Atlanta Skydiving Weekly News

Due to low clouds, cold weather and an upcoming swoop meet, Monday through Thursday at ASC was full of hop and pops. Rigger/Instructor Chuck Owen and freeflier Tyler Lawson headed to DeLand Thursday night for the weekend swoop meet. On Thursday the clouds broke open in the afternoon allowing the Twin Otter to fly.

Friday turned out to be a beautiful jumping day...especially for Geir Bjoran who graduated the AFF program that afternoon. Geir completed levels 5, 6 and 7 without a hitch and immediately supplied ASC jumpers with beer and rootbeer. Nice job Geir!

Clouds and rain rolled in for the weekend. We still managed to get four Twin Otter loads and two Cessna loads off Saturday morning. Woohoo! 4-way team Intrepid trained on Saturday and spent most of the day creeping and watching video under the watchful eye of coach Doug Glover. The team looked good in the little time it got in the air.

The Saturday night party ended up at a local bowling alley with about 25 ASC regulars. Fast Eddie, Vitali and Tatyana were some of the higher scorers. Thanks to Ben for the free food and beverages! Mike to the G was in rare form, although Nate was to blame for one bowling incident. :-)

And a big congrats to Tyler Lawson for his 6th place finish at the DeLand swoop meet! Who says a Nitron can't swoop? Well, he'll be ordering a Velocity soon enough.

Hope to see you all Wednesday for $15 jumps. And if the weather is good Saturday and Sunday, get out to ASC early for the $15 early bird jumps before 10 a.m. Bring your'll be chilly!
