Interesting award or license numbers Can't Post

"Back in the day" I docked 10th on a womens 9 way (I am a guy) and submitted my WSCR application. Several weeks later I received WSCR #1000 in the mail and a small write-up in Parachutist magazine. Someone out there has D-1000 and SCR #888.... or better yet, anything with #666Cool. Anyone else have anything like that?

My lowest number is CCS 41, received on a world record stack.

When Elsinore was The Cy Perkins Parachute Club I was given the membership #666. I used to sign my tickets "The Beast" and they knew who it was.

I have Golden Eagle #157, but that's only because very few people who earned it even applied for it.

Back in the day, there was a 100 Mile Freefall Club...
As one progressed to 200, 300, 400, etc. a new number would be issued (not unlike Gold Wings).
I'm out of town so I'd have to look up my 100 Mile number to see what it was - but it was fairly low.
Not sure when the club vaporized, but still have the certificate and membership card.

MBPB #75

Mr. Bill PiggyBack - These numbers were given out in the early 80's by Curly Rowe??? (I'm not sure if it was him, I'd have to dig out my card)

Howard has me way beat on the CXM. I am CXM 505.

True.
Curly Roe was my first JM at Muskogee in '81.
He retired from skydiving about 4-5 years ago and happily lives in Florida playing with the grandkids.

Many years ago I attempted to break the world parachute endurance record which was then held by Woody Binnicker to whose post I am responding right now.

Woody held the record for some time. Come on, Woody, tell us about it.

Didn't you also set a record for most harness chaffing, Woody?

I currently hold the world record for parachuting night pukes, which, interestingly, no one has ever attempted to break.

Hopefully, no one will ever try to break my record. You can read about it here: http://aicommand.com/PukeDuke.htm

I got my 100 Mile Freefall at Xenia Ohio. George Raby was the guy that organized it.

Well, not much to tell except we met with Gene Paul Thacker over a couple of beers and decided we would try and set an endurance parachute record in a 24 hour period. GP wanted to do it but the Army pulled the aircraft at the last minute. Bobby Frierson and myself had the dropzone at Barnwell and aC-180 and 182. We had alot of help from and the Clubs from Bragg, N.C. and S.C. All of the harnesses were ill- fitted and I was burning pretty bad after 150. They decided to spray me with novicane every 10 jumps and that helped but after 201 and 17i/2 hours I was done. Btw Bobby Frierson D 911 flew the entire time and the City of Denmark where we lived at that time is letting me but a monument in the park dedicated to the record. First weekend in April.

Move your courser over the copy and the pointer will become a spyglass with a plus in the middle. Left click and the picture should get bigger.

Works for me using Firefox.
