Did You Know...

... that Bardagi has the lead until Midway Battle scores come in?

   
    Bardagi at the International Bunny Meet in April
posted Jun 11th, 2011 - It was 5:30 PM at Skydive Chicago when the three AAA Class teams heard their 20-minute call for Round 1. The scores from the United Kingdom and Sweden have been coming in all day long, even though the weather was not perfect everywhere. The Midway Battle was obviously suffering the most of all meets this weekend. However, more scores will probably be added later.

The teams in Europe have been done for a while for today, as they are five to six hours ahead of the US teams. Two of the three Swedish teams are not knew to the NSL News audience. Bardagi is the national 4-way team that competed together with CADO at the International Bunny Meet in April in DeLand. Fire is a new lineup in the female 4-way category. Bardagi has the lead on the overall leaderboard in the AAA Class after five rounds and until Arizona Airspeed and SDC Rhythm XP will post their scores.

The 4-way momentum continues in the United Kingdom. 21 teams are competing in all four competition classes, and there are good races all across the leaderboard. Most of the teams attend their second outdoor meet this year, and several also competed at the World Challenge 2011.

Following the meet on-line from DeLand: Katie Woods, here with Christy Frikken    
The British weather did not allow the completion of all six rounds, and the teams will come back on Sunday morning. There were several weather holds in Langar too, but the teams did not have to wait all day long to get in the air, as it happened in Ottawa. Local restrictions in Langar tomorrow morning will bring a 10:00 AM starting time for the UK teams.

National team Satori is not competing itself, however, current and former Satori members are still actively involved at this UKSL meet. Center Outside Julia Foxwell is helping all teams with engineering and coaching, together with former Satori member Liz Matthews who won silver medals with Team Bodyflight in the female 4-way category at the World Championship of Formation Skydiving 2010.

Another former member Satori member follows this weekend's competition on-line from DeLand. Katie Woods has been coaching several of the British teams, and she was excited to see that her teams were doing well. She is still on the team photo of the current leader in the AA Class, Eclipse. She also said that she was happy with the Cookie Monsters' performance. Her brother competes with Gnomad, a pickup team with no training, and she liked the 12-pointer highscore in Round 3. She will try to find out for the NSL News what happened in the other rounds. A re-jump for Round 1 may at least explain the current 0 on the leaderboard.
