Did you know that the Southern Skydiving League creeper competition was fun and confidential?
posted: Jul 26th, 2014 Creeper competitions have been around at event sites as long as 4-way teams and competitors have been using the training tools to prepare better for training and competition jumps.
Of course, they only take place when the weather does not allow any jumping from planes. Usually, it also takes a while until all hope for any competition round is gone, and all other activity options have been exhausted. Then, the announcement of a creeper competition often re-initiates energy and excitement levels.

posted: Jul 26th, 2014 Elsinore GT is still on top of the AAA Class leaderboard, which will change this weekend when new scores will be posted.

Following the USPA Nationals 2005, the EGT members of 2002 - 2005 just went different ways to pursue other interests.

posted: Jul 22nd, 2014 On July 19, Skydive Elsinore hosted the final meet of the season for the Southern California Skydiving League. Teams in attendance included Elsinore GT, Perris Liquid, Perris Franz, 3 Jars and a Head, and How Did John Get So Lucky.
The morning weather was unusual for a typical SoCal July meet day. High clouds with mysterious drops of precipitation were covering the Elsinore skies, allowing for teams to reach competition altitude, but not without some added elements. 3 Jars and a Head and How Did John Get So Lucky were captained by Tom and Tracy Bohm, respectively. The Bohms (Elsinore El Eminope... (more)
