Did you know that skydive Suffolk is back hosting meets for the Virginia Parachute Council?
posted: Aug 5th, 2013 It was in August 2006 when the Virginia Parachute Council held a 4way competition the last time at Skydive Suffolk. DC3 (Christine Bruchac, Christi Meyer, Chris Halsa, Dave Owens, with Tres Waugh on camera) competed with a local lineup that consisted of Jim Burley, John Carlson, Eddie Heady, Mary Miller and Pete Schwartz on camera.
VPC Director Elizabeth Kang now reported that her 4way competitors met again at the same place on the July 27 weekend - seven years later. It was a new duel, this time between Safety Third and the Sky Godlings. Only one competitor attended both meets in 2006 and 2013.
Did you know that two teams braved heat and humidity in Virginia?
posted: Jul 10th, 2013 The Virginia Parachute Council held the first competition of the 2013 season at Skydive Orange, with two home teams attending the meet. VPC Director Elizabeth Kang reported that an additional team from Skydive Suffolk had to cancel at the last minute when a team member could not make the trip to Orange.
Moulin Orange is an Orange based group of girls who are trying to practice 4way on a semi-regular basis. The usual team members are Erin Kruth, the the most experienced 4way competitor in the team, plus Lucie Low, Abby Fistler and Mel Bostwick who have 100 or less jumps each.
