Updated 8/2: The event has been rescheduled to 8/11 Sunday at 1 PM.

Updated 7/26: Sorry all, again the forecasted weather on Sunday 7/28 is 50% rain, we are rescheduling the event to 8/3 Saturday at 9 am (rain day 8/4 Sunday). So far the weather for both 8/3 and 8/4 look promising. Hope it will finally work out.

Updated 7/12: Sorry all, the weather is not cooperating tomorrow & 7/20 doesn't look good either. We are postponing the event to 7/28 Sunday at 9 am (rain day 8/3 Saturday). Hope it will finally work out.

Updated 6/27: Due to weather concern, this event has been rescheduled to 7/13. Another date 7/20 is also available.

Making skydivers since 1984, Skydive Cross Keys has introduced more than 250,000 people to world of recreational skydiving. Freefall Adventures Skydiving School is the best equipped skydiving school in the Northeast, with an experienced skydiving staff second to none.

Have ever want to try skydiving, and none of your friends want to go with you. Here is your chance to go with a group of awesome young singles, meet new friends and have the experience of the life time; best of all, early birds will save $40.

Three reasons why you should skydive with Cross Keys.

* Established facility with nearly 30 years of experience (avoid new skydive schools)
* Large airplane that accommodates 22 skydivers so less waiting time (not 4 at some other places).
* Separate cameraman so DVD is not distorted (not like 2-in-1 instructor & cameraman at other new schools)

For more Why Jump Cross Keys?

There are certain things you said you’d never do: wear white after Labor Day, enter a jalapeno eating contest and sing karaoke in public. And while you steer clear of certain risky endeavors, you still like to live on the edge. Get ready to bring out your inner daredevil because we’re about to give you a little push.

Located just 2 hours drive from New York City, each tandem skydive includes a training session on the ground (up to one hour) to give you the skills needed to participate in your dive. When it’s time to jump, you’ll be attached to a certified skydiving instructor in a full body harness so you’re kept safe and sound. From the 60 seconds of free fall to your ten minutes under the parachute, your instructor will be there to back you up. It’s the perfect way to feel the rush of skydiving while having the freedom to enjoy the experience and the amazing views of the surrounding area.

With more than 20 years of experience, Cross Keys is your key to a thrilling and safe dive. Plus, they offer proof for all those Doubting Thomas’ with an optional HD Video package add-on that includes a professionally edited DVD of the entire experience. After your 60 seconds of freefall, those other risky things won’t seem half as bad.

Date/Time: August 11th Sunday 1:00 PM (The carpool time is 10:30 AM) & back to NYC around 7:30 PM

Cost:
Regular $194 ($84 Deposit; also bring remaining $110 cash).

DVD & Still Photos for additional $105 ($25 off regular $130).

    Dear all, Sunday's weather forecast at Williamstown is 43 to 51% chance of rain in the morning. Looks like we will need to postpone the event to 8/3 (rain day 8/11). They may have few spots left for Saturday afternoon jump for those interested (although I have rafting event & won't be able to go). Will update this tomorrow afternoon.
