Default RE: R/C Skydiver Rally 2008

Hi Juanf ,

The flying conditions in Heringen Germany where "SH*¨%.?WOEPS"
Rain and a lot of wind 25 miles ,some pilots added 1lbs of lead to ther jumpers to penetrade de wind .
My jumper hd a gross weight 4 lbs .

Ok here they are , in fact there where two mid air collisions !

1é /Alfred Rachner colliding wiht unknown jumper
2é / Alfred Rachner colliding with Theo Veasen
3é / the new jumping circle , the system used in the USA was the base of the new target ,
everybody was sick of the endless discussions where there jumper had hit the target .
This way you make the spot to watch and pinpoint where the first contact with the target toke place very clear .

Marion and I will arrive in Muncie Thursday 9/11 have reservations at Holiday Inn Express.

Seeya all in Muncie .
