    Fear sitting next to the door

    I had that fear right uptil 300 jumps. My logic always dictated that even though I was wearing a rig, exiting the plane and falling out of it were two very different things. I gained my confidence on my time. No one hurried me to the door or ever played silly buggers if I was sitting at the door. I am a Jump Master now and have no problem leaning out of the door while I assist in dispatching a student. I will never forget when I was still a progression student we had to open the Porter door at an altitude below mine for another student to exit, tonto was sitting in the dog box (area at the back of the porter where there was no seat.) he slid up and pulled me towards him so that the open door was behind me. I will never forget that moment. Anyway take your time and slowly get used to being near the door. Good luck & Blue skies Sheri "Most of us can read the writing on the wall; we just assume it's addressed to someone else!" Ivern Ball

Many many thanks goes out to: (and in no particular order) Pottie Potgieter, Chris Beasley, Pears Adamson, Charis Baleson, Callie Haden - Smith, Beverley Cosslett, Nic Helfrich, Arno Schutte, Kevin Owen, Stuart Robinson, Chanel Gibbens, The JSC Committee, The generous anonymous financial donors, Vana Gulliver, the guys from the club that gave hard earned cash to support the swoop pond by buying raffle tickets, the guys behind the scenes working hard to assist in the process: have I left anyone out ... there are so many guys and girls who helped make this dream a reality ..... The swoop pond has still to be paid off, but with the help of our community I am sure it will be a great success ... we hope to welcome swoopers from all over the world to come join in and experience some true South African Hospitality!!!!!!
