Micah Couch drags the accuracy course at STF 2010.
Now that the 2010 season is over I’m curious to hear any suggestions you guys may have. Are there any locations you would like to see a meet next year? Any rule changes you’d like to see? Any suggestions for how we can get everyone to show up on time for the briefing;-) You can email me any ideas email@example.com or leave a comment on this post if you want.
Also if you enjoyed the course markers we used this year, keep your fingers crossed. PD is looking into the possibility of getting a few that are 10 foot tall. If you appreciated the course markers they’ve allowed us to use and allowing me the time to help keep the leage going(sometimes during work hours, shh don’t tell), don’t hesitate to let them know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
FLCPA 2010 Season top 4
After the 5th and final FLCPA meet last weekend we closed out the season with the annual end of year BBQ on Saturday evening. Taking top honors for the five meet series was amateur Warren Cleary who inched out pro Curt Bartholomew by only 2.5 points!! Third place was grabbed up by PDFT member Ian Drennan. As the top placing Amateur and Pro competitors Warren and Curt will have their jumps and registration pick up at nationals by the FLCPA. This season was a blockbuster. We graduated 20% of our Amateur competitors up to the pro class for next season. Those top 4 Am’s were Warren Cleary, Sven Jseppi, “Shrinking” Steve Haseman, and Kritter Weiss. Well deserved!!! See you guys on the five footers next year;-)
The planning for 2011 is already underway and we’ve got a few new plans that should make the meets even better. The full results for each of the seasons meets can be found on the meet archive page here. The overall for the season can be found there as well. Big thanks to this seasons supporters Performance Designs, and Liquid Sky Sports.

Greg Windmiller wins at STF
This weekends meet was definitely a spectacular end to a great season. Eighteen Pro and ten Amateur competitors for a total of 28 pilots began to arrive on Wednesday for the last meet of the season. The temperatures were in the 90’s and the humidity was high. The winds stayed under 4 mph for the practice and competition days.
The competition ran smoothly. We started Saturday morning with Speed, then moved into zone accuracy, and ended the day with the distance event. The meet remained close throughout the day. After 4 rounds, the top 10 places were within 60 points of each other keeping the event open to anyone to take home a top spot right until the end. During the first round of distance Jessica Edgington set a new Georgia state record at 123.07 meters. This surpassed the previous state record held by her team mate, Ian Drennan at 119.02 meters.
After the six rounds were complete, Greg Windmiller of the US Army Golden Knights stood victorious over the 27 other competitors. He was followed closely behind by Curt Bartholomew by 7 points. Third place was locked up by veteran swooper and Skydive the Farm pilot Kevin Love.
