       We still have about 40 slots available for the Texas State Record
120-Way on August 15-17 at Skydive Dallas.  Last year's attempt at Skydive
Spaceland built to 109.  There was some excellent work done in 2002, so this
year, we expect to build the 120-Way record early, and move on to Sequentials!
