Atlanta Skydiving Center Jumpers on "Good Day Atlanta" TV Show
“Road Warrior” from the “Good Day Atlanta”
morning television show broadcast live from Atlanta
Skydiving Center on Tuesday morning as part
of a promotion for Richard Branson’s “Rebel
Billionaire” reality TV show. It was a beautiful
morning of skydiving at ASC broadcast live throughout Georgia,
which in turn promoted skydiving
to local whuffos. Woohoo!
The broadcast event included Kenny Pugh swooping a hot
air balloon at 5000 feet occupied by Chuck Owen, Anne Kohaut
and Mike Gruwell. Anne and Mike jumped from the balloon
shortly after Kenny’s swoop while Dan McAllister jumped
from a Cessna 205. The broadcast ended with a grand finale
swoop by Tyler Lawson as he swooped toward the host in the
main Atlanta Skydiving Center
Chuck owes beer for his first landing in a hot air balloon,
which occurred much later in a Cedartown field. Mike and
Anne owe beer for their first
jumps from a hot air balloon. The two of them
landed in fields southwest of the landing area.
We are still working on rescheduling the day of balloon
jumping for experienced
jumpers. Any updates or rescheduling of the
balloon jumps will be posted on the ASC
Skydiver Forums. Look out for a short movie
from the Good Day
Atlanta jumps, Tyler put together that will
be posted to this site soon.

Lee Wood still celebrated the Marines 229th Birthday.
Marines from as far away as Philadelphia

for better weather next year so an “all-Marine”
jump session can take place.
