Happenings

The Perris Drop zone has been quite busy. A production crew arrived not too long ago from England. They will be here for the next week or so, shooting a commercial for the European auto market.

The production has chosen big way formations as their main theme. The flyers will build shapes that will resemble car parts in the sky. Check out their website and get an impression of what was going on.

Since there is a lot going on, the organizers asked me to get an overall-view of the skydive. Filming it as a regular big way, I'm able to assist the flyers, so that they may de-brief their jumps.

New Sponsor

I would like to welcome Go Fast!

my newest sponsor. Go Fast! is the energy drink for athletes. It gives you long lasting energy for enhanced performance, without the usual "crash" that most energy drinks do.

Past Events

Just a week after the Fury 8-way project, I attended the SCSL at Elsinore. The Fury team did not compete as a whole; however, we did take part in the meet with several player coach teams.

I participated by filming two of the local Perris teams: 4-Shock and Momentum. Perris 4-Shock came in third with an 11.2 average in the AAA class, and Perris Momentum came in first with a 4.7 average in the A class.

Congratulations to both teams for their accomplishments! As soon as the SCSL was completed, it was back to team training with Fury.
