Friday blown out. And Saturday was also weathered out for the 4th weekend in a row!!

Sunday saved us again (for the 4th weekend in a row!) Lots of Tandems were here. Stephanie De Wit, Jai Coffison, Luke Hill, Calvin Mukerji, Peter Cai, Monika Barbaresco and Saxon Spillett all got their knees in the breeze.

Our new students Siddharth Beswami and Roger Flores-Ore did Stage 1 of their AFF Course. Hannah Jeffries did Stage 4, and Chris Gustafsson did Stages 5, 6. 7 & 8 of his AFF Course. And the fun jumpers who stayed for the day filled all the loads.

DZ Flashback – Blast From The Past

Visit our Ramblers history webpage for more info…

1982-ish: Jim Spark landing his round reserve (with line twists) after an “in-flight transfer” (opening his reserve and then cutting away his good, open main), into Lang Park at the QRL Grand Final. Note the main pilotchute about to land in front of the grandstand!

(to be confirmed…)

My experience of a tandem skydive was for my 40th Birthday. I could not imagine possibly enjoying myself any more than what I did today. Thank you to my tandem guide and the video guys. Instructions were very clear and thorough about what to do, what to expect and I got a great tour guide experience up in the air. I look forward to doing it again.
