Is this the same Jon Butterworth that was jumping
in the late 60's? One of the organizers of the first
world 10-man star meet in 1970?

I'm not on facebook so I can't see that page.

 JB had been around for a while when I first started. He did a lot of judging at nationals towards the end of his career. That 10 way meet was talked about quite a bit back in the day when getting a 10 way together was a big deal.

We must be getting old.....

Eeeeee .. He was a good guy.

I always meant to get back down there
but it never worked out.

It felt like a big deal. They invited every country
that had made a 10-man, and some kind of connection
between us all was formed.

Funny that it was 4 Commonwealth countries and
one renegade colony. I used to wonder if that said
something about the British spirit.

There had been talk of some kind of world meet
but New Zealand was the one that did it.

Yes he is that Jon Butterworth who organised the NZ first 10 man meet. It was great, at that time people said it would not happen.
