Did you know that NADS won the Coach's Choice Award of the Midwest Skydiving League?
posted: Jul 8th, 2013 Skydive Chicago held its first MWSL meet of the 2013 season on June 22, run by this year’s new MWSL director JaNette Lefkowitz and coached by Mikhail Markine, both from SDC Rhythm XP. The event was especially noteworthy since SDC is the location of the USPA Nationals later this year.
With what appears to be the biggest turnout in MWSL history, ten teams took advantage of the opportunity to get a preview of what the big meet will be like. While the official meet was six rounds, three of the teams continued to complete all ten, and a number of them exited from 10,500 feet to simulate the national... (more)
Did you know that you may call it sandbagging next year?
posted: Jul 7th, 2013 The latest contribution of the Sun Path Products NSL News for Blue Skies Mag was published last week in the summer edition and written shortly after the World Challenge 2013 where 77 teams set a new record for participation at the annual indoor competition.

Did you know that Sinner G contributed heavily to the Northwest scores for the Indoor Cloud League?
posted: Jul 6th, 2013 The Indoor Cloud League competition for the month of June is over, and Florida at iFLY Orlando won the 4th time in the six months so far this year.
It was a very close call though. Deb Correia's Northwest group at iFLY Seattle could have matched the FL score or outscored it without missing the points for the AAA Class. Florida was 17 points ahead with scores for all six categories, while the Northwest did not have a AAA Class lineup available last month. A 17-pointer was surely not out of reach, as the other AAA Class scores from SkyVenture... (more)

Did you know that Spaceland Lite launched the 2013 season with a new team record average?
posted: Jul 3rd, 2013 The 4way teams from Texas were the dominating factor on last weekend's overall leaderboard this time.
