|Greetings, Fellow Skydivers!|
At long last, here is theColorado Skydiving League schedule for 2005! The League will consist of4-way formation skydiving competitions, including Scrambles, Rookie andAA Classes.
First, the Scrambles:
The Scrambles meet is foranyone who can fly on their bellies well enough to be in a 4-way formationskydive! The participants will be divided into four experience levels,and team members will be randomly drawn from each experience group. Thereare usually quite a few highly experienced skydivers on each team. Thismakes a great opportunity for low-timers to do some fun, low pressure 4-waywith a strong group. Just show up and enjoy! There is no registration fee,and the cost of $90.00 covers threee jumps with video. Note to low-timers: Don’t be afraid to join this event. The stronger skydivers know what theyare getting themselves into! They are hoping to demonstrate to you justhow much fun RW can be! If you have questions about your qualifications,talk to Courtney or myself.
Now, the Rookie Class:
The Rookie class is an easy,fun way to learn more about 4-way. The skydives are three points per page,all randoms. This class is intended for low-experience jumpers to get theirfeet wet in competitive 4-way with a real team. There are no restrictionson experience level, so you can get a coach or a ringer on your team. Theteam registration fee is $45 per event, plus the cost of your jumps. Teamsare encouraged to supply their own videographer.
Finally, the AA Class:
The AA Class is not forpeople with a drinking problem. It is for more experienced skydivers whowant a greater challenge in their skydives. The dive pool is the same asthe Intermediate Class dive pool used at the USPA Nationals: 16 randomsand 16 blocks with no mirror image blocks, or memory blocks. Skydives are4 – 5 points per page. The team registration fee is $85 per event, plusthe cost of your jumps. Teams are encouraged to supply their own videographer.
