Freefly Xtravaganza Insights
by Elsinore Psycho Cirkus -

Just a quick "thank you" to everyone who made the trip out for the Xtravaganza and a big "sorry" for the crappy weather! Mother nature was in a wicked bad mood that weekend but, thankfully, we were able to have fun nonetheless.

The bad weather didn't stop us from holding the swooping competition, and we saw lots of great, and some not-so-great swoops that made the crowd go wild. Congratulations to our first place swooper, Ty Losey. Second place went to Wyat Drewes, and finishing in third was Bruce Graybill. A great time was had by all, and thank you again to all the competitors who participated.

We taught old Mother Nature a thing or two about freeflying and bad weather since our last event, (She has two fat lips and she walks with a limp now!) but she promises perfect weather for our make-up event (she wouldn't dare)!
We will be scheduling the make-up Psycho Cirkus Freefly Xtravaganza for July 27-30. Come on out if you'd like to compete in the intermediate freefly competition or the swooping competition, and show your swooping abilities in our new 200'+ swoop pond called the "Abyss" (which has already shown it's ability to consume swoopers)! With the help of several highly qualified load organizers we will be making many, many, many (did I say many?) sit and headdown bigways, tracking, tube, flocking and whatever-else-you- can-think-of jumps during all four days of the Xtravaganza. We still have lots of money and prizes to give away, too, and will be piling on more, so come out and get your share!
Our web site will be updated shortly and will have all the new information for your reference. Already taking shape and with awesome weather planned, it promises to be bigger and better than before, so we hope that everyone will make plans to come out and make the Xtravaganza unforgettable!
Please email us back if you know that you will be attending, and if you are coming out for the boogie and/or to compete in the intermediate competition.
See you all soon!
