Perris to host all U.S. National Championships
Perris Valley Skydiving will be hosting all of the U.S. National Championships in October of 2000. Not since Muskogee has a drop zone had the honor to hold all the USPA-sanctioned events, which include formation skydiving, skysurfing, freestyle, canopy relative work and style and accuracy.
Owner Melanie Conatser took Penny Gueswel to the USPA Board meeting in Washington D.C., held from July 15-18, to make their pitch for the events. Interested drop zones that had submitted their estimated costs beforehand in a timely manner had 12 minutes to make their oral and visual presentations to the board. The U.S. Nationals are usually divided into two events at two different drop zones. However, for 2000, Perris won both bids. Gueswel will now be an integral part of its organization and the competitorsí information packets.
Conatser, thrilled with their success, is making plans for further improvements to the grounds. The last of the 20-year-old structures, besides the buildings, will be torn down to make way for a new concrete packing area covered with a canopy similar to the creeping area and indoor/outdoor carpet. Thus, jumpers can have the choice of covered packing or grass packing. The walkway will also be widened three feet.
Further details about the competition will be available soon on the Perris Valley website.
