I believe in the KISS principle.
In Europe 5 jumps are counted with perhaps 6 max. The jumper is required to land on it's feet into the wind at a precise quadrant of the circle. The circle center is a electronic sensitized pad which provides a readout in CM from the exact center. Under these conditions, you do a lot of sitting around instead of jumping. Jules can offer more accurate information.
We organized the CORKS event with fun and friendship as the primary reasons to be there. I think everyone had an opportunity to jump as many times as they wanted. You could consider these as practice jumps and record your best efforts.
Next year Paul Fannin and Mike See will continue with the same rules or change them in response from others.
Just found this, don't know whether it's still in effect or not, but gives you an idea of the complexity of Euro Rules:
The target itself measures 16cm in radius. Hitting it, you get a whopping
100pts bonus ( -100pts). Not hitting it, the distance from the CENTER of the
target is measured within a 5m radius. One point per cm. There is second circle
with 7m radius, which marks the closest distance to the target at which the
pilot is allowed to stand.
There is an area around the target center that is called Platz=field. Its
shape and size is not defined. It could be a circle of 10m radius for example.
Field is 700, outside field is 1000 pts.
The penalties are:
no visible free dive - 200 pts
dirt dive or flight not executed - 1500pts
no right/left circle flown - 100pts each
only if field is hit:
no "straight landing procedure" 250 pts
no landing in wind direction (+- 45 degrees allowed) 200pts
There have always been arguments about what "straight" means. I would say it
means no significant changes in direction of more than 90 degress in the last
2-3 meters of flight.
