Did you know that the NPSL Rookie Class teams had reasons to celebrate?
posted: Aug 1st, 2013 Last weekend's leaderboard of the Northern Plains Skydiving League could have been the one of the season opener in May. The attending teams were identical and copied their standings with exactly the same outcome.
Some things were different though. Nick Grillet had prepared the NPSL competitors for the May meet, while Robert Chromy made the trip to Skydive Twin Cities last weekend. There were also some changes in the lineups, and last not least the scores were different, as well - higher.
Four of the five teams scored higher than in May. AAA Class team Fourcast had Lisa Schinnick in the lineup... (more)

The Sun Path Products NSL News reported earlier that Texas won all three categories (AAA - AA - Rookie) in which teams had signed up for at the meet in Speaceland.
