    Judge Course

    Go to national and state meets and volunter to help out and be a training Judge. Get hold of the organizers of the meets to get in touch with Cheif judge. FAI has some links on their webpage including sample vedios to pratice on. Judging is hard work But can be very rewarding. You meet a lot of people and go a lot of places. I have judged meets in Canada, Aussie, NZ, Malasia, since 1976 (off asnd on) And have had a great timed doing it. Nowadays I only do NZ POPs meets but still great fun and people.

    "SKYDIVING" by Bud Sellick - 1964

    I still have my copy of Parachutes and Parachuting by Bud Sellick. Written 10 yrs after Skydiving. I bought it very soon after my first jump in 73. Some great photos and stories in it.

  11. I owned a couple of Niagara rigs back in the 70s Probably more then half the DZ had gear from them as we were all pretty good mates with the Grims. Eddie and Ann were very frequent visitors to Coldwater and Perry was a permanent resident. Anyway, I don't recall seeing any with chest straps like that. But then again there's a lot of the 70s I don't remember

    "I'm going in" skydiving song?

    Written by a good friend of mine, Ron Marshall in Toronto. I have the lyryics and will post them here for you if you like. An even better song he pened was Skydiving Sally all about a love struck student and his female jumpmaster. All sorts of referances to capell bruises, silly suits and Addias boots. All the oldtimers (like Me) could relate to. Best line is Makes me wanna blow my AOD!!
