Report by John McMahon:

Hey guys, thank you all for a great day on Saturday, really enjoyed the jumps and the frivolity of the dirt dives, for the first jump we dirt dived an 11way, then Holly arrived, no worries just slot her in, dirt dived the 12way then Kevin rocked up, ok lets dirt dive a 13way, got that done then Emily arrived and we ended up doing a very nice 2 point 14way, 2nd jump was once again a very nice 1st point, a little bit of a wait for the disabled pensioner (go Blaino, he is 70 after all) then luckily Dave’s camera misted up and the KAOS of the 2nd point is not readily seen. 3rd jump, well we built the donut but it seemed to float a bit as opposed to the rapidly spinning ones we normally build, but ended the day with a very nice 2.10 point 11way, somebody tracked a little early (no names hey Millie) but a fun day, everyone smiling and laughing watching the video’s.

On a more serious note, Emily raised the point of splitting into two groups for track of as we get to larger groups and she’s correct so in future on the bigger ways we’ll have two track heights.

Gourmet night was, as always, spectacular, the food was delicious and a good variety to tempt the taste buds and a good night of music and laughter. I think I accidently shot Wayne’s son about 30 times with my gel blaster, don’t mention my name at school young fella.

Huge thanks to the cooks and to Dave and Lynda for hosting a very good night, and of course Dave for the excellent camera work, a link to the video’s is below.

See you all next month on June the 9th and don’t forget X’mas in July on the 14th, snow has been predicted for that night

Stay safe
John, Jane and the aging Basil the Brush.

The DZ is amazing. Awesome plane which brings you to 14000 ft in the blink of an eye. Friendly staff who feel more like family.
