Competition Coffee

Hurray! Soon the Battle for Seattle starts! All competitors will get some training coffee to practice all those Jedi mind tricks before the championship. We will have pickup points in Basel, Geneva and Zurich (the address will be communicated to competitors by email). The coffee you will receive is for your practice at home, before the competition and needs to last for the competition as well. So don’t burn everything beforehand.

There is still a chance to compete

Wow, we have more than the targeted number of competitors. At the moment we have 30 registrations!!! The first 27 will be confirmed via email for the participation. Three of you are on the standby list. The good news however is, if we get in total 9 #aerowarriors on the standby list, we will extent the competition to 36! Go and seek more competitors. #SAC2015
