“On February 26th AXIS Flight School and Johnny Gunn donated their time to perform a demo jump into the Pinnacle Peak Country Club in Scottsdale, AZ for the Tee It Up For The Troops golf outing. Johnny jumped with Army Ranger SFC Cory Remsberg in tandem onto the driving range. Cory was hit by a roadside bomb in Oct 2009 and was left in a coma for 3 months. He is now walking and talking but most importantly smiling. It was a beautiful day and to top it off Tee It Up For The Troops made a generous donation of $3,000 to OEW Skydive.” – MURV

“The 12th annual Free Fly Money Meet was held on February 22nd. In this five round meet competitors are randomly matched with a different partner of similar flying ability for each round. A sequence of compulsory moves are drawn from a set dive pool for each round. Competitors gain one point each time they correctly perform a move in the order of the draw. A video pool camera flyer records the dives, and individuals scores from each round are carried into the next round. The person with the highest total score for all five rounds wins. Twenty-eight competitors took part in the competition in three skill classes. Standings were as follows: Open: 1st Steve Curtis, 2nd Darrell Walton, 3rd (tie) Travis Mills and Mike “Friday” Friedman; Intermediate: 1st Seth Studer, 2nd Rory Corrigan, 3rd Greg Andrews; and Beginner: 1st Tom Feng, 2nd Mace Weaver, 3rd Bartley Carlson. Winners were awarded cash prizes in addition to prizes from Skydive Arizona, SkyVenture Arizona, the Bent Prop, Larsen & Brusgaard, Ouragan Suits, and Alice Hicks.” -Jocelyn Bernatchez
“This photo is a bit cryptic, but when you are flying a tiny little high performance canopy right along a really-damn-big wingsuit, in the dark, a few thousand feet above a bunch of thorny, prickly things, your attention might not be completely on the camera work. Nik Daniel (canopy pilot) and Alex Swindle (wingsuiter) completed the first night-dock XRW (to the best of our knowledge) on the night of January 11th, in the dark skies above Skydive Arizona in Eloy, AZ” – Blue Skies Magazine
