Today started with cloud and rain but by 10.00 the skies had cleared, the sun came out, and all was set for the Tandem Jump of the Minister of Sport for the Chuvash Repuiblic, Sergey Milnikov and his tandem master, Jiri Blaska, the FAI Controller. The Minister really enjoyed the experience and thanked everyone involved. Given the support for this competition shown by his Ministry it is nice to be able to share our enthusiasm for the sport in such a real way.
Today we continue with official practice jumps from the two Turbolets and two Antonovs.
By mid-day the rain was back and we have grey cloud cover. After lunch the sun was out again and we continued with official practice jumps for the Accuracy and Style competitors.

This is a hint of the welcome that awiats the teams still to arrive for the European Championships and World Cups in Freefall Style and Accuracy Landing. Official arrival and registration plus training jumps start tomorrow. Many teams are already here and have taken advantage of the good weather to get in some training jumps on this DZ. In total 17 Delegations have pre-registered with a total of 155 competitors. We shall see the final make up of the teams once they have all arrived. The judges are in place and have spent the last couple of days coming up to speed for this year's First Category Event. The Jury is also present, thankfully with little to do!
