World Cup France Val Louron Wednesday 19 : the landing field is flooded !!

Posted : 10 months 5 days ago
Event reference: 

Hi all
For this first report, I will just put a picture from a local newspaper : the landing field is flooded due to heavy rains and snow melting !! There is no hurry to arrive in Val Louron as this week is all but flyable, roads are closed, meteoalarm flashes red for our area...
We can just hope it will improve !! Saturday 22 looks promising.

edit 14h : water is gone now, and the local PG schools are using the field as usual. This was a fast flooding, was'nt it ?

What are paragliding competitions about ?

For the major majority of the general public the term 'paragliding' either means nothing at all or brings to mind images of people being towed behind boats or 'jumping' off hills with a parachute - this isn't the case and we will try to explain a bit more about our sport with these words.

Receipts now available for pilots to download / print

To make it easier for pilots to obtain receipts for entry into Paragliding World Cup competitions we have now created an automatic receipt system. All pilots will now find a 'receipts' tab on the pilot information page (click Pilots then Search Pilots and enter the information needed to find your page). You can create receipts for each event, an entire year or every competition you have paid for in the last 2 years.

These are generated as PDF files so you can download them if you want to.
