Atlanta Skydiving Weekly News

Wednesday was a day of firsts at ASC as local jumper Rick Bray capped off his first day in the tandem instructor course with a jump on Sigma tandem gear. Rick is finishing up his instructor training under tandem examiner Stewart Cavanaugh this week. Also on Wednesday, AFF student Richard graduated on a level 7 sunset jump with instructor Mike Gruwell. Nice stand-up landing Richard!

Punkin' Chunkin' was back for it's sixth year and beginners luck ruled on Saturday as a tandem student took home the pot of money when her pumkin hit only 7 yards from the target. On Sunday the competition wasn't quite as fierce. At 30 yards, packer Ryan Clough's pumpkin was the closest. Woohoo!

About 30 jumpers dressed up for Saturday's Halloween Costume Party and scarfed down the free dinner from the Cutaway Cafe. Jumpers in costume were rewarded with $15 jumps all day Sunday. Ben Butler was the "Pimp Daddy" as Amanda and Laura were his "hoes." Stewart and Blythe were Satan and Temptation who contrasted well with the "Angel," Kristen.

Skydivers enjoyed the 80 degree weather and slight breeze the entire weekend as summer continued to hang on in Georgia. Members of Team Flatline were organizing freefly jumps on Sunday while instructor Kevin Kaminski put together some 5- and 6-way belly jumps. Pro swooper Nate Gilbert was giving landing tips to experienced jumpers. Thanks to our pilot Dan Droppo for another weekend of perfect spots for all of the Super Twin Otter's 28 loads.

Don't forget the $15 jumps all Wednesday out of the Otter as well as $15 jumps on Saturday ! and Sunday before 10 a.m. See you at the DZ!
