Monday 25th of December. Merry Christmas Newsletter time. We had Christmas day off!

On Tuesday we were back into it, sort of! Ka Lam Cheong (Jared) was back for Stage 5 of his AFF Course. Emma Thornton got a B-Rel in. Fifteen other Feel Good Boogie people got Marj moving for a few loads.

Saturday was busier again, to be expected I suppose. There were about 30 fun jumpers here, all going pretty hard. Our two tandems for the day were Brodie Duncalf and Roy Hilton, welcome aboard! Jared did some more B-Rels. So did Sam Hinde.

Visitor Book Comments

Tim Whyte – Cannot recommend Ramblers highly enough. Thanks to Darren.
Brodie Duncalf – Absolutely awesome experience.
Jason White – Rock’n’…Roll.  Best experience of my life.

I have been to Toogoolawah for 3 tandem jumps so far. I am trying to make it a yearly event. I love the atmosphere out there in the bush, with the kangaroos around.
