Bugger. Already have plans for that Friday evening :-(

Haven't jumped at St A for a while (was almost there the weekend before last but never got around to moving my arse). Never mind, another time.

Should be at the Northerns though. Hopefully the weather will be better than the Southerns...

Re: BCPA Scots Meet, UK [In reply to] Can't Post

Hmmm... I'm not sure getting up early and driving 9 hours is the sort of thing to be doing after a heavy night out. Especially if I'm going to have to do the same thing less than 24 hours later.

It was bad enough this last weekend with jumping Sunday and Monday and then driving back over night. Didn't get in until 06:00. Ho hum.

'fraid it'll just have to be the Northerns. :-(

Not that I wouldn't love to come and play - parties are always a good thing! As long as you guys don't go for the big-way record I'll be happy :-)

Dude - where can you possibley live that's nine hours away from St. Andrew's yet makes Strath your local dz?!?
Even Skye's only about 6 hours away Crazy

but fair enough - 9 hour drive = totally valid excuse


there'll be no 'bigway record'ing, unless we get another plane and even then I've gotta presume the record's at more than a 10-way at the moment

Enjoy the Northerns Smile

Re: [batbex] BCPA Scots Meet, UK [In reply to] Can't Post

I have the misfortune of now living in Exeter, on the south coast of that country stuck onto the bottom of Scotland. Strath ain't my closest DZ, but I've still done more jumps there than at Dunkeswell (25 minutes away) since I moved down here.

But I suppose if I were to use the jump numbers argument then Z-Hills is my local... :-p

It does actually take longer to get to St Andrews than Strath anyway. Took me 10 and a half hours the weekend before last :-|

Anyway, have fun at the Scots (I'm sure you will)!

hey just to let guys know, i think we will have another plane for the scotsmeet, a 206 to add to the 185 we normally have, so up to ten ways are possible...

i say possible, but the chances of 10 hungover students gettin together in the sky, out of 2 cessnas are pretty slim! Unsure

cya there anyways!

Bloody hell - where did all these St.Andrew's dz.commers suddenly come from?
and you do realise that's called thread-hijacking Ewan! Tongue

Could likewise do with a good partay - as will have just handed in my dissertation on that friday - though my finals are a mere 2 weeks later Crazy

Will see what the boyf's doing and if his shoulder's mended by then

Surprised me too, I didn't know some of them had DZ.com accounts!

It was all that bouncing about the tunnel that did it. Unsure A lesson for everyone here - freeflying is bad for you...mmkay. Tongue Seriously though, heres hoping it will heal up so he can get back up in the air again asap.

And in order to keep it on-topic myself, I shall copy-and-paste the latest news on the hypno-show:

Quote:
I had some excellent reactions to last year's show "Rivertrance") from observers and volunteers. In this year's show ("Dogstars* "), I'll be picking up the pace, and trying out new routines for the public shows.

So, if you're coming to the meet, remember not to forget your imagination (relax....)

lol! Laugh
I was including you in that Tom! - I already knew Ally(and Graeme and Gordy) had accounts - not you and Ewan though!

and yes - freeflying is bad Tongue evidently Dr said he'd be up and jumping within a couple of weeks (being a nice girlfriend, I've chosen to believe this 'version' of what the Dr actually said!)

nice save with the hypnotist bit by the way
it was fab last year though - girl falling in love with a space hopper and getting all agro at another girl for hopping on it Laugh bring it on...

hey just thought id hijack the thread again by saying that everyone who wasnt up this weekend missed out big time, as we had 2 planes and PERFECT weather the whole weekend! Cool got a bit of a suntan meself.

i predict that it will be like this at the scotsmeet, although with more students and hence more drinkin and drunken shenannegans!

gonna be a blast, cant wait!
