Did you know that 1814 celebrated independence from Denmark in a special way?
posted: May 19th, 2014 Last weekend's leaderboard has grown significantly with the new scores from the annual DFU Cup in Denmark. The Danish teams completed ten rounds and took the 1st places in the two categories (AAA - A) where they posted scores last weekend.
The two Danish national teams, A-Team VAF Warriors and B-Team Aerodyne Steam, finished with significantly increased meet averages, compared to their performances at the Paraclete XP Outdoor Championship 2014. In fact, the 14.9 average was a new record average for the VAF Warriors,... (more)
Did you know that DeLand 3D and DeLand Aurai competed for the first time?
posted: May 18th, 2014 The teams of the Florida Skydiving League were much luckier with the weather this weekend, while it was the other way around in the Czech Republic. The meet in Pribram was canceled due to bad weather, and the Czech teams will have to wait until mid June for the next outdoor competition.
In the meantime, the Skydive Arena has taken back the Indoor Cloud League top spot for May. Jan Klapka replaced the unfortunate 16-pointer of his Bad Boys with a 20-pointer that the HF Chicks scored earlier for the AA Class sequence. The additional four points... (more)
Did you know that three XXXXO members had a reunion at the NCSL season opener?
posted: May 16th, 2014 The meet weekend of April 26 was the 2014 season opener for both the Northern and Southern California Skydiving League. It was also the first time this year that the synchronized competition draw was applied at different locations, as it has become a popular procedure over the years.
It was coincidence that both Californian leagues competed on the same weekend, as the meets are scheduled separately and independently by each participating league. Meet locations were Lodi and Perris, over 400 miles away from each other, and the weather was very different at both places.
The teams in Perris... (more)
Did you know that the HF Chicks have blown through four Indoor Cloud League categories like a hurricane?
posted: May 16th, 2014 It did not take too long until the 4way teams in the Czech Republic responded to Florida's first Indoor Cloud League scores from this week's Tunnel Kicker at iFLY Orlando. In fact, both groups were performing the May sequences almost simultaneously at the two different locations.
Czech Republic and Florida Skydiving League have even more in common this week. The 4way teams will follow up on the coming weekend with the next outdoor meet. Both hosts will use the same competition draw, just as the sequences for the Indoor Cloud League are synchronized... (more)
Did you know that each of the six FSL lineups posted scores for the Indoor Cloud League night at iFLY Orlando?
posted: May 14th, 2014 April was the first month this year where indoor and outdoor scores were supposed to be posted in turns at the meets in Florida. FSL teams and competitors collected Indoor Cloud League points for iFLY Orlando in April, however, the outdoor season opener was completely weathered out.
This month, the indoor/outdoor combination gets the next opportunity, and the first part was successfully completed last night at iFLY Orlando. The Florida Skydiving League now follows up with the next attempt of getting 4way teams in and out of the jump planes... (more)
Did you know that Carolina Dynamic launched a promising 2014 season despite bad weather?
posted: May 13th, 2014 The season opener of the Southern California Skydiving League was seriously bothered by bad weather, as the Sun Path Products NSL News reported yesterday.
The Carolina Skydiving League followed up a week later and was not much luckier. Carolina Turbo XP hosted the meet on their home turf at Skydive Carolina in Chester, and Andrew Happick had similar weather news as Christy Frikken reported from Perris:
"Saturday started with a slight weather delay due to low clouds. We... (more)
