This was my first visit to Skydive Chicago, and my first Summerfest. This is a skydiver paradise. I was there for 10 days and never had to leave the drop zone once. Skydive Chicago has everything you could ever want as a skydiver. They most certainly are setting the STANDARD in skydiving.
I was there to represent Skyventure Colorado, so i was doing what we usually do at events; offering free skydiver coaching to all skill levels. There was a big way camp going on, and an outstanding cast of amazing organizers. We were there to provide our service of coaching to all those who were not quite at the skill level to be placed on the organized jumps and not quite up to par to join in on the big ways. This video is a compilation of my 40 jumps i made while at Summerfest.
Just to give you an idea of the magnitude of this event, here are some stats from Summerfest X:
622 loads for 11 days = apron 14,000 skydives
100 yes of trash
18,000 gal of jet A
12 cases of Toilet paper
8 gal hand soap
4 cases of garbage bags
Now that is one heck of an event. Can't wait to go again this year. See you there!
