Did You Know...... that teams from Slovenia joined the international NSL Network?
Vesce with coach Joey Jones at the World Cup 2013
The new team appeared for the first time on the NSL leaderboard when Vesce competed at the July meet of the Czech Republic Skydiving League. Vesce then also competed later in August at the World Cup 2013 in Banja Luka.
Only the Slovenian national 4way team, Sky Dragons, had made the Sun Path Products NSL News before when the team represented Slovenia at the world meets. However, Vesce member Saso Tepina wanted more competition in his region and began making plans to join the international NSL Network on a regular basis. Last weekend, three teams from Slovenia contributed scores to the overall leaderboard for the first time.
Slovenian teams and competitors at the Golden Helmet Cup
He reported from Slovenia that the meet was the first 4way competition for all videographers. Boris Kos is a newly recruited camera flyer with A Class team 4 Asi, while Nejc Pandur and Uros Meglic are freeflyers who helped out the other two teams. 4 Asi also used a substitute for their own Center Outside Igor Benedik who was not available last weekend. Gregor Muhvic, a 4way competitor of 2010, is coming back after a long pause and had his first meet opportunity with the A Class team.
Nejc Pandur helped out for the Angry Birds who were missing their coach and videographer Aljaz Mavric. The Angry Birds needed another substitute on camera for the last round and had bad luck when they discovered just before the exit that the battery was dead.
Vesce with the Golden Helmet trophy
It was the first time for Vesce that the team exited the first point rather than a Meeker, as the team had done until last weekend. Saso Tepina said that it worked well and that his team is not going back. The sequence of Round 5 (17,N,11) also brought slot switchers for both pieces to the team for the first time. Vesce was mirroring similar sequences in the past. The slot switcher was hard, however, the team plans to make it work better after some more training.
The meet ended with free beer and pizza for the teams and competitors, followed by a long-lasting party.
