Did you know that the FAI/IPC cuts for semi-finals and finals are history?
posted: May 13th, 2016 Semi-finals and finals have been a part of the Formation Skydiving competition rules at FAI World Championships and FAI World Cups for over 20 years. In the earlier years, the number of teams who would be eliminated after Round 8 and then Round 9 depended on the total number of participating teams (50% of all teams after Round 8, another 50% after Round 9). The elimination rules changed in 2000, and exactly ten teams made it to Round 9 for the first time at the World Meet 2001 in Spain. Only six of the ten teams then continued in Round 10. This format has been applied ever since, and the Sun... (more)

Did you know that MWSL team EXtreme was challenged by two junior teams at the IBA indoor meet in Rosemont?
posted: May 12th, 2016 A small 4-way competition was a part of the recent IBA Indoor Competition Series event at iFLY Rosemont in Chicago. One of the Midwest Skydiving League teams used the indoor competition to get some meet practice before the start of the MWSL 2016 outdoor season. SDC EXtreme came back with three original team members of 2014 and 2015 (Stanley Bukala, Gene Keturakis, Vince Kramolinski) and new EXtremist Andrzej Nycz. It was the first indoor competition for SDC EXtreme, after six MWSL outdoor meets in the last two years, three in the A Class of 2014 and three in the AA Class of 2015. EXtreme... (more)

Did you know that three DeLand Norgies were back in 4-way action?
posted: May 11th, 2016 The Sun Path Products NSL News briefly mentioned the Nordic Indoor Championships 2016 with yesterday's update from Denmark. Pangaea had attended the indoor competition at VossVind after winning the DFU Cup. The Nordics were a Scandinavian extension of the Norwegian national indoor championships, which were held in 2015 for the first time. The event was the second combined Scandinavian indoor competition, as teams from Finland and Sweden joined for their national championships earlier this year. The Sun Path Products reported on February 18th. The Nordics brought one team from the fourth Scandinavian... (more)

Did you know that Valkyria from Denmark is qualified for the Mondial 2016?
posted: May 10th, 2016 The annual DFU Cup in Denmark is usually a warm-up competition for the domestic teams to get ready for the national championships. This year, it had more relevance than in the past. Denmark's skydiving federation (DFU) has been considering sending a national team in 4-way Women to the World Championship of Formation Skydiving at the Mondial 2016 later this year, and the DFU Cup offered the opportunity for Danish teams to qualify for the event. The qualification standard for the female 4-way event was set at the 10-average benchmark, which turned out to be no serious obstacle for Valkyria. Denmark... (more)

Did you know that there is more to Girl Power in skydiving competition?
posted: May 9th, 2016 It was September 2013 when I last touched on the delicate subject of gender separation in our sport. I had finally made peace with the fact that there are two different belly-flying 4-way categories that the International Parachuting Committee (IPC) had forced upon us: one only for girls and the other one for everybody. I had argued the logic of the IPC move since the new category was introduced in 2001 and gave us new and additional 4-way world champions on a performance level that was significantly below the 4-way open class scoring level. I felt bad for the female 4-way open class world champions... (more)

Did you know that the Northern California Skydiving League beat the weather in Lodi?
posted: May 9th, 2016 The Northern California Skydiving League launched its 2016 outdoor season on the first day of May. It was originally scheduled for the last day of April, however, the very windy weather forecast changed the plans, and it was actually a surprise that the meet took place at all. NCSL Director Lori Connor was glad that it still worked out: "Well, in spite of the wind on Saturday, Meet #1 happened on Sunday." She said that the winds were surprisingly calm at Lodi, and the teams were jumping starting with the first load of the day. The Parachute Center eventually flew over 30 loads on Sunday with...
