The second meet of the Georgia Skydiving League 2005 season was held Saturday, May 28, at Skydive Atlanta in Thomaston, GA. First of all, the GSL would like to extend a big thanks to Skydive Atlanta and Skydive Monroe for being able to work with the GSL and be willing to switch meet locations on short notice. Also, many thanks to the competitors for helping to spread the word of the change and for coming down to SDA on such short notice!
GSL Meet 2 saw a great turnout with six teams showing up to compete. Unfortunately, due to two fifteen-minute weather holds and eventual rain at 7 pm, we were only able to complete four rounds for the AAA/Open Class and three rounds for the A Class of the traditional six rounds. But the teams jumped hard throughout the day and put up some impressive scores.
Three teams competed in the A Class. 4-Play, a beginning team comprised of local jumpers from various dropzones, worked hard and finished the meet with a 0.7 average over three rounds and a bronze medal. Last Minute, comprised of Anthony Stone, Bob Van Kampen, Jeff Myers, and Matt Whitcomb, jumped well and finished in second place with a 5.3 average over three rounds.
Finally, Club Stiletto.com, a Georgia Tech team comprised of two former GT Fusion members (2004 Collegiates 4-Way silver medalists) and two GT Propel (2004 Collegiates 2-Way silver medalists) members, performed very well and finished in first place with an impressive 7.0 over three rounds.
