Re: [sacex250] Does your DZ try to guilt you if you have a cutaway?
In reply to:
Exactly. The DZO is responsible for normal, anticipated use of the rig; it's legally considered the "cost of doing business" even if it's in the waiver that the renter is responsible for loss or damage. The DZO would lose the case in small claims court, so make him go through the trouble of suing if he's being that big of a knob about it.
You must be very popular at your DZ?? However, I like to think that "Skydivers" are better than that! When one of us is struggling, the rest of us help!
I've been around this sport for probly longer than you've been alive. I can walk onto any DZ in the world, and I'm always welcomed with open arms!!!! This is a community we're talking about. You lose someone's gear, you take responsibility and Man-Up.
These (DZO in this case) are our friends and brothers in sport. Respect and friendship are the only requirement for membership into this community.
