Saturday 9 October
BEEP...BEEP...BEEP...BEEP...*THWACK* snooze button.
One of the most highly prized perennial trophies in skydiving is the coveted CG GodFrog award, does anyone know if it's on site?
BING, just checked the inbox and I have some CP results to post.
Okay, I just got some CP results posted. It's not very pretty html and I'll clean it up when the events are done.
10-way judging has started, and STL 10 starts strong with a 11.37.
Majik Knights just posted their third straight sub-10-second round and have about a 4-second lead over second place STL with Airspeed 10 in a distant third.
BTW today is my last day here. My able assistant, OmniDad Roy Wagner, will be continuing the show in my stead when competition resumes on Monday. We plan on having all the CF scores posted as usual, and the classics when we can get them.
STL picked up ground on Majik Knights and now trail by 2.49 seconds with two jumps left...
It's amazing how much the email falls off on weekends. Need to go look for GodFrog now...
...ah, dang near tripped over the thing, it's sitting right next to DZTV! If you look close, you might find the names of two Wagners on there, Ted and Mary, Essence of Speed, 1989. There is a great history of CG GodFrog here.
Round 6 of 10-way, the final round of Formation Skydiving at the 2004 USPA Nationals, is in the air.
BOO! Anyone in here? Final 10-way scores coming up...judging the last round in reverse order of standing, there is an enthusiastic crowd around the DZTVs outside...STL just got a huge round of applause for their jump, a score of 8.91 seconds, so Majikal Knights needs a decent jump to get the gold...and they post a 9.53 and win the gold, great finish in 10-way.
Well, that's a wrap for Formation Skydiving. It was loads of fun and it was fun sharing it. Perris Valley Skydiving did another awesome job and put on a very good show. The FS banquet is tonight, I'll take pictures but I won't have them posted for a couple of days as this here PC is getting packed up shortly. Thanks, good night, and have a great tomorrow! - T2
