Sunday 8th March
Lady Manners School, Bakewell.
The 2020 DSC EXTRA Repack Event – DO NOT DELAY AS THIS GETS BOOKED UP!
Come along and repack your reserve with BHPA qualified packers on hand for advice. You’ll need to bring along a copy of the manuals for both your reserve and harness. Downloads of manuals are usually available on-line from the manufacturers website. Please take a look with your manuals before the event.
Following the successful format of last year, there will again be two sessions.
This will be one session only and the session will start at 10:30 and finish at 16:00.
Please log on to Webcollect with your DSC Log-in and password to reserve a place on one of the sessions.
Payment is strictly in advance and will be done at time of booking by using webcollect. Costs are £10 person and this event is for DSC Members only.
On the Day
Please arrive in good time for your session because the sessions have to run like clockwork in order to complete them in the allotted time. You should also make sure that you are checked off the list of attendees upon arrival.
To help reduce the chance of dust and dirt contaminating reserves, please bring a pair of indoor shoes with you and change into them at the door to the sports hall upon arrival.
The format of the repack is a workshop in which you will be shown the principles how to repack a reserve. Thereafter you will be paired up with someone with a similar reserve and you will repack both reserves by working together. Qualified BHPA Emergency Parachute System packers will be on hand to provide guidance.
Leave the reserve in your harness as extracting it is part of the safety checks. It makes life easier if you detach your paraglider from the harness, as it saves it being dragged around the floor.
Please bring your own refreshments as there are none available at the school.
Wrap-up warm as the hall tends to be on the chilly side.
