We spent most of that beautiful June Saturday, in class learning how to arrive safely on the ground and what to do "if.....". After all of the appropriate training, we jumped. Dawsons that jumped were:
Dad (on his 65th birthday)
Roger (Dad's younger brother)
Bill (my brother, his second jump)
Jim (my brother)
Dan (another brother)
John (yet another brother)
Lisa Marie (John's wife)
On the ground supporting us were: my mom Pearl, my wife Laura, Roger's wife Terri, Dan's wife Amy, and Dan's daughter Miranda.
