Hi all MI agents,
after the 2 amazing great events in Dubai last year (January and March 2015), here are some news about the 2016 winter camps that we plan to organise in the same place.
Plans for 2016
We would like to propose 1 camp in Dubai at dates 14-19 of March 2016.
The palm DZ is closed on sundays so that's why we propose camps lasting from monday to saturday. This let you arrive, take some rests, visit and then jump until saturday. Flights can be taken at night on saturday so that you will be back home on sunday morning of early afternoon, ready to get back to work on next monday in a good shape !
By default the plan is to go for 16-20 ways out from the Otters like in 2015.
In 2015, all the campers decided to jump over the palm even if the jump tickets were a little bit more expansive than at the desert DZ. The view and quality of DZ really worth it ! Flying 16-20 ways over the palm is doable for us and them.
A "palm" jump !
In 2015, more than 30 people joined the camps and did enjoy the cool jumps, weather and life after the jumps at the "Zerogravity" lounge bar nearby the beach and the DZ.
Wanna go again ?:) You may bring your familly because beach is right next to the DZ !

Budget and costs
Calculating budget for those camps are the same difficulties than dealing with multi variable unknown factors in an equation !:) But we have calculated the most realistic ranges of price according to all the elements we have collected after our 2 camps in 2015.
To make it simple :
Travelling to Dubai is pretty easy and some companies offer some very good rates ranging from 350 eur to 500. Emirates is the best option for sure but some other companies like Turkish airlines can work pretty well also.
The big advantage jumping Dubai is that there is no jet lag (or only a little 3 hours lag which is not such a big deal).
We have found a nice hotel close to the Palm area which fits all the european standards. Costs for a room if shared by two people would be around 350 Eur for 6 nights including breakfast. This hotel is Hotel Ibis AlBarsha, close to the famous Mall Emirate.
No need to rent a car in Dubai. Taxis are the best and cheapest options as using the brand new metros also. Hotel will be just 10 min by Taxi from the DZ.
Pre-register now !
I will be pleased to help you for further details and advises.
Join us for the next winter season ! It worth the trip !
Hope you will join us !
