Did you know that Christy Frikken and Sarah Smith turned an old table last weekend?
posted: Jun 15th, 2015 The teams from California treated each other very friendly last weekend. They kindly staid away from each other and avoided any confrontation in all four competition categories.
The Northern California Skydiving League competed only in the A and Rookie Class, while the teams of the Southern California Skydiving League filled the leaderboard with scores in the AAA and AA Class.
Yvonne "Yo" Owyeong reported a successful event from Perris: "We had a great Saturday and the weather was awesome. Everything went smoothly, the clouds broke early, and it was a beautiful day, light winds and all smiles.... (more)
Did you know that Elsinore GT wants both titles?
posted: Jul 26th, 2014 Elsinore GT is still on top of the AAA Class leaderboard, which will change this weekend when new scores will be posted. The Sun Pat Products NSL News mentioned on 21 July 2014 that the team's reunion will get special attention soon. Sydney Williams and USPA/SCSL judge Steve Miller now provided the needed information, and it seems like the rumor of Elsinore GT’s demise has been greatly exaggerated. Following the USPA Nationals 2005, the EGT members of 2002 - 2005 just went different ways to pursue other interests.

The morning weather was unusual for a typical SoCal July meet day. High clouds with mysterious drops of precipitation were covering the Elsinore skies, allowing for teams to reach competition altitude, but not without some added elements. 3 Jars and a Head and How Did John Get So Lucky were captained by Tom and Tracy Bohm, respectively. The Bohms (Elsinore El Eminope... (more)
Did you know that 4-way world champion Josh Hall and Yvonne "Yo" Owyeong have big plans for Southern California?
posted: Jul 3rd, 2014 This year's great comeback success of the Northern California Skydiving League must have been inspiring for competitors of the neighboring Southern California Skydiving League, which was launched even earlier than the original NCSL.
In fact, it was the Southwest Skydiving League, including Arizona and California, that became the first league in the NSL Network on the west coast in 2000. Arizona and California eventually separated and formed their own leagues due to the long travel distances. California also finally split up into the northern and the southern leagues.
