It’s been a manic couple of months, July being our busiest July on record! We’ve been non stop jumping as we have been blessed with the beautiful summer weather. 

Well what have we been up to? We have had Mark Lord’s Beginner to big way event which has been perfect for our newly qualified FS1 graduates. We also welcomed Les who was here in July for his 10 way FS event, some great progression and some fab shots taken by Dave Mellor. 

We also welcomed Phil Webley to Black Knights who hosted the Flight 1 course, was great to see everyones progression. Phil will be back again in September, for those interested please visit the black knights club Facebook page for more info regarding this. 

Also big thanks to Pete Hutchinson for his freefly load organising in June, and big thanks to Dan Mills for organising. Hopefully Pete will be back soon if the weather plays ball. 

 

The AFF students have been making the most of the good weather and have been smashing out their levels. Congratulations to Mohammed, Jess, Lolly, Warren, Mike S, Mike W, Gary and Peter on gaining their A Licence. Apologies if anyone has been missed. 

Our bar has also now had a slight makeover, all thanks to Natalie and Chloe. Thank you for taking time to redecorate, it’s very much appreciated and I’m sure it will be enjoyed. Also a big thank to Natalie for arranging the club curry night and for Steve for preparing it for us, it was absolutely delicious and can’t wait for the next one!
