Did You Know...

... that Jim Rees was judging at the Ranch while Mass Defiance competed in Raeford?

posted Jun 23rd, 2008 - The NSL News will begin with the follow up of the Paraclete XP Money Meet 2008 very soon, including a lot of meet videos.

In the meantime, last weekend's scores from several events at different locations in the USA and Europe are still coming in and are being added to the new leaderboard. The latest update came from the Blue Sky Ranch.

One judge of a new generation of USPA judges, which includes top and former competitors as Christy Frikken, Chris Farina, Steve Miller, was making his first meet experiences at the second RSL meet of the 2008 season.

AA Class team Vortex in action
RSL Director Robert Schuyler reported that event judge Jim Rees did a great job with the scoring: "All the teams learned a lot about how jumps are scored and what constitutes the different types of busts."

Jim Rees is a former member of Mass Defiance and has the meet experiences of a top competitor who almost broke the 20-average level with his team. He handed out a total of 26 point deductions last weekend. Robert Schuyler said that it was good having him on site to explain to the teams what will be looked for at the USPA Nationals.

Vortex works on an exit
His former team mates competed outdoor and indoor at the Paraclete XP Money Meet 2008 at the same time. They received their own penalties from Chief Judge Judy Celaya in Raeford and from Kirk Verner in the Paraclete XP windtunnel. Mass Defiance lost a total of seven points at the outdoor event and 18 points in the flying chamber.

Robert Schuyler reported for the RSL teams that Screaming Monkey Sex had a very good meet in the A Class competition and raised the team's average from a 2.7 to a 5.7 last weekend. He added that another Rookie Class team on site made a few jumps but had no video. The team will probably join the RSL meets later this season.

He also said that the Ranch had a Rookie Class 2-way competition on the previous weekend, which has definitely increased the interest in 4-way competition. An update will soon be posted at the Ranch website. Another Rookie Class 3-way event will follow on July 12th where the Ranch Fallout members will be coaching. Goal is to recruit additional Rookie Class lineups for the next RSL meet on July 19.
