Georgia Skydiving League Meet
The first meet of the 2007 Georgia Skydiving League (GSL) took place this past Saturday at Atlanta Skydiving Center. There was a great turnout for the meet with jumpers from all over the state, as well as regulars, competing.
After four rounds of tough competition and a viewing of each team's jumps (video slots were furnished by Atlanta Skydiving Center), the results were in. In the A Class, Adam's Madams (Adam Chamely, Elizabeth Athanas, Polina Wilson, and Laura Yund) came in first place with 15 points followed in second by Mike and a Three-Way (Mike Gruwell, Tyler Lawson, Kathleen Largent, and Jessica Wesnofske) with 9 points. In the AA Class, Black Hawk Down (Svetlana Cherkasova, Val Filatov, Anthony Stone, and Bob Seaman) took the top spot.
Special thanks to Anthony Stone for organizing the meet, Edvaldo Cruz, Shane Migliore, and Doug Lewis for flying video slots, as well as all the participants. GSL events will continue throughout the summer. For more information, contact Anthony Stone at firstname.lastname@example.org.
