  1. Good points. Agreed. 'In an insane society a sane person seems insane.' Mr. Spock
  2. I remember Skippy from old Spaceland. Always willing to take a bunch of younger jumpers up. And he did always have a story for the beer light, and now I can see how. I jumped with him last in Anahuac on someone's SCR. He was 3rd or 4th in. I barely managed to dock before breakoff. RIP Skippy !! Larry 'In an insane society a sane person seems insane.' Mr. Spock

    Ron Mills

    Ron was on the aircraft when I did my AFF level 1. I've noticed that in my many viewings of the video. I've jumped with him many times since then and have always been impressed with his knowledge of skydiving and willingnes to teach others. In 2001 he was telling me he would be at Nationals (Eloy) and would probably put together a pickup team for 16way after he got there. I wondered how he would gather 16 people in that short amount of time (4 was bad enough) but he said 'No problem'. Fast forward to Eloy and the team entering the hanger to view jump video and I saw Ron's gear, (whose colors never changed), hanging on a gear hook close to the door and remarked "Hey, Ron Mills is here." As we sat there waiting for our video to queue, I kept hearing that same comment from others as the entered the hanger, "Hey, Ron Mills is here.", and subsequent comments regarding looking him up for 16 way and I realized that he didn't have to go looking, people came looking for him. Too Cool. My condolences to Ron's family in this time of sorrow and also to all skydivers as we have lost one of our own. I almost know what those skydivers that have passed before are saying now: "Hey, Ron Mills is here." Blue Skies Ron. Luminous. "Blue Skies, Black Death"
  5. They lost the injuction to shut down business as usual at the DZ until the case is settled. They were denied that. The lawsuit is still active. As I understand a few concessions were made on both sides. We'll see. 'In an insane society a sane person seems insane.' Mr. Spock
  6. Thank you for the summary. I realize now my lack of detail on the original post would make this poll hard to answer but I couldn't have explained it as well. And it's about to affect the price of my jump ticket. I also used to consider him a friend, and it was kind of sad to see him on the other side of the court room with his little group. You never know. Cheers Larry 'In an insane society a sane person seems insane.' Mr. Spock

    Ballunar Liftoff 2007

    OK, So I guess the big way CAMP at Spaceland is Thur.& Fri. They are doing bigway sequential formations that Sat. & Sun. Fortunately, Steve needs to keep his Caravan that weekend, which is the Caravan we were going to use for Ballunar. Why Fortunately?? Al had to go searching for another aircraft. He found a CASA.

    Ballunar Liftoff 2007

    Due to the 4 inches of water currently on the field, and the forcast of more rain this weekend as a result of Hurricane Dean, the Ballunar Liftoff festival will not be held this weekend. But that's just a postponement !!

    Ballunar is near!!
