This is a Sport?

The 50th anniversary of my first jump is next month and I can’t tell you how much fun it was to watch the 1969 film “This is a Sport?” that you included in the recent USPA Update! My goodness—cheapos, PCs, B-12 containers, belly-wart reserves, Bell helmets, and French Paraboots! I busted a gut!

The basic appeal of the sport is still the same today (and I wouldn’t go back), but what fun it was to see how we started out. Thanks a bunch!

Those who wish to view “This is a Sport?” can find the 20-minute film on the SkydiveUSPA YouTube channel.
