Inviscid 2004 Georgia Skydiving League Champions

ASC 4-way team Inviscid secured its first-ever Open Class Championship in the Georgia Skydiving League with an 11.3-point average over 10 rounds at this weekend's meet in Cedartown. Way to go! The team of Allison Yasitis, Brian Timberlake, Alex Jordaan and Craig Sellars with Randy Cooke on video will be heading to the U.S. Nationals in Perris Valley in October.

The final GSL meet of the season was held Saturday and Sunday at Atlanta Skydiving Center. Team GT Airlock took first place in the intermediate class followed by pickup team 5 Minute Call. GT Airlock was crowned GSL Intermediate Champion for 2004. GT Airlock, in the bright yellow suits, is Adam Chamely, Nate Fisher, Shane Migliore and Omar Mireles with Greg Harmon on video.

In addition to the Georgia Skydiving League meet, the 10 rounds of competition this weekend was part of the nationwide National Skydiving League Playoffs. Inviscid and GT Airlock qualified for the National Skydiving League Championship at Skyquest in November. ASC canopy swoopers Tyler Lawson and Kenny Pugh will be competing at Skyquest in the pond swooping event.

Tyler and Kenny, along with a few ASC staff members and several members of the 4-way teams put together an 11-way belly dive on Sunday before sunset EdValdo will be razzed for weeks for his aerobatics underneath the formation as he fell low on the dive and struggled to get back made for some cool video! :-)

Tyler, Kenny, Bruno Asmann and Mike Gruwell managed to get a little action across the pond this weekend at ASC. But Mike to the G gets the water award this weekend for his drenching on his first jump on Saturday morning and last jump on Sunday night.

We have a new skydiver in our midst as Josh Milliken graduated the ASC AFF student program over the weekend. Thanks for the beer! And we have two more skydivers, Linda and Steve, which passed level 6 and plan on graduating this upcoming weekend!

TJ Landgren made his first jumps back from his broken arm injury with several hop, pop and swoops. Welcome back TJ! And when not jumping, TJ has been taking photos and video of landings and giving all the ASC jumpers great feedback on improving landings. Thanks TJ!

Gunner Jeannette (a sports car racing driver in real life) celebrated his 100th skydive at ASC with a 3-way freefly dive with Vitali and Adam. Jeannette treated himself to a new G4 Mirage container, canopies and freefly suit at the end of the weekend. Gunner will be racing at the Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta Sept. 22-25. Good luck Gunner!

ASC welcomed several jumpers from Alabama on Sunday. Several jumpers made a road trip over to Cedartown from Pell City on Sunday to jump the Super Twin Otter at ASC. Recent Pell City AFF graduate Racheal decided on purchasing a Mirage G3 and Sabre2 150...and was jumping her rig all Sunday!

Sheena was out on Sunday recovering from her broken ankle and looking forward to getting back in the air soon. Meanwhile, Tami and Scotty Carbone returned from the boogie circuit this weekend. Welcome home! Everyone has missed you two crazy skydivers as well as the Carbonezone Cut-Away Cafe food!

And talk about cutaways...we had three this weekend as Chuting Star Rigging Loft racked up three saves. Mike Gruwell cutaway from slider hangup on Saturday, Adam cutaway from tension knots on Sunday followed by Woody who had a lineover. Chuck Owen added two saves to his list while Mike added one. Chutingstar now has more than 150 documented saves! All three skydivers had beautiful reserve deployments and soft landings Woohoo! Skydive!

Just as we finished up the ASC news for the week, Jordan Thomas Butler was born Monday morning at 2:45 a.m. Tammy and Ben are proud new parents! Congrats! Jordan weighs 9.1 ounces and is 21 inches long.

And finally, check out the ASC Calendar of Events. We have a $12.50 Lift Ticket Boogie scheduled in October. We've also set the date for the 8th annual Punkin' Chunkin' and "White Elephant" Christmas Party. Check out the calendar and forums for more info!
