Did you know that teams had to deal with rules today??
posted: Sep 7th, 2003 The competition draw is out, and it does not seem to be very fast, as some of the experts commented it. Does this mean anything when all the teams are jumping the same sequences anyway? DeLand Majik member Solly Williams, who is coaching several teams in Gap, explained how the draw can make a difference: "The slower the draw is, the more difficult it is for any team to run away from the field. We will probably see a tight competition with possibly more teams in the run than with a fast draw. And we might also not see the top teams scoring higher than 22.0 average." The sequences have now been added... (more)
Did you know that the 8-way field is even after round two?
posted: Sep 7th, 2003 The competition is back to ground zero. Round two surprisingly evened the field. France, Russia and U.S.A. are all tied in first place. Russia and Airspeed both went through the whole 50 seconds as if they were the same team, synchronized until the Omniskore freeze frame. Both teams missed the second Donut for the completion of the 20th point by fractions of a second. Actually, the French 8-way team did exactly the same thing. However, they had to accept a penalty when a brainlock to the Double Spiders (M) on top of the fourth page caused this formation to be incomplete when it was keyed. (more)
Did you know that the 8-way games have begun?
posted: Sep 7th, 2003 The games have started. May the best team win. And it is time for the 8-way fans, first of all. The poll at the NSL World Meet Forum sees Arizona Airspeed as the big winner of the event, no chances for Russia or France. We will take a closer look at the 8-way situation later today. Let's first see what the first round of the meet has done to the three top teams. (more)
Did you know that Gap seems to be ready for Mondial 2003?
posted: Sep 6th, 2003 The transition of the NSL News headquarters from DeLand to Gap, France, went smoother than expected. It took a few hours and hick-ups to set up the office, but finally the NSL computer was successfully connected to the internet. NSL News reporter Kurt Gaebel was fortunate enough to run right into Omniskore Master T1 Ted Wagner after arrival and when the first technical problems occurred. Jump Shack President John Sherman also offered his technical expertise to help, while his Marketing Manager and U.S. team member Nancy La Riviere tested the "Mega Booster". (more)
Did you know that Skydive Sebastian hosted the last FSL meet in January 2003?
posted: Jan 18th, 2003 The first meet of the Florida Skydiving League 2003 brought seven teams to Skydive Sebastian on a very cold morning. The host was well prepared for the start of the FSL 2003 season with a Skyvan to fly the local 16-way team and fun jumpers and a Twinotter for the teams. Both aircraft are from Cross Keys, NJ. The event location was the site of the USPA Nationals in 1999 and is set up very well for a competition. While the jumpers had above average facilities and aircraft, the NSL staff was spoiled by the location. Chief Judge Richard Schachner had his own almost private judging room. NSL President... (more)
