Another amazing Smoking Dragon event!
Amazing people, amazing skydives, catching up with some dear old friends. What a ball!
Thank you to all who helped to make this possible! The ever so incredible JSC committee, Skydive Durban and all the jumpers joining us from places as far as Cape Town and Botswana!
Essop, Thabang, Garai, Cyril and George went through great effort to get there and they even sponsored Happy Hour for all the skydivers! You guys ROCK! The event delivered a minimum of incidents and a special thanks to Andrew Du Toit from Durban in assisting us with safety. What a chilled CI (but watch out, he is a big oke) :)
Huge thanks to our two Boogie pilots, Justin and Jaco for giving us total peace of mind! You guys are legends!
We had Neels and his hot air balloon team over, coming down all the way from Gauteng. Believe it or not, it took forever, but yours truly (die uwe Pottie Potgieter) can now also tick off the hot air balloon jump. (Yes, I did buy beer and a lot of it.)
When clubs get together and there is some intelligence vitamins flowing, there will always be some sharp initiatives arising, especially from a drinking thinking tank of this capacity.
So, here is the masterplan:
After serious consideration and intense negotiations between the masterminds from Jo’burg and Durban, it was decided to relive a long overdue tradition...
THE MARGATE BOOGIE IS BACK!!!!
Next year July, we are going to bowl this curveball into this quiet, unsuspecting coastal town and show them what fun is all about!!!
As expected, Durban and JSC will co-host this great event and we will be taking down two turbines to make it all happen! We plan to slot this in with the school holidays so EVERYONE can have some fun!
Don’t forget about the Botswana Epic Boogie guys. It is starting from the 14th of July and believe me when I say that you want to be there!!!!
