Montana logo

Friday 21 August 2015:  Today is Day 1 of the European Freefall Style & Accuracy Landing Championships (Senior and Junior). As well as being the official arrival day for the delegations, it's also designated as a day of training jumps, - but this is a FCE, a Continental Championship - and this is the weather situation at the DZ in Erden, Montana. . . .


Montana Day1


. . . . . it goes without saying that it's currently non-jumpable.  Watch this space.

Lunch time came and went but despite the rain stopping and the clouds lifting marginally it was evident that no jumping was going to take place today so the competitors were sent back to their respective hotels.  The Competitors' Briefing is scheduled to take place on the DZ this evening at 20.00hrs, by which time we should have a revised met forecast and hopefully one that enables the competition to start first thing tomorrow!
