07.30 hrs:  Wheels off start this morning with the first load of Performance Flying Round 2 of the Speed task.  The aim for today is to try and complete all tasks for round 2 of Performance Flying and 3 rounds of Acrobatic Flying starting with Round 4 a free routine then moving to the compulsory sequence Round 5 consisting of C - "Revolutions" / D - "Roll Over".  The sun is shining with a cloudless blue sky and the atmosphere on the drop zone is great.  Everyone is settled into their tasks and the routine of competition is becoming comfortable.

11.45 hrs:  Following a technical meeting called by the Chief Judge and Meet Director to explain the reason for the jump order and why it was not rotating other then within each aircraft load.  In other words, the first lift of a round/task would always be in the same order.  There had been complaints from some competitors to being on the first load each day and the decision had been taken to explain how the rules were applied at a World Championships.  This communication effort was appreciated by the competitors.

Buzz Bennett was also able to announce the posting of the results for the end of Round 2 of the Dynamic Flying Speed Task.
