    In Florida in '79 - '82 we used to have crater parties... Anyone even know what one is now?



    The first one I heard of was Z-hills 1972. I was ASO at the time but was in Deland watching the Collegiate Nationals. Tony Fredine(sp?) from CA was the so honored guest. He won the the low pull, aka chicken jump, contest the night before around 0200.

    I jumped with Jack during those Indiantown days, and sure had a blast with him, and the rest of the crowd there, before moving away to Texas. He's a great guy, and a lot of laughs to hang out with. I am sorry to hear of his passing.


    I saw the name Gerry and thought he must be a relative of some sort. I didn't realize that it was Jack. I did my first 8-way with Jack and the other members of the "A team". They said just fall and we'll do the rest. The only problem was getting them to let go at 3500. They were always going for a few more points.



    My second post here. I received an Email from Ski Chmielewski advising me that Gerry was Jack's brother.

  • This is a shock. I knew him as Jack LaLonde and jumped in many a POPS meet with him. One fine fellow. Always laughing even after the scuba diving accident. He was supposed to be paralyzed from the waist down but he would not accept the diagnosis. Quite a man in my book.:(

    A C-9 orange and white 28ft flat circular with a 7 panel double L cut. Paid $25 for it and $10 for a T-10 reserve. Jumpsuit was $10 red coveralls from Sears. The year, 1963. Holy Cow! That was 40 years ago.:o
