Speed Formation Competition

The 5th Annual Pair of Kings Speed Formation Competition is on at Bay Area Skydiving in Byron, CA, on Saturday, April 15. All NorCal jumpers and anyone passing through are welcome to join them.

It's 12-way teams, 6 in each airplane, one floater on each plane. Free fly the exit, build a different first point each time, bonus deductions for extra points. For more information contact Mad John at

6-Way Scrambles at DeLand

The PD Factory Team and Skydive DeLand will be hosting a 6-way scrambles event the weekend of April 14-16. This is a low stress event focusing on some fun skydives, so grab as many of your friends as you can and get on out here. They will throw everyone's name in and pick out groups of six. It should be a blast.

The PD Factory Team will be there to help with coaching for everyone and jump with some of the groups. Everyone registering will get some promo goodies and the chance for door prizes. One lucky person will even win a discount certificate for a new PD canopy!

The DZ will be "cranking" with the newly upgraded Skyvan (12 min to altitude) and the Otter. DeLand FX will also be hosting their skills camp at the same time. You will definitely want to be out in DeLand this weekend. To register or for more information contact Skydive DeLand at or PD at

California Tracking Contest

The 14th annual California Tracking Contest will be held at the Parachute Center in Lodi, California on May 6, 2000. There will be two classes: intermediate, 199 jumps or less and open 200+ jumps. Cash prizes and trophies for both. For more information contact Tom McCarthy at (916) 923-6102 or Bill Dause at (209) 369-1128.
