Easter Boogie 2014

April 28, 2014

 

The annual Wild West Easter Boogie took place at Skydive Arizona April 18th to 20th with nearly 300 registered participants. Despite some weather rolling through part of the day Friday and part of the day Saturday it was one of the busiest Easter Boogies to date with Otters, Skyvans, and the DC3 working hard to keep everyone in the air. Special events included 4-Way FS Team 4 a Day with Arizona Airspeed and Arizona Relentless and Upright Big-ways with Arizona Arsenal. There were also plenty of load organizers on hand for everyone not participating in the special events. Performance Designs, UPT, and Vertical Suits all came out to support the event and provide demo gear.

The Wild West party took place at the Bent Prop Saturday evening with live country music by the Davis Highway Band, a mechanical bull, and 25 cent Boogie beer. Everyone came out in their best Western gear and posed for photos to enter the Wild West Costume Contest. Winners were chosen based on the number of Likes received by Saturday April 26th on the Skydive Arizona Facebook page. Ben Gillespie and Em Bam took first place and won 15 minutes of SkyVenture Arizona tunnel time.

Despite Saturday night's party jumping started early Sunday morning and continued until sunset. Grand total of 141 loads and 2,863 skydives, considering Friday and Saturday's weather holds that is one awesome Easter Boogie! Thanks everyone for coming out and a special thanks to all the Skydive Arizona staff who helped make the Boogie such a success.
