The Club Parachute Repack yesterday went very well. Thank you to all who attended. We were expecting 12-15 but 18 chutes were inspected and repacked plus one new chute installed - so we were very busy

Some minor issues with bungee mouthlocks were addressed and there were one or two cases of untidy line stowage. Also, one ageing deployment bag split open during refitting and had to be replaced!

A massive thank you to Nick & Aaron for their packing prowess and hard work & to Steve J, Evan and others for helping out (not sure who did the final washing up, but thank you, it saved me doing it!) . It was great to see such enthusiasm from our Club members!

Much tea, coffee and biccies were consumed and the day turned into quite a social event.

Thanks to your generous donations, we have raised £105.00 for Brecon Mountain Rescue team!

As a big plus, due to the weather, we didn't miss any flying!

If any club members missed out but still want their chutes re-packed, contact Nick directly to arrange.

The repack will be held at:

It starts at 09:00 and we will need to be finished by 17:00 so please arrive before 15:00

Also, bring along the manuals for your harness and reserve if you have them

Please let me know if you are intending to come along and whether you will arrive morning or afternoon, so we have a rough idea of numbers.

SWWSC Members only please
