  2. Field of dreams...! Dude... good to see you are STILL cranking out them show jumps. Hope ur good... I hardly ever log onto dz.com anymore, so it was super funny to see your pics.. and as for the lack of hair dude!! WTF!! cheers Kev
  3. Bev, awesome job you guys are doing back home! "Cartoonville" as we called it sure has changed over the years! Let me know when you are in Deland, love to catch up. The image of the pond sure is small.... can you upload a larger one?? cheers Kevin
  4. Awesome! Myself and Long Pete speant quite sometime in the desert. I had the privilege of throwing drogues, doing AFF, A3F and even wash the otter at Cal City in '93, '94 and early '95. I made some awesome friends and have some great memories. Beautiful Majove Desert, the early bird loads meant us almost freezing in freefall, doing tandems in the strong desert winds, phenominal winter sunsets, Edwards airforce base and secret aircraft flying around (raptor), many sonic booms, space shuttle landings, drinking green bottles, folding Majave Desert News with Van on Wednesdays... or was it thursdays??....and of course great people, Van, Jnr, Bob, Judy, Kim, Ian, Tom, Emiko, Lisa, Laura, Dano, Ron, Michele, Rose, Joe, and of course Kahlua. Damm, cool trip down memory lane! Well done Van on a milestone - 30 years!
  5. Ooops! got it all wrong I see! BOBO! Awesome bud.... just bloody marvelous! Well done Ian and well done Ryan on winning the intermediates. Hey I can see you are proud Sands! //Kevin

  7. Come Celebrate the Lives of Egon, Bruno, Krystal and Piers BRAAI (South African style BBQ) MEMORIAL BIG-WAY JUMP GREEN BOTTLE LIBERATION Date: Saturday, August 20th Where: Skydive DeLand Time: If you’re going to be on the memorial jump, come at noon. If you will not be on the jump, come anytime. Dinner will be around 7:00. (Ideally, the jump will take place in the late afternoon/early evening but if the day is looking overly tropical, the load will go before the clouds roll in.) The Jump: Bob Hallet has kindly made his 3 aircraft available for the memorial jump. Members of DeLand Majik have offered to organize the memorial jump. The size of the formation(s) will be determined by people’s skill level and desire. Bruno and Krys did a lot of freeflying so separate freefly jumps on the same load may be possible. If you would like to be on the memorial jump, let David know by emailing him at choms@delandmajik.com. Please provide your name, where you’re traveling from, your jump number, and if you prefer a large RW jump or a smaller freefly group. Unfortunately, slots for the memorial jump are limited. We hope to accommodate everyone but, realistically, this may not happen. We beg your understanding if you do not make the load. Everyone will gather round the pea pit after the jump (or closer to sunset) to share stories and feelings. The Party: While family and friends around the world are deeply saddened by this tragic loss, you know these guys would want us to party. Heineken (and other beer and wine) will be ready for liberation. Meat will be on the braai; other non-meat foods will be provided. A good game of flaming footie may also be in order. Memories: There will be an area set aside for photos and memorabilia of Krys, Egon, Piers, and Bruno. Please bring photos or personal items to share and go ahead and set them up yourself when you arrive. Input? If you have a question or there is some event, game, food, drink, or what-not you think should be at the memorial please email Kevin at kehschafer@hotmail.com PS. There is also an ash jump / memorial for Krystal taking place at Skydive Deland on Saturday the 6th August 2005. To live in the hearts of those who love you is not to die. Egon, Piers, Bruno and Krys – Forever in our hearts
