Thanks to the amazing club members, the committee members who spend so much of their personal time on projects and all the staff who make our club the rockstar place it is.

This is a really big deal. We are recognised by the West Rand Tourism and now the Gauteng Tourism award for Best Action and Adventure for 2016.

 Ssssssmokin'!!!

Another amazing Smoking Dragon event!

Smoking Dragon Boogie, Amphitheatre Backpackers Lodge, Bergville, KZN - 16 June 2016

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!!!!

 Three reach 1000th skydive on the same load!!! 

Posted 21 January 2016

Peter Hansen, Ryan Weeks and Bruce Tait completed their 1000th jump on the 17th January 2016, on the same load, at Johannesburg Skydiving Club.

Amazing!

Has anyone even heard a crazy awesome statistic like this???

THREE JSC members doing their 1000th jump on the exact same load... We certainly haven't!

Bruce Tait, Peter Hansen and Ryan Weeks completed their 1000th jump on the 17th January 2016, on the same load, at Johannesburg Skydiving Club.

That Just Happened. What an AMAZING Achievement!!! We are not too sure about this, we certainly haven't EVER heard of anything of this nature happening at any club, anywhere, around the WORLD.... Three club members reach this amazing achievement on the same jump...

We are blessed to have them and we're tremendously proud.

WELL DONE BOYS!!!

 Chairman's Report 

Posted 1 July 2015

JSC remains the leader, setting an example for others to follow!

Hi everyone,

I find myself humbled and to say the honest truth, somewhat overwhelmed.

JSC received an invitation to attend the West Rand Tourism Award Evening held at Silver Star casino on Monday 20 July.

Needless to say, this is a most prestigious event and only receiving an invitation to attend it, already is quite an achievement.

Our expectations were exceeded by far and we are proud to report back to our membership with the following awards presented to JSC:

JSC has won 4 awards in the 8th West Rand Tourism Awards - Gold in the category Adventure Experience; Overall Winner in the Tourism Experience (floating trophy); Platinum in the Best Tourism Experience; and our esteemed Chairman Pottie was the overall winner in the Tourism Ambassador of the Year - well done JSC!!!

1. Adventure Experience: GOLD AWARD

2. Best Tourism Experience: PLATINUM AWARD

3. Tourism Experience: OVERALL WINNER
(floating trophy)

4. Special Award: Tourism Ambassador of the Year:
OVERALL WINNER – EUGENE (POTTIE) POTGIETER

This huge privilege and honour would never have turned into a reality, had it not been for the passion and active participation of the team I am so blessed to be a part of.

The Johannesburg Skydiving Club Committee, Tandem Masters, Editors, Hosts, Cameramen and all other members selflessly contributing to making JSC the spectacular Club it is, deserve more mention than I do. (There are so many of you and I cannot mention any names in fear of excluding someone.)

Guys thank you for your continued efforts!

JSC will now automatically be included for nominations for awards on a higher level and I cannot wait to see what the future holds!!!!

 
 JSC Wins 4 Tourism Awards! 

Posted 30 June 2015

JSC has won 4 awards in the 8th West Rand Tourism Awards - Gold in the category Adventure Experience; Overall Winner in the Tourism Experience (floating trophy); Platinum in the Best Tourism Experience; and our esteemed Chairman Pottie was the overall winner in the Tourism Ambassador of the Year - well done JSC!!!

I am exceptionally pleased and proud to announce that Johannesburg Skydiving Club just won 4 awards in the 8th West Rand Tourism Awards.

The awards were hosted at Silverstar Casino and many dignitaries from municipal, local and national government attended the event.

JSC won the following awards:

— ADVENTURE EXPERIENCE: GOLD AWARD
— BEST TOURISM EXPERIENCE: PLATINUM AWARD
— TOURISM EXPERIENCE: OVERALL WINNER
And our esteemed Chairman Eugene “Pottie” Potgieter won
TOURISM AMBASSADOR OF THE YEAR

Based on the other winners and the fact that JSC won the Overall Floating Trophy for OVERALL Tourism Experience shows that all the hard work was worth it and we can only strive to make JSC the best tourist destination not only in the West Rand, but in South Africa as a whole.

I have to extend a heartfelt thank you and congratulations to the whole Committee who work tirelessly every day to ensure the operation continues to excel, the tandem masters who make the tourist experience so memorable, the camera crew who capture it all, the editors who entrench the memories forever, the packers for ensuring they all keep flying safely and to all the members who contribute to the instructor body including JM’s and Instructors. And the support staff that play such an integral role in the background, manifest, canteen and bar operators and staff keep us all going each weekend, without who, we would be lost (and starving), thank you.

This is an amazing ship we have and I am so proud to have been part of this phenomenal achievement for 2015.

Well done,
Beverly
