We appreciate all the submissions and are happy to announce Amy won this gear giveaway. Here's her submission: https://www.clarkeairsports.com/post/the-moment-my-life-would-change-forever
Thanks for checking out my Bonfire Chats blog. I wanted a section to post updates, share stories, safety talks, and other content. I'd also like to share the stories of other skydivers. This gear giveaway is a way to share my student's skydiving stores and give back to them.
Share your skydiving story for a chance to win an ARES II digital altimeter($399) from LB. I am out at the Parachute Industry Association Symposium and was fortunate enough to win this lovely Ares II in a drawing. I am already all set with DigiAlti's from Freefall Data Systems so I would love to pass this altimeter along to one of the newer jumpers I've worked with.
Please email a story about your journey or experience skydiving and a skydiving photo. This is intentionally open ended. It can just be about an entertaining jump. It can be about weather day shenanigans. It can be about overcoming fear etc. Just tell a story about skydiving and I can share it on the "Student Perspective" section of the blog. We'll pick one at the end of the month and they will win a brand new Ares II from LB! Entries from my previous Gear Giveaway where I gave away a SonoAlti Audible from Freefall Data Systems will be included in the drawing except for the previous winner, Bob! Previous entrants can include another submission for an extra chance to win as well!
Must be a current or former student of mine (within the past year) to win but stories from anyone and everyone will be posted to the website!
Email submissions to: ClarkeAirSports@gmail.com
If anyone else has extra equipment that they would like to see go to a newer jumper, please let us know and we'll plan another giveaway to get gear into our newer jumpers hands.
