Shayla Read: “The best thing ever.  I had so much fun.
John Axton: “Awesome. Not to be missed.

Adam Parker: “Hey guys, You’ve done it again…thanks for an absolutely hectic Learning Curve Camp last week! I thoroughly enjoy coming out for these weeks and this one was no exception, with everything right down to the perfect weather being organised with great success. Thanks also to the TSC for dedicating funding with the SQPC to enable the breadth of coaching experiences on offer for the week. I personally benefited from time with several, including time with Robin, John and Burkey in fitting the rental Sabre, and can recognise the value this added to the week’s experiences. From HALO-ing in from 18,000ft to seeing the guys appear out of the darkness of the eclipse, it was a LCC to remember. Thanks for your efforts in putting this together and I’m looking forward to the next one! Cheers, Adam.
