Myself and Emma will be at Hinton all day on Friday. Who fancies coming on down? I know of at least 4 other fun jumpers there on fri, so we should be able to keep the pac going all day. Who's up for it?

On a weekday they open at 9am I think, if they have tandems booked in or enough fun jumpers they usually get things moving about 9.30 with wheels off at 10am if its looking to be a busy day. I was there on a Friday 2 weeks ago and did 5 jumps, could of been easily 6 if I wanted to get on the last load...

If there are enough fun jumpers and the weather is good then the pac will be flying all day. I think they only need 6 or 7 fun jumpers to get the plane up.

then why don't you book every Friday off in May/Jun/Jul/Aug next year, then cancel on the Thursday if the weather look's crap, but say something like "I've got so much work to do so I am going to cancel my days holiday in order to get it done".

Adrian: Will see you 2moro then dude, I'll be the guy in the black and orange freefly gear

Angie: You won't have any prob banging out a few more consols, there are always instructors on hand to dispatch. We're a friendly bunch, and have a lot of fun, if you've never been to Hinton before I think you'll love the place.... I do! As for jumping on Saturday, the Met looks pants but we're all going jumping at Weston which is just down the road from Hinton. Come and say hi, like I said to Adrian above I'll be the dude in black and orange

Haydn: Dude, do what I do............. Skive!
Ed: Tomorrow should be a giggle, you know you want it! 1 week Monday boys, aren't you glad we're not going to Russia :O

Mart.
