This is separate from the recurrency training you'll need as a student (although you should definitely come if you can). Safety Day is a beginning of the season informal refresher/reminder kind of thing that's a good idea for everyone to attend, sudent or licensed, current or uncurrent. We go over things like things to check on your gear, aircraft safety, landing patterns, canopy safety, any new rules the DZ may have this season, etc. It's also a nice time to see people we haven't seen over the winter, and talk about how excited we are for the season to start  :)

The response has been very poor. If anyone wants training please let me know so I can arrange a course.

Tandem training, but I figure I'll have to travel somewhere to get it done as fast as possible anyway...
