$12.50 Lift Tickets Saturday and Sunday at ASC!

What a great weekend of skydiving! The Super Twin Otter flew all weekend long in Cedartown, while our new Porter flew all weekend at Alabama Skydiving Center in Pell City.

Congratulations to Charlie Cummings who earned his A License after mastering his last requirement: the A License checkout dive. Instructor/Coach Jim Vance said Charlie performed flawlessly on the ground and in the air! Charlie's proficiency card has been faxed to the United States Parachute Association and his A License is on the way. Nice job Charlie!

We have three newbie skydivers among our ranks at ASC. Mark Christie, Rodrigo Bianchini and Alesha Noble each completed their 7th level of Accelerated Freefall instruction this weekend. We're looking forward to seeing more of you at ASC!

The 8-way teams were training on Saturday, as well as Georgia Tech 4-way team, GT Airlock. GT Airlock was training under the watchful eyes of Allison Yasitis and Brian Timberlake, but veteran organizer and trainer Doug Glover was never far away to provide advice and support. Saturday, we finished the day with a beautiful Sunset Big Way! Members from all three teams plus a couple of staff members combined for a 14-way multiple-point skydive. Greg Harmon was generous enough to offer video, so click here to view the Big Way, and see a list of everyone involved!

It was great to see Chris Curry back in the air after his winter layoff. Following a checkout dive with Jim, he jumped the rest of the day. Welcome back Chris! And check out the photo of Chris in a hot RW dive with the Carbones and Mike Gruwell on the cloud wall next to manifest the next time you're out at ASC.

Tim Allen was visiting us again this weekend from Frontier Skydiving. He took advantage of Nate Gilbert's freefly coaching, to sharpen his skills. Tim seemed to enjoy himself, but was anxious to return to his home DZ where he has new gear waiting for his return. Tim is not able to visit often, but we hope that he will join us again next time he is in Atlanta!

A big thanks to Edvaldo Cruz for the blue sky and cloud paint job downstairs. Edvaldo will be painting up the stairwell to the second floor soon.

It's going to be an exciting boogie weekend at Atlanta Skydiving Center starting Saturday as container manufacturer Mirage will be in town with a booth and demo rigs. Come check out the latest Mirage features. Factory stock rigs from Mirage will be available to try on and purchase in addition to the selection already in stock at ASC. Kim of Mirage will also give away a 35% discount certificate on a new Mirage container. Woohoo!

Saturday and Sunday will also feature $12.50 lift tickets for experienced jumpers! There is a $15 registration fee. So come enjoy the cheap lift tickets as well as the free open bar Saturday night!

And lastly, don't forget the $15 lift tickets on Wednesday as well as the Breakfast Club of Canopy Piloting on Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m. Come jump the Porter and Super Otter! See you at ASC!
