The first outdoor leaderboard this year was generated at the Shamrock Showdown in March, and the first meets of the NSL Network leagues will be next.
In fact, the Southern Skydiving League launched its 2017 season last weekend with five teams at a new location, Skydive Spaceland-Atlanta in Georgia.
New SSL Director Caitlin Rice said that it was the first time that the SSL has opened the league region into Georgia.
She added that Skydive Spaceland-Atlanta had their Birthday Boogie going on the same weekend: "There was a lot of additional activity going on at the DZ, including wonderful food, organizing, and raffles."

Former Dallas 350 member Scott Latinis was a player coach for the AA Class pickup team Free Mustache Rides, who exchanged blows round by round with the longest standing SSL team, Platinum 4.0.
Don Hurd brought a new Platinum lineup to the 2017 season opener, which is the beginning of the 4th year for his team.
Caitlin Price said that some thunderstorms interfered towards the end of the day, while the meet was still completed with 24 loads going up on Saturday after a couple of weather holds.
The next SSL meet is scheduled for June 17th at Skydive Alabama.
