CP Nationals


For those of you sick of mind-boggling political scene, there’s something more exciting going on in Denver next week besides the Democratic National Convention. It’s the 2008 USPA National Canopy Piloting Championships, hosted by the Mile-Hi Skydiving Center in nearby Longmont. So far, over 40 skydivers have registered for the chance to become national champions in either the advanced or open class. And the top eight in the open class will be invited to join the US Canopy Piloting Team that will compete at the World Canopy Piloting Championships in South Africa this November.

It’s hard to disagree with someone when they say canopy piloting is the single most exciting spectator sport we have. And the dynamic duo of organizer Frank Casares and meet director Jim Slaton have proven they know how to put on a show. It’s not just a skydiving competition but an extravaganza like no other, with bleachers, narrators, food concessions and the thrill of professional (and not-so-professional) skydivers screaming across the huge pond through colored gates on their way to glory.

If you can’t make it to Longmont next week for the fun and excitement, check our news site for daily updates and pictures of the action. It should be worth your time.

    someone should tell Obama, If he showed up at this event the news would cover it and that would bring a lot of attention to skydiving!
