Yeah later in july sometime would be great. My dad should be back in town by then. He would probably want to go again if I do it. Pretty sad my dad has jumped and I haven't. He went for his 45th b-day.

your good, just dont gain 5lbs. otherwise they will say no. sorry
they have a cutoff at 300lbs because of the combined weight of instuctor plus passenger can't exceed some number i dont know, i just know the cutoff.

Its been tried several times, most of them unsuccesfull due to people typing big, but not going through with it. He never said it was free, he mentioned that you could win a skydive no more no less. One really good one several people showing up... and it was a blast

Give the dude a break he posted the numbers and the math works, he is not making money out of this, its just a raffle and he is not hiding it. he even leaves the door open for anyone who wants to go when he is there, which the biggest problem is to find someone to go with you.
thank you, you truly do understand. wanna go? lol

i want to do it mid to late july, latest of mid augest. im okay with july 12th.
any objections?
fine, its set. hehehe

side note, i've been jumping for lil over two years, 628jumps in counting, a coach rating, wingsuit, and i love freeflying. next march i will be able to get my tandem rating, so then i can take ppl out on their first jump!!!!!!!!


Next Question:
Would you rather have just a ride that gos there, or continue with tryin to make this raffel work?:/:

(p.s. skydiving is the most fun you can have with your clothes on, but wait SKYDIVE NAKED!?!) but really, go jump!

ill get off the soap box... and july 26th/27th works fine for me (27th would be better)...

Im in for both a ride down there the jump and then something afterwards, dont count for the rafle but things might just get more interesting that way.

Jloleo, yup that was pretty much the last group ride that I did with MH people. been busy disasembling bike, snowboarding and skydiving so what can I say... ill have to make an appearance one of these days.

Limit is 500# combined wieight, so unless you find a 150# instructor, better start working on loosing some weight.

alright guys/gals! Just got done talking with "Jumpinfly"...

things have changed up a bit!

-We thought it would be nearly impossible to have a raffle with trying to get such a large group and everyone having such hectic schedules!

So were gonna just shoot for a group jump!...the more people that do it the cheaper it is to jump! But each person will be responsible for their own finances, and showing up!

We were thinking, JULY 27TH!! at 11:30!

Now for those that want to meet somewhere morning of and make it a group ride to the group jump...we can arrange that soon!

So who wants to jump! If you wanna jump, do u want to meet everyone at SD Spaceland, or at the "meeting spot" to group ride to SD Spaceland?

i go to skydive spaceland (rosharon,tx 1462@521), skydive houston (waller, tx ) is the website you pulled up. there is only two dropzones in the houston area. i started at spaceland, ive yet to jump at waller though. and oh yes very costly if you want to go all the way. get certified, rated, and not to mention equipment. ive spent a lot of me moneys at the dz. better make sure you REALLY REALLY want it if you start to get certified to jump by yourself, cus it is costly. BUT now my jumps are only $22!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and i can work there as a coach on weekends, so that can help pay for my jumps.

tehehe
