What an amazing event last weekend. Thank you to everyone that participated in the 2013 Halloween Boogie.

Friday started off with about 45 registered jumpers waiting for the rain a clouds to clear out. Taya and Purple Mike completed a wingsuit first flight course in the meantime but unfortunately jumps were not meant to be. We did, however, get this fantastic double rainbow out of it.

Saturday's weather was beautiful and we cranked out 15 back to back full Super Otter loads right off the bat. Fortson kept it turning with 20 way dives, Joey had 4 and 8 ways going, and Todd had some great angle dives and head down happening. Later in the day we had a docked double wingsuit rodeo out the King Air! Helicopter and Bi-Plane jumps were cranking and we had zero cutaways or incidents!

As sunset Saturday night drew in the BBQ was served and the costumed were donned. An amazing party ensued with magician Howie the Great and The Imperial Opa Circus for entertainment. Great costumes everybody. Congrats to Roman Head and Brooke Johnson for winning the contests top prizes, 40% off a Vector container and a day of free jumping Sunday. It was capped off by a brilliant night pyro jump by the Silver Wings.
