STF to host 2012 USPA Canopy Piloting Nationals

Earlier this month Hans Paulsen and I made the long haul up to Nashua, NH for the USPA summer board of directors meeting.  In hand Hans held a 13 page document that detailed how he would hope to host the Canopy Piloting Nationals in 2 years.  On Friday afternoon we met with the USPA competition committee to discuss his proposal and answer any questions or concerns they had about the dropzone, its facilities, and the proposed event. 

Saturday STF’s Bid would be presented to the full Board of Directors.  To prepare for what Hansy thought would be extremely stressful presentation, we decided to test his nerves by having him hold two scolding hot Main Lobsters while I fumbled around with the camera.  I don’t think Hans found it as entertaining as I did.  

On Saturday we stood in front of the full USPA Board to answer questions as his Bid was formally presented.  This was followed with a motion presented by the competition committee for STF to host the 2012 canopy piloting event.  The Board voted unanimously to approve Skydive The Farm as the host of Canopy Piloting Nationals in 2012!

In about six weeks the 2010 USPA CP nationals will be held at Skydive Spaceland.  Good luck to all those headed to take their shot at gold!!


Results Archive page for non-FLCPA meets

Trying to find meet results once a meet has passed is kind of a pain in the A$$!  trying to remember the host website, is tough and they’re always changing.  So I said to myself “Self, wouldn’t it be nice if there was a site to go to where we could find historical results for a bunch of the major canopy piloting meets, you know, a one stop shop?”  Well of course! so me and myself have compiled some information and built another archive page for meet results for non-FLCPA meets

It’s in now way a complete list of all the competitions that have happened, but should be a pretty good resource page if you want to check back at results from meets in the last few years. 

If you have a PDF file of the results of any events not listed, and think they should be, just email them to me and I’ll add them.  Here’s a link to the page, and I’ve added it to the menubar at the top of the site as well.
