Cinco De Mayo

BOOGIE NEWS - May 2007

Host Dropzone

For the 1st time ever outside of the World Freefall Convention, a gathering of the coolest skydiving brother/sisterhoods will take place at SKYDIVE CAROLINA!  located in Chester, South Carolina.


This "Family Reunion" will be comprised of bunch of really fun groups. These groups include the Rodriguez Brothers, the Pink Mafia, the Muff Brothers, Team Flying Hellfish, and Team Dirty Sanchez.


Aircraft will include a Casa, a Super Otter, and a hot air balloon. Jump rates will be $22 for the CASA/Otter and $80 for balloon jumps. Balloon jumps will be by pre-reservation only so book now. The closest commercially served airport to the DZ is Charlotte, North Carolina (CLT).


Boogie Registration

Boogie registration will be onsite only this year. Once again with your registration the first 100 (possibly a few more) will receive Boogie Packs. There will also be a limited number of sombreros available, please bring your own sombrero if you have one and don't forget to decorate it! With your registration you become eligible to win door prizes, partake in the "special beverages", receive a boogie pack filled with fun stuff, piñata whacking privileges and more. Cost of registration will be $20.


Video Contest

Once again, we will be holding a Video Contest. Entries to the video contest must be 10mins or less and based on a theme that relates to any of the brother/sisterhoods. What that means is up to you. Please submit your entries to the DZ by Friday June 16th. The videos will be aired after dinner on Saturday the 17th, and the PRIZE will be well worth your efforts.


Sombrero Contest

Many of you are no stranger to the ways of the brotherhood. Be sure to pre-decorate your sombreros as there will be prizes for the most unique and interesting sombreros at the Boogie.



Time permitting the Rodriguez Brothers will be conducting Piñata whacking on Friday night.


Acceleration Station Feast!

A special Feast is being prepared Saturday June 17th by Delsur Rodriguez, master Chef of the dropzone. Nobody will walk away hungry.




Make this known to our organizers or for that matter, any brother or sister at the boogie. We will be doing organized initiation dives throughout the weekend. There will be a tent set up where you can meet with any/all of the brotherhoods and get your initiation dives organized. If you want to get really crazy, why not get on one of the "multi-family" dives Saturday at 12:00 & 5:00pm. Knock out those initiations in just one dive! Initiation ceremonies will take place Saturday night at midnight at the "Altar" for the Rodriguez Brothers. Be sure to bring extra bottles of "Cactus Juice" The dreaded Cactus Juice machine will once again be at the boogie… it chills the nectar to a cool 5 degrees!




Once again, the host of our boogie!
