2nd Annual tonto Boogie : 3 to 4 October 2009
By Taya Weiss USPA D27874

Nearly two years ago, the much-beloved Eric "tonto" Stephenson passed away during a high-speed swoop landing. Last year, on the first anniversary of his passing, the tonto Boogie was born.

The Johannesburg Skydiving Club was rocking with fun jumps, competitions, a great party, and prize give-aways all weekend. Now the Boogie officially becomes a tradition in its second year, and it's going to be great.

From October 3-4 at the Johannesburg Skydiving Club, we will continue to honour Eric's memory and his many contributions to skydiving with a great boogie.

Please save the date and come out to play, fly, learn, compete, and see old friends. All disciplines will be represented, and I'll be organizing some cutting-edge wingsuit flocks!
