A busy weekend again for the DZ with Stuberts BOOTie camp bringing in 20 jumpers to learn the very basics of FS in groups. 

The good news is that some of our jumpers are really starting to see things come alive, with great flying from everyone involved. Thanks to Jack Davies and Ryan May for their help, aling with camera flyers Joe Mann and Craig Hicks.

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 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.

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.
