Skydive Arizona - 2014 Easter Boogie
The annual Wild West Easter Boogie will be taking place at Skydive Arizona from April 18th to 20th. The event will feature no registration fee, $21 jump tickets, free boogie beer each night, and load organizing/special events by Arizona Arsenal, Arizona Airspeed, and AXIS Flight School. We'll be flying Otters, Skyvans, and our DC3 during the event.
First thing Friday our Skydive Arizona load organizers will be out to help get the weekend started. We'll finish the day off with a Cowboy Shoot Out on the last load. During this landing competition you'll shoot for accuracy, shoot a paintball gun at a target, and shoot a shot of tequila. Register at Manifest the day of the event. After sunset we'll be having a BBQ Rib Dinner outside the Bent Prop with musical entertainment by local favorite Ke Dime. Tickets for the dinner will be $10 and will be on sale all day Friday and at the Bent Prop Friday evening (while supplies last).
There will be more load organizers out to jump on Saturday, and those who would like a little more structure to their jumping day can check out events hosted by Arizona Airspeed, Arizona Relentless, and Arizona Arsenal.
For the belly flyers Arizona Airspeed and Arizona Relentless will be hosting 4-Way Days. This event groups three skydivers with similar skill levels and a member of Arizona Airspeed or Arizona Relentless to make 4-way FS skydives and train like a team for the day. Come learn the randoms and blocks for the first time or brush up on old skills; all experience levels are welcome to participate. New skydivers are especially encouraged to attend. There is no additional charge for the event beyond the cost of your own jump tickets. Meet at 8 am in the Manifest hangar. If you are planning to participate please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Arizona Arsenal will be organizing Upright Bigway jumps. To participate in this event you must be able to fly relative and take docks in a group of 8 people. If you are planning to participate please email email@example.com.
After jumping the Wild West Party will be kicking off at 8 pm at the Bent Prop with 25 cent boogie beer, a mechanical bull, and live county music by the Davis Highway Band. The party will also include a photo booth and western costume contest. In order to win, you must have your picture taken at the Photo Booth. The pictures will be posted on Facebook Monday morning. The three photos with the most Likes (on the Skydive Arizona page ONLY) by noon Saturday April 26th will win prizes. You must be registered for the Easter Boogie and tag yourself in the picture in order to win prizes.
When everyone rolls out of bed on Sunday we'll have more load organizers, more 4-Way with Airspeed and Relentless and more upright bigways with Arsenal.
It's going to be a great event so come on out and enjoy the spring Arizona weather! Check out the Easter Boogie page on Skydive Arizona's event calendar for more details as they develop.
