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.

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)

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:

Did you know that bad weather interfered with SDC Rhythm XP's visit at the SCSL season opener?
posted: May 12th, 2014 The Sun Path Products NSL News reported on 25 March 2014 that SDC Rhythm XP was planning to go west for the Southern California Skydiving League season opener at Perris Skydiving.
The event actually took place, even though the weather forecast was not good at all, and the weather situation eventually did not turn not much different than the forecast. However, a handful of teams tried to beat the weather and completed up to two rounds on the SCSL meet weekend.
Three of the four Rhythm members had slots as player coaches, and... (more)
Did you know that Dubai Asaar's building year continues?
posted: May 10th, 2014 The Sun Path Products NSL News explained with the story on 12 February 2014 how the 2014 season would be a building year for the Formation Skydiving competition delegation from Dubai, guided by Eliana Rodriguez and Craig Girard.
Eliana Rodriguez said that the original plans for the 2014 season had to be changed when it became clear that two members of the 8way lineup would not come back this year. That added to Khalid Abduljalil's broken arm that he has been recovering from.
However, Eliana Rodriguez and Craig Girard followed... (more)
