2008 VRW Can't Post

Is going to be much more competitive than 2007. I just found this - Arsenal

I have a team put together this year, not too competitive, we're just friends trying to challenge and improve our skill. Our goal is to be turning 5 points per round by Nationals. Last year that would have put us on the podium in Intermediate but I don't think we'll be so lucky this year.

Who else is planning on competing in Intermediate VRW? I'm really hoping to see more than 5 teams this year.

I'm expecting to see Elsinores Jedei and Team Dysfunction from here in AZ. Does anyone on here know if Mandrin still has a couple of farm teams coming down? Will the Dallas crowd be showing up again?

Team Vibe will be there. We have a new team here at Dallas named Evol. They are planning on being there also.

I expect to see more intermediate teams at Nationals this year. I really want to see this take off and one day have numbers similar to 4 way RW.

I think this is just the beginning. Have you seen the 8-way VRW stuff from the folks down in Sebastian? (Sorry, but Youtube is blocked here at work so I can't include the link.) ... The future is full of possibilities!Cool

Dallas is bringing two teams?!? That is awesome, I'm glad to hear it. Is Vibe pretty much the same lineup that it had last year? You guys were a fun bunch in Chicago.

Watch for the first all chicky intermediate team coming out of Norcal and iFly SF Bay. Coaching from NorCal Alliance members. It's not the size of the tunnel that matters, it's the people who chose to use it. Cool

Re: [VivaHeadDown] 2008 VRW [In reply to] Can't Post

There's the sleeper right there!! I knew that NorCal could easily put a team together that would do some serious spankin, I just didn't know if they would do it or not.

Thats is excellent. The more the merrier. It will be a bit embarrassing getting beat by an all chick team though. Pirate

Hold that thought, some demo shots to follow (not joking, need to do some digging, hilarity will ensue). We talking excess drag (pun intended) to keep him inverted?


Edit: Review attached. had to pull these from my phone, these are the least incriminating. I have more for a less public forum. He cross over well enough for the slot?

Yeah, I think he'll make the B-team for sure. EOS has too may hot girls already, so he'll definately help balance that out.

Elsinore Jedi will definitely be there.

Also, there was an Elsinore/Perris pick-up team (conveniently named "Sith" har har) that competed in the Elsinore VFS meet back in June and you may see some of those folks bring a team to Nationals as well.

I am sure it will be just as much fun or more so. The challenge of competing will be exciting. Meeting and hanging out some the top freefliers in the world. The parties!

Open looks like it will be a close match. It will be exciting to see who comes out on top.

I am pretty sure there will be more teams in the Advanced class then there were last year. I am looking forward to the added competition and meeting some new people.

Open:

Az Arsenal
Deland Hybrid
Az Drive
Mandrin
Norcal Alliance


Advanced:

Elsinore Jedi
Dysfunction
NorCal chicks
Joe's Team
Dallas Evol
Dallas Vibe


Also, I think 4-speed (the French team) is planning on being there as a guest team to train for the world cup. The same might also be true for Outbreak Vertical, though I don't know.

This is going to be a great turnout. I hope everybody makes it down. Is there anyone else out there bringing a team down or looking for a pickup team?
