It’s Monday 29th January and it’s the start of the Learning Curve Camp. Four swoopers arrived for a couple of days National Titles training. There were seven LCC people here but the winds were up a bit. Eventually we got going and two Caravan and four 182 loads got everybody their jumps.
It was all Charlie the 182 doing all but one of the 14 loads today, Tuesday. Wind Tunnel students Talia King and Lucy Lomas did Stages 1 & 2 of their Courses. About 8 LCC jumpers were still at it. A few fun loads were done and things were warming up.
On Wednesday 11 Curvers continued jumping. Three Marj and four Charlie loads kept everybody busy. The Learning Curve seminars kept happening.
And that was it for the rest of the week. Party over. Thursday was blown out and it rained for three days.
By Sunday the weather started to clear. It dried out for a few jumps in the afternoon, but big winds. What do they say, “you get that on the big jobs”! Oh well, the next Learning Curve Camp will be a beauty so keep the dates free.
There are a few “big things” being planned so watch this space.
And thanks again Harvey, your landing videos were appreciated.
Went with them today for my first ever skydiving. It was amazing, exhilarating and exciting. Don't be scared, there's nothing terrifying about it. Once you are out of the plane, it feels like you're flying.
