And it starts... Can't Post

Hello!
Well tomorrow will start my addiction. I have my first AFF class and jump Cool I already know I am going to be hooked!!! (I will keep you all informed as to how it goes). Cross your fingers for good weather in Georgia (suppose to be windy)! I am going to Georgia Skydiving Center and so far it seems great. The guy I have been talking to is soooo patient with all my questions. Well just wanted to say hi, so hi!

WelcomeSmile

Don't worry if the weather isn't going to allow you to jump, you still have to be out at the DZ most of the day for your AFF training. Good luck and have fun.

Good luck. The winds may be tricky, but towards afternoon who knows. During my AFF waited all day long for the winds to die and got 3 in one late afternoon, so don't give up, it's fun just to hang.

Hi there and WELCOME! Cool
Like Flyangel said, don't worry 'bout the weather.
I only have five jumps but it's not for lack of effort.Mad
The sky/work/stuff/ doesn't seem to cooperate...Tongue
The point is ( from rookie to rookie) There WILL be days you can't jump, for whatever reason. But you will be able to learn SO much at the DZ from your "Senior Classmates" and Instructors. If you ever get grounded due to weather, there's a pretty good chance there is someone around who is willing/able/qualified to teach you something else you will need a bit further down the road. I have had the good fortune to learn GROUND Training for Categories C, D, and a bit of E while waiting for better weather...I love hanging out at my DZ. ( Hooray for Skydive Orange!!!!!Wink ) but I hope you'll have better weather than we doLaugh
Whether I'm watching more senior jumpers flare, or pack, I'm always picking up something useful. I've found this sport to be addictive and one thing I've heard from everyone, with no exceptions so far... is that no matter how many jumps you have, you'll always be learning. So bottom line from Mr. Overtalkative, enjoy every trip to your DZ even if ya don't get up there in the air. Blue Skies!Angelic

First of all hi to all the GSC people I met!!! You guys are all wonderful, thanks for making my weekend great! As for the jumps... Well apparently it is a bad idea to jump in 30 mph winds Wink Needless to say no jumps made Frown I did get to take the AFF first jump class though and I got it... ARCH & PULL!!! Cool I did spend the weekend at the Georgia Skydiving Center and had a blast! I got to watch people pack chutes and got a chance to ask all the questions I could think of. I cannot wait to go back and get to jump, miss being there already!

More Cowbells!!! Tongue

Hey it was nice meeting you this weekend.

Anoyone who comes out for their FJC and gets completely winded out after finising the course, then Goes Home only to return a few hours later with a case of beer and stays for the rest of the weekend anyway is going to make a great skydiver someday!!

You already got it figured out... If you cant Jump, you can atleast go to the DZ and complain about the weather with everyone else.

And how the hell does Sandor keep getting all these Hottie Students? It must be his HUGE Deck!!

Oh, I cant wait untill YOUR Packing Class!!Wink

It was good to meet you as well. Like J said, you are well on your way to being a skydiver just from this weekends "performance". Look forward to seeing you again soon!

By the way, don't worry...... You will get MORE COWBELL !!!
