EC's & WC's in FS, AE, CF, SP, Saarlouis, Germany. The Party's Over

Monday, 14th August 2017

The party finished late on Saturday night as everyone celebrated or commiserated with each other at the end of a tiring championships due to the weather.  But lots of thanks are owed to all who made this competiton week possible and worked hard to make it as enjoyable as possible to compete at.  Who knows, Patrik Lauer did hint at hosting a World Championships and maybe it will be third time lucky with the weather behaving normally at sunny Saarlouis.

17.00hrs:   Prizegiving

Congratulations to our new European Champions and World Cup winners:  follow the links for the different discipline Medal Tables, FS, AE, CF, SP.

Helmut Bastuck took to the stage to start the proceedings for the Medal awarding ceremony, expressing his disappointment in not being able to complete all scheduled rounds. He went on to suggest that the blame fell at the feet of Patrik Lauer, County Commisioner of Saarlouis, who had promised fine weather at the Opening Ceremony!  Helmut invited Patrik to address the audience, where after apologising profusely for his failed promise, he received a rapturous applause when he said he'd donate 50 litres of beer by way of compensation!

21.00hrs:  It's been an action-packed evening as the clouds finally lifted a little after 17.00hrs when it was decided to put the two local German 4-Way teams on a lift to ascertain the conditions. Thankfully a successful exercise which allowed the competition to recommence after what had been a truly miserable day. The last lift - no 28 - took off at 20.45hrs and we now have completed Round 4 in 4-Way Open where Hayabusa have edged ahead of VR4 France by 1 point, 102 points to 101.

EC's & WC's in FS, AE, CF, SP, Saarlouis, Germany. Opening Ceremony

FAI flag

The flag is flying, the anthem has been played and the European Championships and World Cups in Formation Skydiving, Artistic Events, Canopy Formation and Speed Skydiving declared formally open.  This was the end of a good opening ceremony - unpolitical, short, good speeches with humour and fun music.  Competitors gathered a short street away from the main square where they were presented with their country name carrier and their National Flags, and were entertained by the amazing music of a local German steel drum band, playing Brazilian Samba rhythms.

What's a World Cup without rain?  True to its historic roots low cloud and rain engulfed the airfield this morning, so it wasn't very long before the Meet Director, Dr Rainer 'Exi' Hoenle announced that everyone was stood down till 12.00hrs. Despite the weather these girls lit up the surrounding area with their infectious smiles!
