Did You Know...

... that Southern California turns from skills camps to competition in May?

Only yoga sessions at the skills camp in February
posted Apr 15th, 2015 - The Sun Path Products NSL News reported on 3 July 2014 that Josh Hall and Yvonne "Yo" Owyeong have big plans for Southern California. They followed up on their plans with several activities, which have been preparing the SCSL 4-way community for the 2015 outdoor competition season.

The update on 13 January 2015 covered the first one of a series of skills camps that Josh Hall and Yvonne Owyeong had scheduled for the same purpose. The first skills camp was hosted by Skydive Elsinore, and Skydive Perris Valley had its turn in February.

The third SCSL skills camp in San Diego was weathered out, as Yvonne Owyeong reported by then: "It was a beautiful hot day at Skydive San Diego, unfortunately the winds did not cooperate and we were not able to jump this time. In hopes that the winds would change, the participants dirt dived the first jump, and team Airscrew even held a personal yoga session. Josh talked about the history of the SCSL and showed an awesome video of 4-way Randoms and Blocks. He also talked about his own personal progression of how he got into 4-way."

Last weekend, Tsunami Skydivers hosted the last skills camp before the start of the SCSL competition season. Yvonne Owyeong said that she had an even better turnout than expected: "The weather was beautiful this time. We'd like to give a very special thanks to John Legge and Itai Manor for flying back to back video. Also thank you to Celeste Campo for coaching!"

Two AA Class lineups participated in the camp, while two more teams prepared themselves for the A and Rookie Class dive pools. AA Class team Airscrew (Carl Schwenk, Zack Winoker, Doug Pinkham, Brian Hua, John Legge on camera) got in the air this time after conducting only a yoga session in San Diego.

The second AA Class lineup consisted of Sean Simms, Randy Beers, Marie Winther, Tickle and Itai Manor on camera, with Yvonne Owyeong filling in later.

Arizona Airspeed's 4-way world champion of 2012, Josh Hall, was guiding the A Class lineup (Bryan Truesch, Max Lyubimov, John Keram, with John Legge on camera) through the skills camp, while Celeste Campo was the player coach for the Rookie Class lineup with Anirudh Narasimhan, Mark McGregor and Mike Fuller.

Josh Hall and Yvonne Owyeong now encourage all teams and competitors to follow up on the skills camps and come back together for the first outdoor competition on May 9th in Elsinore: "Our next event is a competition, so get your team together and join us at Elsinore on Saturday, May 9th. If you don't have a team, we'll pair you up!!"

Josh Hall and Sarah Smith, world champion in 4-way Women in 2008, will be the event coaches in Elsinore. Three other leagues (Northern California, Southern, Virginia) have scheduled their season openers on the same weekend.
