Brings back a lot of memories reading about the pioneers guestbook, I, knew about all that have been mentioned, had forgot a few of the names but also a few not mentioned. I, had the XVIII Abn Corps Sport Parachute Club at the same time period when Gene Paul Thacker D-167 had the Green Beret Parachute Club, Nolan Bowlin C-3134 had the 82nd Parachute Club, Nolan left and Bobby "SPIDER" Wrenn D-459 took over the 82nd Sport Parachute Club. I got to jump with the best that was in the sport. I, was a member of the Vietnam Parachute Club NHAY DU, President of the club was Ray Duffy D-148, Sec=Tres was Nolan Boling C-3134. My membership #3. You know who had #1 #2, Ray then Nolan. Some other members were Richard "Dick" Harmon D-936, Phil Flynn D-190, Eugene Hausnfus D-1569, Fostervold D-1488, Buddy Bouden D-1586, David Rudlem C-3798, Bob Armis B-5990, there are a few more but I,have no record of them.  I, live real close to a great friend of mine. a lot of you might remember as Hawk-Eye,  Sherm Hawkins D-369. Buddy D-1586 if you read this call 918-759-9930. THANKS:

Nice to run on to this section and see the originators of the sport connecting. I started as an 18 year old student at Oklahoma State jumping condemned Army parachutes. Took some real hard landings. You know the ones. I remember looking in awe at Para Commanders and wondering what it must be like to have that much money!
I started jumping because as a youngster I saw the show Ripcord. Anyone recall that? Literally, the minute I was legal I was in the OSU club. Relative work consisted of baton passes if you were lucky.
One day I got to jump one of the "LO-PO's" that were used on the Ripcord show. No one else would jump it because it was a 'death rig'. I didn't care- it was from Ripcord!!! Sure enough,on opening, I looked up to see pretty large areas stained with blood. Still, it was like getting to ride Trigger with Roy! Wow.
I went on to make close to 1800 jumps and I have been out due to health, but made a tandem today on my 60th B-day. Sweet!
I was fortunate enough to be part of several world record big-ways, including the first 200 way. I consider free fall like oxygen! You know the feeling! If anyone out there is from the OSU or Stroud DZ days of 68-72, let me know. Art
