    Hello 👋 Skydiver friends
I will be giving a GEAR FAMILIARIZATION session for jumpers of all experience at @parachuteottawa this weekend. Most likely after the last load on Saturday the 27th of July.

The aim of this little course is to get you to know more about your gear, to be a better and safer skydiver! The rigger is the specialist, as well as the manufacturers of course, but when you jump you are the one wearing the rig. A deeper understanding can make you more confident and also more accurate in your actions.

I have many ideas of subjects I want to cover, but this is the first time I do this so I will take suggestions before we start. Here are my thoughts: 💡3 ring release, how it works and how to inspect it
💡 what makes a rig freefly friendly, or even what makes a rig airworthy nowadays
💡 types of lines and their characteristics
💡main packing tricks and troubleshooting
💡opening a reserve in front of you plus explaining what the RSL and MARDs do (like SkyHook)
💡💡💡 And more...!
.
.
NO Charge 🙂 I promote safety and knowledge
.
Who’s interested???

    I don't expect this to last long. Reasonable offers are being considered! Here's a copy/paste from my Kijiji ad. #FORSALEYYC #YYCMUSIC #YYCMUSICIANS

Gretsch Electromatic Corvette in Cherry Stain finish–asking $700 OBO.

This guitar is in great condition and sounds growly and fat. There's a small but deep-ish scratch out of the back corner of the body and one chip on the back of the neck. Aside from that, the last setup I did on it now has the action nice and low, frets are leveled, intonation is good, the Bigsby is super smooth and sounds great and it's been outfitted with a new set of Elixir strings. I'm the second owner after a friend of mine (@too.much.diego), who picked it up from Long & McQuade a few years ago. He added a new bridge with rolling saddles and I just replaced one of the knobs to bring it to sale-worthy condition. Love this guitar, and I'd love to see it go to a committed player. Gimme a shout!

    This preset name very accurately describes my feelings after today’s session. Hope you marked your calendar for tomorrow’s show?

    This is the best sounding pedal board I’ve ever had. Ever. Adding the Golden Fleece from @mythospedals and The Dane (@mrpeterhonore sig. pedal) from @thorpyfx was a massive improvement and has opened so many new doors. They’re so easy to work with and so inspiring to play. In conjunction with the Dude and Centura, that gives me 5 gain stages to work with (that’s like 50% of @chrisbuckguitar ‘s gain stages... 😎😂). My GAS is currently under control, but... what should be added next time? 🤔

    “Everything’s green through the tinted window of the train up to Racine.” Beautiful song on a beautiful guitar.  What a Friday.

    Welcome to the Baum family, @nicolai_busse from @moeldk 👏. Nicolai chose a Wingman in Dark Moon, which fits perfectly with their music. It’s progressive, dark and beautiful! The pickups are a Bluesstack (n) and a Goldbucker (b). We’ll tell you more about @moeldk and Nikolaj in the future! 🤘#iplaybaum #baumguitars #moeldk

    No. 3 - Baum Guitars were not built in the ‘60s, but we wish they were! Therefore, we’ve made a bunch of fun  Newspaper/Magazine ads based on how we think, advertising Baum in the ‘50s and ‘60s would have looked like. And now it’s time for the Carve! The most solid guitar on the stage 😎. We hope, you enjoy these collages! #baumguitars #vintageads
