Skydiving Center team
Mr. Pink had two of its members tie the knot over the weekend.
Jennifer Gruwell married Glen Hauenstein at a ceremony in
Powder Springs. A NOTAM was filed for a jump into the wedding,
but logistics didn’t work out for the jump. Jen (KidPink)
and Glen (Mr. Purple) have not only jumped together on the
Mr. Pink 4-way team over the past several years, but also
work together at Eaton Academy. Several skydivers were at
the wedding including brother Mike Gruwell
(Mr. Silver), Bobby May (Mr. Jade), Kurt Gaebel (Papa Pink)
and Robert Anderson (Mr. Black). The pink and purple colors
showed a clear Mr. Pink theme at the wedding. The newlywed
couple headed to St. Lucia for their honeymoon
with plans of scuba diving and relaxation.
While the team had a one-year hiatus this season due to
personal commitments, expect to see the team jumping at
ASC starting early next year. Congratulations to
the Glen and Jen Hauenstein! Beer!
4-way team Georgia Tech Airlock was out
training at ASC Saturday and Sunday. The
team is preparing for this year’s collegiate competition.
Thanks to Nick Moulson, the Skydivegear.com
store now is staffed full-time throughout the weekend. Nick
was helping skydivers out with everything from batteries
to T-Shirts to Gatorz to log books. We just received a shipment
of Holiday Para-Pets n time for the
Christmas season. Come check out the cute holiday
skydiving gift ideas
hanging inside the store.
And finally, a big thanks to the newest Atlanta
staff member Justin Thorton who helped take up several
tandem students on their first
jump Saturday and Sunday! Expect to see Justin out on
a regular basis at ASC in the future. Justin
is not only a tandem instructor and swoop competitor, but
a Mirage representative.
you all this weekend! And if you get a day off this week,
the Super Twin Otter is flying all week long as always!
