Sky Diving Rally 2010 - Cape cod

Cape Cod Unit is putting together a Skydiving Rally for first weekend in Aug 2010. Tandem jumps are 235, if we have ten or more, 215. Robinson R44 Helicopter rides 50 bucks.
Nightly Bonfire (15 Pallet's high) and BBQ with the Skydiving Club. nominal charge for water and limited electric NO CHARGE for no hookups!
Should be a BLAST. Met them recently, they were THRILLED to have Airstreamers (hey, airplanes without the wings) with them and onsite.
Let me ask you all, seeing we do not have enough power to run a/c's....would the first weekend in October be better? Personally I like to run the heat rather than the A/C and Bonfires are nicer in cooler weather?
Thoughts? Interest?
Thanks
Dan

Man I wish we lived CLOSER!

I haven't jumped out of a perfectly good airplane since I was active duty Army almost 15 years ago. That would be a hoot even if we were forced to do tandem jumps.

Sounds like an interesting time, just so you make sure no one aims for "the long shiny things below."

Ellington CT,
and no I was there, the Airstreams won't be that near the zone.
any more than a chance of a hailstorm.........?
I'd say we'll be parked 100ft from landing zone, and Airport, which was sadly lacking in activity, except for the jump planes

Dan,

How many members are USPA rated skydivers? I'm a USPA 'D' license holder. Let's do some RW at the rally.
Debbie doesn't jump and neither does Belle.

Dan,

United States Parachuting Association is the regulating organization for parachuting activities in the US. They also lobby for all things related to sky diving.

'D' License: The fourth and highest level or license issued by USPA. USPA D-license holders may participate in all competitions at the national level, apply when qualified for all USPA instructional , proficiency ratings, and participate in high-altitude jumps.

RW or Relative Work or Formation Flying:1: Aerial maneuvers by two or more freefalling skydivers with each other, usually to form geometric formations.
2: Competition discipline of flat-flying.

Say hi to Bob.

The Build-Up to the Dive!

Dan, we better make some temporary arrangements with the Region One and CCMU Treasuries if Trevor is going to "take a dive". This will be one fun time.

We've gotta have a back up plan for you too! That might mean a special election?

Lots of build up to the time of the jumps!

I am going to watch from a distance....on the ground.

Hey Dan.........You are "The Man"!


Skydiving Rally......WOW....Let Cape Cod Unit rock with thrill and adventure. Go guys.....this should be a lot of fun. I might have to enjoy from ground level. This is something I always wanted to do, but with a 14 year old daughter still at home, don't know if I'm ready to risk it.

Hey Dan
You are the Adventure Man. If we go I volunteer to take photos...from the ground.
But it sounds like fun. Thanks to Bob again for all he did while at the Region One Rally. It was fun.

Here's a new link to the skydive association at the airport. The old link appears broken.......
Connecticut Parachutists Inc, Skydive in Connecticut, Tandem, Accelerated Freefall, Come Make Your First Skydive in RI,MA,ME
I'm really hoping we get some good professional pics and at least get one published in the BB.......hopefully those sorts of things will boost our image to new possible members
guess that would be the ADVENTURE part of Fun Fellowship and Adventure

hopefully within the next few weeks we will have a flyer out for signing up for the Skydiving Rally. Right now we are limited to 10 sites, with limited electric and water. I'm working on getting some more sites, but they would be dry camping. Can I get a heads up on how many here think they will attend?
Thanks
Dan

Rivet I'm interested!

Have always wanted to do this! One Airstream, one jumper, three people.
Let us know when you firm up the dates

We often dry camp, no worries, though I would have to be able to run my genie for a few hours during the day (Honda 2000, fairly quiet). My batteries are not great, probably sat on the lot too long, trying to get one more season out of them.

Thanks!
