ASM is supportive of the old and the new generations of skydivers and contributors. You don't have to be super experienced to write an article or send in your photos, everybody is welcome and encouraged. Though we are looking up to the super experienced to offload some of their wisdom in the form of technical and education articles.
While we don't want to limit your creativity, there are some limits to length of articles and number of photos etc.
World Championships - please provide all the Australian team members names and photos, with a small profile on each and where possible short stories and quotes from teams and competitors. Please also provide 2 - 4 destination photos to use in the design.
Boogies - please write about the new people or planes and describe the innovative jumps happening. Please add anything technical and be creative with your writing style so as not to be "just another boogie article". What made your boogie stand out?
Jump Pigs - there are a number of people who have made 10,000 jumps, which is a huge achievement, and credit should be given to these people. There are plenty of these people on the list, if you know and love one of them, please take it upon yourself to run them.
Shining Stars, The Belle of the Boogie, The Next Generation - it's not just about the oldies or the mega experienced. The up-and-coming jumpers are equally worthy of an interview. Don't be shy.
Ring the Bell, DZ Directory, Safety Matters, Directors Direction - are all supplied by the APF and it's Directors.
If you have a good knowledge of an aspect that people can learn from, please put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and do a great service to the community.
