Alex certainly made a big impression at Perris. We get a lot of teams and tourists who save up their money for dream vacations and serious training camps, but Alex must have broken all the records.

I'm sorry I never met him. I think I saw him in Square1 once, it seems appropriate that he was spending more of his dough on another canopy he was ordering.

Did anybody know the guy ? I'd hate to think he's only remembered for how rich he was. The guy must have had some kind of heart & soul.

Anyway, na zdorovya i sinee neba Alex.

Your humble servant.....Professor Gravity !

You don't spend the kind of money he spent and get remembered for much else but yes I think he broke just about every record. Probably set a few that will not be broken anytime soon. I don't remember his personal best but I believe it was over 40 jumps in one day. He was going a little too fast for his own good though. Numbers do not reflect experience in all cases. I believe you need time to be seasoned as well. Too bad his candle burned out so fast.
