Nildottie Away Trip
We will be taking the operation to Nildottie,Sunday October 15, hosted at the Pink Shack.
There will be an opportunity for some fun jumpers to come and jump. Express your interest withTeags.
There'll be flowing beers, $10 pizzas from the pizza oven and of course,watersports on the River.
Due to some people letting down the team with outstanding accounts, there will be no more manifesting without credit on your account.
Most people are alloveritl, so thanks, however please make it part of your routine, when arriving, to check in at manifest and charge your accounts.
You may have noticed the big ass piles of dirt in the landing area and an ever growing hole. The new swoop pond is coming and we are going big. Rated for competition, we have big plans for the pond. If you enjoy canopy piloting and wish to be involved in the big plans, please see Miff.
For the meantime, it's D licence and above or DZSO approval to land in the expert area.
Intermediate area is out of action
Everyone else is to land at the student area.
The new student landing area is also coming and will be located South of the DZ across the runway.
The pond is a comin'
Congratulations to Melvin who commenced his AFF theory course last night and watches the sun set this evening with a completed and nailed Stage 4 behind him. Melvin was very well prepared, had done his homework and it showed in how well he took in new information and put it in to practice.
Nice work mate!

Over the dz last week. Watch and try to establish what caused this. It will be outlined in weekly safety below.
Did you figure out what caused the canopy in the video to twist and dive?
toggle off (packing error or fire)
once under canopy, try pulling one toggle off and see what happens
correct with riser input on the same side the toggle is off, or pull the other toggle off to balance
We are looking to hire someone for manifest as we pick up in to summer.
Doesn't have to be a jumper, in some ways, better if they're not. Obviouslyneed to be available weekends. If you know anyone suitable, put them on toTeags.
