This weekend’s adventures...
Friday evening was sled runs down the Elver Park sledding hill with Dennis and Josh C.
Saturday morning it was back to Elver for more training. This was by far the biggest gathering of paragliders at the sledding hill ever. I was there teaching Peter and Robert. In total there were 10 pilots were taking turns gliding down the hill including Ken, Dennis, Eric and Josh K. Mariyan was there as well working with Adam and Charles. Curt was there for a quick introduction as well. He begins training this week.
Saturday afternoon it was off to Sauk City for some paraglider towing. Dimitry, Kury and Merek aka “Braveheart” we’re already there waiting for me when I arrived. The wind was all over the place because of the midday thermal activity which meant we had to be patient at launch but once airborne the sky was filled with lift. Mariyan took Charles and Mike on tandem training flights so they could get a taste of what’s to come for them.
Then we drove a mile north to John and Joel’s airfield for more PPG. Brent and Dave joined us. There it was powered paragliding until sunset followed up with beers.
Sunday morning I met Ken and Dave for a cross country flight in Oconomowoc. The wind was pretty strong so we didn’t get very far from the park before turning around and rocketing back to the park. Upon landing I met Preston to begin his training. Things sure are busy at Madcity Paragliding!
