  1. Thefirst time I ever met him, I showed up at the DZ right as the first load was landing....I was walking out in the landing area to take a look around an unfamiliar place and he swooped right next to me and I mean RIGHT NEXT TO ME with a big ass grin on his face and said good morning as he sailed by me at mock 5....................fly free...... till later have fun & love each other seeya mb65johnny gates....

  2. Chris was the first person I ever jumped with, wasn't even off of student status yet....we walked to mock up together talking, he asked if I could fall fast on my belly...I said yes. He said "ok, cool, I will follow you out the plan". It also was my "pack n jump it" jump so I was nervous...chris was going from sit to head in front of me and took my mind TOTALLY off my nerves!!!! SO COOL!!!!! Kelly, in part if it hadn't been for you Chris might have been gone long before this. You are an angel and are loved!!!!!! Heart felt embraces to you and Chris's family....... till later have fun & love each other seeya mb65johnny gates.... In skydiving, the only thing that stops you is the ground..............

  3. Ok I would ask who is going to this boogie, but it might be quicker to ask who IS NOT going to this boogie and even if ya don't know me, don't like me or don't whatever, please let us know if you are attending this event, numbers, numbers..... and of course very excited to be this time of year again till later have fun & love each other seeya mb65johnny gates....

  4. Just to let everyone know, We are offering for the month of May 50% off the retail BASE RATE ONLY. This DOES NOT include options to all military (active or retired) police officers, fire fighters and EMT's as our way of saying THANKS for helping to keep us safe!!!!! I wish we could afford to offer 50% off the options too, but a girl has gotta eat too! Contact your nearest dealer or if in the USA, you may contact Sunrise directly, although we prefer if you go through your local/nearest dealer. There will be no difference in price whether you go through us or a dealer and this discount can apply to our already running special on stock rigs. Of course the monthly special applies as well and that include FREE cut in laterals, a savings of $150 Since this was posted in here I wanted to make sure that people have the correct information. Thanks! till later have fun & love each other seeya mb65johnny gates.... In skydiving, the only thing that stops you is the ground.............. PMS# 472 Muff #3863 TPM#95

  6. That would be correct. ALL canopies vary in size, even sometimes the exact same type and size of canopy from the same manufacturer. I have a pilot 168 and my container fits a sabre 190. My pilot fits in there nicely. It can make it difficult to size containers and a 150 sabre may fit in one container perfectly and another 150 sabre may be tight in the exact same container. Unfortunately this chart isn't a set rule and it doesn't always work but that is the general rule of thumb. Pack volumes can and do vary. Peoples preferences can and do vary. Some like tight pack jobs and containers, some prefer a looser pack jobs and care less about the "look" of the container. Unfortunately we don't know that unless it is specified on the order form but when specified we do our best to accommodate the request, otherwise we do what seems to work in most cases. We welcome any feedback, especially from riggers, about canopy sizing as that is the best way to get good info, especially with all the newer canopies and European manufacturers out there that we have little or no experience packing.

  9. You would have to contact them, but considering that the dropzone, strong enterprises and packers are donating most of their time/gear ect, I would certainly have to say I would think all of it but I don't know for sure. email to contact them is tandemworldrecord@yahoo.com till later have fun & love each other seeya mb65johnny gates....

  10. Wasn't sure if this is the best place to have this but I figure the mods will move if not. This will be taking place at Zhills the 27th/28th of January. Please check out the link for info and for donating. This is also to help the families of our fallen Military Brethren. Hats off to SOCOM and Kristine and Chip for attempting this new record!!!

  12. My point exactly. The GEAR RENTAL IS FREE! People shouldn't be looking a gift horse in the mouth but say THANKS!!!! That is very cool that you guys are doing that
  13. The usual cost is approximately $21 give or take a buck or two at most DZ's. Not trying to be an ass here, but with the current economic climate, I think that anything that a DZ or manufacturer is willing to do that is "free" or cheaper should be applauded as times are tough for alot of people and skydiving isn't exactly a neccessity. Let's face it, if things continue on a downward trend, god forbid tandems slow down as people can't afford them anymore, we will either not be skydiving at all or DZ's that don't close down will become cessna DZ's.
