Boogie in Belize '09 bids farewell

The Tsunami Skydivers Incorporated says that this year has been one of their most successful for Boogie in Belize, but it is possible that locals might have seen them for the last time.

Even though this year saw the smallest group of skydivers visiting Belize, Richard Grimm from Tsunami Skydivers Incorporated says there are various reasons to consider this year successful. There were 709 jumps this year, all with no injury. In addition there were 84 tandem jumps and all were successful. Jumps were made everyday, something never done during their past five years visiting Belize. Additionally, twelve jumps were made at the Blue Hole, with no injury.

This year, the Tsunami Skydivers Incorporated raised $7,100 Belize during their fundraiser events in San Pedro Town. The San Pedro Town Library received $3,900 plus a large assortment of school supply brought in by the skydivers while Holy Cross Anglican School received $3,200. It is estimated that this year alone, skydiving in Belize generated some Belize $600,000 during their stay and visits in various part of the country.

“We are giving serious consideration about returning to Belize, but there is nothing concrete,” stated Grimm, who claimed that much of the financial crunch is a direct result of the short fall in the world economic crisis. Normally, their return is booked one year in advance and the calendar of events is planned with exact dates, something that was not possible this year.

Tsunami Skydivers Incorporated says that this year’s event was possible because of the many businesses and individuals who wanted the event to be successful. Those businesses includes SunBreeze Hotel, The Lime, Aqua Dive, Tanisha Tours, Tropic Air, Astrum Helicopters, Belize Tourism Board, Pedro’s Inn, Reef Village, Blue Water Grill, BC’s, The San Pedro Town Council and Honorable Manuel Heredia Jr. and many more too numerous to list.

We all broke out our tandem skydive videos last night for a thrill. Rich brought an amazing activity to this island that has been enjoyed by hundreds of people from all over the world.

The revenue generated by the Boogies have been incredible and many businesses on the island have benefited greatly.

The Boogie in Belize will be sorely missed next year. But hopefully the Grimm family will still be visiting.

Rich, Kristine, Lyle, Kathy and all of the other participants of these fun events - it has been an honour and a joy getting to know you.

Hasta la vista.

Glad to hear that the Skydivers made out financially.

However I was really annoyed when the crazy pilot flew at eye level about 25 feet from our balcony twice last Sunday. He really scared my wife and downstairs friend.

The dangers of living on the beach!! Who knew.

One of those flybys was my daughter's fault - sorry they scared you.

Good thing you didn't live here when the Harrier Jump Jets did the same thing. THAT was always a shock.

GBZ, the aircraft may have had a full load of jumpers as well as a full fuel load causing him to take a little longer to establish a positive rate of climb.

Reaper it was great to finally watch the divers appear out of no where and light on the sand. It was amazing to watch. And they just came coming (how many do you cram in to that plane). Thank you for the experience and your kindness to me.

Hmmm, what the future might bring smile
