Safety Weekend at Atlanta Skydiving Center includes $15 jumps, manufacturer demos
Skydiving Center is providing safety seminars, free gear maintenance
stations, manufacturer demos and $15 experienced jumper lift
tickets this weekend as part of Safety Day. Drop zones around
the country are focusing on safety Saturday, but Atlanta Skydiving
Center has made a full weekend out of the event. Don't miss
this weekend at ASC!
USPA members with a current membership card will receive
$15 jumps all weekend long. Those without a current membership
can have an application faxed to USPA by ASC to receive
the $15 jumps.
Egon Sussman of Relative Workshop will have demo "Skyhook"
rigs with three canopies for experienced jumpers wanting
to test jump the Skyhook reserve static line system. A full
line of Performance Designs canopies will be available to
demo as PD Marketing Manager Justin Thornton will be at
ASC all weekend. PD reserve canopies will be available to
jump as mains for those who have never had a reserve ride.
Sabre2, Spectre, Velocity and Katana mains will also be
on hand in addition to ASC's everyday PD demo canopies.
Throughout the weekend, three gear-check stations will
be available for all jumpers. Chuting Star Rigging Loft
riggers will be available to give complete skydiving gear
inspections, replace main closing loops and clean cutaway
cables. And on Saturday night, ASC instructors will give
a safety seminar on a variety of skydiving topics.
The "ASC Nightout" is this Thursday (March 10)
at 7:30 p.m. at Taco Mac on East-West Connector. Come hang
out with the ASC crew at Taco Mac!
weekend was absolutely beautiful! While the winds put a
dent in our skydiving on Saturday, we still managed several
loads in the Twin Otter before and after the strong, gusty
afternoon winds. ASC 4-way team Inviscid was training for
the 1st GSL meet later this month.
Sunday was "RW Skills Day" at ASC hosted by 4-way
team Airlock. More than 10 jumpers took advantage of the
free organizing and coaching from Airlock members.
Congratulations to our newest ASC skydiver, Robyn Wood,
who graduated the student program over the weekend and is
now working on her A-License! We look forward to seeing
Robyn and her husband Dan jumping together soon.
Atlanta Skydiving videographer and swoop competitor Tyler
Lawson finished his tandem skydiving rating requirements
and introduced several first-time jumpers to the sport of
skydiving on Saturday and Sunday. The beer fridge is awaiting
your donation Tyler!
And a big thanks to Larry Moore who recently had his new
Javelin assembled by Chuting Star Rigging Loft and brought
the riggers a case of Guinness after making his first jump
on the new rig. You da man Larry!
See you all this weekend!
