CT State Record Attempt
Most Jumps in a Day
Hosted by Connecticut Parachutists Inc
On June 15, 2021 we are attempting to set a CT state record for the most jumps in one day by a single person. We are aiming for 100 jumps! This would put CT amongst 9 other states with more than 100 jumps in a day. Our local S&TA, multi-rated instructor, and demonstration jumper, Doug Hendrix, will be the jumper attempting the record.
We are soliciting donations from local businesses to support the event. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Ellington Fire Department. The Ellington FD regularly comes to our facility for advanced training so they can be ready to respond if an accident were to occur. The Ellington FD has been excellent to our business as well as the surrounding area.
We would love for supporting businesses to set up advertising material (banners, handouts, etc) at our facility at Ellington Airport for the month of June. On any given weekend, we have more than 100 customers from the general public entering our facility to do tandem jumps. A majority of these customers are from Hartford and Tolland counties, although we frequently have customers from all across the state and other neighboring states.
We will have local news coverage and plan on reaching out to local newspaper and television outlets to gain publicity for the event. We will proudly list local businesses supporting the event in all of our press releases.
In addition to the general public, we have experienced skydivers at our drop zone jumping every weekend and these skydivers primarily live and work throughout Connecticut. We are also soliciting donations and hosting raffles from our skydivers. As a way of saying thank you, we are inviting these skydivers and supporting local businesses to a cookout on Saturday, June 26thafter jumping has concluded, around 8:00 pm.
We aim to build community relations with this event and at the same time, set a record! Please reach out if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. Connecticut Parachutists Inc is a 501(c)-4 corporation. Donations are not tax-deductible.
