Bryan McGuigan's Life to be Celebrated Saturday at Atlanta Skydiving Center

Skydivers will remember and celebrate the life of Atlanta Skydiving Center Instructor and Freeflier Bryan McGuigan on Saturday at the drop zone. Skydiving Preacher James Teeple will conduct a memorial service on Saturday afternoon at ASC followed by the release of Bryan's ashes in freefall. Local skydivers will also track over the drop zone to remember Bryan. Click the links that follow to see more pictures of Bryan.

Friends and family from as far away as Canada will be in town to celebrate Bryan's life. ASC Skydivers Tyler Lawson and Dan McCallister are putting together a video of Bryan that will be shown Saturday. Mike Gruwell will be organizing the ash dive while Kenny Pugh will be leading the tracking dive. Bryan's wife, Vickie, will bring out Bryan's 63 pairs of Converse "Chuck Taylor's" for the skydivers to wear on the jump. The United States Parachute Association is sending Bryan's "Gold Wings" for the 1,000 jump mark he hit earlier this year.

Congratulations to our three newest Accelerated Free Fall graduates! Cory Remsburg, Tasha Hogan and Grant Morrison graduated the student program this past week. All three owe us lots of beer! Woohoo! We look forward to helping all of you get your first USPA license. Cory was already out early this week working toward his A License and learning how to pack with the help of Blythe Jordan (pictured right). Welcome to the world of skydiving!

On Saturday, the ASC swoopers ended the day swooping the pond through smoke placed at the entry gates to the pond. Team One provided the smoke as well as the night fireworks!

MTV cameramen were out Saturday getting footage of skydiver and race car driver Gunnar Jeannette for an upcoming broadcast of "True Life." Gunnar, Kenny and Chuck Owen will head to Idaho in May to finish the taping with the three skydivers going through a base-jumping course.

Laura O'Dowd made her 500th jump this past weekend while Ryan Clough (pictured left) hit the 600-jump milestone. We also had four skydivers from Sweden visiting. Welcome to ASC!

Don't forget the $15 Lift Ticket Wednesday at ASC, followed by the Breakfast Club of Canopy Piloting Thursday at 8 a.m. with the whole ASC gang hanging out at Buffalo Wild Wings in Hiram at 9 p.m. later that night. See you all this week at ASC!!!
