The new week begins with new videos of the California Skydiving League's September meet in Perris. The complete Round 3 is now available on NSL-TV. Perris Fury's
competition jump with the fastest sequence of the competition (F,P,G,O,4) was already featured with the story on 17 September 2008
, which covered the team's comeback after Chris Farina's back injury earlier this year.
The NSL News will get back to Perris Fury's situation when Doug Park visits the NSL-TV studio tomorrow. The live interview will be a part of the preview of the USPA Nationals 2008. The NSL News mentioned earlier that new features are planned for the event coverage, and the interview with Doug Park will offer a glimpse of what's in the works.

Doug Park with the US 8-way team in France
The 4-way world champion of 2004 with DeLand Majik and Fastrax member of the past years has been competing in 8-way recently. He was a member of the US 8-way team that won the silver medals at the World Meet 2008
in France in August.
His 8-way team will be back in action in Eloy next week and take on Arizona Airspeed's 8-way lineup for a rematch of the 8-way battle at the USPA Nationals 2007 at Skydive Chicago. Tomorrow's interview will cover his own situation at the USPA Nationals 2008 and a preview of the 4-way competition, including Perris Fury's 2008 season.
Perris Jimani's September lineup
The sequence for Round 3 at the SCSL September meet was even faster for the AA Class in Perris. Block 4 at the end of the AAA Class sequence was cut off, and only four random formations were left for the four AA Class teams.
Perris Jimani took the best advantage of the fast sequence. Jim Earman's September lineup surprised the other three teams with a 17-pointer in Round 3, which outscored even R4 and Kaleidoscope by three points. It was the only round where the Perris team scored higher than the two winning teams that weekend, but the 17-pointer surely got some extra attention.

comments / feedback
It was also Jimani's record score of the 2008 season for a single round. Jimani completed 24 rounds in the four meets of the Southern California Skydiving League 2008 season. A 13-pointer in Round 4 of the May meet (J,H,D,9) was the highscore so far. The 17-pointer in September was like from another Jimani planet.
Enjoy the new videos. The NSL News will follow up with more news later.
