I couldn't find that new block 13 HD Star/HD Star. Could you explain that one?

The official drawings haven't been posted yet, but I think its like the Nik Nak posted on the vrw4way.com suggestions. This is a head down star, then the grips break into two pieces which go around each other (like block 9), or in an alley-oop motion, then rejoin to a head down star.

Just to make it easy:
Quote:
Dive pool changes

Block 1
Solo flyer grip is on flyer with cross at beginning and end of move
Random A
Both outside flyers with only one grip have to have right hand on left arm or vice versa
Delete Block 11 (overcrank/undercrank)
Delete Random D (HD Star)
New Block 11 is Fun buddies
Block 13 is HD star/HD star
Block 14 is satellite/satellite
Random D is Sitline

Well I got my wish! I was hoping for the sit star and the sit accordian block, but at least now there is an all head up point Smile

I'm guessing there are no changes to the designation of open/advanced formations, which would probably put the sitline in the open.

Thank you, do you know which of these will be in the Advanced dive pool?

I don't know the answer to when the moves will be integrated into the USPA dive pool and which will be intermediate and which open, but I will try to find out and post this info when I do.

check out the new description for the head down star/head down star block 13. It isn't what I thought.

www.fai.org/parachuting <http://www.fai.org/parachuting> then go to documents

the pieces each do a 360 then reform the star

I finally had the chance to make some updates to the Drive site, http://www.DriveVFS.com. From the home page you'll see links to our latest video and more importantly to a dive generator that uses the new dive pool to put together 8-round training sessions (based on 2009 rule changes).

I got through a lot of the site, but know I still have plenty of work to do. The dive generator has only been updated for the open class at the moment, once it is decided what moves and how many rounds are going to be in Advanced, Ill get something up for those teams too.

Hope everyone is having fun and training hard for 2009!

As a follow-on to my last post, you can also get a 2009 version of the rules and dive pool under the Training Tools section of the site.

The pictures shown on the site for the dive pool are old, but if you click to download the printable version, it will contain descriptions of the 2009 changes.

See ya out there!
