Birthday Party and First Jump Day at Skydive USA
Packer, loader, tandem catcher, and all-around good guy Justin Price would like to extend an invitation to all Houston and Texas area jumpers to attend his 16th birthday party and first jump day at Skydive USA, August 8, 2000.
This is a special invite to everyone that has been part of Justin's very "skydiver" upbringing at the numerous Houston area DZs he's been involved with and Texas DZs he's been a part of for the last 13 years. AFF rating holders are encouraged to attend, as Justin has decided to go for all 7 AFF levels in a day (packing each time, of course), and he wants to jump with as many folks as possible.
They'll be rockin' the King Air all day, so go and help Justin celebrate! For those who can't make it, please feel free to jam his inbox with salutations and general skydiver harassment at JpUMP2000@aol.com.
The dropzone is located 45 minutes southwest of downtown Houston on Highway 59 south in Wharton, Texas, at the Wharton Regional Airport. Camping and hot showers are available, and hotels and eateries are five minutes from the dropzone. For more information call 281-561-5867 or check out Skydive USA's web site at www.skydiveusa.com.
