Written by Sydney

In case you missed it, Planet Green Socks and Blue Skies Magazine started a Skydiving Events group on the ole Facebook. In it, are around 900 people are contributing event links and information so the skydiving community can be in the loop about the happenings around the world.

Each month (or so), I’ll add a post here with a summary of all the badass boogies, skills camps, competitions, and other skydiving events that are submitted to the group. We’ll try to give you as much notice as possible so you can book your flights and hotels and hit the road to these events. If you have an event you’d like for us to add, feel free to submit it in the Skydiving Events group on Facebook or via the handy-dandy calendar portion of the website.
