Remembering the Tubesteak Boogies

Recommended Posts

In the early 80s there were a number of Tubesteak Boogies organized by Shoobi Knutson that were held in Brooksville, Florida and later at ZHills.  The boogie was by invitation only and featured color coordinated sequential jumps that were a thing of beauty in the air.  Shoobi was gracious enough to invite me to film them and has been after me for quite some time to get them out of Kodak slide carousels and into a format that can be seen by everyone.  Of the  4000+ 35mm slides I have of various skydiving meets, many of them are of the Tubesteak Boogies.  In order to avoid having to go to the Smithsonian to borrow a slide projector, I bought a slide scanner and am now in the process of scanning the best of them.  Attached below is one of them.810.thumb.jpg.1e44d3f2bd7fe6be00d500e163577348.jpg
