Congratulations John Woo Can't Post

He added yet another record to his long and distinguished list of big way accomplishments. The Florida POPS record 76 way! There he is in the formation on page 24 of Skydiving Magazine at 4 o'clock on the end of the 3 man wacker, and on page 25 kneeling in the door of the mock up.

Congrats!!!

I remember the first time I was in the tunnel and John was helping me with that. First 15 minutes of course.

Now I have 3 hours 40 minutes of tunnel time and I'm doing 3-ways and 4-ways in the tunnel. That's more time than I have skydiving freefall now...

I am at Perris P3 bigway camp May 1-4, 2008, so if anyone is there, let me know and say hello!

Good question. We know he's been jumping a lot.

His profile was last updated almost two years ago and at that time he had 2600+.

I'm betting he's at about 2900 now. I should go ask him. Laugh
