The Race for the Season Overalls Heats Up

With three of the four meets completed for the season, the race for the best season overall placings is heating up.  the top placing PRO and Amateur win the title of Season Champion, a sweet plaque, and have their registration and competition jumps paid at USPA Nationals.

We calculate the season overalls by assigning a point value to each place.  1st place is worth 100, second place is worth 98.5 and so on.  At the end of the season your lowest placing is dropped.

2015 pro season after 3In the PRO Class, Curt Bartholomew and Gage Galle have 1st and 2nd locked down.  The race in this class is for the third place slot.  Albert Berchtold is sitting in 3rd with 285 points.  That’s a 7 point lead on Justin Price in fourth and 8 points over  Scott Harper who is also in the hunt for a podium seat this season.  If Justin or Scott can secure a top place and beat Albert by a few spots the podium is still in reach.

2015 Ama season overalls after 3In the Amateur class, Ben Lowe and Rob Harris are sitting in first and second respectively.  They’re likely to keep places on the podium, but which ones will depend on how well they do at meet 4.  Stephen Perry is sitting in third overall and hoping to hold on or move up with a good performance next month.  In fourth place is Pawel Piotrowski who was leading the Amateur class going into meet 3, but unfortunately he took a tumble coming out of the speed course early in the meet and couldn’t finish.  His tumble earned him a broken rib so while he’s still within reach of the podium with a good performance in meet 4, his return this season is questionable.  Also in the hunt is Ross Brilakis currently sitting in fifth.  If we look down the list we also see a sleeping giant in tenth place.  Fraser Feltner with two third place finishes could spring back up to the podium with a strong placement in meet four.  The season is definitely not over for these guys and we’re likely to see some shuffling around of the places at the fourth meet.

The Amateurs are all also looking for a solid finish to the season as the top placing Amateurs will move up to the PRO class at the end of the season.

Cornelia & Curt set new North Carolina records at meet 3.

IMG_1887-2There were a few new records set at the third FLCPA meet last weekend. Cornelia Mihai from Skydive Dubai set a new North Carolina state female distance and speed record at 145.71 meters and 2.502 seconds respectively. Curt Bartholomew set a new general distance record at 147.23 meters and speed record at 2.153 seconds.

With meet 4 and US Nationals less than a month away being held at this same venue, it will be interesting to see if these records stand!

Congratulations!!!

Cornelia Mihai wins meet 3 at Skydive Paraclete

This past weekend Skydive Paraclete XP was host to the third FLCPA meet of the 2015 season. Fourth competitors showed up to give it their all for this competition. It was an even split between the PRO and Amatuer classes with 20 competitors in each category.
Raeford once again pulled out all the stops. There were some problems with the PAC we were supposed to use so we ran the swoop meet out of a CASA!!! That was a first for most of us.
The weather was perfect with a light 4-6 mph tail wind for speed and distance and 6-8mph headwind for zone accuracy. The top spots switched between every round in both categories. Competitors were glued to their phones looking for the updated scores on Control Tower.

IMG_1897-2 IMG_1925-2The Amatuer class was won by veteran skydiver and newcomer to the competition circuit Charlie Mullins. Second place went to Shane Seydel from Hawaii, and Ben Lowe rounded out the top three.

 

The pro class was won by Cornelia Mihai of the Skydive Dubai swoop team. Second place went to Curt Bartholomew while Albert Berchtold rounded out the top three.

We’ve always had a good time at the Raeford meet where instead of having one dedicated coach, we have 20! The Pro/Am competition randomly matches up each pro with an am to work together throughout the meet to help each other. Third place went to Cornelia and Peter Lubrano. Second was Albert and Luis Prinetto. And top spot in the Pro/Am went to Curt and Fraser Feltner.
IMG_1884-2Big thanks to Skydive Paraclete XP for hosting this meet with their great facilities and airlift power that allowed us to finish 7 rounds for 40 competitors by 3:00, Alter Ego our 2015 medal sponsor, and last but not least, a big round of applause for Performance Designs in thanks for their ongoing support of the FLCPA.
Meet 4 will be in just a few weeks!

Curt B & Pawel P take top honors at Meet 1

This past weekend’s FLCPA Meet #1 was a great time down in Zephyrhills, FL. 48 competitors arrived as far as three weeks ahead pawelof the meet. 27 Amateur and 21 Pro class competitors were out for the start of the 2015 season. The Friday practice day was similar conditions to what it would be on Saturday during the competition. curt Bartholomew was on hand Friday as the coach for the meet. This season we moved the free coaching to Friday, so the “tips & tricks” could be given out before the meet rather than during. This change seemed very well received by all the competitors.
gageSaturday morning we started with the briefing and then into the practice and speed rounds. After the practice round completed the winds creeped over the 5 m/s limit for the amateurs so we continued and ran the 2 rounds of speed for the Pro competitors. Curt, Scott Harper, and Gage were out in the lead at the end of the speed event. As the day continued, the winds calmed down enough to get the Amateurs through their two speed runs in a cool 3-4 m/s SE wind. Pawel Piotrowski, Ben Lowe, and Peter Lubrano were off to lead the Amateurs after speed completed.
We switched over to the distance course and managed to get through both Pro distance runs, and one of the Amateur rounds.
Sunday morning began with a 7:30 take off to start the Zone Accuracy event in 1-2m/s downwinds.
Here’s a look at the top seats:
curt bPRO:
1st: Curt Bartholomew
2nd: Scott Harper
3rd: Gage Galle
Amateur:
1st: Pawel Piotrowski
2nd: Rob Harris
3rd: Fraser Feltner
Big Thanks to Skydive City for hosting the meet, Performance Designs as the 2015 League sponsor, Alter Ego for the 2015 medal sponsor, and all the competitors for making the kick off meet a great success! Meet #2 will be March 14-14 at Skydive City. See you there!!

New IPC rule changes coming down the pipeline

In preparation for this year’s FLCPA, we’ve gotten a sneak peak at the proposed IPC CP rule for 2015. They have not been finalized and published yet, but we do intend to run the FLCPA with the new rules as best we can. Below are the highlights that directly affect competitors that we will be implementing for the first meet. These may change a little bit when the finalized rules are published but we’ll adapt when the rules are officially published if necessary. We’ll be covering these at the competitors briefing but to help speed things along please take a look at them before the competition.
1) -PRO class-The max wind speed for ZA is 5 m/s. It remains at 7 m/s for all other events. AMA-wind limits remain at 5 m/s for all events.
2) -For drag distance, a new gate has been added at 70m. Vertical extension applies at this gate and gate 1 only. The gate at 50m will still be there but vertical extension no longer applies.
3) -If you land anywhere between G1 and G5 you will receive a score of 35m.
4) -If you land at G5, you receive a score of 50m.
5) -G5 has been remove from ZA.
6) -There are no more negative zones in ZA. You will only score 1 zone and it will be the zone with the lowest value touched during landing.
7) -Z1=1pt, Z2=11pts, Z3=19pts, Z4=27pts, Z5=34pts, Z6=41pts, Z7=46, CZ=50pts, Z8=25pts, Z9=5pts
8) -In distance and ZA, if surface contact occurs outside of the course and no part of the competitor’s body remains in surface contact within the boundaries of the course, OC applies.
9) -Marker strike penalties have been removed altogether. (but if you plow through the markers and break them, your paying for them per Albert.)
10) -There is a new weight chart for competitors to add weight. Your weight is determined fully dressed and then rounded to the next kilogram. Then you can find your max weight with added weight in the new chart below.From reading it’s unclear if dressed weight includes your rig or not, but for meet 1 we will say dressed weight does NOT include your rig.

Seperate PRO and Amateur classes for 2015

A lot of folks have asked about separating the pro and amateur categories for scoring.  I think we’ve got a big enough turn out to keep things separate so starting this season we’ll run separate score sheets, have separate medal ceremonies, and separate end of Season champions for PRO and Amateur classes.

2015 FLCPA medalsThe medals and end of season plaques have been ordered (for both classes) and with a little help from the 2015 medal sponsor Alter Ego, we’re upgrading the medals this season!  New FLCPA cast medals are in production as we speak!

2015 Medal Sponsor-Alter Ego

We’re happy to announce that our friends at Alter Ego have stepped up for the 2015 season and offered to cover the costs of the medals and plaques this year.  “So many of us alter ego logo1on Alter Ego either started in the FLCPA , or regularly attend the meets to train, we want to give something back.  We want to help the community grow.” said Curt Bartholomew.

Earlier this week I sat down with Curt and we went through books and picked out the medals for this year.  We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised when you see them….

Free coaching moved to Fridays

In the last few years it’s been difficult to secure coaches for all the meets.  Partially because they all want to compete!!!  This year we’re going to try something new and will be moving the coaching to the Friday before the meet.  So rather than getting coaching during the meet, you’ll get the tips and tricks the day before(hopefully allowing you to apply your newly learned skills to win the next day;-)

This also allows us have the top coaches give out their advice, and also compete the next day at the meet.

curtFor meets #1  & #2 we’ll have World Champion Curt Bartholomew of Team Alter Ego pondside on the practice day as the Coach.   Feel free to ask him anything after you land!

Free coaching is for registered competitors so get on it and get registered!  what are you waiting for!?!?!

Paul Rodriguez wins Meet #3 in Raeford

IMG_0445What an amazing weekend at the Raeford Parachute Center!!  Competitors began arriving to North Carolina a week before the meet.  Members of the Canadian CP team ran a week long training camp leading up to the meet with Greg Windmiller and Jay Moledzki coaching the guys.  Friday was jumpable in the morning with 30 knot winds at 1,000 ft.  by Noon the winds had come down to the ground and were extremely turbulent.

Saturday morning had winds out of the west turning between a tail wind and head wind throughout the day.  We began with the practice round and rolled straight into the speed event.  A quartering head wind kept the times above 2.8 even for the fastest competitors with most above 3.0 seconds.  Curt Bartholomew took the fastest time of the Pro competitors winning 15 minutes of tunnel time compliments of Paraclete XP.

IMG_1341By 11:00am we had rolled into the distance event.  A head wind of 7-10 mph kept the North Carolina distance record safe at 128 meters.  But not by much! Curt picked up another 15 minutes in the tunnel by securing the longest distance at 127 meters.

Zone Accuracy was once again the great equalizer and definately shuffeled the score board. At the end of the day Paul Rodriguez was in the top seat with 498 of 600 points. Curt Bartholomew followed with 478 points .  And to round out the top 3 was Mr Gage Galle with 471 points.  The top 3 took home FLCPA medals, and some nice cash.

The top 3 Amateur competitors took home 15 minutes each from Paraclete XP.  Chris Howard was 1st, John Nolan was the second place winner, and 3rd amateur was Jeannie Bartholomew.

IMG_1530

In usual Raeford style, we brought back the Pro/AM event.  This is where we randomly match up a pro competitor with an amatuer to work together during the meet.  They discuss strategy, conditions, and help each other through the meet.  At the end of the competition we add up their scores and declare a winner.  This year the Raeford Pro/AM was won by the team of  Gage Galle and Jeannie Bartholomew.

IMG_1433On a more somber note, Canadian competitor Philippe DeBlois passed away due to injuries suffered during an accident in the beginning of the week. On one of his first jumps when he arrived at Raeford it appears he may have unknowingly  lost his hand hold on his toggle when transfering from front risers to his rear risers.  To open the closing ceremony Raeford Avation launched three of their aircraft and flew them over the dz in a missing man formation.  Greg Windmiller of the Golden Knights said a few words about Philippe. The competitors and crowd observed a moment of silence.

Big thanks to our judges, Raeford Avation, Mirage, PD, Paraclete XP, and Sunpath for their support of the meet.

In 2015 Raeford Parachute Center will be host to the USPA CP Nationals.  With this meet, they’ve once again shown they’ve got what it takes to host a top notch competition.  “Thats how we roll!”

Curt Bartholomew wins Meet #2

This past weekend was the second meet IMG_7276of the 2014 FLCPA season.  Fourty competitors arrived from around the world and across the US to compete.  This meet brought Fifteen amateur and twenty-five pro competitors to Skydive City in Z-Hills.  Many competitors began arriving a week or two ahead of time for some winter training in sunny Florida.  By Friday morning the PD & Mirage tents were up pondside and most competitors did 4-7 practice jumps on friday.

The weather was wonderful on Saturday reaching 80 degrees. 7:30 AM came pretty early(and dark too) when competitors arrived for the morning safety briefing.   We began with the Speed event after the briefing concluded and exit orders were finalized.  Times getting down into the 2.4 second range were seen.  After a short course change we continued into the distance event with a quartering tail wind from the southeast.  Congratulations to Gage Galle from the PD Factory Team who set a new Florida state distance record at 139.20 meters.

IMG_7061The coach for this meet was Ian Bobo from the PD Factory Team.  Ian set up his white board near the end of the course and was handing out tips and tricks as quickly as he could to each competitor.

 

We had an injury on touchdown by French competitor David Maleze who was having a great meet.  Unfortunately a rough landing caused a fracture on his lower leg.  Here’s to a quick recovery for David.

IMG_7241

 

The late afternoon brought changing conditions for the zone accuracy event.  There’s a reason this event is known as the great equalizer!  There were certainly a lot of place changes in these last two rounds, except for the top spot which was strongly held by Curt Bartholomew throughout the meet.   At the end of the day, Curt was standing in first place, Greg Windmiller from the US Army Golden Knights was in second, and Julien Guiho was in third.

Big thanks to our judges, skydive city, our sponsors PD & Mirage, and all our volunteers who helped make this meet happen.  We couldn’t have done it without you.

The 3rd meet of the 2014 season will be April 5-6 in Raeford North Carolina.  See you there!

Project Orange: Lord of the Strings Events

LIVE SCORING HERE

 

Each day during Lord of the Strings we’ll be doing a new and fresh bracket. The evening prior we’ll select who will compete against who in a random draw to be held at the Bird House(for those new to ZHills, that’s the bar.)  We’ll select the names in random from a hat, so each day you’ll be starting off competing against someone new.

Here’s a list of the events we’ll be doing for each bracket.  There will be one bracket for distance, one for speed, and one for accuracy.

Speed:

Dragging Speed Carve- We’ll back up the entry gate to put the first 4 gates on the water and we’ll replace the inside buoys with balls on the water.  You’ll be timed from entry to exit, but you’ll be required to drag a foot(or hand, or head, or knee) through gates one,two, three, and four.
6 meter wide speed carve-It’s just like it sounds, we’ve made the course skinnier. Keeping in the course while not taking it out will be the challenge here.

Distance:

Long distance-aka ‘old school’ distance.  5 ft entry and on vertical extension at 50 meters.
Carving distance-it looks like a speed course, but there’s no timers.  competitors must stay below the 5 foot markers until the last gate then they fly for the longest distance they can make.
In lane drag-There is no entry gate in this event. There are zones the entire duration of the pond and you choose how deep you want to set down on the water.  The more water distance you drag, the higher your score.  But don’t forget to save enough to exit on the land, a ‘chow’ will score you a zero.

Accuracy:

Narrowing water gates- Gate 1 will be the standard 10meter wide.  As you drag through the course the gates will become narrower until you reach the gate 4 balls which will be only 2 meters apart.

Hula Hoop Accuracy-Zones 1-4 are the same.  Zone 5-7=-17. Zone 8=-36. Hulahoop=75. Stand-up rule applies.  If you drag all the water and stand up in the hoop, that’s 125 points!
