Olympic icon Jonny Moseley partners with House of Air, will host Opening Weekend festivities as ‘Brand Ambassadair’

SAN FRANCISCO (September 16, 2010) – On the day after House of Air
opened its doors to the public, owners Paul McGeehan and Dave
Schaeffer
were thrilled to announce a new partnership with Olympic
Gold-Medalist Jonny Moseley.  The former “Sportsman of the Year” will
serve as an ‘Ambassadair’ for the ground-breaking trampoline park,
helping to spread the word about the venue’s ability to make “Flyers”
out of all of us.

“When I first heard about House of Air, I knew it was something that I
wanted to be a part of,” said Moseley.  “What I like most about it is
the fact that it offers something for everyone.  Whether you’re a
highly-skilled athlete looking to hone your skills, or an adult or
child looking to experience the joy of flying, you’re guaranteed to
have a great time.”

Moseley also stated that he will be hosting House of Air’s grand
opening celebration, which will begin on Friday, September 17 and
continue throughout the weekend.  The celebration will include live
DJs, exciting raffle giveaways, and demonstrations from expert
jumpers.  “We’re going to have a lot of fun this weekend,” added
Moseley, who will be doing interviews with the media throughout the
weekend.  “I’ll be judging a “dinner roll” competition on Friday
evening.  The winner will receive a pair of K2 HardSide skis, so
hopefully lots of people will be eager to show off their moves.”

The weekend’s festivities will kick off on Friday at 1:00pm with a
ribbon cutting ceremony, and will last all evening, before resuming
again on Saturday morning.  Those who would like to purchase tickets
to jump during these or any other times can do so by visiting

Will you attend any of the Grand Opening days? Remember it’s not really at the 900 block of Mason Street atop Nob Hill and it’s not at Fort Mason, neither. It’s in the Presidio on the way to the Golden Gate Bridge 

See you there!
