He launched the 2020 season significantly later than usual, and the participation was still only slightly lower. He adjusted the schedule when the implications of the pandemic became obvious and started with the Spaceland San Marcos Showdown in August. He followed up with the Texas part of the Skydiving Nationals 2.0 a month later and concluded the TSL 2020 season with the Spaceland Dallas Super Cup last month.
Scott Latinis provided more details from the last TSL competition at Skydive Spaceland Dallas: "The final meet of the 2020 Texas Skydiving League season was the Super Cup on October 10th at Spaceland Dallas. The Dallas Super Cup is one of the longest running FS competitions in the country, running annually since 1994.
"The unique aspect of the Super Cup is that it not only has several categories for FS 4-way teams, it also has a FS 2-way Rookie Class event, in order to provide an opportunity for jumpers new to FS to get a taste of competition. Nine teams, seven in 4-way and two in 2-way, competed in this year's meet.

"Texas Skydiving League rules allow teams to share videographers. This can cause challenges when manifesting teams, but the awesome ladies in manifest took it all in stride. The competition briefing commenced, competitors were reminded of the Spaceland Dallas COVID protocol, the draw was handed out and the meet was set to start.
"Unfortunately, a rather impressive layer of fog had settled in. After a couple hours, the sun had decided the fog had overstayed its welcome and 'poof!', it was gone and Competition Load 1 was on a call. Spaceland Dallas lived up to its reputation as a well-oiled machine, and all six rounds were completed well before sundown.
"TSL gold medals went to AAA Class winner EZO Momongas, A Class winner I'd Grip That, Rookie Class winner Mom X S3. David Garcia and Tom Rhines won the 2-way competition (Snap, Crackle and Pop), with Alan Levy on camera.

"Erin has been an energetic, active FS 4-way competitor and a role model for Texas female skydivers for many years.
"Zach is a much respected, well known FS videographer, who has shot everything from FS 4-way up to Dallas Disturbance 16-way at the USPA Nationals to big-ways all over the world including Thailand and China. They will be moving to Hong Kong soon. We will miss them, and we look forward to their not-soon-enough return to Texas."
The Texas Skydiving League is also still connecting the TSL league meets by accumulating the results throughout the competition season. Scott Latinis did the math and announced the TSL 2020 winners:
