OmniSkore! is an electronic scoring system designed and built by Ted Wagner specifically for scoring Formation Skydiving events, including 4-way, 8-way, 16-way, and Canopy Formation Skydiving. It is a PC-based, fully networked system that is easy to set up and operate. OmniSkore! consists of one to eight judging panels, a scoring processor, and a suite of interface software. OmniSkore! is also used in versions called Pegasus and Stylus for scoring Freestyle & Skysurfing and Style & Accuracy competitions.
On Omniskore's web site right now there is a daily coverage of the US 2000 Nationals which take place from September 30 to October 15 at Perris Valley Skydiving in California, USA.

|Ian's Skydiving Diary
Don't feel too bad if things in your skydiving career didn't work out as well as you thought, or not as fast as you wished. A visit to Ian's Log Book web site might comfort you while struggling with the hurdles of your AFF levels and rookie jumps. British skydiver Ian Smith put his log book and a skydiving diary on his web site, and it looks as if he didn't leave one of his jumps out.
Here beginners of the sport get an idea what it means to learn to fly. Even those who left their student days behind years ago will enjoy the stories and the memories they bring back. But Ian doesn't stop at stories, you can visually follow his progression with many photos also found here. And finally, Ian rounds off his site with lots of links to explore once you're through exploring and reading through his interesting online home.
