5th FAI World CP Championships, Z'hills, USA - Starts tomorrow

5thCP logo
All set for the start tomorrow - the final registration is 28 teams (i.e. Nations) with a total of 105 competitors.  Inevitably there will be changes to the pre-registered delegations, but these will be brought up to date and have pictures added as the day goes on.

Five South American countries are represented here, thanks to the work of COLPAR in encouraging this discipline and organising events and competitions.

Good luck to all competitors, have a great, exciting and safe World Championships.  This will the first time a Parachuting First Category event is covered completely by an on line TV company - so make sure you tune in one line to www.skydive-tv.com - once the competition is underway.  Feedback on how you feel about this coverage would be greatly appreciated as it could form a future publicity arm for IPC and Frist Category Events.

Please Note that a modified Bulletin No 1 has now been issued and published on this web site.  The following explanation is given by the Organiser and the Bureau:

The Official Bulletin nº 1 for the 5th FAI World Canopy Piloting Championships, published 1st July 2014, has been amended, due to a bank transfer procedure modification. The only modification to the prior-published Bulletin is in paragraph 12 regarding Bank Transfer procedures. The remainder of the Bulletin remains exactly as in the earlier version.

The reason for this amendment was that there were some attempts to defraud, using the bank details published in the 1st July version, so now the Organiser want intending participants to contact the Organiser for bank transfer details.
