Thus was the scene for the second installment of the AA Class meets for the Colorado Skydiving League. The meet was again held at Mile Hi Skydiving Center.
The meet had been postponed for a week to take advantage of the Skydive Arizona Skyvan that was scheduled to be on hand for a boogie, instead of using the KingAir that normally propels Colorado skydivers to 18000’ MSL.
Mile Hi Skydiving did a fantastic job of getting us in the air. They accommodated us as never before, doing everything possible to make sure we got our jumps in. Thanks to Lisa LaPointe and Melody Schock for their help at manifest, and thanks to Frank and Tom for making it all possible! We got six rounds in, probably a new Colorado record for 4-way competition!
With Courtney Frasch judging the meet, and manifest keeping us jumping, there was nothing left for me to do as meet director, so I got to compete with G-Gap.
The Air Force instructor team (LOC) walked away with the meet, winning every round by a comfortable margin. They look pretty sharp, flying with an economy of movement that would make the greatest efficiency experts nervous about their jobs.
The battle for second place was much closer. G-Gap won the first round by a point, then started giving up ground to Prodigy. By round three, Prodigy was five points ahead. G-Gap started making a comeback, and was only two points down going into round six. But Prodigy pulled it together and outscored G-Gap by one point in round six, crushing G-Gap with a 3-point defeat.
The next meet is a AA meet, scheduled for July 10.
See ya there!
