than I expected, but my shoulder is finally solid again after three
surgeries and the corresponding drops in jumping.  On Sunday, I made a hop &
pop to finally get a 4th digit in my jump number total.  I thought about
quitting a few times in the last few years...I'm glad I didn't.

Long time no talk with you guys...have I missed anything interesting (as
opposed to uninteresting things like Snuffy clogging up the newsgroup)?

Blues,
Dave

That's great to hear, but you weren't gone that long were you?
It seems like just yesterday that I was getting a MWTB question.

No, he and a few others have pretty much driven everyone that
does not have a high tolerance for noise over to dropzone.com.

Just a few weeks ago I asked about the decline of the newsgroup
and it spurred a brief discussion of something actually skydiving
related, but it was just a small bump in the graph.

That shows how observant you are Gary.
The whole time Snuffy was gone this was a  real skydiving ng.. Since his return
 the old ng has returned.

Why don't you quit whinning, go to the DZ and give back to the sport through
the novices you phony ***, put something doable together for them...I mean it
ain't like you minded taking the Tandem money & free jumps from that Nevada
Tandem mill...did ya forgit how to teach cuz ya let yer ratings expire & the
money's stopped?
     SHOW SOME LEADERSHIP

***....I give more back to the novices in one weekend at the dz than you
gave in those couple years you spent there.
You seem to forget...you never got to be more than a novice
yourself...regardless of the lies you have come to believe.
I asked you this once before...."where are all those novices that you had under
your wing ...why arent they here defending you?"
Ive jumped with almost all of the regulars here.   Jerry saw you at a dz
once...and he only remembers you because of your loud mouth,,,,,thats about it.
Your imagined legacy is very sad at best.

Funny the USPA declared me a Master
and I was good enuff to win a POPS National Bronze with less than 220 jumps I
was older than you are now when I started
skydiving & at least 5 or 6 years older by the time, the medal was won...Quit
making excuses, get out there and give back!

#1 Yah? how many SCR/SCS's are you     facilitating or uspa award formations
you     putting together for them? or do you just     jump with the people that
can turn a     lotta points & make you look good?

#2. If you knew me, knowing the amount of      skydivers I***off  daily and
were still      active would you admit it? think about     that <g>

 #3 do you always expect to receive when       you give? If so your giving for
the                wrong reasons & in the wrong sport

#4 Jerry never claimed to have seen me till
     I slammed him over bragging about his      dad shaking hands with Gobels &
then       singing that natzi drinking song for the        jews....When the Ng
turned on him,          embarrased he suddenly remembered        seeing me pass
thru the beaumont dz        when he was a student and ignore him
     he's been stalking me ever since...You
     didn't work on a SCR/SCS for Rev. & I
     been stalking yer butt, making sure           you don't take credit when
credit is           due. I WANNA SEE MORE ACTION
     AND LESS TALK SKYGOD! When the       spring crop gits their A's I wanna
hear        them talking about you, how your              helping them...Shit
here's A's B's & C's
     from last year walking around without
     SCR/SCS's right now......I've been      waiting for a sign you can do
anything
     but offer empty words like " good,           great, sorry to hear that and
welcome      back!....................................NOW
      GET OUT THERE AND GET ON IT
                    BOY! ;-P

#2 Last time I heard you say something about a novice was a month or so ago and

It was your landing that ***ed you up. Are you sure that your license
doesn't say masterbater instead of master skydiver?

I bet your dirt dive went like this: Snuffy, try not to backslide this time.
Don't move and we'll turn points on you. Sound familiar?
