Tandem Skydiving - see Canberra in a whole new light!

NOTE: The cost for this adventure is $336.00 in total. Pay $100 deposit now, and the balance of $236 can be paid any time prior to the 23rd February.

Are you ready to set youself a challenge for the New Year?

I am giving you plenty of notice for this one, so you can save up your pennies or - even better - get your loved ones to pay for it as a Christmas present for you!

Imagine the adrenaline rush from jumping out of a plane, free falling through the air and then floating gently back down to earth, over Parliament House and Lake Burley Griffin to a cheering reception from the rest of us at Deakin Oval.

Full details on the Sky Dive Canberra website on what you can expect on the day, how long it takes, what to wear etc etc.

PLEASE NOTE THERE IS A MAXIMUM WEIGHT LIMIT OF 100KG FOR THIS ACTIVITY. ALSO YOU MUST NOT HAVE CONSUMED ANY ALCOHOL IN THE 8 HOURS PRIOR TO YOUR JUMP.

If you were one of the dozens of people that listed "Skydiving" as one of the things you would like to try on the questionaire you filled out when you joined this group, then -guess what- here is your chance! You will be with a group of girls/ladies just as nervous as you, and we can all celebrate together with a glass of champagne or 2 at the end of the day.

As always, if you have any questions just ask! Email me direct or post a comment on this page.

For those of you who don't want to skydive but would like to come down and support those that do, we will meet at Deakin Oval (next to the Mint) at 7.30am. The first jumpers will start landing around 7.45am.

    New to group but will try to get down to watch. I have done tandem and loved it. I have booked to learn and get my solo license next week with my son. Might not happen though as they seem to think I am too old. Will keep you posted and maybe after you guys do a tandem I can convince some of you to learn and we can jump together.

      Sure Denise, can you email me details on who you have booked the course through? I would be interested on looking into this.

    I'm working that weekend, so I'll have to put leave in and make sure I can have the time off before I RSVP. But otherwise I'm defin keen! :)

  • Holly

    Hey Natalie,

    Are you jumping, or does the creation of this event automatically has you as attending? If you are, I'd be game for it. :)

    December 5, 2012

    • Holly
