New Site Features/Profile Updates

Hey guys,

I'm trying to update the website. I started with updating the officers (which will change soon, but what the heck; it's good practice), and I'm trying to add a page for reserve repack dates so we'll all know what's due when (even if it is just a simple google doc- gimme a break, I know jack about computers).  I also want to add another page for ride sign-ups/availability for each weekend, so you could just check online to see who's going. We'll see how effective any of these are.

 Also, if you'd like your profile updated, send me a picture and some info you'd like posted. This holds true at pretty much any time you think it's out of date, as updating the profiles is a pretty quick process.

Updating website

Hey guys!

This is my first post as secretary of the skydiving team. We've been working to update the website so you should be seeing lots of changes in the next couple of weeks. We're trying to make the profiles page so that members can update the info themselves, and we're also trying to make a section on the website where people can sign up on the dates they intend to head down to our dropzone. That should help in coordinating rides.

Anyways, we had a bunch of interest in the club last thursday, both from chalking we've done around campus and from the table we'd set up at the info session earlier. We'll continue to do this occasionally throughout the semester so people know we're around! Any people interested in joining the club should contact our president (his info is on this website) to set up a first jump course, or just attend the meetings thursday for more info.

 Hope to be adding a lot more to this website soon, so check back every now and then and see what we've got going on!

 -Lee Farris, Secretary

   

New College Skydiving Website!

College Skydiving
www.CollegeSkydiving.com
Over the course of the National Collegiate Competition this past year, there was a lot of talk about college students having a tough time getting together for events.  There is now a new website that was started in January this year by students from Georgia Tech, Kansas State University, and Virginia Tech.  A few ideas from these students and a few ideas from Chris Spence have turned into something pretty big for the college skydiving community.  The site is www.CollegeSkydiving.com and everyone is welcome to join the Forum and Photo Gallery.
