Would you consider 1st Sunset Load a beer event? Can't Post

Jumped my first sunset load today (as a S/L student). Would you consider this an event that requires a donation of beer?

You foolish boy....you ask a bunch of beer guzzlers such a question and expect an honest answer?.

Take it from me, all the ones who answered yes are lying through the bottom of their empty beer glasses....

You have much to learn, young skywalker......

You said the "F" word. Beer!

Soon you will learn to not use that nasty word on the dz. In the meantime, I like Hefewiezen. Laugh

The question is, did you get called on it, as in "hey that your first?" Or did you broadcast that it was your first and then someone yelled Beer!?

If one of those things did happen, well then your called out on it and in the time honored tradition, you owe Beer!!!!

It used to be an honor to be called out on a case, now days the younger crew is a bunch of pussy and all try skirt around the time honored tradition in many ways, pretty sad really.

Now if your just a dumbass and asking if you own just cause, well then you owe for just being fool hardy enough to ask...Tongue

No to both questions - I just personally felt that it was a Beer! jump but couldn't find it listed in the Beer! rules. I also think it went unnoticed as one of the jumpers on the load was jumping his 100th

I have no problems being called on a case - if I owe it, I buy it. In fact, I'll occasionally buy a case in advance because as a student I know it's pretty likely that I'll screw up at some point and I wouldn't want people to wait for Beer! until the next time I'm there.

Now if your just a dumbass and asking if you own just cause, well then you owe for just being fool hardy enough to ask...Tongue

But as a student we were exempt until we finished AFF. But from solo status to A license I learned to just smile and nod and not say a word. Bought a lot of beer before I learned that.

Only through AFF NOT the 56 jumps after AFF it took me to get my A license. FOR AFF students only beer offense is leaving your log book >I guess my dropzone just ROCKS!

By the time you get down from the sunset load all the beer bought by others is going to be gone. You figure it out.

so a simple answer would have been NO

added to that list should be one that I usually encourage.....1st freefall on a gradual program, either IAD or static line as it is a major 1st !!!!

Yes, that is indeed a beer-worthy event - but 9 times out of 10 you can use the "student exemption" and get away with it.
