The Northern California Skydiving League returned to Skydance Skydiving for its fourth meet of the 2014 outdoor season. Seven teams came out to jump on a beautiful and very warm summer day in Davis, CA.
|| Trying to keep cool: Meet coach Samer Haija
The weather was perfect, and the teams got to jumping as early as possible to beat the heat. Meet coach Samer Haija stayed cool on the ground helping teams engineer and dirt dive, while judge Sharon Hawkins enjoyed the comfort of the air-conditioned judging station.
The Rookie class had three teams, including NCSL regulars Last Minute, who competed with substitute Brian Naiman last weekend, and two new teams: Maki’s Sled Dogs and Windmill Factory. Last Minute’s competition experience led them to the top of the NCSL Rookie Class leaderboard for the fourth straight meet, finishing with a 5.5 average over four rounds. Maki’s Sled Dogs, helped out by veteran skydiver Monty Stephens, put up a consistent effort, earning at least one point in each round for a 1.8 average. The other new team, Windmill Factory, took home the bronze medals.
