2-way Relative Work Competition Sunday at Atlanta Skydiving Center

Atlanta Skydiving Center’s young jumpers will be showing off their skills on Sunday at the 2-way relative work skydiving competition. The 3 round competition will begin at 8 a.m. Brian and Allison of ASC 4-way team Inviscid will judge the meet.

The 2-way RW competition is geared toward United States Parachute Association A License holders, but all levels of guest teams are welcome. Each 2-way team will have coach that will also serve as videographer. Prizes from ASC and will be awarded to the top team.

Congratulations to our three recent Accelerated Free Fall student graduates! Matt Gazaway, Walter Hershey and Crystal Hudgins completed the student program last week. We look forward to seeing you three in the air over Atlanta Skydiving Center on a weekly basis. Nice job…now where’s that beer?

Wrong Way and Sara stopped by to jump over the weekend on their way to Eloy. English Dan was back in town as well.

Skydiver and weekend doughnut provider Wayne McComb finally got wet at the ASC pond after 6 months of landing nearby. His main and reserve were aired out, inspected and repacked this week by Chuting Star Rigging Loft. He’ll be back up in the air this weekend.

Late night activities on Saturday night centered on a game of dodge ball. Chuck Owen was the announcer, Tyler Lawson the videographer and Fast Eddie the line judge. Tony Hawk was the loser as his skydiving photo was knocked down (but unharmed). In first place was team Blowjoe, which included Anne, Henry, Vitaliy and Benny. Team Little Weenie, Ryan, Michael Blankinship and Jesse Watson, finished second. Michael B, even though he was a member of the losing team, was voted the Heinz ketchup MVP.

James “J-Rock” Massillo is back in the air after a 6-month layoff from skydiving. J-Rock made a recurrency jump with Mike to the G and lived up to his name…he rocked! It was like he never even took the time off. J-Rock has a brand new Mirage, PD Reserve, Cypres II and Safire II on order and will be back in the air with his own gear in February. Welcome back James!

For those of you who own Mirage containers, the company issued a service bulletin last week for the location of the Cypres cutter. At the same time, Chuting Star Rigging Loft has become a Mirage Authorized Service Center. All service bulletin work can be completed at your next scheduled reserve canopy inspection and repack. For all customers who purchased their Mirage through and have used Chuting Star for all of their rigging, the bulletin will be completed for free.

Lastly, make sure to check out the 2005 ASC events calendar. We’ve added a March event: United States Parachute Association Safety Weekend. The weekend is set for March 12 and 13. Lift tickets to 14,500 feet will be $15 all weekend for experienced jumpers with an in-date USPA membership card. Several safety seminars will be presented Saturday at sunset.

See you all this weekend for the 2-way RW competition!
