Only a few test jumps have been possible so far. Winds are still pretty strong and not expected to go down til late at nite. In the few lulls Johnny and the Aussies got another one in before the winds picked up again. We are still hopefull we might get a sunset round in though!!!
Tomorrow things look a bit better, the morning especially should be good to go, so lets hope for the best.
After all the jumpers arrived yesterday we had a briefing in the evening to introduce the new boys to the object, exit and landing zone. Everyone was chilled but excited at the same time and ready to get the competition going. There was a brief talk about certain changes in the rules but finally head judge Csaba Szorenzy decided to keep things as they were last year.
The big absentee this year is of course Klaus Renz who had to cancel last minute. Although everyone misses him tons, there is a broader array of podium contenders, such as Johnny Utah, Dan the Man, Marco Waltenspiel or Stig Knudsen.
In the morning the winds looked fine but as soon as we were ready to hit the ramp and get off, the winds gut gusty and strong so we had to go on standby right away. After a lucious breakky we had a short lull which the Aussie Twins took advantage of to get a test jump in. At about 2 secs they still got quite a few turbulences and had offheadins towards the left so we went back on standby.
Lets see what the afternoon brings!!!
