Description

The Ka-Mo Sport Jumpers were established in 1959 and jumped at the Northern Airport, a private field with grassy runway about 12 miles west of Kansas City on U.S. 24-40. Skydiving at that time was one of the fastest growing sports in the U.S. Sport Parachute jumping began in the US in about 1956, the sport had been developing in France 20 years earlier. The club operated at this location until late 1968 after two accidents the operation became somewhat dormant for two years from the loss of the members. KaMo then began to operate again in 1970 at Edgerton, Kansas. In 1974 the club left Edgerton and splintered into two groups one jumping at the Suburban Airport in Kansas and the other locating at the Lexington Airport in Missouri. Late in 1979 the Suburban operation ceased with the closure of the airport making Lexington the only operation. In 1981 KaMo ceased to operate as a club and was reorganized as they are today as Missouri River Valley Skydivers Inc. Missouri River Valley Skydivers / KaMo have been in continuous operation at the Lexington Memorial Airport since March of 1974. Several Ka-Mo, and Missouri River Valley Skydivers sports jumpers have competed at US and World skydiving meets. Danny Payne, a Kansas City fireman was a member of a 4-man team that took second in accuracy competition in 1967 at the national U.S.P.A. meet. Skydive MRVS fielded a 4-way team that placed 4th at the US Nationals in 1984. Also many MRVS / KaMo members have been members on world record skydives for formations, and CRW events to include the world meet in 1993.
