We'd like to start by thanking everyone that made this event possible and most importantly to each and every skydiver that participated.

Special mention to the SkydiveOz crew, Pooh for bringing over the sexy Airvan and flying it, Richie for joining the tandem crew for the weekend and schooling the young guns on how to do a Saturday night, Shana for flying camera for multiple teams and Jules for hanging out and being generally awesome.

Friday was a training day and gave jumpers the opportunity to hone their flying skills, polish their formations and to familiarise themselves with the dropzone and the larger aircraft.

The event swung into full action early on Saturday morning with the 2-ways, 4-ways, CReW and sports accuracy competitors taking to the skies.

Saturday night saw the usual skydiver antics and while some nursed sore heads on Sunday morning, most were eager to get back in the sky!
