Angels Way Jump Fest : 31 October – 2 November 2009, Durban Skydive Centre

By Vernon Kloppers, C1506

A big thank you to everyone that participated in the Angels Way December Jump Fest Preview over the weekend of the 31st of October to the 2nd of November.

Over R50 000.00 was raised for the FreeMe Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre in Howick, through donations from the skydivers.

This fundraiser would not have been possible without help from the following people-
Liz and Kirsty - manifest
Carlos, Manny and Graham - pilots
Erik, Michael, Roy, Vernon, Rogan, Steve, Andrew, Kallie - tandem masters
Corné, Scott, Dave, Stuart, Liz - camera people
Duran, Ernie, Steve - refuelling
Dean, Liam, Blayde - editing
Ernest, Kezi, Maddi, Adam, Myros - packing

Special thanks to Rob for supplying the aircraft and to everyone else that gave a hand.

This event was also the launch of the Atlas Angel. The Angel was getting 9 jumpers up to 12 000' in 10 minutes. Big open door with steps and handles to make exits for tandems, AFF, wingsuit and 8-ways a pleasure.

Everyone is invited back for the Angels Way December Jump Fest from the 28th of December 2009 to the 2nd of January 2010.

Please check the PASA billboard on for more details. See you then!
