Alright guy's, Juan is already in the lead. I received his pre-registration a week ago. So far he is automatically the winner.

Keep them coming guy's, it is only a few months away. It will be here before you know it.

Alright guy's, just a couple of more months and it will be time. At this point who all is planning on coming? The sooner we know the easier it will be to plan on food and T-shirts so get those registrations in. Spread the word in your area's as well. Thanks for the help and hope to hear from all of you soon.

C'mon guys, let's hear from you.

Frank Moak, Gary V and Wes, Jim Boone, Don Mowery, Guy McIntire, et al. What about some entries? We promise another good time.

If you don't enter, Juan and Bob will win all of the goodies

Jim, your braver than I am to practice the HALO drop. Knowing my luck I would break my diver before the event and not have one to participate with.


Ok everyone, I have Juan and Jims registrations. I did got word from Frank and Bob that they are coming. Don has mentioned he might be coming as well. Keep the information coming. Fannin has been working hard on a plane to haul everyone. Wait to until you see this beast. Haul 4 possibly six jumpers at a time. For sure four. I have got the Oha setup for three. We should have a good setup this year.

Everyone! We have changed our mind on the T-shirts. THEY ARE NOW FREE WITH PRE-REGISTRATION. I have attached the new registration form and we will have it posted on the website soon. We will have them for sale during the event for all of those who do not pre-register. SO, SAVE YOURSELF SOME MONEY AND PRE-REGISTER

Juan and Jim, I will refund you two the money you sent for the T-shirts when you arrive. If anyone else has sent their registration form already and I have just not received it, if you purchased a t-shirt I will make sure your money is refunded for the t-shirt when I see you.

Mike

Hi Skydiver,

I don't know about next month, we plan on coming in July, I do anyway.
Wes went down to the Joe Nall event this past Saturday the 8th
I plan to go down Thursday, a full week is a little much for me.

That was not the intent, sorry. I am goofy enough for both of us. Very happy you are coming here regardless of the month. Light a fire under Wes.

HI Guys,

[]Have to withdraw from the July Skydiver Rally. Dr says my feet, ankles and legs need a rest.
The 23 yrs of wearing Army Jump Boots have taken their toll. Time will make them better I hope!

Juan, looks you will take all the awards as only you and I have registered so far. Congratulations in advance if no one else registers that is!

Won't make Muncie this year either. All that practice for nothing!!![&o]

Hopefully next year everything will be better for me. Look out then!!! [>:] Will keep ya'll posted.

Jim

Jim,
Hate to hear that. [&o] Juan will still have some competitors to compete against, we have had a few others confirm and a few have pre-registered. We still need more to confirm if their coming or not so if you haven't please let us know.

So... Let me get this straight.

You guys are pilots (pretty good, i assume), and you strap a guy (with a chute on his back) to the plane? That's awesome!!!! I would love to see that in person. Is there any events going on around Ct? How much are those little guys? I would love an explaination on this hobby... If you don't mind.... Im a car/truck guy myself, but hey let's face it... New things (especially letting a little guy go from a plane) is right down my alley!!!!

Juan is a movie star ! He will need body guards to keep all his fans out of his way !

Look at all these Girls in Orange Shorts yelling at him !! LOL




Here is a link to one of our sponsors of the 2010 CORKS Sky Dive Rally where you can find information on a couple different sizes of jumpers that are available here in the US.
