World Parachutists Over Phorty Society

Although the Parachutists Over Phorty Society had members in many countries, it did not begin to have a World identity until the first World POPS Championships (WPC) in Australia in 1989. A stronger global community was then forged by the election of Mike Allum as the first World TopPOP at the third WPC in Spain in 1995. The main responsibility of the World TopPOP is the organization of the next WPC.

WPCs now take place every two to three years and are an opportunity to renew old friendships, make new ones and take part in friendly competition with and against POPS members from all over the world.

Future WPCs

The 15th World POPS Meet and Championships is scheduled to be held the summer of 2020 at Dunkeswell, England. 

05-07 August 2020 will be training dates.

Opening ceremony 7 Aug 2020.

Competition dates will be 08-15 August 2020.

Previous WPCs

The POPS held its first WPC in 1989 in Australia and the second was in 1993 hosted by Skydive Orlando in Umatilla, Florida, USA.

 

The third WPC was in 1995 at the Centro de Paracaidismo de Costa Brava in Empuriabrava, Catalonia, Spain. At that time, Mike Allum of the UK was appointed by the National TopPOPs as the first World TopPOP with specific responsibility for arranging the next WPC.

 

The Fourth WPC was held in 1997 at the Royal Jordanian Parachute Club at Aqaba in Jordan, where Alicia Moorehead replaced Mike as World TopPOP.

 

The Fifth WPC took place in 1999 at the Fraser Valley Skydiving Centre in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada. At this WPC, Alicia Moorehead stepped down as World TopPOP and handed over to John Crowhurst.

 

The Sixth WPC took place in 2002 in Matamata, New Zealand. Theo Fritschy agreed to take on the role of World TopPOP.

 

The Seventh WPC took place in 2004 in Gruyeres,Switzerland, at the Epagny Aerodrome. Theo Fritschy handed over to Karl Poruben.

 

The Eighth WPC took place in 2006 in Eloy, Arizona, USA. Karl Poruben handed over to Ian "Robbo" Robertson.

 

The Ninth WPC took place in 2008 in Toogoolawah, Queensland, Australia. Robbo handed over to Lamberto Serenelli.

 

The Tenth WPC took place at the Body Flight University Parachuting School, Reggio Emilia, Italy in 2010. Lamberto handed over to Ronald van Rijn
