Did you know that Slovenia will have two teams at the Indoor World Meet in Prague?
posted: Sep 26th, 2015 Slovenia is one of the relatively young countries in Eastern Europe, which became independent nations when the Russian Empire downsized in the 80s and 90s. Slovenia was actually a part of Yugoslavia until 1991 and joined the European Union in 2004.
It was the same year when Croatia hosted the World Meet 2004 in Rijeka. Croatia was also a part of Yugoslavia and split in 1991. A 4-way team from Slovenia competed at a World Championship of Formation Skydiving for the first time in Spain 2001, followed up in 2003 and then came back a year later to the neighboring country.
Then came a long break... (more)
Did you know that Kewara's comeback could have been even more successful in Teuge?
posted: Sep 25th, 2015 The Sun Path Products NSL News goes back to an earlier event with a topic that was not covered yet. Joey Jones reported from the Italian Nationals 2015 on September 1st, and one team caught not only his attention:
"With one round tomorrow, the medal places seem all wrapped up although Kewara is only three points out of 3rd place and seems to have a great meet, despite being out of the game for so long. Well done, girls, or in my best Italian: Brave Fragoline..."
Kewara turned it around in the last round and won the Italian bronze medals with the same meet average (14.8) that the team had... (more)
Did you know that Final Fire is Austria's first team in the world's Top 6 since the introduction of semifinals and finals?
posted: Sep 24th, 2015 The aftermath of the FAI World Cup 2015 continues with the meet videos of the national 4-way team from Austria, Final Fire.
The scores in Teuge were not the team's record numbers, even though a 17+ average sounds quite impressive coming from a small country like Austria. Final Fire had posted an 18.8 average after ten rounds with the same lineup at last year's national championships and followed up with 18.4 at the Austrian Nationals 2015. The 18.8 average of 2014 is the highest 10-round average by a 4-way team from Austria.
The 17.1 average at the World Cup 2015 was not a surprise for Thomas... (more)
Did you know that the DeLand Bees had to pull out after Round 1?
posted: Sep 23rd, 2015 Last weekend's leaderboard was supposed to be larger, as the Northwest Skydiving League had scheduled the last meet of the 2015 season for the same date as the Florida Skydiving League's September meet. NWSL Director Deb Correia had bad luck with the weather at the end of the 2015 season: "The NWSL was weathered out all weekend with low clouds on Saturday and winds in the 30s on Sunday."
She still used the opportunity to reward some of the NWSL teams with medals and prizes on Sunday morning. The 2015 winners in each category received 10-minute flight certificates from iFLY Seattle, and Sun Path... (more)
Did you know that NSL-TV introduces the new French national 4-way Open Class team?
posted: Sep 22nd, 2015 The Sun Path Products NSL News story on September 15th included the mixed leaderboard between the best 4-way Open Class teams at the FAI World Cup 2015 and the French national team in 4-way Women, the French Girls.
The mixed leaderboard became a regular feature of the Sun Path Products NSL News at the major international events ever since Aerokart Deep Blue came dangerously close to the medal level in the 4-way Open Class competition.
This year in Teuge, the French Girls finished in 4th place on the mixed leaderboard, four points behind the bronze medal position (VR4 France) and six points... (more)
Did you know that Dallas 350 and Spaceland Lite had their final test at the Dallas Super Cup?
posted: Sep 21st, 2015 The overall leaderboard of the September 12th weekend brought together teams from three different events in Texas (Dallas), Northern (Skydance) and Southern California (Perris) in different ways.
