    USPA Board Meeting

    YOU are the bitchy little person barronn. Bill has been on Dropzone.com since the beginning. He had been a moderator so he might have quite a few posts. I have read all your posts regarding this BSR. WHAT is the big deal? Did you pitch a fit when seatbelts became mandatory in cars and aircraft? Why did it take them so long to require it?. Why didn't they do it in the beginning? Could it because because they didn't know how bad it was in the beginning before they collected data? Don't try to say you not against it because you obviously are because you won't let it go. Lobby the board to have it removed if you feel so strongly against it and according to you have you all this "support" backing you up. Give them a better way. Don't just respond with "well you should know". Enlighten us. Tell us what we should know.

    USPA Board Meeting

    If you are not against it, why do you keep fighting about it? Why the BSR? IMO - maybe because instructors/staff can have such egos that that unless you make it a requirement, they don't believe it applies to them and so many are certainly not going to admit to a mistake. Mistakes are made, AAD's fire, and hopefully no one will die because the mistake is made. We learn from them and move on. Why not require everyone report? IMO - Need to start somewhere. Maybe we need to be more concerned about the students, whose training them, and whose jumping with them. I'm sure the USPA would be happy to receive other reports on AAD's firing if anyone wanted to let them know. WFFC - there were not as many AAD's worn back in the day so you wouldn't see that many fire. How many low pulls were there back then? I am not a big fan of the USPA and how they secretly do things but you are pitching a fit over nothing.

    Thank you Chuck and Dqpacker. Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
  8. Also means the USPA can be sued for not supervising THEIR Group Members. If you are going to "sanction" something, you better know exactly what's going on there. J That would be an absurd legal standard. Yes, but this is the United States of America, home of the MOST ABSURD legal cases ever brought to court and won! Anyone can be named in a lawsuit. If you want to endorse/sanction a business, then you need to take responsibility for said business. And with all the supposed confidential reprimands, a jury may want to wonder what the USPA is hiding. I know I do. j Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    BOD Meeting July 2018

    Well Chuck, we had to go the a board meeting, many years ago, to GET a rating course at out DZ because several Board members said it would never happen because we were not a GM DZ. Don Yarling said there was no reason, what so ever, we should have had to show up for a meeting to fight for it, it should have just happened if we had the people to attend. Cost us plane tickets, hotel, and time off work. Watched Danny Page play solitare on his computer during most meetings and at the end, the Chairman at the time, sat there and read the Sunday paper during the voting. What happened at the next meeting? The BOD decided they would charge an fee (extortion) to non-GM DZ's to hold a rating's course. A fee that would be passed on to those attending the course and making it so expensive, it wouldn't be worth it. A course that benefits individual due paying members. The "right thing" should have been to never charge that fee to non-GM DZ's. Judy Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    BOD Meeting July 2018

    Skydiver landed on car, went through the windshield, hit so hard he bent the dash, broke his leg. It was better than him impaling himself on the fence. Skydivers landing on cars happens more often then you know. Another example would be damage to crops/farming equipment. A lot of dropzones are located by farmland. But don't get me wrong...not a big fan of the USPA (especially the GM program). Thinks it total BS that non GM dz's have to pay an extortion fee to have a rating course held at a non GM DZ even though it is supposed to be for the benefit of the individual member and not GM dropzones.

  14. Lodi is not a USPA Group Member Dropzone. I don't know how many non-GM dz's there are in total out there. It may be as simple as not wanting to spend the money on the GM as they don't see the benefit. Many still require their jumpers to be USPA members.
