I've created an event on Facebook and invited a bunch of people, to inform those that don't read dz.com regularly...

http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=64701780900

You can put yourself on the guest list there if you want...

Also, if you're interested, but don't have any team mates yet, let us know in this thread, and we can maybe match you up with other people looking for teammates.

Cheers

There are also several Italian teams from who we havent received names yet. I think we'll get around a dozen or so teams in total.

I saw..."The actual jumps/rounds will be announced online (in animated form) around June/Juli 2009"
any news on that?
Life is a series of wonderful opportunities,
brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.

Judging
There wil be more info on the (weighted) scoring system soon.
But the short version is that points wil be awarded based on the following 3 factors.

  • points/score - how many docks flown
  • cameraflying - how does it look
  • estetic beauty - how well do the performers fly in terms of performance and accuracy (judged on artistic vallue)

    Important
  • Each aspect of the flying is part of the score. Thus also making the camera-flying an important factor.
  • There wil be a working altitude of 12.000ft down to 4.000ft
  • Docks must be held for a minimum of 1 second (25 frames pal/30 frames ntsc). A bust on a dock (be it to short, or video missing the grip) wil result in no score for further points, untill the missed point is made again.
  • All teams must fly one single suit for the duration of the competition.
  • Each team is free to start with the competition jumps anywhere between thursday and sunday. But must announce the start before their first round (and is not allowed to make other practice jumps in between). To keep things exiting and further the chance at completing the whole competition, we do prefer all teams starting at the same time/day (friday the 11th).

    Rounds
    The two flyers are to be named flyer A and B.

    Round 1 - Up and Overs
  • Dock A - B
  • Switch sides (up and over)

  • Dock B- A
  • Switch sides (up and over)

    repeat

    Round 2 - Revolutions
  • Dock A - B
  • Full rotation flying A over/under flyer B

  • Dock A - B
  • Full rotation flying B over/under flyer A

    repeat

    Round 3 - Rolls
  • Dock A - B
  • Barrelroll flyer A

  • Dock A - B
  • Barrelroll flyer B

    repeat

    Round 4 - Roll over
  • Dock A - B
  • Barrelroll flyer A, Switch sides (up and over)*

  • Dock B- A
  • Barrelroll flyer B, Switch sides (up and over)*

    repeat
    *barrelrolls and up and over may be combined into one move

    Round 5 - Showcase
    Free routine for each team to show their individual skills. Show something new, funny or impressive.
    Scored out of 20 points (in addition to usual points for camera and style).
    Jumps wil be judged on flying/skills between exit and seperation, within the same frame/setup of the previous round.
    No inflatable animals, camera/body mounts or other props.

    Prizes
    We wil have several prizes, and wil be awarding a 1st, 2nd and 3d place national (all Italian teams) and International (for which the Italians wil of course also be fighting!).

    Be there or be squareB|
