A Seattle family finds their sea-legs in a land-locked country

The school PTA put on a fabulous Soccer-Family-Fair-Funfest fundraiser event this past weekend. The highlight of the all-day event was the big prize raffle. Not the prizes so much (which were pretty awesome -- fancy luxe lodge weekends, dinners out, spa treatments, etc) but how they picked the winners. 'Each ticket' was a print-out of a ball....the balls were laid out all over the soccer pitch by the secondary school....the winners were determined by which ones were landed on by the SKYDIVERS!!
Three intrepid parents (two dads, one mom) launched them out of a little plane at 6,000 feet and all landed safely, on target, and right on schedule. Cool.
