Nationals, T minus 3 days (Friday, 10/9)
In the meantime, we'll keep working on setups and getting the incoming staff up to speed. Look for a post on the CamScore system later today, along with more photos!
Speaking of scoring, while we won't be using Omniskore this year, I'd like to say a big THANK YOU to them for providing their services for so many competitions up to this point. Whether following the meet from home or checking scores on my phone from the competition, they've always been a great resource (especially the Timbits+Tedbits :-). We'll do our best to live up to that standard of reporting!
12 pm: Yep, it's raining and cool now... temp's bumped down to the mid-60s and it's still breezy, so bring some long sleeves if you're heading out today.
Competitors: Have you heard that everyone has to register online this year? You can do it before you get here or stand in line for a registration terminal once you get here... it's probably easier for both of us if you do it before you arrive! Visit Skydive Spaceland's Nationals registration system to get started. As of right now, we have 308 jumpers registered and 62 teams (including all events). It's shaping up to be a good time out here!
2:30 pm: Yup, still raining. There's some discussion on Facebook about sacrificing virgin sheep to appease the gods and make it stop raining, but apparently virtual sheep don't cut it. We'll have to try something else...
In the meantime, how about some photos of the people who are making it happen around here?
3:10 pm: So it's not raining at the moment, but it's pretty dark and gloomy... For the moment, I'll leave you with this thought:
4:15 pm: OK, who was in charge of the sacrifices to the weather gods? It's raining buckets right now. Let's take a minute to look at some of our more entertaining team names so far... what's your favorite?
