Belly Bash Load Organising with Dawn & Chris

“Another average weather day brought another epic Belly Bash on Saturday!! Thanks to all you beautiful people for coming out to play – against all the odds, we punched through the cloud and smashed out 4 awesome jumps! We had an absolute blast organising you all!

Thanks to our super skilled camera dudes Michael Young, Steve Fitch and David Brown, and as ever, our sponsors – Skydive Ramblers, South Queensland Parachute Council, Toogoolawah Skydivers Club Inc, and Mee Loft for making Belly Bash possible!

Next Belly Bash will be 25th May! Get it in the diary!”
