Euro Record 2013 – Viking Sector

Some information about this summers Euro Record!

Dates: September 15-19
Size: Up to 104 way
Nordic Sector/Viking sector: 30 (Bench 10+)
Organizers: Mox and myself

Status: The situation is like this. The last 4 big ways, Euro (51 & 80) and World (108 & 138), barely flew, and there where a lot of situations that we would like to avvoid. This is not good enough and we need to embrace the fact that if we are gonna keep going bigger we all need to improve our level. Skills like diving, floating, being in a base, break off, flying your slot, stinging with left and right hand, closing and maintaining awareness are skills that all of us need to improve. The reality of a big way is that you need to adapt your skills to it really fast, not the other way around.

So, for the nordic sector we are looking for:
-Team players. No drama, no backstabbing, but a lot of ability to build confidence and skill in a group and making your sector work together.
-Flyers with experience from big ways that are current, jumping a lot and working on maintaining their skill. Being on previous records alone is not enough. As mentioned above, they barely flew so we need to all improve to go bigger.
-Pure skill.
-As before. If we feel like we are lacking skill in our sector we will look for flyers that we know first hand from other countries to fill these slots. Priority one is to make the sector fly. Viking personality required!

-During the late summer.
-Slots will be given at any given time based on above criteria.
-Based on previous experience we know that we need a very strong bench. Bench will be around 10 flyers+.
-Show up and test your luck? Yes! If you are there, and you are good enough, you will be on the record.

Selection camps:

We will be cooperating closely with Babylon towards selection.

Note to self:
If your goal is to be on a record, you need to start somewhere. Your goal should have several steps leading up to it. You need to work on your skill and experience to achieve it. Being present at a record attempt without being on it is one of the first steps. Experiencing the vibe, situations happening and being part of the group is a very important experience. Show up, be there at this time, come hang out, you will learn a lot, and maybe…

Rumors also have it that there will be a Endless Summer Boogie leading up to the event…? Yet to be confirmed.

Lets do this



Look at what our friends are doing!!! Seems like D4W is giving everyone the opportunity to go play again. This week me and Alex have been flying routines with the Eloy crew. Been super cool to get to finally do some flying with Amy, Curtis and Sara, along with the others that came out here! We really appreciate them taking the time to fly with us. Its always nice to have someone to show interest in what you have been working on. Video of this will follow, but now first!
