2-way Relative Work Competition Sunday at Atlanta Skydiving Center
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 Skydivegear.com
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.
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
“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 Skydivegear.com
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!
