Amendment to Canopy Piloting Competition Rules for 2013

Frees 1

CP-Competition Rules 2013 re-issued to re-assign Neutral Zone to value of "minus 20 points"

 
" The IPC CP Committee has re-issued the 2013 Competition Rules and the version originally posted on the  IPC/FAI website may be discarded as no longer being valid.
 
The IPC Bureau has approved one change: The Neutral Zone in Accuracy has been assigned a point value  of -20 (negative value similar to Zones  7 and 8)  rather than a point value of zero.
 
In addition, with assistance from Buzz Bennett, Chair of the IPC Rules and Regulations Committee, the  Rules have been edited for clarity of grammar and phrasing without any impact on the technical intent and application of the Rules, previously approved by the IPC Plenary"

2013 Rankings in Canopy Formations

 

mondial-2012-canopy-formation
The Mondial in Dubai saw the largest participation ever in a Canopy Formations World Championships, with new players entering the competition, particularly in the 2-Way Sequential event.  However the rankings are dominated by the three “big” players, USA (1st) France (2nd) and Russia (3rd) with Austrialia close behind.

With a First Category Event only being held every other year, persistence pays and there is no change in the top 3 places, even though France swept the board with gold medals in Dubai.

Ukraine, Italy, the Czech Republic and Argentina entered the competition for the first time.

In 4-Way Rotations Russia retains 1st place, with France 2nd and Belarus 3rd, so no change; but both China and Argentina enter for the first time.

4-Way Sequential had low participation in Dubai, unlike all the other disciplines – again dominated by the “big” players with USA retaining their 1st position, and France overtaking Russia to 2nd place, leaving Russia in 3rd.

The latest ranking lists can be found under "Documents"-  "Rankings" - "2013".
