Did you know that indoor and outdoor world can live well together?
posted: Mar 12th, 2014 The Sun Path Products NSL News has mentioned earlier that a year of skydiving competition is not the same any longer. There used to be a winter season that consisted of hibernation and homework, possibly a training camp or two at a location that would allow skydiving at that time of the year.
The ambitious teams and competitors, who wanted to become world champions, had to move to those warm and sunny spots on the planet to train enough, and they did so. Any US 4way world champions were either located in Eloy or in DeLand. The French national teams had the Mediterranean area to keep the winter... (more)

Did you know that NSL-TV features the fastest round of the Paraclete XP Outdoor Championship 2014?
posted: Mar 8th, 2014 The main story of the Paraclete XP Outdoor Championship 2014 is a sad one. It is obvious that NMP-PCH Hayabusa is not on the leaderboard, at least not so far. There might be a chance that the Belgian national team could still get their numbers posted, but it would happen in an improvised and unofficial way. NMP-PCH Hayabusa had to withdraw on the meet days.
Tail Roy Janssen already had a hard time last weekend to make it though the ten rounds of the Paraclete... (more)
