EPC/WC 2011 - Open Day at the Airfield

Today and tomorrow is an Open Day at the airfield. It was opened today with a short welcome speach for the visitors by Mrs. Monika Bachmann, head of the district authority. She also gave a 175€ cheque to support the airfield festivity to Christoph Knerr, president of local skydiving club FSV Saar e.V. Thank You! ...

The weather was rather cold, windy and sometimes low clouds came in (but better than in the rest of Germany), so less then expected number of visitors were on the airfield. But those who were here could see a lot: 38 lifts with three jump aircrafts and pleasure flights with the local airclubs and a quiz with three tandemjumps as winning prize from sponsor Karlsberg.

 

Gratulation to Stefanie from Wels, Austria. She has done the FAI training course with evaluation test and she is a FAI judge now.

 

New teams today... One of them is United Kingdoms 8-way team Brit Chicks, which deeply impressed Ms. Rabea from the registration office: "Die Brit Chicks inklusive Trainer sind eine extrem coole Truppe!". CU soon!
