Monday 20th January. It was a slow start to the week. There were only three 182 loads done. Tuesday wasn’t any busier, although Owen Mullins returned and did Stage 4 of his AFF Course. There was the one Cessna load.

Wednesday. The Tandem today was Andrew McGuren.  Owen Mullins did Stages 4 & 5 of his AFF Course.  Jenny Garciade returned and did Stages 5, 6 & 7.

Thursday was similar – quiet. Again only 3 loads done. And it was Thank You and Goodbye to Robbie McMillan who has been helping out for a couple of weeks.

Sunday 26th Australia Day was a beauty. After a bit of a shaky start we did 14 full loads with the 62 fun jumpers who were here. Jason continued with Stages 6 & 7 and Nicole did Stages 7 & 8.  We also had a couple of Tandems today. Angus Townsend and Lucas Wantling got their knees in the breeze – welcome to our world of Skydiving!
