10-Way SPEED STAR WARS Competition

The release of Kool & The Gang's only platinum-selling single was released in late 1980, well after 10-way speed start was born.   Ten-way speed star competition traces its roots back to 1967 when three teams - Arvin Good Guys, the Group from Elsinore and the Old River Rats - competed at Taft, CA.  The Arvin Good Guys won with two back-to-back 10-way stars. Clarice Garrison was on the Arvin team, changing 10-man to 10-way. Fever for 10-way speed star competition spread from Southern California to ZHills, Hinckley, Seattle and Texas and eventually around the world and now it is making a comeback. Dive into nostalgia and organize your team for the 10-Way SPEED STAR WARS experience using USPA's no-show rules. Contact Marylou Laughlin to find out more. upsalou@mac.com

Jumpers Over Seventy (JOS) Record Attempts

Once upon a time finding ten skydivers over 40 was a big deal and to bring together these "old-timers" Parachutists Over Phorty Society or POPS was founded in 1966.  And since then POPS has spread its wings to include Skydivers Over Sixty (SOS), Jumpers Over Seventy (JOS), Jumpers Over Eighty Society (JOES) and Jumpers Over Ninety Society (JONS).

On April 22, 2018 Jumpers Over Seventy (JOS) set a new 25-way world record at Skydive Perris.

Join JOS November 1, 2, 3, 2018 as they try to beat that record. The passing of a few measly decades has dampened the passion, joy and determination of this group. These dedicated skydiving enthusiasts continue to set new records and we expect to see another one in November. Contact Donna and Ski Chmielewski at donskichm@aol.com 

 

Tandem Jumps

Get back in the air again and have your kids or grandkids join you. In 2017, Kim Knor did a generation jump with her daughter, Tara (right) and her granddaughter, Katie. What a way to bond! Donna Wardean made her first jump in May, 1966 at Arvin, CA. Donna said making a tandem jump "is like "putting a fish back into water."  Skydive City is offering discounts for those attending the International Skydiving Hall of Fame Celebration.
