On Tuesday Aaron Li did Stage 2 of his AFF Course. The wind picked up after the first load, so our instructor Sara decided to make the best out of it and gave a packing lesson for all the jumpers in the drop zone.

On Wednesday the weather was better again so we were jumping all day. Aaron did Stages 3, 4 & 5 of his AFF Course and Shai Lewis did a jump towards his AFF. Too much for our DZ Koala who really needed a nap!
