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!”

Season Finale is coming!!!

Its coming up quickly!!!  The final meet of the 2014 season at Skydive City will be held on May 17th & 18th.  This meet will likely take both days due to high attendance.

After 4 meets Curt Bartholomew has a strong hold on the first place overall in the pro class followed by Paul Rodriguez, Albert Berchtold and Gage Galle.  In the Amatuer class it’s still a race for the top seat.  Brandon Coates is in the lead, but Jeannie Bartholomew, and Brad Moon aren’t far behind!

Here’s a list of those who have preregistered for the Season Finale!

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!

Curt wins FLCPA #5 at the Farm

IMG_1328-2The season finale at Skydive the Farm was nothing short of awesome. Seventeen competitors were in attendance for this nine round meet. Two speed, two dragging distance, two old school distance without the drag, two zone accuracy, and one round of hula-hoop accuracy.

The meet began on Friday afternoon with the speed event.  It was great to see all the competitors improvements over the season.  After two rounds of speed there were only 3 nonscoring runs on the board which showed that this was going to be a tough meet to place well.  By the end of the first day we had completed speed and the dragging distance events.  The morning brought calm winds so we started out with the Zone accuracy events.  After two rounds of the normal zone accuracy we did a round of “hula-hoop” accuracy.  We replaced zones 5-8 with all negative xones and put a hula hoop in the middle which was worth 75 landing points making your total possible score 125 if you tried for the hoop.  No one sucessfully pulled it off, but a few tried.  The event was certainly fun and the change of pace was a good time.  We finished up with two rounds of “old school” distance with no water drag.
We finished up around five o’clock on Saturday.  At the end of the nine rounds Curt Bartholomew took first, Greg Windmiller in second, and Jessica Edgeington in third. Big thanks to all the Judges, Hans Paulsen for being awesome, and our league supporters Performance Designs and Adrenaline Obsession.

Curt takes meet #3 in Raeford

Curt BThis past weekend the third FLCPA meet of the 2013 season took place at Raeford Parachute Center.  Thirty nine competitors(20 pro, 19 amateur) began arriving a week before the scheduled meet to begin training.

The meet began with the distance event in a pretty strong headwind from the north and continued with downwind zone accuracy into the newly placed pea pit. After the completion of zone accuracy, the wind turned a full 180 degrees leaving a tail wind from the south for the final two rounds of speed.

This years meet completed in record time finishing seven rounds by around 3:00.  The Adrenaline Obsession record challenge saw two records set in the female category by Cornelia Mihai from Skydive Dubai.  The general North Carolina speed and distance records were a bit too much to reach this year, so Tommy Dellibac will get to hang onto his records for a little bit longer.

kyle schoonoverAs we did last year in Raeford, we held a  pro/am competition as part of the meet. Each amateur was paired up with a Pro to work together as a team.  At the end of the meet, the pairs scores were averaged to give the team a score.  This years pro/am  competition was won by Kyle Schoonover and Rob Wallace.

The overall standing had Greg Windmiller in third, Nick Batsch in second, and world champ Curt Bartholomew taking first place.

ShaggyBig thanks to Raeford Aviation, Performance Designs, Adrenaline Obsession, Mirage, and last but not least, our amazing Judge crew.

FLCPA season begins in 1 month!!

IMG_8157We’ve made it to 2013 and this years FLCPA season is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever before.  The schedule is out, medals have been ordered, and registration pages  are up!

Will our 2012 FLCPA Champion Tommy Dellibac come back to defend his title.  If he does, it won’t be a walk in the park by any means for Dellibac.  Current world champion Curt Bartholomew is looking to take the title from Dellibac in 2013, and he’s not the only one.

US Army Golden Knight Greg Windmiller is coming off a rough performance in 2012 which for a powerhouse like Windmiller isn’t something he’s going to take laying down.  We can certainly expect him to come at 2013 with everything he’s got.

Pre-registration-There’s a few things you’ll notice on the meet #1 event registration page. First is that the member registration is $160 and the nonmember registration is only $95. Why? The first meets member reg includes $75 meet registration and the one time $85 yearly league membership.  Member registration is only $75 for all the other meets. Pre registration closes mid-day on the Thursday before the meet.

Regular/late registration for the 2013 season is $115 per meet.  Last year we did very well at working out exit orders on the Friday before the meet because people pre-registered.  This got us going way quicker on Saturday mornings.  So much so that I want to make the financial incentive for pre-registering even greater.

Do you forget to preregister?  If your planning on attending all 5 meets and don’t want to worry about remembering to pre-register before every meet, I’ve included a full season registration option on meet #1.  Register once, and your set for the full season.  $75x5meets + $85 membership = $460 total.  To keep it neat and clean, this is only available to those attending the full season.  If you are planning on attending 4 meets or less, you can simply register for the meets individually.

Now get out there and start practicing!
