The 1st European CF Spring Camp 2023 in EVORA and also the 2023 CUMULUS CONVENTION
We need to improve our skills and for that purpose we will have our first CF Spring Camp this year.
In the beginning, we thought of a drop zone in Italy for this camp, but unfortunately we could not find one that was able to satisfy our needs. Ampuria is not safe looking at the wind conditions, and so we decided to go to Portugal to Evora where they have two Caravans for 18 jumpers each and nice weather. The Qatari CF crew has already used this place for successful training.
The main intent for this camp is to start flying 8-way and 16-way formations most of the time to give everyone a lot of practice approaching and docking. Towards the end of the camp we might even go for 25-ways to practice for possible European Sequential Records in September in the Czech Republic.
That of course can only happen if we have enough current CF jumpers who have the skill level that we ask for. Last year the average skill level was rather disappointing (maybe to the end, I will certainly not consider organizing any kind of record activity if not enough people have show up at our camps and performed well enough. We will see how this first camp will have been attended to plan ahead.
