Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday the remains of Cyclone Trevor brought some much needed rain to the region, stopping jumping for a few days but reviving the deadzone and making landings a lot more comfortable.

The tandem Friday was Kieran Robinson.  Student Steven Hawkins did Stage 1 and Ben Mooney did Stages 5, 6 & 7.  There were 4 182 loads and 9 fun jumpers.
