“What’s got 26 legs and 100 sausages?! Belly Bash!

This week saw Ramblers July Belly Bash – a load organising event which is all about building and refining flat flying skills and having fun. 

It was amazing to see everyone’s flying progressing over the day as we worked up towards a beautiful sunset bigway on the last load of the day. If you want to see what we got up to over the last two Belly Bash events, see https://vimeo.com/735375008 

Thanks to everyone who helped make this happen and to Ramblers, TSC and SQPC for supporting this event. 

The August Belly Bash is on the 21st August- check out the Facebook event for more information. “
