1st 100 way

Recommended Posts

The 1st 100-way belly was at the Muskogee Nationals, but I can't remember which year. Also, I can't find any video for it anywhere, anyone have a link to it? It would be 16mm or VHS. I want to say it was 1985-6 because my wife went with me for the first time one of those years and she was excited to see the historic jump from the ground.

1986

Earlier that summer, skydivers gathered at Pitt Meadows, near Vancouver, Canada to try and build a hundred-way. Their jumps were part of the festivities surrounding the EXPO 86 World's Fair. After building a series of 99-ways, they gave up.

A month-or-so later, most of them gathered at a Freak Brothers Convention to attempt more hundred-ways. After building a series of 99-ways, they adjourned to the USPA Nationals in Muskogee where they succeeded.

If memory serves, they decided to try an 8-way base in Muskogee over the previous attempts with 5-ways to speed things up.
