The dropzone bar is open till late, prices are cheap and food is available all day. There will be an all you can eat style barbeque on the Saturday night before the entertainment begins. Back by popular demand this year is Kevin Mcphillips stage hypnotist and category system instructor. After the hypnotist there will be uni team drinking games. You have been warned!

Tickets can bought all weekend and the winners will be drawn after Sunday lunch.
For students to jump at St Andrews you need to have completed one RAPS jump in the last three months. Remember to bring your logbooks and current BPA membership.
Jump prices : £30 all student jumps £18 experienced to altitude Kit hire £10 (£4 back if you pack it)
the more people who confim they're coming the bigger the plane!
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)!
Bloody hell - where did all these St.Andrew's dz.commers suddenly come from?
Surprised me too, I didn't know some of them had DZ.com accounts!
Will see what the boyf's doing and if his shoulder's mended by then
It was all that bouncing about the tunnel that did it. A lesson for everyone here - freeflying is bad for you...mmkay. Seriously though, heres hoping it will heal up so he can get back up in the air again asap.
you do realise that's called thread-hijacking Ewan
And in order to keep it on-topic myself, I shall copy-and-paste the latest news on the hypno-show:
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....)
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! 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!
