Another beautiful week at ASC!

It was another full week of skydiving at ASC! Thanks for coming out and jumping with the Atlanta Skydiving Center crew.

A special thanks is due to Wayne McComb for his weekend morning doughnuts! The ASC regulars are always thankful for a little sugar to get the morning going.

We have a new extreme canopy pilot in the making...Shannon "Swooper Chic" McQueary. Shannon made hop and pops on every other load throughout Saturday flying her brand new Sabre2 120. She says she was just working on her flare, but we all know she's the next "super swooper" in the making.

Congratulations to a good showing by our ASC swoopers at this weekend's meet in Florida. Kenny Pugh, Vitali T., Tyler Lawson and Mark Shimell all did well at the meet. Meanwhile, back at home in Cedartown, Michael Blankinship was honing his skills with a few picture perfect swoops over the ASC pond this weekend. Jim Vance and Nate Gilbert also joined in the pond action.

Master Rigger Mike Gruwell registered his 100th save this week due to Jim Vance's reserve ride with his brand-new Mirage. Jim was back in the air the same day thanks to a quick turnaround at Chuting Star Rigging Loft.

ASC 4-way team Kinesis trained on Saturday and Sunday. The team was preparing for Georgia Skydiving League Meet #2 set for May 29 at ASC. The 15 jumps were done under the watchful eye of Kim Glover, a member of the women's USA 4-way formation team Synchronicity.

And we can't end this week's news bits without mentioning Kevin Kaminski and his work at Alabama Skydiving Center in Pell City this weekend. Kevin had a full day taking up new skydivers on tandem jumps on Saturday. Nice job Kevin!

Don't forget that this weekend Nate Gilbert will be organizing Georgia state head down formation record attempts at ASC. Come support our head down flyers as they attempt to set a new head down record!

And for those who want a taste of BirdMan flying, Baxter Gillespie will have a selection of demo BirdMan wingsuits and will be providing First Wingsuit Instruction Training and Coaching. The cost is $60 plus two slots which includes first jump ground instruction, suit rental and in-air evaluation. You will need at least 200 jumps, a stable canopy that you are current on and a container with a BOC pouch.

See you all for $15 Wednesday!
