SBSA Reserve Clinic Party

When: 3:00 Saturday Oct 22
Where: 2774 Puesta Del Sol, S.B.

The Clinic will provide an opportunity to practice deploying your chute in the simulator of your choice and then have experienced re-packers inspect your deployment system and repack the reserve with new bands and bungees (if required). Your deployment technique will be analyzed and feedback provided.

The clinic will feature a presentation from PG national champ Mitch Riley about how, when and where to deploy your reserve– including a discussion about basic and advanced techniques for wing management that minimizes the need for a deployment.
Willy D and John G will be there for your HG gear needs and will have info, discussion and a Q&A session about emergency procedures for plumbers.

The people who design reserve systems recommend that they get repacked every six months. Previous clinics have revealed that as many as 25% of us have systems that will not deploy correctly. The problems are usually from poor maintenance, improperly rigged equipment or limited understanding of deployment sequence issues.

It’s been over 2 years since the last reserve clinic in SB. How long has it been since your reserve has been inspected?
