Vintage Weekend Teuge The Netherlands October 3 & 4. Can't Post

Following the great success of the previous years we again organize a Vintage weekend at Dutch National Skydiving Center Teuge (The Netherlands) the weekend of October 3 and 4.

This weekend well jump round and triangular canopies ranging from the historical military rounds to the latest sport rounds; Paracommander (all versions), Papillon, Olympic, Russian UT-15, Sierra, Starlite, Thunderbow, Paradactyl, Delta Wing II, etc., etc.,... Most canopies are already assembled and packed into modern sport rigs with 3-ring release and square reserve, ready to jump. Some are still in their original configuration with chest reserves.

Parallel to the regular jumping well try to break our round and triangular CF (crw) record, a 4-way stack, by building a 6-way stack and well also try to build a 4-way diamond.

DZ Teuge is about 1 hour by train from Amsterdam airport.

If youre interested send me an e-mail at Henny@parashoot.nl

Wow,
I had a black church window PC just like that one back in 1975. Wish I still had it.

Because of the CF record attempts Ive packed most canopies into regular accuracy rigs with 3-ring release system. Our goal is a 4-way diamond and a stack bigger than 4.

The attached pictures show most canopies weve so far. There will be several more (like DeltaWing II) but we dont have pictures yet. Im still looking for canopies that are not on the list like 28 Jumbo, RW PC, Double keel Paradactyl, Piglet, CrossBow, Parasled, PTCH, RL-8, etc.

Hopefully the weather will cooperate like last year. Itll be great fun.

Hi Nicholas, No this event has been re-scheduled to beginning next season due to several reasons. One is my broken upper arm.

It was a good decision because the weather was far from ok for jumping rounds that weekend.

Grtzz,

Henny

For what it's worth: I remember a skyfull of PCs and other round canopies looked cooler and more colorful then a skyfull of squares ever will. A DC-3 load putting 40 in the air at once was brilliant. With the great names of Invader, Challenger, Gazelle, Churchwindow (both Black and California), Red Baron, Blue Max, 007, etc, even the color patterns had cool names. Now, "stock color" or "demo color" just doesn't make it even if there are 100+ in the sky.

Hi Henny

Please keep us updated with the date for the next vintage event in Teuge, being from Bavaria I could plan to attend if I know it early enough.

thanks
Uwe
