Cross Post: Original BASE Patches Can't Post

Crossposted from BASE forum.

Greetings BASE jumpers,

Just to let you know after a recent vacation in California we enjoyed a short stay with Jean Boenish. We were able to convince her to dig through an amazing garage full of skydiving and BASE memorabilia and find a box containing the original BASE patches. These are the patches that originally came with the staff T-shirts at Bridge Day in 1982, any of you who have seen them know they are high quality embroidered patches.

We now have a limited supply if anyone wants one. They belong to Jean and she asks for $15 per patch. If interest is high, we will find someone who is able to reproduce them, already know of two sources that could help us with this.

Please let us know if you want one, the only requirement is that you have made a BASE jump.

Happy Holidays!

Joy and Rick

For those of you who don't know them, Rick Harrison (BASE 38) and his wife Joy are the custodians of the USBA, the BASE number register begun by Carl Boenish.
