Thanks to the governor loosening the restrictions on outdoor recreation during the outbreak last week, Madcity Paragliding is in full swing again. We are of course practicing proper Covid procedures while instructing. As you can imagine, there is a bit of a backlog of people that were in training when the lockdown began as well as a sizable list of folks that signed up during the stay-at-home order. As a result we have been extremely busy lately.
Some of the highlights of our activity since the last post include -
A trip to the Lake Michigan shoreline to fly with members of the Chicago Paragliding group. Dimitry, Ken, Preston and I all made the pilgrimage to Bender Park to enjoy the rare opportunity the strong East winds provided.
Time at Elver Park kiting and making flights down the sledding hill with Jade, Eric, Tony, Greg, David M. and Mariyan. Jeff even stopped by for a bit.
A couple kiting practice sessions at the park in Oconomowoc with Ben, Ken, Matt, Eric and Dave S.
A new BGD Luna 2 wing for Alex, sweet!
Passing the PPG1 written test for Glenn, Jade, Eric and Dave S. Congrats guys!
Making our first tows off the new land in Sauk with Curt and Mariyan. This is going to perfect once the grass thickens up!
Too much happening to cover it all in our regular updates. It’s so nice to be back at it.
