JKO skydive Meet/Greet!

All,

I'm throwing together a Meet/Greet style skydiving trip early this summer for our Great Lakes JKO members (anyone is welcome though, from anywhere). If you want to do it or know someone who is interested, or maybe even just want to watch us all get freaked out by jumping out of a plane at 14k feet, Mention it and I will add your name!

Where: Skydive Tecumseh (http://www.skydivetecumseh.com/home)
When: June 16
Why: Why not?!?
Afterparty: Wrong Way's Pub potentially?
Cost: Depends on our group size, but count on 235 bucks a piece (I can get $10 off coupons...woot woot!) Can be up to 30 bucks less if we get 20 people, 20 bucks less if we get 10

Interested:
  • Ryan (Impostr)
  • Andrew (Impostr's cousin)
  • Alex (Impostr's cousin)
  • Emma (Impostr's squeeze)
  • Manny
  • Jeeps & Guns Daughter
  • 4-6 of Emma's friends
  • LightningSTI (Stephen) and wife (potentially)

Innocent Bystanders:
  • Eddie (EMG006)
  • Jeeps & Guns (I always forget your name...I will get it one of these times)

Ryan (Impostr)

I will watch you all. Already crossed this off the to do list a few times. Next time I do it, it's to get certified!

It is an absolute blast!

Ryan you're nuts LOL. Love the idea but I'd die of a heart attack just before jumping. I'll sit this out out and just stick with all 4 wheels on the ground!

Wife and I might be in, if she can do it buy then. I jumped out of a couple good planes now and she says she want to try, so sounds like it just may be the time.

Details!

Everyone that is going you need to go to rsvp.skydivetecumseh.com and enter the group number which is 98915. It will be a $50 deposit to register. You have to register separately as well, but we will all be together as a group. The prices are for 10 or more people in our group : $225 per person. For 20 or more people: $215 each. I have already registered for 1:00pm jump time. There is a certain number per jump time, so I would register asap. If anyone has any questions please message me or write a comment on this page. Hope everyone can come!

I've never understood this desire people have to jump out of airplanes but want to wish you all good luck.(I hear it's important to bend your knees prior to impact.)
