2011 winner: DeLand Shmeland
posted Jan 19th, 2013 -
The new leaderboard was set a few days before the start of the meet, and it comes once again from in indoor competition. The competition draw has not been posted either at this point in time, and it has a good reason.
Ben Liston, member of the unofficial US amateur champion team DNR, is hosting his annual SV New Hampshire 2013 this weekend. 33 teams are registered, and they all have to fly this morning to set the air speed for the competition rounds later today. The competition draw will be posted as soon as the practice sessions have been completed.
The NSL News is in Manchester for the next live event coverage, which features a very interesting competition in the AAA/Open Class.
Back in 2013: James "Malibu" Klinge - Sally Hathaway
DeLand Shmeland is the defending champion of the previous event in December 2011. Mass Defiance, who still owned the unofficial amateur record average in the USA by then, was the main opponent. Shmeland was the unofficial US amateur champion of 2010 and had pursued and missed (18.1) the Mass Defiance record average (19.2) at the USPA Nationals.
Ari Perelman, Rodney Cruce, Sally Hathaway and James "Malibu" Klinge are the defending New Hampshire champions and are back with exactly the same lineup. Mass Defiance competed with Ben Liston, Brian Stephens, John Silva and Scotty Latinis in December 2011. The same three former Mass Defiance team mates (Ben Liston, Brian Stephens, John Silva) are back and have Nick Grillet in the lineup this time and will compete under the team name Minimal Compliance this time.
The NSL News will introduce other lineups and competitors later on.
