Airtight 2004 line-up
The weather in the central part of the county finally gave competitors a break! Meet 2 of the Indiana Skydiving League kicked off Saturday morning under broken skies. With only one short weather hold throughout the day the meet progressed nicely and finished with daylight to spare. The teams who attended were the same teams who came out last month and sat through a stalled front. Airtight returns with an improved performance over last year. Soylent Greene was sporting new team t-shirts with a recycling emblem and turned in an excellent performance with an alternate flying point.
A Class team Bipolarized
Plan B is a new team name for some familiar faces. Formerly, Fear Nada, this team moved up to AA Class this year after winning the A Class last year. The only A Class entrant at this meet was a new team, Bipolarized. This team may just kick some serious butt this year. Their scores were awfully good for a team that only got in one practice jump prior to the start of the meet, and their point only recently returned from service in Iraq.

I want to send out special thanks to a few set of folks on this meet. Thanks to Skydive Greene County for taking great care of us. The manifesting was extremely efficient and well-organized. The judge's room was top notch. Thanks to Team Fastrax for sending out David Hart, Bob Akers and Billy Andrews to serve as meet coaches. These guys did a great job and helped improve the overall performance of several teams. Huge thanks to our judges. Ann Shackleford came out and judged on her birthday, while John Goswitz came down to see us from the Northern Plains League. Great job. I am looking forward to the next ISL neet on July 18 at Skydive Wayne County in Richmond, Indiana.Blue Skies, Randy Connell, ISL Director
