Re: [Eagle7] Turning Points

Since everyone else is just fartin' around: Wink

You can find pictures of 4-way and 8-way formations here:
http://www.fai.org/...nts/sportingcode2006
(scroll down to "formation skydiving" and you can download pdf files with the diagrams)

And you can find some 4-way videos here: http://www.skyleague.com/indexX.php
(click on "NSL TV" for videos)

You can make up moves (called "points") for any size group of skydivers, but for serious competitions the points are chosen from the official dive pools and you have to complete those points in order as many times as your team can. You usually have either 30 seconds or 50 seconds to do so. The judges look at video of your jump, count your points, look for any mistakes, and give you a score.

We don't have 3-way competition at the national level of formation skydiving it's just 4-way, 8-way, 10-way, and 16-way with their related dive pools, but at some fun local meets you may find 3-way competitions. (oops, see bob.dino's link below. Other countries may have 3-way at the national level, I was just thinking about the U.S.)

Make some sense?
