Gold Demonstration Team had a busy weekend jumping into Washington DC and Delaware. The team had the privilege of jumping into Howard University in downtown DC, where the college was hosting a NCAA Football game. The Golden Knights got the game started with a 4,000 foot stack out, followed by a baton presentation to Wayne AI Frederick, the President of the School, as well as Coach Ted White, the football coach. The students were very excited about the jump and cheered for the team as they flew overhead. After the jump and line-up, the team met up with some of the students from the ROTC program to present them with a team lithograph. It was a joy to jump into such a motivated and exciting University.
Immediately following the jump into Howard University, the team loaded up and flew to Deleware for the NASCAR race at Dover International Speedway. The weather could not have been more beautiful for the jump. Since there were no winds, the team was able to perform a formation directly over the race track, causing the Bomb Burst to stretch to all angles of the stadium. Upon opening, the team brought their parachutes in for a nice show line spread, where each member of the team was assigned a different section of the stadium to land in front of. The NASCAR fans made Gold Team feel very welcome as they approached the race track for perfectly soft landings.
