ZHills Meet #2 wraps up on the new pond.

Greg Windmiller, Nick Batsch, Curt Bartholomew by:Jake Carlow

This past weekend 36 competitors gathered in Zephyrhills Florida for the second meet of the 2011 season. It was an even mix of competitors with 18 pro and 18 amateur competitors. The week started with the PD Factory Team training all week leading upto the meet. Saturday morning started about an hour behind schedule waiting for the fog to burn off. Once we got jumping tha pace continued rather quickly throughout the day, expecially with the dz hosting 40 ways at the same time. After two rounds of distance amateur Sergei Fedotov was in the lead. The zone accuracy event shuffled the crowd a bit, and the speed event was rather challenging with 13-14 mph headwinds by the later afternoon. We finished the meet by 6:00 and headed to the new Z-Hills bar to wait as the judges compiled the scores. The dropzone was nice enough to serve up a delicious italian buffet for all the competitors to enjoy.

After two meets Greg Windmiller seems to have a strong lead on the FLCPA overall placings, but it’s still anyones game.
