The NSL News just pointed out with yesterday's coverage of the NSL World Team Rankings 2019 that AZ Defiance was the busiest 4-way outdoor team throughout the 2019 season. AZ Windfall were actually right behind their regular 4-way opponents in Eloy, with seven 4-way outdoor meets last year.
AZ Windfall started the 2020 season even earlier than last year, when they missed the January meet. Beth Bryan, Jonathan Perl, John Scharrer and videographer Gordon Lindsey attended each of the team's seven 2019 meets, and they were back for the first meet of the ASL 2020 season, with Becky Thompson in the lineup for the first time.
AZ Defiance competed at the January meet last year, and they were back this year with the same lineup that concluded the 2019 season in October 2019. AZ Defiance was formed in 2015, and four of the original members (Cris Howard, Joe Howard, Paul Marstall, videographer John Lyman) are still in the current lineup.

They started to support YOUTH ON THEIR OWN, an organization in Tucson that is helping homeless teenagers stay in school and graduate from high school, then go to college afterward. Eliana Rodriguez had heard about the project on the radio and made the contact. Michelle Karamon said that they continue with the same effort this year:
"It seemed to be a good organization after looking into their website. Eventually we went to meet their director and see the facility, so we could decide if we wanted to keep supporting them this year, or look for something else. Everyone was extremely nice and the organization is very well run. We feel great about continuing to support them!"
She said that YOUTH ON THEIR OWN have 27 employees and about 100 volunteers who take food out to the local schools for students in the program. Eliana Rodriguez and Michelle Karamon also talked to the employees about visiting Skydive Arizona and possible making tandem jumps: "It would be really cool if they could."
