Announcing a new Meetup for Zurich Hike & Outdoor!

What: Introductory course in Paragliding!

When: August 24,[masked]:15 AM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: THIS IS A SECOND ROUND OF PARAGLIDING FOR THOSE WHO CANNOT COME TO THE FIRST ONE!

Hello again,

Did you ever get to a top of a mountain and didn?t want to hike down? Well, this is your chance of learning how to glide down a mountain... or at least a tiny little one at this introductory 1 day course organized by Paraworld (see http://www.paraworld.ch/schnuppertag ).

The course is quiet simple. We meet in front of the Paraworld Shop in Kreis 3 (see above for address), where the teacher and an assistant will take us in a bus to a small hill in Menzingen, Kanton Zug.

The course will teach us to start, fly and land, but we won?t be jumping down from a big altitude...only about 2 meters from the ground. So, it is really good for beginners. We will be there until aprox. 16:30 pm.

The price is also very reasonable for the group: CHF 50.- per person payable at the course itself. You don?t even have special insurance for this.

Fortunately, you don?t need to bring along your self-made parachute. Paraworld will provide us with more professional ones.

The size of the course limits to only 16 people. Please, if you are sure on this event, go and put "YES" and confirm your status 5 days before the event. If I see more people are interested, then I will organize a second round of the course.

To bring along:
- a lots of water
- good shoes (hiking shoes or alike)
- lunch, you can even bring along something for the grill
- sun protection

The day before the course I will check the weather statement. If it rains, the event will be postponed to another day. You can also check the status of the flying condition by calling a infoband on[masked].

This will be a lots of fun. Hope to see you once more.

All the best,
Sven
