Did You Know...

The Shamrock Showdown 2005 features world-class sky diving

By Charlene Hager-Van Dyke | Sentinel Staff Writer

DELAND -- The DeLand Airport will take on an international flair this weekend as hot-doggers from around the world converge on the sky-diving mecca for the state's first competition this year.

Twenty sky-diving teams will participate in the Florida Skydiving League's Shamrock Showdown 2005, eight of which will be competing against each other for points to go on to the nationals in California this September.

"This is the league's season opener; the first meeting of the regular season," said Kurt Gaebel, president of the DeLand-based National Skydiving League.

While there are six top contenders in the country, Gaebel said all of the U.S. teams have the opportunity to qualify as a national team.

The six top teams are Air Speed Velocity and Air Speed, both from Arizona; the United States Army's Golden Knights; Team Fastrax of Indiana; and two of DeLand's home teams, the DeLand Majik and DeLand Fire. A third DeLand team, DeLand Jamba, also recently formed and will participate.

The line-up for the DeLand Majik, the world champions, has changed markedly from previous years with the departure of members Gary Smith and Joey Jones. Original Majik members Solly Williams and Doug Park filled the two open spots with Florida competitors David van Greuningen and Robert Healy.
