ASC Forums now Online!

Atlanta Skydiving Center added forums this week to the revamped ASC web site. This will be a great place to get last minute news, discuss skydiving related topics or just have a little fun when the weather won't allow us to skydive! Just click on the forums link at the side of this page, register and then post about whatever you want to talk about.

The weather has sure tried to work against us this past week, but we've been able to skydive during the sun breaks or when the clouds were high enough. A big thanks to our pilots Henry, Shawn and Carl for helping the skydivers get in the air between passing clouds and storms! Nice job guys!

We had four 4-way teams out this weekend competing in the Georgia Skydiving League meet as well as training for Nationals. Inviscid, Airlock, Intrepid and Kenesis were all looking good!

Mike Carroll became the proud owner of an ASC rental rig that fit him perfectly. Mike purchased the Mirage container with Sabre2 230 main this week and jumped at Alabama Skydiving Center in Pell City on Saturday. He ended up with his first reserve ride of his skydiving career on his second jump with his new gear when he unstowed the toggles incorrectly. No panic from Mike, just a smooth cutaway and reserve deployment. It was save number 145 for Chuting Star Rigging Loft. Nice job on the reserve inspection/repack Chuck Owen!

ASC now has a removable swoop course set up in the main landing area thanks to Jim Vance, Tyler Lawson and Kenny Pugh. Foam noodles can be set up for North or South landings, or removed when not in use. The course helps our canopy swoopers practice for upcoming competitions and also serves as a good accuracy course for other jumpers.


And lastly, we are all looking forward to this holiday weekend at the CASA will be in town Friday through Monday. Come jump the tailgate! The boogie will include BirdMan jumps with Baxter Gillespie, Sunrise Rigging onsite with demo Wings containers, Freefly and RW organizing, Carbonezone food and a free open bar Saturday night.

See you all this weekend!
