Tip Tuesday: Landing Patterns
Heading to a new DZ? Here are a few tools from Flight-1's Justin Price to help you scope it out before you even get there...
The skydiving community is authentic, supportive, welcoming. It’s passion, focus, it’s camaraderie, but sometimes unfortunately things go wrong, that’s the nature of what we chose to do.
That is at the base of the decision to create a fund to help in those moments, the ones we all wish didn’t happen, but the ones we all know sometimes do.
Care- All Foundation, a legally constituted foundation abiding by all Spanish law, has as mission to help create possibilities for better lives. We support many causes, that we call “actions”, from an orphanage in Kenya to schooling for kids in Nepal, from supporting a young Zambian environmentalist with the ambition to change the world to a young Kenyan with the ambition to create his own retail empire.
One of these actions is the Sky Family Fund. This fund operates in two ways: as an emergency fund to help out in moments of crisis as well as offering more long term continued fund-raising support.
Care-All Foundation was launched in the beginning of February, during the Wind Games at Windoor, in Empuriabrava. In the short period of operation, we have been able to make a difference for the above mentioned people as well as offer support for a fellow skydiver, victim of a bad accident that left him quadriplegic.
To raise funds for the Sky Family Fund, we are organising a prize raffle, the draw will take place at the end of November. Prizes include hours of tunnel time, coaching by Peter Mazetta, Inka Tiitto, Satori Factory, Fede Rawa, Paulo Perrini, a day of free jumps and coaching by Dan BC, jump tickets, TonFly helmet, Sonic Suit, swoop pants, canopy courses by Pete Allum and Curt/Jeannie Bartholomew… and a weekend for 12 people in Jokke Sommer’s chalet! Plus loads more, see full list here.
Many important names in our industry have generously donated prizes:
Tickets can be purchased via our website starting now and until the date of the draw which will take place in the course of a flying event; stay tuned for details, but it will be great! All funds raised will go to the Sky Family Fund.
We have the privilege of being part of a community unlike any and to do a sport unlike any, together we can make a difference in moments of need. The more prizes we have and the more donations we receive, the more we can help.
We look forward to your involvement, help us help.
