Will Big Ed Be Given Permission To Jump The Canyon via user

The Twin Falls City Council is holding a meeting regarding permission for Ed Beckley and others to jump the canyon! Ed and other candidates will be asked to give a 15 minute presentation regarding their proposals to jump the canyon and will be asked to stand for questions after their presentations.

Also applying are:

  • Scott Smith, Adrenaline Nation
  • Brad Kuhlman, Ping Pong Productions

According to The Times News in September, Beckley paid nearly $1 million to secure the lease to the 1,147-acre landing site on the north side of the canyon, but that lease stipulates he must also have the needed permits from the city of Twin Falls if he chooses to use the same mound of dirt Knievel did on the opposite side of the canyon.

After Beckley won the state Department of Lands auction, city officials said they would not simply hand over a jump permit on the launch site to the highest bidder. The city opened its permitting process to everyone — including those without the landing rights — seeking to recreate the stunt.

The meeting that will be held to determine who will be given permission to jump the canyon on Thursday November 21 at 4 p.m. at Vera C. O’Leary Middle School auditorium.

The meeting is intended to gather information. No decision will be made there.
