(European) Swoop events 2009
Now the World Meet is over its time to look ahead and start planning the swoop events for 2009.
In Europe we would like to set-up a European Swoop Tour again. The initial main criteria are IPC rules, high level event and a significant cash purse. Voss Norway, Kolomna Russia, Empuriabrava Spain and Bussloo The Netherlands used to have this but unfortunately the first 3 are not even scheduled anymore. Therefore weve lowered the limit to about 6.000 to be part of the EST family.
Lillo Spain April 30 to May 03 (potential EST) Kaohsiung Chinese Taipei June 06 -13 (World Games) Fehrbellin Germany June 25 -27 (potential EST) Turin Italy July 16 26 (World Air Games) Bad Lippspringe Germany July 22 25 Open UK Nationals (potential EST) Kolomna Russia considering a bid for World Cup for first or second weekend of August Italian Swoop Competition probably first or second weekend of August (potential EST) Klatovy Czech Republic August 14 16 (potential EST) Zwartberg Belgium August 21 23 (potential EST) Bussloo The Netherlands August 27 29 (potential EST) Johannesburg South Africa October 07 11 (bid for IPC World Cup) Skydive Spaceland Texas October 12 27 (US Nationals incl. CP)
Parallel to the EST there might be an August Swoop Tour (with an overall cash purse) for at least Klatovy, Zwartberg and Bussloo. Hopefully Italy can join as well.
Were heading a busy and interesting swoop season.
