    Since this is a first, I am into the 2500 ft option. -- assuming with more than 10 ppl we'll be at the $125 or less range.

    UPDATE: I will call the place and see how it works, we are such a large group that it may end up taking all day to get through everyone. People can stick around and maybe we can meet for drinks, or you can leave after you are done. I do not want anyone to feel obligated to stick around, esp if it takes hours for everyone to finish. I will be the one you check into, unless I tell you something different as we get closer to the event. I'm glad you all are excited, thanks for RSVPing!

      Any update? If all 128 of us show up, are they going to be able to accommodate that many? I also need to make arrangements for a child so I need a rough estimate of length of time for the event. Thanks!

    Just my two cents, but might I recommend put a maximum on the number of people who can RSVP for events and posting payment schedules? B/c there's no way 127 people are actually showing up for this. Also, not to pilfer attendees but I'm in another group that's going hang gliding on 8/4. We need more people in order to get the group rate. Payment due 7/25 for those seriously interested.

    I'd be interested in the paragliding if you all do it as it's cheaper.
    I've been hangliding - tandem style and it was really neat running off a mtn in Canada.
