Enjoy the amazing visuals from Skydive Elsinore during CA State Record Camp 2 organized by Socal Converge.

The event was happening at the same time as the 4th Annual Echelon Freefly Film Festival, organized by Andy Malchiodi of Elsinore Echelon.

A total of 37 participants attended the camp and it started off hard on Friday! With multiple no contact formations flown first to get used to flying in your allocated slot in the formation without holding on to the formation. After those skydives went very well, the groups went on to flying 13-16 way linked formations on Friday.

Saturday 3 more smaller formations were flown, and because the team was doing so well in showing discipline and safety on all the jumps, the groups were put together and 2 more formation loads were flown with formations building up to 30+ freeflyers.

The record camp team got back together on Sunday morning, bright and early for 5 more training jumps of 30+ people doing formation load skydives.

A very good weekend overall where the whole team performed very well and I’m sure several people earned themselves slots for the record planned in November 2010!

Thanks and see you all again in August (and hopefully before then)
