Bummer, Bill was our alternate on the "Wild's Bunch" 10 man speed star team when we went to the Nationals one year. Great guy to jump with and be around.

Al Kruger is still out and about in California. Hasn't jumped much ( if at all ) since he was nearly killed a few years ago on a jump.

I'm guessing Buquor Memorial, but just a wild guess.

Yes, Al had two brothers that jumped and the three of them would put together a pretty quick 3 man so they were the base for the early stuff we did for Steve.

Bob Buquor memorial, I guess BBM would have been better.

I wonder what happened to SCR#: 14365? It used to be in the data base, now it's gone. 14364 & 14366 is documented. I reckon 14365 got deleted?

Does it mean something to you (IE: Is it you or someone you know)? I do the database admin stuff for Bill and if something is missing or messed up, I'm sure I can get it straight for you.

Re: [SCS422] Where are these guys [In reply to] Can't Post

Larry,
I'm in Saint Louis, MO since 1974. Your post got me looking at my logbooks. My notes on the jump you mentioned indicate it was a 19-way organized by Fielding that built to 16, which tied the existing record at the time, with 17th on wrists when a grip was lost.

I have been out of the sport since 1981 except for a brief return in 2007 that ended with hip problems which required bilateral hip replacements, but I remember those good times with good friends.

Regards,
Ralph G. Johnson D-3017
