Monday, August 21, 2017 - 2pm

What - When the solar eclipse passes our way on Monday, August 21st 2017 at 2:45pm we will be jumping! We will also be raffling off two tandems with video to occur during the eclipse. That is correct, you will be in free-fall and under canopy during the solar eclipse! This once in a lifetime opportunity won't happen again for millions* of years. That day we will experience a 90% eclipse which means that 90% of the sun's disk will be covered by the moon. While this isn't a total eclipse it is going to be so close it might as well be and is is going to be really cool at any rate.

Details - Well of course there are details...your $5 raffle ticket enters you for a chance to win one of two tandem jumps during the solar eclipse. If you lose the raffle you are given the option to use the ticket as a deposit on a regular tandem skydive booked within 90 days (so you don't really lose). If the weather prevents the eclipse jump from happening the winners will still get a tandem with video (so they never lose). No refunds will be given for losing tickets. If you purchase your ticket online you will be emailed a ticket number and the physical ticket will be available for pickup durning normal business hours.

Drawing - Raffle drawing will occur live on our Facebook page on August 14th 2017 at 2:45pm.

Purchase your tickets here or at the DZ

* - Denotes it won't really be 1,000,000 years

These guys were totally amazing. I'm not gonna lie, I was super nervous, but these guys kept the situation light and I had the experience of a lifetime. I will definitely be returning.

Absolutely- freaking AMAZING! I had the best time ever here! The people are amazing all around. Could not have asked for a better time. Can NOT wait to come back!!!!

The people are all great and a joy to be around, they will educate you on the questions you may have and the setting itself is spectacular. They will make sure you have the best experience possible. I hung around all day waiting for my chance to jump and it looked like the opportunity wasn't going to come but at the last minute the skies cleared and it was the perfect setting for the perfect jump. John is an excellent instructor! I jumped with a beautiful sunset view over Washington. I can't wait to get more jumps in towards my A license! If you are on the verge of doing it, go ahead and make it a yes and take a leap of faith! This is the place you want to start your skydiving adventures.
