2-point 107-way at Skydive Chicago during Summerfest 2009 Can't Post

Saturday saw a new Illinois sequential record, as BJ Worth, Roger Ponce DeLeon, Larry Henderson, and other organizers put a 107-way through two points.

Similar to the 252-way sequential planned for Thailand in 2010, the 107-way sequential was built with wackers breaking off and joining other wackers for long spiraling arms around the base. Here's a link to the 2010 World Team sequential dive planned. http://www.theworldteam.com/...1Sequential_2010.htm

BJ had a personal commitment on Saturday, when the successful formation was built, but Larry called him to tell him of the group's success. Larry also advised him that two jumpers on the dive were injured on landing, when they ended up downwind of the landing area and had off-field landings.

Congrats are due to the group, made up of locals, other US-based jumpers, and foreign jumpers, many of whom are looking for invitations to participate in World Team 2010 and 2011.

Many Dropzone.com regulars participated in the event, and will likely chime in with their stories.

Hi, Jack. I am so glad I was there. BJ and Roger challenged all of us. I hope we get to do it again next year!

Awesome stuff! Big formations sound like a blast, am working my way to it slowly. Should be participating in 10-20 ways next weekend, so pumped about it! Rock on guys!

The first point

I don't think still pictures do it justice. Seeing the transition between points adds a lot to the experience.

Does anybody have a good video of this 107-way formation? I bet it was amazing looking... I'll need many more years and jumps before I am able to join you guys, but someday I look foward to having that pleasure.

DVD is available here

Maybe someone can ask Charles to put just the 2-pointer online somewhere. Wink
