches (I prefer East coast beaches & it's near Daytona & not too far from Cocoa) but Skydive City is closer to better clubs. Ybor is great at night. Sebastian should also be thrown out there. It's the closest to the beach, but it's a bit more of a low key beach imo. But they throw great parties themselves, you don't even have to leave the DZ for a spring break feel.
  12. I just moved here and am staying at one of Solly's bunk houses till I find a place. It's really nice and cheap. Just call manifest and ask for Solly

    DZ Camping. What's your setup?

    Back of my tiny old SUV is converted into a bed. The seats are down with ply wood and 4" of padding over them with two sleeping bags, a body pillow to keep me away from the sides of the car and a regular pillow. Stuff goes in the front two seats if I'm in the back. Love my set up. I did the tent thing both in tiny tent and taj ma tent with all kinds of air mattresses and shit. Never took proper care of them b/c was too lazy to clean them properly after the trip.
