Monday 10th February. Well, after the one load yesterday (last Sunday 9th) we managed two Cessna 182 loads today. And that was it until Friday and we managed another three Cessna 182 loads. In between we had floods! But then the weather came good for the weekend, sort of.

Saturday dawned clear and bright – until a storm passed through in the early afternoon. But it was a good day’s jumping. There were 9 Caravan loads done, including a high altitude  18,000’ oxygen load for Cody’s 40th birthday. 44 jumpers got their knees in the breeze including our local girls’ 4 way team, the “Bellas”Kristina, Laura, Fiona, and Tayia were here for some training. The day’s jumping was followed by a DZ SMS (safety) meeting, followed by a bonfire and Cody’s birthday bash. It was a great day!

Upcoming events

I have been to Toogoolawah for 3 tandem jumps so far. I am trying to make it a yearly event. I love the atmosphere out there in the bush, with the kangaroos around.
