Skydivers Over Sixty

"You don't quit skydiving because you get old, you get old because you quit skydiving!" is a quote on the home page of a parachuting organisation, which includes within it a group called Skydivers Over Sixty (SOS) . We came across them from a video we found, of which this is a part. The film in its entirely can be seen here

 

 

The organisation of which SOS forms a part is Parachutists Over Phorty Society (POPS), which is where the wonderful quote was found. The UK branch is POPS UK .

Other smaller groups within POPS are JOS - Jumpers Over Seventy - and JOES - Jumpers Over Eighty Society. It even goes as far as JONS - Jumpers Over Ninety Society. It just goes to show that there really are No Limits!

We love the quote and think that although written about skydiving, when applied to all the sports we cover, it sums up our entire philosophy.

So, go SOS, JOS, JOES and JONS. We're just waiting for JOAHS, now!
