Lodi Sequentials April 2011

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

The Lodi Sequentials continues it’s reputation as a skydiving event that pushes the limits of freefly skydiving.

For the last 5 years I have been very lucky to be part of this event, and this year was again a big hit. The weather did not cooperate for most of the event. Friday and Saturday got winded out. The winds were too high and too unpredictable to be able to hold a safe event and Bill Dause, owner of the Parachute Center in Lodi, together with organizers Mike Knight and TJ Landgren made the call not to jump that day.

The group went out and did some other activities in the area, and gathered back at the dropzone on Sunday morning with hopes to turn that day into a big one. Which the team did!

4 rounds of 8 way VRW competition were flown, with 5 teams competing against each other, then a quick break for lunch and on to 4 formation loads to fly 40 way sequential freefly skydives.

A long day, but a satisfying one for sure.
