Black Mountain swoop comp Can't Post

Hello!
The annual and famous Belgian swoopcomp, held at Black Mountain is this year going to happen in May.

The dates:

Thursday the 17th of May we have a training day where we can start jumping at 0900hrs till 2000 hrs in the evening.

Friday 18 and Saturday 19 competition, we have one training round and nine competition rounds.

This is it: 3 Distance, 3 Speed and 3 Zone Accuracy on our nice pond...

Sunday is our spare-day... hopefully we don't need it but if we have to we plan to jump till 1400hrs for the competition.

But if we can, we try to finish all rounds by Saturday evening, followed by a nice barbecue and some nice cold Belgian beer, music and some more beer ...


The cost of the competition is 275 Euro's.

This includes 10 jumps (1 training jump, 9 competition jumps) and a barbecue on Saturday evening.

Competitors who do register before the 30th of April get a 25 Euro discount and have to pay a further 200 Euro's at the manifest.

The 50 Euro's registration is not refundable and covers the expenses that have to be made by the organisation. Sorry for that one.

If you still want to join us, click on this link, fill in the blanks and the first step in scoring the gates is completed:

You can pay the 50 registration on the following account:

Para Centrum Vlaanderen VZW
Nieuwe Dijkstraat 44
B-3290 Schaffen

IBAN BE69 0354 3267 2278
Bic : GEBABEBB

Jump prices for the training day are 14 Euro/jump, exit altitude 5000 to 6000 ft.

Jump prices during the competition are also 14 Euro/jump and will be refunded if they are not completed.

25 of each competitor goes to prize money, as usual this competition is more about the fun and less about the money...

The competion rules in general will be the FAI rules, exceptions will be made well clear before the start of the competition. The rules are the new rules, but non X braced don't have to drag the entry gate for distance.

In Belgium, an AAD is mandatory for all jumps, but for the swooptraining and the swoopcompetition swoopers are allowed to jump without AAD when they sign a waiver.

Funjumps from 13000 ft without AAD are not allowed!

Lodging is possible in a tent on the dropzone or the airfield, and there are also some alternatives nearby, ranging in price from cheap to expensive.

If you need more info, please send us an e-mail.

Hope to see you soon,





Black Mountain Swoop Team
