The Casa and Team One Kick off the Labor Day Weekend at Atlanta Skydiving Center
Monday, September 19, 2005
The Casa and Team One helped kick Labor Day weekend up a notch at Atlanta Skydiving Center.
The Casa was here from Saturday through Monday, offering many jumpers their first tailgate experience.
Meanwhile, Team One was busy spreading the good vibe via great organizing and tube and raft dives.
Congratulations to Jack Barnes who made his 1,500 skydive out of the Casa ญญ-- can you believe he is even still alive?
And, still on his quest to make a jump in every state, he is getting very close. Also, congrats ring out for
Ryan Bahnsen who is graduating from the AFF program. He is definitely already a true-blue, skydiving junkie.
Last weekend, Atlanta Skydiving Center was well represented at USPA Nationals. Kenny Pugh snatched 10th place in
the canopy piloting division, and Chuck Owen was ranked number 12! You guys rock! Our 4-way teams also did us proud.
Inviscid took 5th place in the advanced division and Airlock placed an impressive 9th out of 43 teams in the intermediate. Way to go!
Two of our favorite skydiving chics were celebrating big-time last weekend. Jessica Edgington made her 1,000th skydive.
Jessica (pictured left), a long time packer and manifestor at Atlanta Skydiving Center, has left those jobs to morph into a video diva.
And the hardest working packer we've ever met, Kelsey Brennen, completed her AFF Level 7. Way to go, Kelsey!
A big welcome back goes to Ben Blake who returned from New Orleans where he was working with CNN. Be sure to check out
CNN for the Katrina pieces he did. He witnessed a lot of tragedy, but you just can't yank the skydiver out of Ben.
Beads and all, he was one of the last people partying on Bourbon Street before Katrina hit!
Also, welcome to Damian from Canada. He is here for a month and staying at the Atlanta Skydiving Center.
And we were also honored to have Vicki McGugian and Brian M's sister from Canada hang out with us last weekend.
This week, the airport's runway is being resurfaced. It's expected to be completed before the weekend; however,
to avoid any inconvenience, be sure to call manifest before coming out
