Skydiving in San Carlos is breath taking! Climbing to altitude over the coastal mountains of Sonora, having the deep blue Sea of Cortez as backdrop while in freefall, and landing on the pristine white beach adjacent to the hotel makes skydiving at the "South of the Border" Boogie truly unforgettable.

|Pink Boogie Tozeur in Tunesia
February 1-17, 2000
The International Pink Parachute Club in Vienna, Austria will be hosting a Boogie with its famous Pink Skyvan at the beginning of February 2001 in Tozeur in Tunesien, North Africa. Tozeur is an Oasis situated at a salt lake, with 20,000 inhabitants and a huge airport with only two to three flights going in or out per day, thus an ideal place for skydiving.
There is also ideal skydiving weather at this time of the year at the edge of the Sahara desert, with an average of only 50 minutes of rain per month and less than one day without blue skies. Day temperatures are around 25 degrees Celsius (77 degrees Fahrenheit) but in the nights it can get as cold as 10 degrees Celsius (50 degrees Fahrenheit).
There will be load organizing for beginners and advanced bellyflyers and freeflyers. LO's for the FS skydivers, among others, will be Inga Leschek, Bärchen Jastram and Thomas Lewetz. Freeflying will be organized by "Schurke" Wuzi Wagner and Rook Nelson, freeflyer from Chicago. There will be skyball jumps for freeflyers and bellyflyers as well. They also offer a special "FS Course Light" for jumpers who recently got their license or who are relatively inexperienced.
