Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday were also weathered out.


Friday at least was a better day. Ricky Maggu did his Tandem. And Max did his B-Rel Stage 2 progress jump.

Saturday was a beautiful day. Fun Jumpers started arriving early. There was a fair amount of Relative Work happening. There were also quite a few novice and intermediate-level jumpers here. Max did his B-Rel Stage 3, and Trent did his B-Rel 6.3 with Keegan and Pat.

Our Tandem today was Josephine Dines. It was a beaut day.

Sunday was much the same as Saturday – great weather, lots of happy skydivers jumping, and our Tandems were Nikita Sovetov, Tsung Leung Lam, Shannon Reed, Tyson Heffler and Ross Windle.  It was a great way to end the week.

Toogoolawah DZ was the first Drop Zone in the world to use piggyback systems for 1St Jump Students. The Student Pigmee harness with the revolutionary Single Operation System or SOS, was invented by Dave Smith and Parachutes Australia. Photo courtesy of John Meara.

(to be confirmed…)

Was anxious-as coming in to start my AFF course, but these guys truly put me at ease. Felt more like joining a members club than just buying a commercial course. Great atmosphere - encouraging staff - awesome experience.....Now I just gotta get back and complete the course!
