A soft, cool breeze and a beautiful oceanfront location provided the perfect venue for the Path of Excellence Award to be presented to the 400-way largest formation world team. The Daytona Beach Bandshell provided ample space for the large crowd gathered to honor this incredible group of skydivers. The evening's festivities included a BBQ sponsored by Sun Path Products, Inc., Path of Excellence Presentations (plaques sponsored by Bourdon Forge Co., Inc.) and entertainment sponsored and provided by Bruno Brokken and Anna Moxness. A Path of Excellence Tribute jump was held at Skydive DeLand earlier in the afternoon.
World Team 2006 - World Record 400-Way – Largest Freefall Formation - February 8, 2006 over Udon Thani, Thailand was the largest multi-national sports team ever assembled to pursue a common goal.
