    Hi Jarno,

    I heard that there is a big way around this same time in the Czech Republic, but I don't know if the exact dates have been set. It might work out for some people in the US to attend both events, if they are around the same time. Do you know anything about this big way?

    Thanks,

    Purple Mike

    Gransee (the performance competition) is 3 days after the planned dates for the Wingsuit Competition, so for overseas people, already a good chance to go all-out in Europe.

    I havent heard anything about a EU bigway as of now.
    Last year there was also some Spanish invitational thing many people asked about about, but I also never heard details on what/where/who.
    So you probably know more than I do about that one:)

    I do know there is an invitational formation event planned in Belgium for later in the season. Specifics for that one will follow. But the aim for that one wont be 'record' though, but just 'visualy pleasing' and seeing how tight it can be flown (spacing it within/max one meter).

    I update the boogie calendar on wingsuitnews.com this weekend, to show the EU scedule in more detail.

    If you know of planned weekends or boogies, let me know per PM or email to news@flylikebrick.com

    For the wingsuit competition, the above dates are set (many people mailed, liking those dates, none against), so hoping to see everyone there for the competition!

    If you have a team or need teammates, give a shout!

    I am looking for a buddy to train with and attend the competition. Since I travel a lot in Germany, Belgium and Netherlands it does not matter much where you come from. Let's just meet a few weekends and fly together!

    PM me if interested!

    wingsuitcompetition.com has been updated with the Divepool, and several other additions.

    And having seen some video this past weekend of the Spanish 'bad boys' in action during some of their training jumps, awesome!
    I can only comment saying that this years competition is going to be intense, and the flying you will see is going to be beautifull!

    Next to the live scoring for the web, we will also try and upload the rounds to the website as soon as they have been completed.

    Looking forward to September!

    Check it out!

    Just a small addition, as we got some questions with regards to the divepool.
    By lottery (drawing em out of a hat, with each figure in it twice) we will determine the final rounds.

    So an example competition could be:

    round 1: A C (repeat)
    round 2: B B (repeat)
    round 3: F A (repeat)
    round 4: D E (repeat)
    round 5: C E (repeat)
    round 6: free round

    So everyone can practice the figures. But the actual order wont be known untill a day before the competition. So pratice, practice, practice.

    And any USA flyers looking at coming to the comp this year?

    My understanding is that the the Euro wingsuit big way camp is to be in the Czech Republic on 5-10 September. There will be FS bigway too. Initial details at http://raisethesky.org/events/

    And more news...

    We are currently looking at also having the DZ open a few days prior to the competition for practice jumps. Thursday/Friday as a given. If we have more teams wanting to train a few days before, let us know so we can arrange everything more specific in terms of lift capacity. I will also ask Giovanni to post more information on hotels and dz sleeping facilities.

    And we have our first Russian team with 'Defy Gravity'! The list of teams is growing fast!

    As pointed out by an attentive Russian reader...it should read 3rd edition. Though we are of course, also very 3D...

    Can I play the non-native speaker card?Tongue

    i think the chances are good that we FlyByWire Wingsuit-TEAM can join, too.
    any tipps for travelling down there from the middle of germany?

    after the comp we can rent a big bus to travel with the whole crowd to the WoG Comp. in Berlin ;-)

    Sweet!
    If you have further team details (2x performer and 1x camera flyer name) shoot me an email, so I can ad the infoSmile

    And a small misc. comment. If there are enough teams, and when prefered. We have the ability to use a simpler divepool for a beginner/intermediate class.

    Though last year, some of the Italian teams with low jump numbers and hardly any practice at all even managed to do all the jumps quite well. I you have wishes/ideas on this subject...here is the place to tell us!


    And about your suggestion, I wouldnt be a bad idea to maybe see about renting a big bus, and driving from a central german location to Italy. And than on to Gransee.
    Would be a really cool group thing to doCool

    If you have a car available, driving is a good option. Terni is just above Rome and you can take the very nice Italian A1 autostrada through Italy.

    Last year, hardly any team had real practice (despite good intentions:), and for some Italian crews it was even their first jumps together...so even that shouldnt be too much of a limiting factor...though of course practice makes perfect..

    And some news!

    The website has been updated with a nice PDF document with the more elaborate version of the competition rules.

    And a few new team-announcements (For some of the 'pro' teams still not definitive, depending on training ability the coming months).

    Already up to 10/12 teams now.
    Also hoping for Babylon Freefly and some of the other pro-teams to enter the competition.
    Its going to be some beautifull flying. Thats for sure. And the post-competition flying will be mighty fine. Thats for sure!
