nz (meachen @ Wellington City Council, Wellington, New Zealand) *THE STAGEDIVE SCORE CHART* *************************** This chart will help you accurately judge any stagedive at a show. Descriptions of the following dives appear after the chart. Remember that most divers MAYBE get 30 points in a whole show.... HEIGHT ABOVE CROWD (ft) +=====+=======+======+=======+=======+========+===========+ DIVE | 0 | 1-3 | 4-6 | 6-10 | 11-20 | 21-40 | 41+ | =======+=====+=======+======+=======+=======+========+===========+ Feet | 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 5 | 8 | 10 | -------+-----+-------+------+-------+-------+--------+-----------+ Cat | 1 | 3 | 5 | 8 | 10 | 15 | 20 | -------+-----+-------+------+-------+-------+--------+-----------+ Swan | 2 | 5 | 8 | 12 | 15 | 20 | 25 | -------+-----+-------+------+-------+-------+--------+-----------+ Back | 2 | 6 | 10 | 15 | 18 | 23 | 28 | -------+-----+-------+------+-------+-------+--------+-----------+ Bomb | 3 | 8 | 13 | 18 | 24 | 30 | 38 | -------+-----+-------+------+-------+-------+--------+-----------+ F.

Lamest, also hurts a lot of people if you're wearing combat boots (uncool). Most first-timers are feet-firsters. Cat - Jumping forward, arms and legs spread, facing the crowd, like a cat does when tossed in the air. The vast majority of divers fit this category. Swan - A real swan dive, with feet together and arms spread behind. Usually takes a lot of height to perform well. Back - like a swan but back-first. Aim is critical; miss the crowd and you're in serious pain. Bomb - Just like the "water-bomb" dive in a swimming pool, the idea to clear away as big a hole as possible. Effective in eliminating jerks. Timing critical - if you're seen by the crowd, it's over; The only one to get corked will be you. F. Flip - Forward flip. Usually done from higher stages with tight security; the trick is to get your feet away from the bouncers as soon as possible, hence the need for the forward flip. B. Flip - Back Flip. Rarer than the F. Flip, usually done in haste due to radically changing crowd positions. Also requires greater gymnastic skills. Heli - So named because of it's helicopter-blade-like twist, this dive gains the most points for sheer level of difficulty. The idea is to

get your body whirling like a helicopter blade. Warning-highly dangerous, but looks incredible. Best done from very high altitiudes. Bonus Points: -----------Add 2 points per dive for wild screams / arm-leg gestures. A cat dive resulting in a handstand on the crowd adds 5 points. Dual-diving with a partner gains 5 points each. Negotiating your way to the top of a monitor speaker stack and diving from there - add 5 points. Diving on a bouncer (takes guts) - add 10 points. Somehow getting to the light rack above the stage and diving from there gains you 15 additional points. Penalties --------Landing on another diver, subtract 2 points. Misdirected dive into "curious onlooker" portions of the crowd - minus 5 points. Diving on a performer onstage - uncool! Minus 10 points. -X-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-X Another file downloaded from: The NIRVANAnet(tm) Seven & the Temple of the Screaming Electron Burn This Flag realitycheck Lies Unlimited The New Dork Sublime The Shrine Planet Mirth Taipan Enigma Zardoz Poindexter Fortran Mick Freen Biffnix Rif Raf Simon Jester 510/935-5845 408/363-9766 510/527-1662 801/278-2699 415/864-DORK 206/794-6674 510/786-6560
