Here it is again, your weekly DZ Newsletter from Monday 28th August, and the start of the week was quiet. Nothing happened today, no jumping. It was a bit of a relief really after such a full on weekend!

But on Tuesday  Mr Woo’s group did some serious jumping. And on Wednesday Troy Hanson was here for AFF Stages 4 & 5. Cameron our pilot also did Stage 7 of his AFF. Ayden de Ruiter also got a B-Rel jump in.

Thursday was also a quiet day so the staff did some tandem training.

A bunch of fun jumpers were here and some good loads happened. So did our Friday night sausage sizzle.

On Saturday the weather was pretty good. A little bit of everything happened; new students, old students, flatties (Jim Czerwinski’s Two Galahs Ten did a couple of practice jumps), angles and wing suiters kept the pace steady. Our tandems for the day were Lou Langrish, Angie Wright and Wayne Mundey.

The wind turned a bit nasty in the middle of the day but we ended on a good high with a fun load. And a good feed at the pub as usual!

See ya!

Visitor Book Comments

Re Re Mustang – Awesome instructors and awesome free fall.
Wayne Mundey – Best experience!

As a SCUBA Instructor, I'm watchful for safety and professionalism in other extreme sports and the staff, buildings, equipment, plane and even other customers at Ramblers all gave me a feeling of safety and comfort in addition to being genuinely welcoming as newcomer to their sport. If you haven't been and have been wanting to skydive - this is a GREAT place to start your newest addiction. : )
