    VRW - Update

    Very good question. I actually have been chatting with one of the admins about making a VRW / VFS section in They didn't like the idea of adding a section because of administrative purposes, but agreed that we should do something. One idea they had was to simply change the title of this section from "Freeflying" to "Freeflying / VRW" Thoughts? ___________________________

    VRW - Update

    Hello VRW Fliers! It's been a while since our last update so here are the highlights for this go around: * IPC holds Web Challenge. Deadline July 31. * USPA Nationals set for October at Spaceland. * Australia holds Nationals as 3 teams battle it out. * Skydive Elsinore holds a comp in 2 weeks, are you going? * The World Record 100 Try Outs next weekend. * Is your team heading to the Czech Republic for the World Cup? * Where will the 2010 World Parachuting Championships be? * New Media, Blue Skies Magazine, do you have a copy? IPC holds online competition with prizes The competition will run from May 1st 2009 until July 31st 2009. This is a web based, 3 round challenge. With any new discipline it is difficult for teams to gain competitive experience, and also to learn 'how to' from more experienced teams in other parts of the world. The idea of the Web Challenge is to give an opportunity to address both issues, without undue expense or travel requirements. Three rounds of competition will be posted on the FAI web site. Teams can enter as many times as they like by submitting the visual evidence of their jump onto the Challenge Web Site. Each entry will be viewed by the panel of FAI Judges, using a 'virtual' judging method co-ordinated between them, so that they replicate as closely as possible normal judging conditions. The Winning Team will receive 5 Optimas with prizes for second and third place as well. To download the 3 round draw click here. Register your team now! 2009 USPA Nationals are a go at Spaceland Everyone please take notice! The dates have been set and the format from last years Nationals has changed.

So draw them out, take a picture, fax them in, whatever you have to do in order to get them to us and we will include them in the voting process.

  14. You know....I was a bit bummed. I let them get to the point where they sent me the fedex and got the fraudulant checks. Then I called FedEx to have them put a hold on the account. Turns out the account was opened online just a few days prior with a phone # that didn't work and most likely will just be closed once the bill isn't paid. I was hoping to at LEAST cost them $10 in fedex charges.....but no, they screw FedEx too......oh well...lesson learned.

  15. I'm thrilled to see a VRW update in the RW forum. It fits. Thanks, that's why I posted this here. After all, what we are doing is Relative Work. I wanted to make sure that the traditional RW world knows that the majority of the freefly community has been itching for more structure and more "black and white" judging. As the US Artistic Events team manager for '04 and '06, the biggest complaint I got was judging and how things would change from one jump to the next. VRW makes is simple. Were all of the grips on video, yes/no, next point. And yes, we are also NOT trying to re-invent the wheel, lots of RW coaches should be VERY excited about this as your potential customer base has just been drastically increased. Learn the VRW dive pool and you can get a LOT more business....... Just my $0.02.... ___________________________
