Wednesday was quiet but our newest student Stephen Roberts did Stage 1 of his AFF Course.  And on Thursday Charles Grevell was along for his Stage 3. Friday was similar, a bit quiet, and the weather turned a bit nasty.

Things picked up for the weekend. On Saturday Tandems were our first loads. Kodi Saies, Kalan Callcott, Abigail Clifford-Drady, Paul Crismale, Skye Marsh, Geran Roberts, and Cindy Mintern-Lane all took to the skies. Marj was in the sky for 6 loads and the 182 kept at it as well. About 40 people kept things reasonably busy. There was a bit of everything happening. Wingsuiters and Angles were the order of the day.
