Finally jumped AFF! Can't Post

Went out to skydive twin cities this morning for my first AFF jump. It was awesome!!
I had great instructors who kept the mood light the whole time.
Jumped from 11K from a Cessna 206....can't wait to get out there and do it again!!

Congratz on making your first jump SmileSmile, I did mine in March and it keeps getting better and better the more jumps I do.

HaHa i wish that worked...but on a more serious note...what's the ettiquette for that sort of thing. Just bring it in when you go to the DZ or only when there is a party or something?

most people require a case of beer for each first, although beer rules USUALLY dont apply during AFF, examples are, FIRST solo, FIRST, jump on a self packed canopy, FIRST cutaway/reserve ride, FIRST jump on a new canopy, FIRST 4 way, 8 way, and 16 way, etc etc etc...multiple firsts can be completed in one day and only one case of beer is required, i did my AFF grad jump, 1st solo, and planned on 1st self packed canopy all in one jump (missed that one due to having to hurry to make a load, and the fact that it took like 30 mins for me to pack the stupid giant bed sheet in the slipperly damn bag, haha)

theres a website explaining beer rules better but i cant rember what it is. . .someone here will post it im sure
