FRIDAY

One hop and pop load braved the clouds and 3 fun jumpers got their knees in the breeze … and that was it for the day.

SATURDAY

Was similar, the annoying weather closed the drop zone early. There were 9 fun jumpers here plus Tuli, Stage 4 and new AFF student Hayden W. Stage 1, all on the one load that was done.

SUNDAY

Yahoo the weather was great and the 45 fun jumpers here did the 11 loads that were completed.  Our Tandems today were Samuel A., Charlotte D., and Ranwalage R.. AFF student Hayden did Stages 2 & 3,  Tuli did Stage 4, and Luke B. did Stages 3,  4 & 5. Great way to end the week.

Team Bellas

The Bellas’ weather dance paid off, and they enjoyed glorious blue skies for their training day on Sunday. After lots of drills and practice in the tunnel, they were super happy with their awesome performance in the sky. With the nationals fast approaching, the team will be back out again in February so be sure to come and cheer them on!
