Andrew Happick continues in the Point slot, Doug Barron is the Center Outside, Joey Freeman the Center Inside, with Nick Grillet as the new Tail. Chad Wilcox is still filming the team.
The Carolina Turbo XP members are happy to get back into the swing of things, and they are excited to see what this year will bring for Turbo. Indoor training was scheduled for January and through February, along with a few training jumps. The full training schedule will resume at the end of February, before Turbo attends the first outdoor competition at the Paraclete XP Outdoor Championship 2014 in DeLand.
Carolina Turbo XP has been running the team's usual tunnel camps at Paraclete XP throughout the winter months, and the next one is coming up this weekend. Interested skydivers and tunnel flyers can contact Andrew Happick directly by E-mail.
Turbo will kick off the activities of the Carolina Skydiving League on May 10th on their home turf at Skydive Carolina in Chester. Andrew Happick said that his own new lineup will compete, together with a Paraclete XP 4way lineup and probably also with the Golden Knights lineup in the female 4way categeory. Golden Knights and Turbo with the new lineup will post the first 2014 scores at the Paraclete XP indoor and outdoor double header.
