CarolinaFest 2013 Revisted

At one point over the winter, they called off CarolinaFest.  The DZ manager who had been putting on the show for years left for new opportunities and the DZ Owners didn't want to undertake the event on their own.  Well after a rather large outcry from the skydiving community, they canceled their original cancel and it was back on.  Turns out the DZO's were up to the challenge and they put on a hell of a show!  For another year running their boogie had some of the best LO's in the sport and some of the better pick up jumps happening all over the sky.

Thank you guys for deciding it was worth the effort to make happen and thank you for making this event more amazing than ever!  Looking forward to the next one!

So with that, here is a little recap of CarolinaFest 2013 that also happened back in June, but hey, who's counting....

Jumptown Ladies Record

To follow up with the New England theme of the last post, at the end of June I also visited Jumptown for just 1 jump before I had to run off to another engagement, also a common theme it would seem.  This jump was the first attempt for the new Massachusetts State Woman's Record that was set later on in the day.  The record was shot by Dave Bryce, but I played a roll as the second camera for this load and again, got to catch up with people I haven't seen in years.  Looking forward to getting back up there again soon!

Tiki Bar Weekend

I think it's past time I fired the blog back up.  For those that don't know, we made the big move from Denver to Boston in March and to be honest, just got busy with life.  Nothing wrong with that, but this blog took a back seat for a spell.  So over the next few months I'm going to play a bit of catch up ;)  As I fall back into my old role of being a computer geek as a profession, I also found myself heading up to Skydive New England to sneak in 1 day at their annual Tiki Bar weekend, then it was off to Newport for Labor Day.  Unfortunately for me, that day was doused with clouds and the passing shower.  We managed to squeeze in a few loads before the end of the day so it was still worth it.  It was also great to see some of the regulars there after having not been there for ohhhhh 8 years or so.  Here are a few of the shots.
