There's no better way to learn about terminal velocity than to experience it yourself! As one of the oldest (and nerdiest!) college skydiving clubs in the country, the MIT Skydiving Club knows how to get down!
The MIT Skydiving Club will hold E-board Elections + Movie Night on Friday, Nov 14 @ 6:00 pm in 4-231.
There are four open officer positions: President, Treasurer, Transportation Officer, and Gear + Sponsorship Officer. If you would like to run, please send your name, year, officer position, and 2-3 sentences about why you would like to run for the position to Email self-nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
After elections, we will be watching the 1991 classic Point Break, with a totally ridiculous but awesome skydiving sequence!
Congrats to club members Andrew Horning and Banks Hunter for both earning their USPA Coach ratings this year!
They can now both teach the general (non-method-specific) sections of the first jump course, conduct group freefall skills training, supervise students making group freefall training jumps (Cat F-H), and conduct re-currency training and jumps with licensed skydivers!
Check out club member Andrew Horning giving at talk at the MIT Museum!
