NorCal Canopy Piloting Comp.#2 Recap
We had a beautiful day yesterday up at Skydive Sacramento for the NCCPA canopy piloting comp. #2. We had 12 competitors total with 3 competing on 10ft gates and 9 competing on the 5ft gates.
The top four spots were tight all competition long and in the end, some guy named Jonathan Tagle took first. Norcal locals Ryan Brownlow and Pete Galli followed up with 2nd and 3rd place.
1st - $300 and 5 future H&P from Skydive Sacramento. 2nd - $60, LiquidSky Swoop Shorts (originally for 1st, but 1st was a sponsored athelete), Z1 helmet provided by Extreme Addiction, and 5 future H&P from Skydive Sac. 3rd - recouped meet fee of $20 and 5 future H&P's.
Its been a lot of fun, a lot of work, and its finally paying off with some great competitions.
Special thanks to Extreme Addiction who has provided alot of competition markers and windblades. Extreme Addiction also put in the peas that the competitors get to enjoy after the pond. Amanda has also managed and done a great job with all of our volunteer judges. We've been extremely fortunate to have such great support from our local skydiving community to help judge the competitions.
Skydive Sacramento, Peter Galli (Canopy Flight Center), LiquidSky, the FLCPA, L&B, Extreme Addiction, and our volunteers have all made this possible.
Hope you can join us for the next meet July 23rd at Skydive Sacramento in Lincoln, CA.
