Skydive Jersey Shore.


    Opening day; it went well considering the winds were high and the clouds were low and not a jump was made, but we did get to see some friends. We also met with some of the jumpers and discussed some new procedures to make things even more airport friendly. Thank you everyone for coming and for those who couldn’t make it we hope to see you soon.
Sunday was a different story, it was a nice day and we jumped, everyone had fun. We’re back for the season; let’s make it a good one.

   Hello everyone, we are happy to announce that instructor Kevin Purdy
has completed the Accelerated Freefall (AFF) course and is now an AFF instructor.
Just like all good skydivers the education never stops.
Congratulations Kevin (we knew he would ace the course).

   Graduate # 2 Guilherme H. Jamarino (WILLIE) started the course in early April. His AFF # 7 was completed on 2004 May 26. He is now cleared for solo freefall and working toward his A license. Congratulations Will.
   Skydiving for the cause. Thirty people made their first jumps at Skydive Jersey Shore
to raise money for the Crohn’s and Colitis foundation of America (CCFA).
The jumpers raised over $35,000 for the CCFA. One jumper alone raised over $11,000.
Skydive Jersey Shore would like to send a special thanks to the CCFA for allowing us to host this event and to the experienced skydivers who helped make the event go smooth.

   We have the first graduate in 2004. Joel Knapp was cleared for solo skydives today
by instructor Joe d’Afflisio. Joel started his training in March of 2004 and has spent many days watching and waiting for the spring weather to clear. Congratulations Joel.
Now tell your brother brad to get out here.

   A Jumping Blue Bean from the CCFA came to Skydive Jersey Shore Inc.
A little early this weekend.
Jessica M. Olowina (a Jumping Blue Bean who could not make the rain date of May 8th)
made her first skydive. She jumped on Saturday April 17 th in the morning. Jessica, a little speechless after her skydive, did manage to say she enjoyed the experience.
Thank you for jumping with us Jessica.

  Due to advese weather conditions The Crohns & Colitis Foundation of America,
Jumping Blue Beans™” Skydiving event at Skydive Jersey Shore

  It's a leap year. Sunday February 29th was a beautiful day;
it is also the earliest we have been able to jump because of weather.
Three students started their training to become skydivers,
when they attended the Canopy Flight Training class taught by Willie C.
Brothers Brad and Joel Knapp, and Rusty Maitland each made excellent skydives.
Thanks for coming guys.
We also had some experienced jumpers come out and make the day even better,
