As most of you know I had collected signatures to get on the ballot for Mid-Atlantic Director. Believe it or not I was 27 short. ( As I was told and I believe them) I am going as a write in candidate. Below is the reason I believe I have earned your vote. No matter who you vote for ( as long as its me ) GO VOTE.. Show USPA we do care....
This is my 25th year of Skydiving... Skydiving has been a major part of my adult life. I have been very blessed with being able to teach many first time jumpers and watch some grow to become instructors themselves and some have become world class skydivers. I have also been part of several world records and was part of the President Bush jump. Those of you, who know me, know I do what I say, and I say what I do. Trying to lead by example (Given my past that's not always easy, but I try) is how I live my life. One of the most recent things was to attempt to have skydiving classified as an inherent risk sport in the state of Virginia, to use this as a national platform to reduce liability exposure to the coaches, instructors, and yes, also the DZO'S. Hopefully, with USPA's help, and your support, we will complete this mission. I am first and for most a skydiver and with your support continue to watch after our best interest.

[In reply to]
Does legally defining skydiving as an "inherent risk sport" also mean that health insurance companies would no longer provide coverage for injuries resulting from skydiving?
I'd hate to have a legal decision for the benefit of a few at a cost of all.
