Dancing At Alabama Skydiving Center

After a previous weekend of nothing but, clouds, everyone was stoked to get up in the air, this past weekend at Alabama Skydiving Center. With a weekend loaded with tandems, students flying through their next levels, and fun jumpers from near and far, it was definitely a packed weekend for skydiving in Pell City!

We welcomed back Natasha Mitchell, it was nice to see our rigger back in action packing cause Miss Mitchell shows us how a real woman gets it done! A long lost skydiving friend, Meredith Hughes of Tuscaloosa, graced us with her presence; come to Pell City more often stranger! Alabama Skydiving Center’s AFF students Tim and Nick Raines and John Kongable all shined, passing to their next level. Almost done guys!

With the moon rising and the pizza man on his way, it was clear that our potato guns were feeling a little neglected. After dinner at the DZ, we all suited up for some hiking and shooting! After a couple of hours of briar patches, ditches and launching potatoes through the air, we all headed back to the DZ…which by the way, was over a mile! Once back at the hanger, jokingly someone suggested we pull out the infamous “Dance Dance Revolution” game. Well, if you can imagine, one game turned into many and before we knew it, we were all competing to be the best dancer at the Pell City Drop Zone! From Lora’s kick-spin turns to Jeff’s oh so often pelvis thrusts, we had quite a team of wannabe Britney Spears backup dancers on our hands. Out in the hanger Natasha and Nichole kept themselves busy competing with any and every imaginable one-armed flip to be thought of. After our roller skating extravaganza, you’d think we’d learn to stick to skydiving. And with that kind of excitement going on, our tandem, soon to be AFF student, Aaron Anderson stayed the night…obviously we’re a hard crowd to get away from here at Alabama Skydiving Center!

As Sunday came and went, so did numerous jumps! Blues skies all day, and nothing but smiles, it was truly a weekend to remember! Headed by Natasha, was a superb Cat formation that was to be completed by Rachael, Lora, and Nichole. It was beautiful during the dirt-dive, however unfortunately it was also quite late in the day, and was unable to be exhibited in the air. No worries though, there’s another weekend on its way…stay tuned for next week’s details of the Alabama Skydiving Center!
