This weekend was the first Freefly event of the year with Matty holding a Head Up Skills Camp. Despite the poor weather there was a good turnout.
Luckily enough the Freefly massive were able to make jumps on each day of the weekend. There was lots of progression to be had for both the experienced Head Up flyers and also those new to Head Up Formations.
A very special weekend.
With the return of Stubert from his baby break and the introduction of Matty Mitchell, the weekend, nay, the season promises to be a grand one.
This weekend, walk up with Matty and BOOTie Camp with Stubert.
A dodgy forecast is like a dodgy curry. Quite often it's threatening to ruin your day, but rarely is it as bad as it looks...
A fine day's jumping again this weekend with a small but perfectly formed belly group.
Good times for all, but particularly Matt Taylor who did his 100th with us.
Good show old chap.
And so it is time to cease the funnest of all things... Skydiving comes to an end at Hibaldstow this week. But not for long.
Just before our breif repreive however, we did manage to score some super fun FS on the DZ.
Congratulations to Sophie Harper for her 200th jump and Jordan Simcoe for his 600th this weekend.
Often seen as the grand finale of the year, the Hibaldstow Christmas party is a fine opportunity to dress up, but let your hair down.
A great turn out during the day culminating in the last formation load of the year.
This year the swish awards came out in style.
As the season begins its downturn, we look to richer pastures. Of course, our two sister dropzones are just up the road. One in Spain and on in Portugal, both of which enjoy fine weather much later in the season that the UK.
Fifty eight jumpers humped over to Portugal to take advantage of the heat, neatly slipping between two thunder storms in the process.
A busy weekend of meeting and greeting on many levels this weekend.
One one hand, York University's student group managed to draw in a spectacular 24 students onto a groundschool. The bar was busy and the skies full of cold, yet pleased first time jumpers. Nice work York.
Stubert's 4ndry event, Meet, Greet, Compete was bigger than ever this season with 30 jumpers preparing for another season of 4-way.
Here's some shots from the weekend.
Thanks to Aiden Chaffe and Dean Masters for them.
A weather marred, but fun weekend at Skydive Hibaldstow.
Here's some shots from Jim Stevenson from the small walk up group that took advantage of the chilled but clear weather Sunday.
Another top weekend at the DZ with loads of jumpers braving the wrong forecast for some right jumps.
Stu's group took the weekend by the horns, doing 12 jumps. Each a little more developed than the last. It's great to see the group rise to the challenge. As the weather comes in, we've got to take advantage of what's left!
