Team One at Atlanta Skydiving Center

There's a new team in town, representing Cleveland, Tennessee at Atlanta Skydiving Center. It's a team of friends, skydivers, work associates and late night partiers. The personalities are one-of-a-kind...and the skydives are original. Atlanta Skydiving Center jumpers Sunman, Jack, Michael Blankinship and Ron Stamey have formed Team One.

Sunman debuted the team's compilation video last weekend, showing off recent jumps team members have made as well as other friends jumping at ASC. The team will be training and jumping on some weekdays and every weekend at ASC. Team One jump experience level ranges from hundreds of jumps (Sunman, Michael and Ron) to someone who just finished AFF just a couple of months ago, Jack. Team One member Ron Stamey made his 200th jump this past weekend with a four-way sitfly dive with Kenny Pugh on video. Team One is in the ASC HOUSE!

The winds were a bit high to jump much on Saturday, but we still managed several experienced jumper hop and pop loads as well as a few sunset load when the wind died down. It was a kite-flying extravaganza on Saturday in the ASC landing area. Sunday was beautiful and the Twin Otter was flying all day long!

We have two new skydivers working on their A licenses at ASC as Linda Chipko and Sheena Farr graduated the AFF program this past weekend. Way to go! And meanwhile, a belated pieing was laid upon Gunnar Jeannette for his 100th jump made the prior weekend. Many of the ASC staff and fun jumpers are making trips to Road Atlanta this week to see Gunnar race in the Petit Le Mans. Gunnar will be training and racing all week long. For more info, see the ASC Forums.

The Speed Star Tracking Dive is here! ASC jumpers have brought back the old school Speed Star thanks to Tyler Lawson and Mike Gruwell. Success has been frightenly limited as we've tried to go big with the size of the formations and differing skill levels. We've also added a little twist. Building the Speed Star is just the beginning. The goal is to get everyone on level at the star and then start a tracking dive together. Anyone interested in some Speed Star Tracking should see Tyler as we will attempt plenty more of the dives every weekend.

Lastly, don't forget to check out the new store next to manifest. Jim Vance and Brian Ward have been hard at work over the past few weeks setting up the store. It will be open for business everyday starting Friday. Come check out the latest stock of skydiving gear. We've added a large selection of T-Shirts to the new store.

See you all at the Breakfast Club of Canopy Piloting Thursday morning at sunrise! Early morning Otter Hop and Pops are $9 and only $15 to 14,500!
