Safety Award Can't Post

I wonder how many instructors got a safety award. Who here has one? If you have one, put your name up!

Yes. The Judy. I look at it as a respectable award.

Not likely here. Sleeping with the S&TA kinda negates any possibility of receiving an award when the recipient is chosen by said S&TA. Wink

I do too. I was surprised and really grateful for having received it. They gave it to me for what I have been doing teaching canopy control to low time jumpers and students.

I know what you mean. When I got Skydiver of the Year, it was really special to me because it was a public vote. When I got the Safety Award, that really meant a lot to me, too, because the people who give it to you think you're safe and they appreciate your work.

A few years ago Pacific Skydivers gave a "Safety" award for all the work I did with tandem, IAD and PFF students. They made a big deal out of formally announcing the award at a party and gave me a little engraved plaque.

The next year, they gave the "Safety" award to the guy who organized the most "safety meetings."
Hah!
Hah!
