New England Skydiving League is expecting an exciting inaugural 2000 seasonBy Kurt Gaebel on 2000-03-03
Skydive New England and Pepperell Skydive Center are the first two hosts for two meets each. But the new league is still open for other interested hosts, as well. Skydive New England is expecting four teams to participate in the league. Pepperell already has two teams committed for the first season. The whole area is very excited about the new project and is finding some overwhelming support.
League director Beth Murray is enjoying positive cooperation with Mike Carpenter at Skydive New England and Paula Philbrook at Pepperell Skydive Center. Many helping hands have offered to do whatever it takes to launch the league this year: Philbrook has been in contact with NSL President Kurt Gaebel for a long time. Finally, she succeeded in finding the necessary interest in New England. Gaebel met with Murray in January at Lake Wales in Florida to discuss details for the new league.
A large group of skydivers from New England visited the Sunshine State to skydive and fly the SkyVenture wind tunnel while winter keeps their home drop zones asleep. But the spring will bring all the action and excitement to New England that other leagues have already been enjoying and more. For now, League director Murray will use the NSL website to post information. She is planning to build a website for the league at a later date. Welcome to the club. Blue Skies - Go Compete
