As many of you know we’re planning to organize another and bigger international competition in the Netherlands. Last year we had around 50 competitors and this year we want to make the maximum amount of competitors a little bit higher. Last year we had a pretty long and tight schedule and we are wondering if we can change this. We’ve have now the possibility to have a 25 meter pool on Saturday evening for static and on Sunday an Olympic 50 meter pool for dynamic. Because a lot of competitors have to stay for one night in a hotel we thought it maybe was a good idea to split static and dynamic in 2 days. What do you think of this idea?

The dates we’re talking about are:
13 december: Static – 19:00-23:00
14 december: Dynamic – 13:00-18:00
The Competition will be in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

Otherwise we have to plan everything on Sunday between 12:00 and 20:00 and that will again be a very tight schedule. We’re here to make a good competition for all freedivers, so we want to listen to you what you want. So please let me know in this forum. End of this month the complete plan and website is ready. So watch your email! It will be a very special competition!!

Please give your comment below. Everything usefull you would like to see in a pool competition will be welcome. Hints, tips and everything.
No one?

Okay, lets make it another question. Everybody is always complaining that this and that is going wrong is competitions. What would you like to see different in a competition? Point up everything so that organizers like us can learn about mistakes and improve them.

How does an ideal pool competition look like?
hey Jorg,

thanx for asking
I was ther last year, great competition !

I'd rather see the whole thing done in 1 day.
Being from belgium I'm not staying overnite so I would have to come over twice.
