Golden Knights head to the US National Skydiving Championships 2011

The Golden Knights Competition team is gearing up for the U.S. National Skydiving Championships.  Nationals will be held at Skydive Arizona in Eloy, AZ.  The Golden Knights will compete in 4-way, 8-way, 16-way and 10-way formation skydiving.  GK8 will be returning once again to defend their Gold medal from 2010 while the Golden Knights Female 4-way Team (GKF4) will make its Nationals debut this year.  Between the two teams, over 1,100 training jumps have been made this year.  This year is particularly important because the results of this competition will determine who represents the USA at the 2012 World Parachuting Championships in Dubai, UAE.  If you recall, GK8 competed and took Gold at the World Parachuting Cup 2011 in Saarlouis, Germany in August.

Practice jumps and registration for the events is Sunday, 30 October and the competition officially kicks off on Halloween!  Stay tuned for frequent updates and pictures.
