Midwest skydivers reunion set for labor day weekend

to benefit Skydiving Museum & Hall of Fame


The Midwest Skydivers Reunion, a reunion of competitive teams from Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin that were actively competing in the '70s and '80s will be held this Labor Day Weekend, August 29 – September 1, at Midwest Freefall Skydiving in Ray, Michigan.  All net proceeds from the event will be donated to the Skydiving Museum & Hall of Fame to support its efforts to build a museum. The event is a unique opportunity for Midwest skydivers of the '70s RW scene (and beyond) to reconnect with teammates, club members, DZOs, pilots, riggers and anyone who shared in that magical time.  The reunion was created as an opportunity for old friends to gather for a one-time event to remember those no longer with us and celebrate and reconnect with those still here.   


Pre-registration is closed but you can register on-site.  Spouses, significant others, family and friends are welcome to attend.
