Calling all JOES jumpers. If you are a JOES member we need you in Deland Florida  October 7,8 2022 at the Hall of fame event to try for a JOES world record. The current  world record is only a 6 way and we stand a good chance of being successful.


We have quite a few JOES people jumping so it is just a matter if getting some or all of you in one spot. (There is no Florida record at this time) If you are reasonably current or if you know someone who is, we would like to have you consider participating. 


Contact  Cliff Davis: at davisoz@yahoo.com or 970-281-2390.
