It Newsletter time, from Monday 11th February, and after a great weekend Jarod Hepburn was still here and did Stage 4 of his AFF Course. Ninette Keller did Stages 4, 5 & 6. It was a good start to the week but the weather turned against for a couple of days!
We got going again on Wednesday but only just. It was a bit the same Thursday. However our newest students Chris Cavanagh and Silas Barnes did Stage 1 of their AFF Courses.
On Friday things picked up. Madeline Rogers did a tandem. Chris Cavanagh did Stages 2, 3 & 4 of his AFF Course. Mason Corby arrived early for his 30th birthday long weekend and along with a few mates got a few loads going.
Saturday was flat out. Our new tandem jumpers were Jordan Sonter, Ethan Cotterall and Karri Flanders. Our newest students Lindsay Day and Shaun Sheahan did Stage 1 of their AFF Courses. Silas Barnes did Stage 2, Fred Rae did Stage 4, Michael Stevenson did Stages 5 & 6, and Charlotte Roe did Stage 8 of her AFF Course. Wing Suiters everywhere! The second Cessna Caravan was called up and we also did a formation load, half flatties and half angles jumpers. It looked great! It was a fantastic day. Then it was Party Time!

Sunday was almost as busy. Our tandems were Elissa Allison-Dahl and Jessica Rogerson. Our students got stuck into it. Silas Barnes did Stages 3, 4 & 5, Chris Cavanagh did Stages 4 & 5, Fred Rae did Stage 5 & 6 and Michael Stevenson did Stage 7. We were busy! The Fun Jumpers were having fun too. It was a great day and a good night at the pub.
One of my all time favorite dropzones in all the world, which is saying something, because I have jumped at hundreds of dropzones. Wonderful people running the place, wonderful people jumping there. Safe operation in every way, and tons of fun!
