Countdown to Nationals! Thursday 10/8, T minus 4 days
Hey everyone, it's great to be at Skydive Spaceland right now! This particular blogger hasn't been here in a few months and the changes are spectacular. Huge new hangar for planes and creeping, more bathrooms, team rooms, mega swoop pond, full carpet in the main hangar, gravel walking paths (less mud!)... we'll take a full photo tour of the facilities later on.
For now, we'll just enjoy a sunrise photo from this morning...
Things are hopping here; the hangar is opening at 7:30 a.m., teams are checking in and practicing, and the first load just took off (8:45 am). The weather's great, come on out and play!
IMPORTANT NOTE: This year, Omniskore will not be scoring the USPA Nationals... we'll be using CamScore. To stay tuned to the scores and happenings at Nationals, please visit www.USPAnationals.com. We'll have scores, a blog (shortly), live judging video feed, and much more.
Stay tuned for more updates!
1:15 pm: Load 10 is in the air and last-minute Nationals preparations are in full swing.
3:20 pm: Winds are up, and most of the teams are down after 12 loads. Airspeed, Voluntas, Raptor, and Spaceland Force have made training jumps so far. Seems like a good time to catch up on that Skydive Spaceland photo tour...
