Christmas Party  14th December 2013

The 2013 Start Skydiving Christmas Party will be held on Saturday December 14th and will start at 6:30 PM at the Middletown Regional Airport in our main hangar! As always, this is a potluck dinner. Please RSVP and post comments on what dishes you plan to bring on the Event Page.

We have decided to push back the Christmas party to Dec. 14th due to logistical issues in any owners being able to attend being able to attend. We had a last minute demo offer come up that we couldn’t refuse. Jumping over the sunken USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor and landing on the helicopter deck of the USS Missouri on Pearl Harbor Day is a once in a lifetime opportunity and we are proud to have been chosen to mark the day’s remembrance. Originally, John Hart II had intended on going with his wife, Suzanne, as the ground crew and his son, John III, back here for the party. But due to recent medical reasons, she is not permitted to fly. With Gene down in Florida, this leaves no owners left to host the party. We all cherish being able to host the Christmas party every year, so we wanted to push it back in order to be able to do so. We realize this is short notice and appreciate your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience this causes for anyone. We hope that you are all still able to attend. We look forward to seeing you all next Saturday!
