Did you know that A/Beginner Class teams needed a jump-off to break their tie after six rounds? posted: Jun 19th, 2021 At the same time when Skydive Elsinore hosted the season opener of the Southern California Skydiving League and synchronized the event with other ones of the international NSL Network in the same way as it has been done for many years, Skydive Chicago held their newly introduced SDC Cloud Games, which applies the same format of event connection via the internet.
It was a different competition draw that the participating teams had for the Cloud Games, which created two different leaderboards with teams applying the two draws at several different locations. The Cloud Games turned out to be a combination... (more)

Did you know that NMP PCH HayaBusa travel to Prostejov for exit training? posted: Jun 16th, 2021 NMP PCH HayaBusa were back in full training swing after the long break due to the corona virus crisis, as the NSL News reported on April 9th.

Did you know that Jerry and the Jets were on the AAA top after Round 5? posted: Jun 15th, 2021 The Southern California Skydiving League launched the 2021 season once again in the month of June, and only dust devils kept the five teams to complete all six rounds at Skydive Elsinore last weekend.
Main Street Jambalaya had won last year's SCSL season opener, and almost exactly the same lineup lifted Elsinore's home team's meet average to 12.6 despite a challenging competition draw. The five completed rounds included three slot-switching blocks in three different sequences, and each round included at least two blocks. Only six random formations were drawn for the same five rounds.
Did you know that Germany's 4-way comeback happened at the Paranodon Cup? posted: Jun 14th, 2021 The annual Paranodon Cup in Illertissen was the outdoor restart competition in Germany. It was to be expected that the event would be smaller than usual, while a total number of eight teams still made it to the home of the Airbus teams.
Even Air-W from Switzerland made the trip once again and have not missed the Paranodon Cup since 2015. There was no event last year, due to the pandemic situation, and the Swiss team attended its 6th Paranodon Cup last weekend.
Air-W still have two original members (Beat Kaltenrieder, Frede Wilde) in the current lineup, who competed in the A Class competition... (more)
Did you know that Spaceland Inferno members continued in 4-way Open as individuals? posted: Jun 13th, 2021 The AA/Intermediate Class rules and dive pools had settled for good at the USPA Nationals 2002. The 16 blocks without any slot-switchers and all 16 random formations have created the ten sequences for the event in 2002 and until now.
Increasing the number of rounds from six to ten was the last move that was made for the 2002 championships. Teams in USPA's Intermediate Class completed only six rounds until 2001. Six rounds on 2-day meet weekends were also the standard for National Skydiving League events from the very beginning.
Juggernaut won the first 10-round meet in the new Intermediate... (more)
