ORGANISED BY: MAJLIS PERBANDARAN SELAYANG
Last week, 23rd & 24th Sept, 50 BASE Jumpers from 12 countries gathered here to participate in the “Gua Damai International BASE Jump 2014”. Some of the jumpers have participated 3 years in a row!
- Association of BASE Malaysia.
This year the participants of Gua Damai International BASE Jump 2014 had the luxury of free transportation, from Hotel Pacific Regency” to Gua Damai Extreme Park, courtesy of the organizer, MPS. This is to ensure that participants can arrive on time in the early morning. Upon arrival, they were served a welcome drink with a light breakfast. They were also provided mineral water throughout the day.
Participants paid a registration fee of RM100 each for two day jump. Those who jumped only for a day paid RM50. Each of them received a goodie bag filled with gifts, information about Selangor and MPS, an event sticker, a t-shirt and a sponsored drink coupons.
Our graph shows a comparison of participation in the year 2013 and year 2014. It shows that there is an increase of 25% in the number of participants and more jumps were attempted in 2014. Participants from Kuwait and Belarus were the newcomers this year. This year we see 3 women participants as compared to only 1 from USA last year.
