The History of the CUMULUS CONVENTION

 

The CUMULUS CONVENTION was foundet by the first german

CF national team in 1982 to get more skydivers involved in

canopy formation skydiving. That happend in Z-Hills at their

first raining camp and was inspired by the Freakbrother Convention.

 

The first meeting was a 2-way scramble competition with one 

experianced CReW-jumper and one novice making a speed stack

and shooting accuracy on landing. Then it became a 3-way to 4-way

scramble with teams drawn from 3 pools of different experiance.

 

To become a Cumulus member you have to be in a 4-way formation

with two Cumulus members and dock 4th on it.

Soon the beer drinking upside down and the spin test were introduced

to the ceremony of becoming a member.

In recent years there have been hardly any newcomers to the meetings

and so I want to give the convention a new sence.

The idea is to keep the CF community in touch and continue the good

tradition of flying bigger formations.

If we find enough CReWdogs in Europe who are interested and willing

to commit themseves we will start a serious European Record Project.
