  1. I had one of these things and would jump it every now and then depending on how brave I felt. Mine had a line on the rear panel that was used as a brake, I never knew if it worked or not. I remember Jerry Swovlen yelling at me "cut away" when I had packed it backwards one time at Perris.
  2. If any of the guys that were on the nite 16 man that Steve Fielding organized and we made at Elsinore and have the pic that was taken by M. Anderson Jenkins send me an email. I loaned mine to Don Henderson and never got it back from him b4 he passed away. You can send me the pic and I will have a copy made and send it back to you.
  3. M. Anderson Jenkins...….. Good friend, heck of a photographer
  4. I jumped at both of them starting when a 7tu was a radical canopy. Both good but what I liked about Elsinore was the SCR Scrambles every year, that was a REALLY fun time.
  5. Me, Sam Marshall, Dale Thurber and Mike Lee went to his drop zone after the nationals I think in '73. I remember he was flying us up to altitude and his runway had a creek running thru it and he had to get going fast enough to bounce over it on take off and not only that the runway was short and he would barely clear the trees at the end. I had a reserve opening there and was more worried about the alligators than anything else.
  6. I never jumped one but my team member Sam Marshall jumped one quite a bit when we were on Wilds Bunch until he had 3 reserve deployments in a row with one. He packed it in a bag, folded it kind of like a Delta 2
  7. Yes know but the number would be so high would be embarrassed to show it considering when I got it.
  8. I remember jumping with the "Clear Eye Express" from there great bunch of guys
  9. Bummer to say the least, I liked warren and always tried to get him on my loads, a wonderful jumper and A+ guy D4021, C8295, California Parachutist ID card #237, USPA ASO WE/10 7022 7202. Never did send my NSCR from '73 in but still have the old paper work filled out.
  10. When Hank started bujilding canopies he gave Mike Lee and I canopies free of charge and maintained them also because they were blowing out panels now and then. I don't remember which model they were but initially they had an OSI and then he did away with that. I remember one jump using the OSI when I woke up under canopy at about 1K feet wondering where I was. I used one for some time because they packed up so small.

  12. "Hmmm, I was in the first 16 man diamond and the first 20 man papallion in 1974. You sure things weren't already changing when 1977/78 came around? I was also in a 21 man night round in 1975, I had no idea the largest night round was/is only 22. " I forgot about the Diamonds. Yes, they were already changing but not to the degree after the 77/78 period, it really started to change about then. Yep, as far as I know the 22 man was/is the largest but as Steve used to say "no picture, no glory". D4021, C8295, California Parachutist ID card #237, USPA ASO WE/10 7022 7202.

  13. "The only grippers you had, back then, was a handful of material....Sitting up put a lot of tension on grips. " Yep the bigger they were the harder to fly. I remember when we took lengths of garden hose and sewed them into the arm sleeves to help with the grips, boy did that work well! I remember when we did a 20 man for Jerry Kinleys wedding at Elsinore. We had it together by 10K and it was the best flying 20 man I have ever been in! Perfectly round all the way down, not a bobble. I will remember that jump (among others) till I pass away. I'm sure there are some guys here that were on that load and remember it.
