Canopy Formation Competitors - this is for you

4-wayInternational CF Competition from your home DZ

Following the discussion at the Competitor's Meeting after the Mondial in Chicago, the CF Committee is pleased to confirm that the Plenary has approved the plan to hold the CF WebChallenge again. With the help of the IPC Secretary, Susan Dixon, the committee members are setting up the dropbox site which will host the CF WebChallenge.

The CF Webchallenge will allow teams to compete in any (or all) current FAI CF events, 2-way sequential, 4-way sequential and 4-way rotations. In addition, we are very pleased to provide you with the opportunity to compete in 8-way again! We know of at least one (ex-)competitor who is very much looking forward to re-building his old 8-way team and all the fun and formations they had. If the take-up of 8-way is sufficiently strong, we will consider re-introducing it at First Category Events.
