Instructions from the PD Factory Team on how to purchase:
Visit the PD Factory Team website to purchase your ticket(s).  On that page is a form field you should fill in with the name you’d like to have on the poster.  You may purchase than one ticket on the time – but only one poster is supplied per order. If you’d like different name, do it as a separate order.  Posters will be sent out once all tickets are sold.  Since it’s a digital poster, you don’t need to worry about your shipping address; the poster will be emailed to the email used to purchase the poster.

PD Factory Team adds two new members

The PD Factory team announced in a press release that 2 new members would be joining the team: Julien Guiho (France) and Gage Galle (Hawaii, USA).

VFS jumpers no doubt know Julien as a current World Champ with France’s “Team 4 Speed” (Vertical Formation Skydiving). Julien has competed in Canopy Piloting around his busy VFS training schedule, but will now be making the switch to Canopy Piloting full-time. Julien will continue to be based in Europe.  Gage Galle is already well-known on the US Canopy Piloting scene and plans to tackle the international scene this coming summer. 

We wish the new members all the best and look forward to see what they will bring in 2013!
