The flow of the teams that initially began in our Rookie Class two and three years ago and progressed to the A Class competition last year has now moved into the AA Class, which appears to be our class to watch in 2006. Last year's MWSL A Class champs, Chicagoland Skydiving Center's Sirens, were joined by Skydive Chicago's Furies, Skydive Chicago Cohesion and Just 4Fun.
After four rounds the Furies (Sarah Lawrence, Gosia Cienkosz, Shannon Sweet, Lisa DeSimone, Charles Lane on camera) led the Sirens by only two points. But the draw for rounds five and six did not offer good opportunities for making up many points and, in fact, the two teams had identical scores in those rounds resulting in a 57-55 win for the SDC ladies.
While Amy did not win any prizes on Saturday, team member Jim Bloomingdale received a generous gift from Isaiah McCauliffe and the good folks at Performance Designs. Jim had lost his Stiletto 150 while participating in the SDC Furies "Intro to 4-way" camp two weeks ago. PD and the MWSL awarded Jim a 30% off certificate to help him replace it.
All in all, it was a very promising and enjoyable start to our 2006 season. Our thanks to Rook, Melissa, Tom Aussem, Ada Napolitano, Whitney Reilly and the rest of the staff at Skydive Chicago for running a very well paced and organized meet. Also, thanks to Drew Hickok for serving as meet judge. MWSL Meet 2 is less than three weeks away on June 24 at Chicagoland Skydiving in Hinckley, Illinois. Hope to see everyone there.
