  6. Sorry to hear Cal City is closing. I stated jumping there in 1984 when Van and Albert were frist starting out in a very small hanger with the 206 that they still have, or what was left after it hit the fence. Its always been a good plane. We had a lot of fun, accomplished many firsts, and drank tons of beer. It was even better when we got to move into the big hanger and later got the Otter. Got my tandem rating there from Bill Estie. That was the scariest thing I did. I had lots of fun doing tandems on F-111 canopies on no wind days. Yes, they do happen there. Well best of luck to Van and Albert.... they deserve it, they worked hard to build the business and we should be happy for them and wish them all the best! Blue Skies Dave Chrouch D-11816 P.S. I would like to extend a welcome to any Cal City jumpers who may be looking for a new place to skydive. Come to Taft and make it your new home. You will find the same warm welcome here as at Cal City. Remember, once a Cal City jumper, always a Cal City jumper.
