Start Skydiving Safety Day!

March 2nd, 2019

Register here: http://events.constantcontact.com/register/event?llr=vdugricab&oeidk=a07eg0t8huoc2c3420c

We always hold our Safety Day event at Start Skydiving every year on the Saturday immediately prior to the official USPA date. We do this so skydivers may also attend Safety Day at other dropzones that use the official USPA date. This is how strongly we encourage you to attend our Safety Day event at Start Skydiving!

You do not want to miss this great opportunity to catch up with your skydiving family and refresh your knowledge and skills regarding skydiving safety, especially after a long winter layoff. Everyone will learn something new or at least refresh something they had forgotten. Our Safety Day event at Start Skydiving is always entirely free for all to attend!

All skydivers of every skill and experience level are strongly encouraged to attend, including student skydivers that have completed at least an FJC. Other people that benefit from attending are those who wish to learn more about all of the different safety aspects involved with skydiving, such as local pilots that fly in and out of MWO. While Safety Day is not necessarily intended for people that have only ever done tandem skydives, you are still invited to join us! This is a great chance to meet the skydiving community, learn more about all of the different safety aspects of skydiving, and hear from a special guest speaker!

Register now! Everyone who registers and attends our entire event will be offered free jumps, special discounts, and a free lunch! There will also be door prizes for everyone who attends! Don’t miss out!

We will be bringing back our special Safety Day Rate due to popular demand. This special rate will be exclusive to only those who attend our entire Safety Day event and it can be used all season long. Our special Safety Day bulk/block jump prices will also be available for purchase for those who attend. (Discount rates do not apply to jumps using rental equipment.)

We will also be holding a raffle for free jump tickets and skydiving gear discounts. There will be at least 50-60 drawings during the raffle! You will have the chance to win multiple items! (All raffle items are intended for skydivers that have completed at least an FJC. You must be present for the entire day to enter and win the raffle items.)

Of course, it would not be Safety Day without our Round-Robin Safety-Stations and our skydiving safety presentations that will cover every aspect of our wonderful sport. Each safety station will give you a raffle ticket. You must complete each safety station to redeem your tickets.

Come on out and join us for our annual Safety Day event at Start Skydiving! We look forward to seeing you there!
