Skydiving Center Plans Halloween Night Jumps to Honor
With the full moon on its way Halloween
weekend, Atlanta Skydiving Center jumpers
have expressed interest in making night jumps to remember
Nate Gilbert. Those interested in making night jumps the
last week or weekend of October should sign up at the drop
zone. More information on the night jumps can be found on
the Atlanta Skydiving Center Skydiver
Nate organized all of Atlanta Skydiving Center's
night jumps over the past few years and we have yet to make
night jumps since his accident. Atlanta Skydiving
Center jumper Ron Stamey says its time to remember
Nate for all his help in getting new jumpers into the night
air on a regular basis.
Norris earned her A License this past weekend. Norris, who
lives in Missouri, made several jumps at Atlanta
Skydiving Center during her AFF training. She returned
on Friday with more than 60 jumps and got to work on learning
to pack under Laura O'Dowd. On Saturday, she made three
jumps with Mike Gruwell and completed all of her A License
requirements! Nice job Cindi! She celebrated by ordering
a new Mirage, PD reserve and main canopy. We look forward
to seeing you again soon!
Inviscid made 19 training jumps this weekend as
the team had its last tune-up prior to the U.S.
Nationals. Jim Vance reported the team of Allison
Yasitis, Brian Timberlake, Alex Jordaan and Craig Sellars
with Randy Cooke on video, had a 29-point skydive to finish
Sunday! Atlanta Skydiving Center teams
Inviscid and 5-Minute Call will be competing
at Nationals in Perris Valley next week.
Information on their progress will be posted on the ASC
ASC skydiver/race car driver Gunnar Jeannette
placed 13th in his division at the Petit Le Mans
at Road Atlanta this past weekend. The
ASC crew had the TV tuned to the Speed channel
to watch Gunnar race on Saturday in-between jumps. A blown
tire slowed Gunnar down early in the race. Many of the ASC
staff made a trip to Road Atlanta to watch
Gunnar train last week...very cool stuff! Gunnar will be
racing close to our sister drop zone in Pell City at the
Barber Motorsports Park Oct. 6-10 just
east of Birmingham.
Go check Gunnar out if you get a chance!
Seaman was able to jump his brand new Mirage with his spanking-new
Bev Suit on Sunday. Beer! Meanwhile, Blythe Jordan (under
the supervision of Mike Gruwell) registered her first save
on Sunday as instructor Chuck Owen had a beautiful deployment
of his reserve canopy. Nice job Blythe!
It looks like Hurricane Jeanne will be
short-lived in the Atlanta area,so come jump on $15 Wednesday
at Atlanta Skydiving Center out of the
Super Twin Otter...and don't forget about the Breakfast
Club of Canopy Piloting on Thursday morning. Last Thursday
we made our first jump at sunrise!
keep Oct. 23 and 24 marked as an Atlanta Skydiving
Center jumping weekend, as it will be $12.50 lift
tickets on Saturday and Sunday out of the Twin Otter. TJ
Landgren will be coaching and organizing along with Mike
Gruwell. PD Demos will be available and it looks like Tyler
Lawson will be putting on a swoop competition. Oh yeah,
baby...ASC is where it's at!
