National Skydiving League Playoffs this Weekend at Atlanta Skydiving Center
Skydiving League 4-way competitors will be vying for a spot
at the National Skydiving League Championship during this
weekend's NSL playoffs at ASC. This is the final meet of
the season for the Georgia Skydiving League as local teams
are not only looking for an end-of-the-year medal from the
GSL, but are preparing for the U.S. Nationals and National
Skydiving League Championships.
The final GSL Meet/NSL Playoffs will begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday morning at Atlanta Skydiving Center. The first day will be 4 to 6 rounds of competition for the GSL standings. Sunday will be used to complete the 10-round meet and determine the final NSL Playoffs standings.
While most of the teams have competed all year with the GSL, new teams are encouraged. The minimum requirement is a USPA A License. You must have four skydivers and a cameraman. Cost for the meet per person includes a $20 GSL registration fee and $19 per jump. The camera slot for each jump is free. Come give your best shot at 4-way relative work or cheer on your favorite team! For more information, see the ASC Skydiver Forums.
was busy this weekend as the CASA flew into town on Friday.
Hurricane Frances stayed far enough away for three great
days of CASA jumps over ASC! 8-way team Kinetic Energy and
40-way team GT Airlock were training for upcoming meets
over the weekend.
Alabamians Wes and Maria were out jumping over the weekend as Maria was trying out her brand new jumpsuit. Dan Richardson was working on his freefly skills and is waiting patiently for his Sabre2 170 to arrive so he can ditch his old Hornet 190. Nick Carter made his first jumps since graduating the student AFF program last weekend...and definitely owes beer for the CASA jumps!
Katie, Kenny, Jessica, Michael, SunMan, Tyler and Anne returned
from Richmond this week with some great footage of Vitali
swooping a tent and tearing his Crossfire...oops. This was
manifestor Anne's one weekend off for the year...so we're
looking forward to having her back Saturday! A big thanks
to Lisa, Kelly and Amanda for their stellar job behind manifest
during the busy ASC Boogie weekend without Anne.
gear sales store, Skydivegear.com, is moving and expanding!
There is a storefront being built inside ASC's main building
next to manifest. Jim Vance has already added a display
case, baskets and wall hangings. A window will be added
soon and then inventory will be moved in. Jim and Mike hope
to have the downstairs store front up and running by the
end of the month. Anyone interested in working in the store
should see Jim.
See you all for the Breakfast Club of Canopy Piloting Thursday morning at 8 a.m.! And the Super Twin Otter is back from Chicago...woohoo! We'll be flying it all week/weekend long.
