I forget that we have new people lurking and posting here all of the time and they wonder "what the hell is a boogie in Belize???"

I am bringing over 100 experienced skydivers to the island to jump for 10 days. We also have tandem jumps available if you would like to experience Belize in a rather unique way. We land just north of the bridge across from Reef Village. Our host hotel is the SunBreeze, across from the airstrip.

Check this out for some great photos... www.skydivebelize.com

And only very qualified jumpers can skydive over and into the Blue Hole. No beginners, sorry.(Everyone always asks!)

We also go to a different establishment each evening, everyone welcome to join!

I will post the party schedule here when we figure it all out.

Thanks for the kind words and it will be great to see the usual suspects in the plane with us!

I am going to need a lot of local help so some of you will be hearing from me very soon. Last year really was the last year, but I have had so many skydivers beg, well, we can't let them down now can we!

reaper, this is good news for your jumpers and for the many businesses that will benefit from your return. Your dates put you in "conch" season - I can just taste those fritters cool

Reaper we still have a skydiver that you left behind last year lol

Re: "Boogie in Belize VI" - 08/27/09 12:02 AM

This is so tempting---
Flight: $700
Lodging: $600
Food & walking around money: $700
Jumping out of a perfectly good airplane: $350 (a guess)
Perhaps this being the last opportunity to do this on Ambergris Caye?
Yep-PRICELESS!!!!

I see no money set aside for Jager or Belikin. Might need to hire a new accountant.

Belikin-A couple of trips to the warehouse will suffice.

So, where is the Reaper Cup? Last I knew it was incognito.

Re: "Boogie in Belize VI" - 08/27/09 02:29 AM

Hey PB, The "Reaper Cup" has been missing for 2 years.It cost me 3 hours and $8.92 to build it...it's priceless!

And there will be full time tandems available in San Pedro in November of 2010. But you really don't want to miss this party!!!

Re: "Boogie in Belize VI" - 08/29/09 12:07 AM

Hey Reaper,

Maybe you should order one of these for the winner to wear instead of awarding a trophy? They would certainly look intellectual!

Oh, by the way, the squirrel can be optional.

Re: "Boogie in Belize VI" - 10/13/09 06:26 PM

Here is an update for the upcoming boogie.

As of now I have over 120 people signed up and the phone is still ringing off the hook!

More on the party schedule later...

Re: "Boogie in Belize VI" - 10/13/09 09:43 PM

Reaper,

I am so excited you are doing this again!! How does one sign up? I would hate to book for this trip and not jump! Is it possible to request to jump with Bill & Becky McGhee? Becky's NOT gonna chicken out this time!

Thanks in advance - Susie

Posted By: reaper

Re: "Boogie in Belize VI" - 10/13/09 10:54 PM

Susie,
Just come by the SunBreeze Hotel and we will get the three of you signed up and out!!!

See you there!!!

Re: "Boogie in Belize VI" - 10/14/09 03:07 PM

Unfortunately, we planned our trip before the Boogie was scheduled. Given that we are getting married while there, I tend to believe we might have been a little busy to participate anyway. I'll miss seeing you guys! Sorry to hijack the thread. Anyone that can make it the first week of February, please PM me.
Posted By: reaper

Re: "Boogie in Belize VI" - 11/13/09 06:57 AM

Update;
We have locked up the boogie at 120 participants. 80 jumpers, 4 hotels! I will post the party night line up soon.
Tandems are available for a pre register deal of $200. See Cindy or Jeff at Pedro's.
Buzz, good luck and hope to see you in SP for a "congrats beer".
Poker tourney to benefit the town library at Pedro's Inn on Sunday the 21st. I'll be starting a separate thread on that soon.
If you are new to this event, we jump from February 20-March 1, 2010. Meet us at the SunBreeze Hotel if you would like to make a leap.
The landing area is just north of the cut. Coco Loco's bar is the official viewing are for the landings.
See you all there!

Re: "Boogie in Belize VI" - 11/13/09 03:34 PM

Hi There - A newbie to the Boogie question. Sounds like the event is so popular, why would there be the 'last time'? It seems like the popularity would support it happening every year, or at least every two years. Just wondering? thx!
Posted By: Amanda Syme

Re: "Boogie in Belize VI" - 11/13/09 03:40 PM

As the island develops it becomes more and more difficult to guarantee a safe and practical landing zone.
Posted By: ScubaLdy

Re: "Boogie in Belize VI" - 11/13/09 03:42 PM

Reaper - I'm happy to hear that but do you know that the beachfront lots from Coco Locos bar past the barge have been fenced in?
Posted By: reaper

Re: "Boogie in Belize VI" - 11/13/09 08:37 PM

I have been in contact with Mr. Tabony regarding the landing area. We will remove all of the obstacles for jump week.
Good question gabby. Last February I decided to stop the boogies. It is a LOT of work and costs a LOT of money upfront to make successful. However after all of the jumpers begged me and my friends in San Pedro urged me, I gave in and decided to host it again. There will be a full time skydive business in SP late next fall and it may be easier to then run the boogie. As of now I co ordinate the entire thing from San Diego and have MANY, MANY fine people in Belize help me out.
This year we will be bringing a lot of first time visitors to the island. It is going to be a great party as usual!
The "Shark" wil be in town on February 19th!
Posted By: reaper

Re: "Boogie in Belize VI" - 12/23/09 06:56 AM

Well kids, the party nights are nearly inked and the schedule will be out soon!
I have just done a count and we are at 132 participants!

Tandems are $225usd and $110usd for video.
Doug Forth (cute blonde Canadian Champion all of the ladies request!), Nick Boyd(took Walter), Kai Wolf(german Champion,great photo on here of him with Rosie Syme) and new to the boogie Nick Fenner (all around great guy) will be our tandem instructors. We have worn Lyal out and he may just come down to go fish with Eddie Ancona!
Whitney Robinson (Great Fun, you guys all know her), Lindsay Showalter(She rocks!), Aidan Walters(Canadian Champion) and Johnny Lemming (World Champion) will be on video flying circles around you guys!

The usual cast of characters are also in this year, along with a LOT of first timers to the boogie.

More on the party nights soon. And don't forget the poker tourney at Pedro's!!!!!!

Re: "Boogie in Belize VI" - 12/23/09 04:23 PM

We are getting psyched up! But Reaper, can you request that Dr. Tina come for a visit at the same time - that would make my year!

We have been watching the fun dvd that you made last year - what a great all around show - great music, fun people, showcasing our beautiful country. Wow!

Looking forward to seeing the whole crowd.

Re: "Boogie in Belize VI" - 12/23/09 06:01 PM

What! No Dr. Tina!? I will e-mail her!

Re: "Boogie in Belize VI" - 12/23/09 08:57 PM

So glad you guys are coming back! My first jump was last year - loved it, can't wait to do it again. Can I pleeeeease have Pierre again as my tandem???!! Sign me up and strap me in =) Available to help with any planning / preparation - group party at Fido's? Discount at Asian Garden Spa? Seafood buffet at Nautica? Let me know!!!
Posted By: reaper

Re: "Boogie in Belize VI" - 01/10/10 12:00 AM

We will be planning a bash at Fido's as usual for Friday the 26th. Spread the word about the tandems. Everyone can just come by the SunBreeze to sign up.
Pierre can't make it this year, sorry. He's working lots in Canada to pay for his new log cabin house.

Here's a boogie update. We have 132 people arriving on the island starting February 15th.

If you would like to join us for a tandem just stop in at the SunBreeze and we will get you up or an appt. to go. Don't phone the SunBreeze, just come by.

All of the skydivers are bringing school supplies for the Town Library. I encourage all of you to do the same!

On Thursday, Feb. 25th, we will have free "One Barrel" drinks. Yes...free. Live music also.

For you rookies, we will be landing our parachutes up at the big open field across from Coco Locos bar and Reef Village, just North of the bridge. Everyone is welcome to come watch. Please stay out of the landing area. (And yes, we have all of the permission in place to remove the fencing for the 10 days.)

I'll be in SP on February 15th. You know where to find me!!!


Rest up!!!!

Well kids, it was another amazing time in San Pedro!

Thanks to everyone that came out and made a leap with us.

There are a few people that deserve a special shout out;

Tropic Air for all of their assistance.

Charlene at BC's for providing a great BBQ as always.

The SunBreeze Hotel staff for everything they do to help out.

Pedro's Inn for hosting the poker night(a HUGE success) and the "One Barrel" night.

Jan and Sandra at Portofino for their amazing support.

Island Adventures Golf Carts for great deals.

Tanisha Tours for another year of amazed Lamanai and cave tubing guests.

All of the night spots that hosted us, thanks!

The Bowens for providing ice cold beer poolside on a weather day. Thank you Dixie. It was wonderful spending time with both of you that afternoon.

The girls at Lime for their continued support.

Aqua Dives for a great, safe time twice at the Blue Hole and providing our safety/transport boat.

The BDF Air Wing for hauling us out to the Central Farm Airstrip "Fly In" for a demo jump.

Estel's for great fry jacks and coffee each morning. And for their continued support as always.

The Blue Water Grill for an amazing welcoming dinner as always. And to Cool J's band for rocking the house!

Coco Locos bar.

Rosalie Staines from the "Oapn Paki" show for doing a great 2 hour special on the boogie.

And a special thank you to Minister Heredia and the BTB for their wonderful support.

And of course to Perris Valley Skydiving from California for bringing the "Shark" all the way to Belize!

I hope you all had as much fun as our group did. I think we had the best boogie EVER!
