We'll begin with the Women's Largest Sequential Dive the morning of Friday, June 16th. The sequential dives will give us a great practice and warm-ups for the Night Record.
The Women's Night Dive World Record jumps will be the nights of Friday, June 16th and Saturday, June 17th.

Audible altitude device.
Strobe light attached to the chest strap.

We are working on obtaining sponsorship for this event. Chem lights and strobe lighting is our first goal. I will follow up this invitation with more information as necessary.
Saturday night, June 17, we will have a Bagland picnic dinner. (If you're familiar with Skydive Chicago's Bagland Picnics, you know this will be a feast!) This will be before our night dive. After the night dive, of course, the party begins!
