Weekend : 21 – 22 November
got off to an early start. It was great
having all the jumpers there ready
and waiting to get some air beneath
their wings. Dodgy (André)
and Pam quickly got into their first
flight course with Bernard whilst the
rest of us (myself, Leen, and Garric)
had a flocking skills briefing with Edzard.
theory sessions it was time to jump – I must say a 4-way flocking
jump over Robertson isn’t necessarily
a bad way to start the weekend, in fact
it’s awesome! Soon after Pam did
her first wingsuit jump with Bernard,
a jump that one could say was long overdue.
Dodgy also got to do his first wingsuit
jump. It’s great seeing experienced
jumpers getting excited and somewhat
nervous about a jump. Well done guys – the
Robertson flock is growing.

I did a few
more one-on-one coach jumps with both
Edzard and Bernard – it’s
amazing how much you can learn in a few
jumps – they certainly helped a
long way in improving my skills and flights.
Sunday brought about more jumps, or shall
I say flights. A couple more one-on-one’s
and some more attempted flocking.
Like most weekends
this one ended too soon, I did however
get in another awesome flight – a 3-way with Bernard and
Edzard – not necessarily a bad
way to end the weekend. Thanks to the
coaches Bernard van Biljon and Edzard
Biermann, SSA, Skydive Robertson, and
all involved in making this another great
weekend of learning and too much fun.
