During the competition there will be some changes to our normal operating procedures. To ensure everyones safety we are separating the competition (south side) from the normal jump operations (north side). The red area of the aerial map designates the division of these two areas. To ensure everyones safety the red zone or "Operations Area" is a strict no go zone for everyone except designated event staff. We will have volunteers on site who can drive people back and forth between the two areas as necessary.
Parking is only allowed in the designate "Event Parking" zones on the north side of the runway.
There will be a dedicated plane for competition jumps along with a separate manifest from normal jump operations. Loading for competition jumps will take place on the East side of the competitor tent.
