Wednesday, October 21, 2020


Day 1 – Monday 26th

It starts next Monday. Meet and Greet 8.00am in the Snake Pit and then start jumping. Coaches, including Alan “Mossy” Moss, are available and keen. TSC will be sponsoring some coach slots. All disciplines, flat, fast; groups or solos, and students and tandems can be accommodated. DZ instructors will point you in the right direction if you need help organizing your jumps. Our new rigger Rob Ellery will be onsite.

Nox Lite daily registration opens this coming Thursday. No DZ fees. Book online or call / email the Drop Zone for more info. On site accommodation may be available – book early. Free camping.

Formal Meet and Greet Monday evening followed by our first nightly Claude Gillard raffle. We have not asked anybody for sponsorship raffle prizes this Nox however we are raffling Claude’s Memorabilia that’s too good to throw away.

Zack’s Day Tape will follow the raffles. Get your footage to Zack by 3.00pm daily. The Coach House Café will be open for all meals. The bonfire will be roaring if it’s not too hot and there’s no fire ban. The bar closes at midnight.

Day 2 – Tuesday 27th

Tuesday’s program will be a repeat of Monday except 18,000’ high altitude jumps are planned. You’ll need two height tickets for these jumps. Let CI Ben know if you are interested. A formal briefing is required.

Day 3 – Wednesday 28th

On Wednesday Keith Grealy will be available for some Freefly coaching and fun jumps. A Coach Ticket will be needed if you wish to book a one-on-one jump with Keith. Keith is keen to jump hard, so get in quick! Hopefully Keith might stick around for another day.
There is acoustic music planned for late afternoon drinks around the pool, by local legend Bruce McDade.

Day 4 – Thursday 29th

On Thursday, evening Night Jumps will happen weather and flying foxes permitting. There will be a formal beginners Night Jump Course starting 4.30pm. First load takes off at 6.45pm. There will be two loads. Booking essential Oli Morris is in charge. Oli will be organizing any night rel work (flat flying) jumps. Rumor has it there will be Meteor Men taking part in the night jumps-not to be missed.

After the night jumps and following the raffle there will be an auction with a difference that you also won’t want to miss! ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE AUCTION WILL BE DONATED TO THE APF TEAM FUND. Then it’s Zack’s Day Tape again and more bell ringing.

Day 5 – Friday 30th

On Friday there will be another two night jump sorties. Rumor has it there will be Meteor Men taking part in the night jumps – not to be missed. After the night jumps we’ll have the raffle, the day tape and the Talent Quest!! Dom our pilot will do a set on the piano for us. (Any other takers?) We will be entertained by Brazilian legends “Banana & Zia”, a Brisbane based music band who also love skydiving!

Day 6 – Saturday 31st

We’ll see what happens during the day on Saturday. Formation loads are being planned. It will be a big day of skydiving if the weather behaves itself! It will also be a big night of entertainment; closing speeches, monster raffle, the biggest day tape, and then The Amanda Emblem Experiment will provide the music and close the Equinox Lite event for us.
