Note from our Chairman

Hi everyone!

Please have a look at manifest. We will be starting up earlier in the mornings from now on (wheels up at 07:00).

Normally, the best jumping weather is earlier in the morning and also, starting up earlier will enable us to get in more loads for the day!

Please make sure that you are at the DZ an hour before your first jump and ensure that you are on time when your load is being called during the course of the day.

We are still experiencing loads being delayed due to jumpers taking their time walking out. Guys, please, this normally robs the poor guys of daylight on the later loads of the day. Please be sharp and keep track of manifest, waiting for your call!

We will definitely have to take an approach of lower tolerance towards jumpers delaying loads. Make a point of it to be prepared well in time for your jump and ensure that you manage your equipment (packing etc) proactively. This will make it easier to be on time when your load is being called.

Thanks guys!

See you at the Club!!

 Chairman's Report 

Tim Mace, a true skydiving legend. RIP.
15 September 2014

Sad news

Hello everyone

It is always difficult to say goodbye to someone leaving us behind. This time, however, JSC did not only lose a true friend, but also a mentor who was a role model and a leader in so many different ways that he will always leave an empty space.

I do not know many men (if any) who are worthy of filling the shoes of Tim Mace. He was a true gentleman and a leading example to each and every one of us!

Tim always had time to assist those who are still young in the sport, taking them under his wing. He had a passion for teaching, sharing his incredible knowledge.

To those who were so fortunate to have experienced being taught by Tim Mace, embrace it! You have no idea how privileged you are.

Tim, Fly Free.

RIP
