Judges! Can't Post

Hey boys and girls! In case you haven't heard, October 5-7 Skydive City in Zephyrhills is hosting the PD Tvier Pair Swooping Competition. The very first of its kind! An entire TEAM swooping event! If you want the best seats in the house for this competition, come help us judge! We need judges especially for Friday and Saturday. If you can only do one day, that's fine. No prior experience is necessary, even non-jumpers or former jumpers can judge. PM me here or email me at missbrz@gmail.com for more details.

It pays in the experience of getting the best seats possible to see the best swoopers in the world do their thing.

What's "Tvier"?

It's some fancy foreign word that apparently means "two" or "pair". They just thought it sounded cool Tongue What it means though, is that all of the competitors will compete and score as a two person team. So two people will be swooping for each run. Details on the different events at this comp are listed here


ETA: thanks to the mods for the sticky! Wink

Thank you for that explanation. But then, doesn't that mean that "tvier pair" is redundant, like saying "pair pair"? I'm confused...

yes. I put the pair in b/c most people don't know what "Tvier" means. Technically redundant but I'm ok with that. Tongue

Re: [missbrz] Judges! [In reply to] Can't Post

So do they swoop at the exact same time (like, synchronized swooping)?

Yup! the Distance and Speed will be side by side. The Kris Kross will be swooping at the same time in opposite directions. The free style will depend on the trick they choose. SmileCool It's going to be awesome!

I hope there are some qualifications on the participants to make sure this goes well and doesn't kill anyone.

They all had to be established pro swoopers and all teams has to be pre approved. Here's the list of teams in case you're still wondering:

Shake and Bake-Matt Shull & Dan Raymond

Wilbur and Orville-Pete Schwartz & Sven Jseppi

Old School-Shannon Pilcher & JC Colclasure

Team Mohawk-Ian Drennan & Jay Moledzki

Slipstream 1-Scott Roberts & Brian McNenney

Alter Ego-Curt Bartholomew & Nick Batsch

Eeak!-Ian Bobo & Jessica Edgeington

Team Basement-Pablo Hernandez & Tom Dellibac

Full Power-Gage Galle & John Zuliani

Okay, so the official name is "Tvier Swooping", which no one will understand. So the better way of expressing it is something like "Tvier (pair) Swooping". Got it. Sheesh, why don't they just give it a name to start with that makes sense. Something like "Synchronized Swooping". Sounds cool. Sounds dangerous.
