"Congratulations Teams! The NCSL's Meet # 2 was an awesome success yesterday at the Parachute Center, with everyone having fun while completing their scheduled rounds of the draw. We had 9 teams come out and participate, five Rookie teams and four AA teams.
A few of the Rookie teams were pick-up teams that were put together this last week and it's always nice to see that work out where everyone gets a chance to experience some 4-way. We hope to see more folks wanting to learn 4-way and get involved in the NCSL."

Our meet judge Dennis Worden sequestered himself all day in the team room, judging each and every round so carefully. Everyone was working together to make the meet be the success that it was and to have such a good time! The next outdoor Meet is on August 13th at SkyDance! Between then and now, you can also join the NCSL at its 3-way tunnel scrambles, 4-way tunnel kickers and FS coaching at both iFLY Sacramento and iFLY SFBay."
Lori Connor also provided additional information of a special team situation. Rookie Class team Subterminal has a family lineup this year, after Jerry Sharp changed last year's Team Jerry name and came back with a new roster, including his wife and son.

She remembered that all the "Tree People" at the Lodi DZ (they hang out under these big trees at the DZ: The Sharps, Heberts, Ellis families) started having children at the same time: "Something was in the water..." Rookie Class team X-Men is another team with more tree people and their children: Ray Hebert, Russ Hebert, Clynt Hebert.
Cyndi and Jerry Sharp jumped regularly and brought their kids to the DZ, as well. Eventually, Jersyn Sharp, Ben Ellis and Clynton Hebert all did AFF together last year and now jump regularly at Lodi, while Cyndi Sharp came back after a 20-year break. It wasn't until her son Jersyn did his AFF last year that Cyndi started jumping again. The NCSL meet last Saturday was the first time in over 20 years that Cyndi did four jumps in one day.
