SSI Northeast Double-Header
by Allen H. Williams

The Second Annual "Northeast Double-Header" Freefly/Skysurf Competition is hosted by Skydive New England & Skydive Cross Keys. It consists of two events both endorsed by SSI Pro Tour. The event starts with the Skydive New England SSI Free Fly and Skysurf Competition, August 26-27 at Skydive New England in Lebanon Maine, home of the fastest climbing jump ship in the North East.

It is a low key SSI competition for teams to warm up or to get their first taste of SSI Free Fly competition in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Winners still get real SSI points from real SSI judges good for seeding towards the X Games but the prizes are smaller (no cash).
This first weekend is followed by 5 week days of "tuning" up your routines, leading to the run for the money at the Pro Am at Cross Keys, NJ on Labor Day Weekend. This is the biggest free fly competition in the North East. These competitions are for everyone with an intermediate and advanced class. Many first year teams attend as well as seasoned pros. Teams such as Monkey Claw, Psycho Cirkus, Gravity Pirates, Psycho Kenisis, Gravity Flux, and Stir Fly are also expected to attend.
But there is more! After two competitions and a week of training, Freaks just wanna have fun! The now famous Monkey Claw Free Fly Jam starts right after the competition ends.
Official Competition Aircraft is a Super Otter. The entry fees is $30 per team member (plus jumps). The team discount is $2 per jump.
The first venue, Skydive New England, is a short drive to the beach as well as the beautiful White and Presidential Mountain ranges both prime vacation locations. Cross Keys is close to Philadelphia and Atlantic City. So consider taking a one week (ten days with Labor Day on Monday) free flying vacation to compete, to boogie, to remember. Hope to see you there, until then keep fly'n freaky.
