STACK UK National Championship Round 1

Thu May 18, 2017 5:35 pm

The first round of the STACK UK National Championship competition will be held THIS weekend: 20th – 21st May.

It will be held at Billing Aquadrome Holiday Park in the Nene Valley in Northamptonshire (Crow Lane, Great Billing NN3 9DA), using the Shelduck Number 2 arena.

We will be running one round of IRB competition, for individuals, pairs and teams in both dual line and multi-line.

We will also run a round of freestyle competition and a round of multi-kite ballet competition.

Please be aware that there is a car parking charge of £5.


Notes

The IRB competition will include individuals, pairs and teams in both dual line and multi-line. Obviously this is dependant on who turns up to compete in each category. The IRB competitions will be run according to the latest International Sport Kite Rule Book (Version 3).

The freestyle competition will be loosely based on the Tricks Party format.

The multi-kite competition will use the IRB ballet rules.

The competition is subject to weather and in extreme circumstances may have to be shortened or abandoned.
