COVID-19 UPDATE - MAY 2020:
LEAPFEST 2020 is Officially Cancelled
This difficult decision is based on our continued prioritization of competitor and spectator safety, and the potential harm that may result from running such a popular and well-attended event. Additionally, the travel and social distancing restrictions that are now in effect make it impractical to conduct an International Parachute Competition here in Rhode Island. We are deeply disappointed to have to make this announcement and hope that everyone will join us next year for LEAPFEST 2021!
If you have Registered for LEAPFEST 2020, you will be contacted via email with more information regarding this cancellation. If you have submitted your Registration Payment, a refund will be forthcoming.
Thank you for your continued support of LEAPFEST!
International competitors are not required to have conducted an MC-6 jump prior to LEAPFEST. An MC-6 familiarization jump will be conducted here in Rhode Island for all International competitors during the week before Competition Day (August 1, 2020).
