Sunday 10 October
Good morning. The canopy piloting events are beginning their semifinal rounds this morning. OmniSkore is not used for these events, so we have to depend on others for information to pass along to you. We will do the best we can, but I fear this is going to be a sloooooooooooooow day.
In yesterday's Tidbits, Tim noted that "If you look close, you might find the names of two Wagners on there, Ted and Mary, Essence of Speed, 1989." This morning we have this email from Chris "BigWaz" Wagner, who is currently in Afghanistan: "If you'll notice on the first plate affixed to the original plastic base you'll see Big Bro's name thereon (from the Nov '83 Z-Hills Turkey Meet). If I recall, I'm on there a second time for the same meet in '86."
Now that formation skydiving is over, and with all the activity around the canopy piloting area, the area outside manifest is deserted. Elvis has left the building.
We are still looking for updates of the scores for the Canopy Piloting events.
We are STILL trying to get our hands on updates on scores for the Canopy Pilots. I've heard some highly experienced formation skydivers speaking with awe in their voices about what they have seen over there around the swoop pond.
Thank you all for the wonderful email. Lots and lots of great supporters out there, and we really appreciate it. And we couldn't do this without the gracious support of the host - please do be sure to thank them.
