Sent March 22, 2011 from SDLI
The season has almost begun! Come join us this weekend, March 26-27th
for our first unofficial official opening weekend of the season! From here on out we will be operating on weekends, and by May 1st will be open 7 days a week! WaHOOOOOOOO!!
For those of you who were unable to attend Safety Day, this year’s event was one for the record books and hopefully a welcomed sign of a great season ahead. With over 100+ local skydivers in attendance, the main focus of the event was on canopy control as well as preventative measures that each and every jumper can put into practice to make our skies a safer playground. Let's all congratulate USPA Coach and AFF-I candidate Patty Baronowski who was the recipient of the Chesley H. Judy award and Mirko Consolascio who received his 1,000 jump wings and 12-hour freefall badge.
On that note, anyone who is reaching a milestone in their skydiving career, please be sure to let us know! Who doesn't deserve a little recognition and maybe even a cool pic in Parachutist too
