Skydive Cross Keys Poker Run (4-way)
Crystal Sanchez, Matt Zwicker, Mel Curtis
$30 per person plus the price of jumps
$25 per jump
The CK Poker Run is a 4-way competition where each team (ideally consisting of 2 belly flyers, 2 freeflyers and a videographer) attempts 5 pre-determined skydives, scores points, and the 3 highest scoring teams are awarded gold, silver and bronze skydiving medals in an award ceremony at the end. The Poker Run element of the day involves teams nominating ONE member to play a hand of Poker in front of a crowd with the cards their team has collected throughout the day. There is a $300+ cash pot for the winning hand, comical emcee-ing, and hazing rituals involving of tequila. Basically, Shenanigans ensue! Melanie Curtis will be coaching all teams on the ground for tips and tricks to best execute the exits and dives and of course to answer any questions. (So you’ll learn some stuff too – take advantage of the coaching!)
You are encouraged to put together teams mixed with newbies and experienced flyers because the scores are handicapped based on average jump numbers, so lower-skilled teams will get a higher handicap and thus have an actual competitive chance.
The skydives are fun and unique formations, with some options to back fly for the freeflyers, some hybrid stuff, some advanced bonus moves for bonus points if the team wants to go for it… lots of weird stuff that will be super fun to try do.
Q: What if I have 3 belly flyers and only 1 freeflyer. Can I still participate?
A: Yes, any combo will work really. It’s just a suggestion for best execution results, but an all belly team that’s highly skilled can also be strong contenders.
Q: What time does it start.
A: Be there by 9:00AM for briefing,
Q: Do I need a separate videographer…(a 5th jumper) on my team?
A: Yes, usually the team chips in and covers his/her slot. Sometimes experienced videographers also request a fee for the day.
