Turkey Weekend!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the dropzone to show their support during the holiday weekend. We wanted to give special thanks to Wes Guinn, John “Bean” Freeman, Kista Hamilton, Belynda Adams and Stephen Scott for bringing out their friends and family to do their first tandem jumps. We flew back to back loads all day long thanks to the wonderful turnout of tandems, AFF students and experienced jumpers. It was also hybrid weekend. Three large hybrids were attempted, and four smaller three-ways went down. Congrats to all of our AFF students: Rodney, Ian and Justin on completing their Accelerated Freefall jumps this weekend. Also an overdo congratulations to Chris Martin on receiving his coaches rating. Thad Rice came out to the dropzone this weekend with his AFF instructional rating and thoroughly enjoyed his jumps this weekend. Don Martin is our newest staff member after receiving his Strong tandem rating, and he took four people on their first skydive this weekend! Stephen Scott came out to jump this weekend and make his first solo, on the same airplane load as his girlfriend Laura, making her first skydive. 9 loads were flown Saturday. 

Saturday night at the dropzone we had a feast! Cakes and cookies of all sorts lined the table, as well as many side dishes and the main course: fried turkey. Thanks to Ken Reeves for bringing out the turkey, we all enjoyed it! Cookie cake was brought out to celebrate Jeff Fincher’s 30th and Amy Gravlee’s 21st birthday. Kista Hamilton brought out her favorite video game which included a guitar, and everyone played this game all night long, while others sat out by the bonfire. 

Sunday was also a great day! 8 loads were flown, and with sunset at 4:30 PM, this is a great day for us! Another three large hybrids were attempted, and two smaller three way’s. Congratulations to Wes Guinn and Ken Reeves on receiving their A licenses! Amy Gravlee successfully completed her two hop n pops, and is just one coach jump away from her A license. Congrats to Aaron Hamilton on getting recertified! Also to Scott Lee on successfully completing IAF level 1. A sunset hop n pop load was flown and everyone enjoyed the beautiful sunset.
