The Great White North Boogie 2001

Skydive New England and a host of other New England represented drop zones showed up in Z-Hills Skydive City for the annual "get away from the cold" Boogie.
Despite cold, wind and rain, the group managed a to squeeze out enough jumps and a whole lot of partying to call it GOOD.
Dr. Pete was on hand to organize the RW crowd and many of the new jumpers from last season showed up in full force, many from the newly organized Jump IN! group I put together there this past summer for the up and coming jumpers.
All had a good time and were the winners in every nights contest to see who could stay up the latest, make the most noise and consume the most alcohol, while having more fun. They took home a trophy every night.
Skydive City took care of the crowd with nightly all you can eat dinners and a brand new "Bird House" bar. Skydive City has been the home for "The Great White North Boogie" for many years and the staff and overall "resort" accommodations are a one stop shop. The vibe rocks and any group that shows up can concentrate on jumping as just about everything is provided for.
You can tag yourself in the pics on Facebook and you can check out ALL The PHOTOS on the Gallery. If interested in more then just a web photos, get in touch. There are some excellent pieces ready to hang that are now available that are inexpensive when compared to a framed print.
I produced a full down and dirty Great White North Boogie Video as well that's worth a look.
Make sure to tag yourself in all The Harry Photos on FaceBook.
As always, comments and testimonials are greatly appreciated.

First Wing Suit Flight Course

The Harry Parker is in Sebastian Florida for a little while and is available for WingSuit Coaching, organizing and special photo documentation as needed. Email The Harry for appointment and more info. Edited video and Stills are available with all packages.
A weekend or so ago the leader of the free wing suiting world, Jeff Nebelkopf left town on a secret wingsuiting mission, far, far away.
Being in Sebastian I totally swooped one of his first wingsuit students, Matthew from New York.
Seems like the whole DZ from the Ranch showed up as well, almost 35 strong. Everyone from jumpers working on their "A" lic to hard core swoopers and Free fliers were in attendance.
They rented a house locally and just tore it up, partying, jumping and having fun like only Ranch Hands can do.
Matthew did great on his first wingsuit jumps and progressed quickly. We did six all together and he was flying solo and enjoying himself for the rest of the boogie.
Training is everything. We had an outline, worked a lot of problems out on the ground BEFORE we ever jumped and it paid off in the air. His progression was a sure sign of his confidence in preparation and training, not to mention a solid background of currency.
A big thank you to all the Ranch Hands for their smiles, free beer and good times. Gotta love New York Jumpers.
Check out the video Matt's jumps and the antics of The Ranch. You can also tag yourself in the FaceBook Pictures.
Buy a WING SUIT. at Tony Suits. If you come to Sebastian, I can measure you up and have you in your own suit in no time.

Steve Harrington Memorial Boogie

This past September 2010 Raise the Sky produced an amazing tribute to Steve Harrington 11.25.68-11.11.09, who was killed in a skydiving accident during the 2009 US National Formation Record.
Everyone surrounding this project was very generous with their work and time. Taya Weiss, founder of Raise The Sky, is an amazing person dedicated to her mission of giving back to the world. This memorial event created the possibility for a new foundation formulated by Raise the Sky, The Steve Harrington Scholarship Fund.
A great weekend of jumping at Pepperell Skydiving Center, Steve's local Drop zone. Organizers for both RW and Wingsuiting were on hand to help out. Jeff Nebelkopf successfully organized an "S" formation with the pool of Steve's wingsuiter friends. A hard formation to complete and fly took only two jumps to complete surprising not only those on the ground but the jumpers themselves.
Photographers lined up to donate their pictures for this compilation and the future scholarship fund. I was fortunate enough to have the honor of documenting this event and compiling the life of Steve. From the collection of pictures produced from the event and family I was able to produce a complete coffee table book and slide show DVD for the family. My pictures can be found on my Steve Harrington Photo Gallery. The actual book layout will be posted soon after it goes to press with the final approval from family.
This event was a surprise offering and another memorial for me personally on my quest to document the life and times of jumping and the people surrounding it. I never thought I would be doing memorials and here I am learning that celebration of life is in every stroke of ones brush as they paint the canvas of their life. One thing memorials really bring to my attention is not only how fleeting life really is, but how it is uniquely our lives and how our lives are truly our choice.
Once passed on, a persons life canvas in not only a reflection of their creation but also holds the possibility of our own reflection and contemplation of what we are actually doing with our lives.
Skydiving brings celebration in everything, the simplest life has to offer all wrapped up in an adrenaline package. Through the celebration during the memorial of a fallen friend are made the memories that immortalize.
I am always amazed at the camaraderie and deep friendships made through this sport. We are so blessed.

Check out the slide show of the Steve Harrington Memorial Boogie Pictures including some pics of Steve. Do hope you enjoy.

A big thanks to all the Contributing Photographers:

Scotty Burns
Jeff Donahue

Fred Harrington
Jeff Nebelkopf
Matt Veno

Great to see and work with everyone!
