A Good Cause

A friend who has been an occasional instructor, guide, and initial responder when I banged myself up in Mexico a few years ago, has had an accident while running a clinic in Florida. Dave Prentice is a great pilot and a great guy who has dedicated much of his life to the pursuit and promotion of foot-launched free-flight.

David and Rasa have a new son named Sky and live modestly on the proceeds of his mentoring and guiding paraglider pilots all over the world. David's injuries are not life threatening, but included some surgery and hospitalization and his recuperation will cause some interruption in his income. I know that David and Rasa can weather this type of storm better than most, but the bills for his medical treatment will not be inexpensive without insurance.

I would like to extend an invitation to those who see this post to help out a fellow flyer in need. A PAYPAL account has been set up to help with the Prentice family needs at

David's website will soon have info about his progress.

Get well David and I'll see you on the hill soon.
