Of course, they only take place when the weather does not allow any jumping from planes. Usually, it also takes a while until all hope for any competition round is gone, and all other activity options have been exhausted.

The Sun Path Products NSL News reported a creeper competition on 21 April 2014 when teams in Florida could not get in the air. It was not the only one. The July meet of the Southern Skydiving League was also completely weathered out, and SSL Director Brandy Verhalen was well prepared to organize the alternate ground competition.
