  The parachute training provided by Maytown Sport Parachute Club was enlightening and a blast.  I have no desire to abandon my acro mount, but if that comes up as an option on the decision tree, I won't add questions about parachute techniques and problems to the mix.  I think everyone had a great time on Saturday and Chapter 58 will plan another training weekend/party next spring.  We may be able to combine it with an Aerobatic Skills Development Day.

I encourage anyone to look up your nearest jump zone and consider taking their first jump course even if you don't actually jump from a perfectly good airplane (or at least a jump club airplane).

I do want to correct an error in Mirkin's post.  I was STANDING in the bean field when my daughter landed on the target.
