You have no enemies, you say?
|I've been away from the jumping scene for some time now and there've been so many changes and closed dropzones that I can no longer honestly comment.|
Some things though never change, and the same half dozen or so absolute arseholes continue to pollute Pakenham, because they aren't welcome elsewhere, so if you have any sensitivity, it's probably still best avoided.
Check the Australian Parachute Federation web site for the current details of clubs, but remember...
|FREEFALL UNITED SKYDIVERS is where the most friendly, no hassle, no politics, no bullshit, no skygod, no rel queen,fun jumping happens. Freefall United's strength lies in the belief that as egomania is adequately catered for elsewhere, it is strongly discouraged in this club.|
Being a true non commercial club in the ever increasing commercial skydive world, and, with no affiliation with any single dz allows the freedom to jump at exotic locations throughout the state, often from exotic aircraft. We have access to a c186 (VH-DPI) which belongs to our club President.
There's even a regular, off dz social life which is bloody legendary and actually includes - SHOCK, HORROR - non jumpers. The derogatory word 'whuffo' is never heard at FU.
VH-DPI at Apollo Bay.
