Melissa did Stages 5 & 6 of  her AFF Course while Attila Szvetko did Stages 7, 8 & 9 – completing his AFF! Well done. There were a few keen skydivers here and we got 5 loads done.

The weekend was all but a washout. No loads at all Saturday but Mitchell Hancock did his First Jump Course with Daniel McWhir and Ross O’Hara sitting in, but the day’s jumping was rained out.

Sunday wasn’t much better. One Charlie and one Marj load and that was it for the weekend. Our brave tandem was Xueru Liu, and Mitch Hancock was on both loads for Stages 1 and 2 of his 10 Jump AFF package. Another 10 die hard fun jumpers filled the loads. It was still a fun week.

Visitor Book Comments

Joshua Egan – Amazing tandem jump. The freefall was great and canopy time was instructional with controls and direction.

Allie Burke – You guys are the greatest!  Thank you so much for an amazing experience. Can’t wait to start my skydiving course! See you again soon!! 🙂

Jarrad Schmidt-Lee – Loved it thanks for the support of the crew.

Xueru Liu – Awesome.  Safe and support of the crew.

Ramblers is a great club and a great drop zone. It was 39 years ago and it is now. I have just gone through the photos of my tandem jump with Darren and relived the whole exhilarating experience again - even my husband was impressed. Congratulations to Dave McEvoy for such a fantastic venue.
