Safety Day 2013

As most of you know, we at WestPlains Skydiving usually have our Skydiving Safety Day a little later than the Official USPA Safety Day. This year, we will be doing our review of procedures, safety record and other Safety Day activities on Saturday, March 30th. The Location is still to be determined, but if you subscribe to our blog, our newsletter, or our Facebook page, we’ll keep you up to date as soon as we have a venue. This year, we would love for all of our experienced skydivers to encourage the newly licensed or returning skydiving students to participate in Safety Day and to be vigilant in learning good safety habits. As an incentive for everyone to be safe this season, we will be giving away a prize to the Safest Skydiver at the Ritz. We’ve already got a nomination for last year’s SSR and will be announcing the winner at safety day on March 30th. Here’s to having fun in the sport we love and keeping all of our friends and family from...
