Family of Skydivers
Jack Barnes, who recently finished his quest to jump in all 50 states, got a chance to do a special jump on Sunday. Jack and his grandson, William Respess, made their first jumps together. Recently, William finished AFF and is working on his A-license requirements. He finished his 25th jump on Sunday. What a great way to spend a Sunday, jumping with dear old grand dad.
Ranch Pond Swoop Meet
After a week of beautiful weather in New York, Saturday and Sunday gave way to clouds, rain, and wind. Saturday, the competitors of the Bill Ottley Pond Swoop Nationals were able to squeak in two rounds of carve before night fell upon the valley. Jeffro Provenzano won the two rounds taking home
$1000. ASC’s own, Jesse Watson took 4th in the event, while Tyler Lawson took 9th.
Sunday, weather continued to plague the competition. At one point, it looked as though the event would not be finished. Then, in mid-afternoon, the weather let up and the competition was on again. The competitors finished the last four rounds. Jeff Provenzano took the meet winning carving in line and freestyle. Jeffro pulled his new signature move, The Miracle Man, to win the freestyle round.
Cardoza celebrated his unemployment by graduating AFF on Saturday. He joined Parker Jorgensen and Greg Kurtz who also graduated this week. Congrats to all. Now, where’s the beer?
