'go in here' hehe
I think it was '80, I went to the infamous Ghoulidge annual Christmas - New Year's boogie. Ended up doing my first demo. They were doing a jump into a nearby country club / golf course for their 'All America Days', or some such. They had someone with a red canopy, and someone with a white one. Mine just happened to be blue. Didn't have a whole lot of jumps at the time (started in '79), so they asked me how my accuracy was. 'Pretty good, I think', I told them, so they said they'd watch me on my next jump. Had a malfunction, cut away to a round reserve. By the time I landed and got back to the hangar, they had retrieved my canopy, straightened it out, had a rig for me to pack it into, and had a rigger arranged to pack my reserve. As soon as I was packed we climbed into a 182 and went to do the demo. Had a great time, they fed us a great lunch, and we flew and jumped back into the dz, where my rig was waiting for me, reserve repacked.
What a place, what an era. And yes, of course I bought the beer...

Do you (or anyone else) remember "Better a transient than me..."?
Had so much fun going to multiple ghoulidge boogies.
DC4 - landing out and having to cross 2X drainage channels
thanks for the memories
Halloween Boogie, 1977.... seldom if ever matched. Tom Piras, Zing, Ernie Butler, etc. in rare form.
I was there.
More from the Danny Peters Collection. Also on Farcebook in Old School Skydiving.
I drove cross country in 82, Ohio to So Cal.
Stopped in Coolidge, tired, hungry, dirty.
Zing fed me, gave me beer, let me use the shower.
