8-Way Speed Competition – need formation ideas!
8-Way Speed Competition – need formation ideas! Belly and Head Down August 21, 2010 Skydive Arizona
This comp is all about building a formation as fast as your team can without taking any grips out the door. Teams can either enter as a headdown or a belly team.
Organizers Terry Gardner and Amy Chmelecki are looking for new formations for this year’s event. The formations have to be able to be built as a headdown formation and a belly formation.
To get an idea of what we are talking about, check out the links below to last year’s formations.
If you have any formation ideas please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are the rules!
• This event will be 5 rounds • A team consists of 8 flyers and one camera flyer • A team can enter as a belly team or a head down team • There are 5 formations in the dive draw • Each team will exit from 13,000 feet • Maximum amount of working time is 35 seconds • No grips can be taken for exit • Competitors must exit from behind the door jam • Once any one team member (excluding the camera flyer) passes the door jamb the clock will start • From the time the team exits to the time the formation is built will be timed • The formation grips must be shown with control on the video for the clock to stop • A judge will judge and score the video • If a team does not complete the formation within the working time they will receive a 36 for that round • Each team’s times for all five rounds will be averaged • The team with the lowest average time wins • If there is a tie, the team with the lowest time in any one round wins
Please stay posted as the new formations are developed!
