Dale was one cool cat who was game for any kind of jump with pretty much anyone. When I was pre-100 jumps, he and Clayton (as well as Mel and JJ) were great to learn to freefly with. For my 100th jump at Gold Coast in Moss Point, Dale, Clayton, Eduardo(his 300th), Shaun, and I did a sit train exit and had a great freefly jump. Dale and Clayton both had camera helmets. Dale was like a monkey in the sky! He was so comfortable there and always had a huge grin of enthusiasm. I have the video and will try to upload it if I can just to show the love for skydiving Dale had. Mel and JJ have some fun pics of Dale dressed up for the Freefly Festival costume party which are hilarious. If I recall, Dale might have been the one behind my "dirty" 100th pie full of condiments, eggs, and whatever was left in the frig. Dale had a way about him..just always made me laugh. I remember asking him to help me pack my brand new canopy and he told me to just shove it in the bag that it's designed to open.."relax, you'll be fine"..
Heartfelt condolences to Dale's family, friends, and Gold Coast Skydivers.
Damn Dale...Fly Free...Cya soon.
Love ya..miss ya...
