Poo Smith will join Fiona McEachern and Adrian Lloyd in the FS coaching for people wanting to do everything from star crests to experienced big way loads.

Pink Boogie at Lake Weissensee, Austria
February 24-25, 2000

It's this time of the year again, and if lake is frozen there will be another Pink Boogie at the Weissensee in Austria February 22-25. Start and landing area will be the lake, which is surrounded by 2000 meter [6500 ft] height mountains of the Carinthian Alps. Skydiving above the snowy Alps is as much as an experience as the touch down on the frozen lake. And only if warm weather sets in the boogie will have to move to the nearby town of Linz, which has a paved runway.

The community of Weissensee welcomes the skydivers as every year, and they are well known for their hospitality. Early room reservations are recommended. So if you are one of the tough guys that doesn't mind to jump in ice and snow, get your gear ready for a trip to the Austrian Alps. For more information and boogie reports from the past years check out the IPPC's website at Information about the region can be found at


Mardi Gras Boogie in Moss Point
February 23-26, 2001

Gold Coast Skydivers in Moss Point, Mississippi will be hosting their 7th annual Mardi Gras Boogie February 23-26, a boogie that every year rocks the gulf coast. A $10 registration fee covers your boogie packet, your entry for prize drawings, free beer and pizza Saturday night along with a rocking DJ. This year their fleet consists of our rocket Beech 99, Otter, Grand Caravan and a Super CASA. There will be beach jumps, bonfire, load organizers and southern hospitality at its' best!

Lots of hotels are within five minutes of the DZ and they all offer a skydiver discount. Check out their website at for local telephone numbers.
And if you are interested in participating in a new women's state record, contact Jennifer Jones at Their overall state record is 31, so that shouldn't be hard to beat, and they'll certainly have the lift capacity.
