Hey Doug,

What I have to say some may not want to hear. Does something need to be done? The statistics indicate yes. What we do is the question.


Rich Winstock

Statistics indicate that skydivers are killing themselves under perfectly good canopies for a variety of reasons.

I remain to be convinced that anything will improve much if the proposals are implemented. For sure, nothing will be achieved if DZOs aren't willing to enforce them.

What seems to be missing is a clearly articulated argument that the details of any WL BSR actually addresses the problems identified in the statistics, an indication of how it is to be effectively enforced, and some evaluation and improvement protocol so we can see if it's actually working once it is in place, and tweaking it to fix any issues that become apparent.

I think the BOD has been correct in holding off on this until the proposals meet some minimum standard for imposing a rule change on the community.
