Saturday August 7th, 2013 saw the fruition of over 10 years of relationship building by Asylum Design’s Martin Tilley and his Tribe, with city, county and state officials for a day of legal BASE jumping off the Auburn bridge. Bundled into Auburn’s “Adventure Day” 25 jumpers showcased the excitement and relevance of BASE jumping for the Auburn region. It was awesome!
Full story in next months print edition. Until then, check out some of the photos and positive media generated. This is also your opportunity to make YOUR VOICE HEARD!
The conversation of allowing more jumping events from the Auburn Bridge is ongoing within the community. Many people, residents, community members, businesses, etc., are becoming educated on the potential positive benefits and possibilities surrounding BASE jumping activities. And, you can count on the fact that many residents do not understand what it is we do with many assumptions. One way to guide the process is to become involved in the process.
