Title: OzoneJim's Party
Post by: moegeo on June 26, 2012, 07:51 PM
Good evening all,
There will be a memorial service  celebration/ party held in OzoneJim’s honor on Sunday July 1, at Lake Yosemite Sailing Association at Lake Yosemite, Merced CA. The festival will begin at 3:00 pm, and I’m not sure if it will ever end.  
There will be music, Ozone story time, potluck and Tecate. Bring your ground displays as Jim's family would love to see you bring what Jim has loved for years, kites, color, and his friends.
I hope you will make it.
Thanks… Love You Man.

Please respond to this post if you will be able to make it. A head count will help.

Flew this on the day he left.

Still chokes me up, the thought of him gone.

Yea its hard to believe he's gone.  See a few of you in a couple hours and those of you that can't  go join us in spirit and fly one for Jim.  If you fly one for Jim today please post up pics.

Wish we could be there for real.  Will certainly be there in spirit.  Thanks for posting that Paso picture.  Will certainly miss sharing such moments with Jim.  A truely wonderful guy that will be sorely missed.  Have a riot today all and give him a party to remember. 

best wishes to all,

Mark

The party was great. I even learned a bit about Jim I didn't know from all the stories going around.  The funny thing was while we were talking about Jims "light pole" candy drop rig landing Dano's tethered NTK delta decided to do an imitation on the tether wire for the mast flag pole.  Coincidence?

Coincidence?

I think not!

I was sitting there and saw the first wrap, i ran to it and grabbed my banner pole to save it, For every push to unwrap it, i got 3 more twists to counter each one of mine.

Your story Anthony explains alot of why i lost the battle.  ;) Glad to know he was there!

We did finally get the kite down a few hours later.
