2019 Skydiving Hall of Fame Celebration Schedule
October 17, 18, 19, 2019 -  Skydive Perris

10-Way SPEED STAR WARS Competition sponsored by Skydive Perris

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. (From Bill Newell's articles in Parachutist - The Rise and Demise of the Arvin Good Guys.) 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. Registration is $100 per team. Teams are required to have a captain (for us to contact) and a Videographer. Contact Marylou Laughlin to find out more.

Sequential Total Break World Record Attempts

Starting four days before the International Skydiving Hall of Fame Celebration,121 jumpers from 18 countries to make the very first attempts under new IPC rules for a 1st Sequential World Record with Total Break where 100% of the jumpers must move during each transition. Organized by Sequential Games (Patrick Passe, Dieter Kirsch, Milko Hodgkinson – pictured) Under old rules (which are still current) participants are allowed to have at least 35% of the jumpers in the whole group to move. Under new rules, 100% of the jumpers must move and it why it is named Total Break World Record.

Classic Accuracy Demo/Competition

Classic Accuracy is the oldest of the parachute disciplines, with the first World Championships held more than 50 years ago, it is a test of a skydiver's skill, judgement and ability to control their parachute accurately.  In the round canopy days, competitors would fly downwind to the target trying to hit a 10-centimeter disk in a pea gravel area. With today's high-performance canopy designs, jumpers fly the canopies into the wind and slowly with precision try to hit a 2-centimeter target on an electronic pad. There will be a three jump competition on Saturday close to all the activities so you can watch and be amazed at the skill and concentration of today's accuracy jumpers.

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 Perris is offering discounts for those attending the International Skydiving Hall of Fame Celebration.
