    ANTIOCH DZ - MALFUNCTIONS

    Yeah, so much for "free stowing" your lines after that. The Altitude Shop had a highspeed video/movie of free stowed lines coming out of the container that was one of the scariest things I'd ever seen. madjohn

    Bob "RW" Richardson

    Blue skies forever, Bob. madjohn
  12. As expected, a very insightful article. And very timely as 2 weeks ago we had a tracing dive turn up jump run, resulting in the following RW jumpers falling between canopies. Fortunately there were no collisions, only due to the fact, as Bryan has stated in the past "it's a pretty big sky" but we can't keep pushing its limits. Hopefully DZ's will address this with their "leaders" as well as staff to try and keep future problems to a minimum. Equally hopeful as that the "leaders" will address this with their fellow jumpers on their own.

    Santiago "Sandy" Rosell

    Damn, met Sandy at this year's SOS record. Great guy, he was docking across from me. Inspirational story on how he got started when Deland said he was too old. Looked forward to jumping with him in the future. Blue skies Sandy. madjohn

    BSBD Jake. Met him at Lost Prairie several years ago and jumped with him. He accidently dumped Chris Q out of a 4way reaching for his leg grip. madjohn
