Did You Know...... that Slovenia and Austria combined their national championships this year?
Vesce with Joey Jones at the World Cup 2013
Coach Joey Jones was with Team Vesce in Banja Luka where the team collected their first international meet experiences. It was not the first time this year though that Vesce appeared on the NSL leaderboard. The Slovenian team had also attended the July meet of the Czech Republic Skydiving League in Prostejov after a training camp with Joey Jones.
Training with coach Joey Jones and the meet experiences are beginning to show, as Vesce has increased the meet averages (3.5 - 6.2 - 8.4) at each event so far.

Zoran Tiegl, Tomaz Hrast, Kaja Kojcan and Aljaz Mavric, with Uros Spindler on camera, competed for Slovenia at the World Meet 2010 in Menzelinsk, Russia, and finished with a 13.3 average. The same lineup competed for the Sky Dragons at the Mondial Dubai 2012, now with Jure Cotic on camera.
Erik Kojcan is a new member this year and replaced Aljaz Mavric at the end of the 2012 season. The Sky Dragons posted a 12.3 aerage at the national championships and finished in 3rd place behind two Austrian teams. New team Vesce placed in the middle of the combined leaderboard.
New Sky Dragons 2013 lineup in Bedford
Vesce was so fortunate that former Sky Dragons member Aljaz Mavric was at the competition site as a videographer for another team. However, he was available to step in. The meet organizers agreed with using the substitute, and Vesce could continue.
Aljaz Mavric helped Vesce to improve the meet average once again, and coach Joey Jones was satisfied with the encouraging new numbers.
