Are you excited and ready to be a part of history? For as long as anyone could remember, Skydive Perris and Skydive Elsinore hosted the legendary event called the Dueling DZ’s. Although the event took a hiatus, it’s back and better than ever!
The Dueling DZ’s is a friendly formation skydiving competition between jumpers of the two dropzones. The event’s aim is to help continue to build camaraderie between the two DZ’s in this fun event.
Skydive Perris dropzone manager, and legend himself, Dan BC said, “In my long experience, for some absolutely stupid reason, most DZs which are near by each other have a very bad relationship. They are more out to cut each other’s throats than to support each other. I’ve always thought this was ridiculous, unproductive and actually bad business. When I moved to California there was a very bad relationship with Elsinore and one of the first things I did was try to change that. Restarting Dueling DZs was part of that change and proof that the jumpers want nothing to do with the bad vibes the DZOs might have.”
Last year’s event was incredibly intense as a hilariously fun rivalry ensued between the teams, making the event incredibly fun and successful. So this year we’re ramping up for another great event this July 20th, 2019! Ready for more details?
Dueling DZ’s is a 6-Way event and teams will depart from Skydive Elsinore and Skydive Perris and land at the other dropzone. Each team will choose a dropzone to represent. There will be four rounds of randoms and blocks, exiting from 12,500’ with a working time of 50 seconds.
All licensed jumpers of any skill levels are welcome to attend! The scoring system will be of averages so it’s anyone’s game – plus, it’s going to be an incredible amount of fun! The reward is the award ceremony and celebration after the competition is complete at Sports Stop in Canyon Lake. Medals will be awarded along with bragging rights.
Be sure to follow the Facebook event page for real time updates, get in touch with members, look for teammates, and more! We also have more housekeeping details here for newer jumpers, visiting jumpers, and the curious.
Don’t delay friends! Get your team assembled, choose a DZ to represent and get registered!
