    YOUNG jumpers????

    How many jumpers who started WAY young are on DZ.com? Like me, I started at 6, Jarrett Martin at 9, I know of the Mullins kids and Missy Nelson, Is there anybody else? Carpe Diem, even if it kills me
  2. I just read up on his accident. It sucks, what happened to him. Wonder if he still hangs around dropzones He's representing the U.S. in accuracy at the Dubai International Parachuting Championship right now. Yeah, he still hangs around dropzones. He's been sending some updates to Blue Skies Magazine. There's also a link there to a recent CBS report on him. http://blueskiesmag.com/2013/11/29/jarrett-martin-dipc-updates/ WOW That's fucking awesome. I wanna meet him! Carpe Diem, even if it kills me

  5. Infringements do NOT have to be paid in alcohol. Infringements DO have to be PAID. "Non-drinkers may buy sodas and buyers may make up any part or whole of their purchase in soda for the enjoyment of those non-drinkers." Who said I was a non-drinker? Im tellinn ya, If you're underage, you can't owe. I will be nice and get a case of rootbeer.... But nowhere in your rules says I, as an underage jumper, has to owe beer. Did you even read my post. let me high light the important parts of the two lines of text. Infringements do NOT have to be paid in alcohol.(beer being alcohol) Infringements DO have to be PAID. Pay the fines in anyway you see fit, cookies, cakes, Soda, Beer, Bottled water on a hot day. However you see fit, BUT PAY YOUR FINES. Or do not participate in ANY Fines paid by others. I understand that that is what your post said. All I am arguing is the fact that the rules posted as "proof" that underage jumpers can't get out of the beer fine, didn't actually prove the point trying to be made. I am happy to supply rootbeer, or even get someone to buy beer for me....***Did I just say that out loud? oops*** But my point is, the rules posted had no clause for underage people. Carpe Diem, even if it kills me

  7. Not a chance, see attachment. Sparky This attachment has no clause for the whole under age thing. If you arent old enough to buy beer, you cant owe the shit. Till im 21 you fuckers are getting rootbeer!! Carpe Diem, even if it kills me
  8. The driver was a former racecar driver. Seems like he should have known better Carpe Diem, even if it kills me
  9. maybe trying to show off his "skills" from FATF? I hope he wouldnt be that stupid... But then again ETA: Nevermind, He was the passenger Carpe Diem, even if it kills me
  10. hmmm.... That jumpsuit and the landscape looks extremely familiar........ https://myspace.com/skydivinkid/video/my-level-1-jump-thanks-dad/34725397 My 12 year old self jumping out of the super 182.... :) Carpe Diem, even if it kills me
  11. Don't forget Bill Booth's daughter. A parent isn't going to sue themselves over a mishap, so that reduces the potential pool of lawsuit defendants. Although I know the gear mfgrs still aren't happy about it. It wasn't a huge problem when I did my tandem at 6 and started aff at 12. Everybody knew we weren't going to sue if I got hurt. Its about maturity of the jumper and the underage jumper's parent's mindset. If the kids parents are jumpers, Probably not going to have any issues. ETA: The key as a dzo or even as far as a TI is to not risk anything with people you dont know. If you do this, You wont get sued. Make sure the jumper is mature enough to understand the saftey risks if they are going to be under their own canopy and make sure the TI on a tandem is either the parent or the parent is aware and accepts the risk. Ya know? Carpe Diem, even if it kills me
  12. I didnt see this before I posted mine.... But still. Holy Shit Carpe Diem, even if it kills me
  13. Wow... How will this go over in the Fast series? This really is a sad day. Rest in peace man. Carpe Diem, even if it kills me
