Island Siege is een “High level Freefly georienteerd” skillcamp georganiseerd op Texel. Island Siege is voor het eerst georganiseerd in 2014 en was gelijk een groot succes! Komend jaar vieren we het evenement zijn 5-jaarlijkse Lustrum en pakken we groots uit!
OFFICIELE EVENT OMSCHRIJVING VAN DE ORGANISATIE:
Island Siege is a five day FF skills camp (21-25 August 2018) . Participants are organised in groups of 7 based on their skill level. The groups will do approximately 6-8 jumps per day and will stay (mostly) the same throughout the week.
The organizers will rotate amongst the groups every day. Within a week of registration you will receive a payment email. You can choose to pay the full amount or just the reservation fee of €75,-. In both cases €75,- is non refundable. As soon as registration is paid your slot will be saved. When you opt for the reservation fee the full amount will be due May 1st.
NB: Due to the timing of the Vertical World Record this year we will only take on 49 participants (seven groups) so slots are seriously LIMITED!
