St Hilaire 2004
19 Sep 2004
Well what a weekend! We`ve just got back from St Hilaire where we had a very busy time not to mention some great partying. There was lots of interest in Ozone and our new gliders that we previewed at the show. The stand was very busy with lots of people taking the opportunity to get their hands on some of the new Ozone 2005 clothing range. A big thank you to everybody who dropped by to see us and thanks for all the feedback you gave us. Congratulations must go to Sean White and the Never Ending Thermal team who scooped the big prize in the film festival, there was lots of interest in the film and we sold out of DVDs on our stand. Dick Jackson's film 'Over Khumbu' was well received and became an award winner in the festival. Also showing in the festival were our Renegades Hangover in Monaco film and a video on acro flying by Guillaume Broust which you can find as an extra on the Flying Babouches DVD. Outside above the south take off there were some spectacular acro displays. Dav and Jerome previewed the new gliders for the 2005 season with Jerome performing acro on the Geo proving that whilst it may be lightweight it`s still strong. Keep an eye on this website for more news on these wings and pictures soon. Thanks also go to Hermino Cordido The Ozone Renegades and Mike Kung for their top acro displays on the SixtyNine (Factory Version) along with Antoine, Ralfie Reiter and the R Team. Sat night saw us all on the decollage sud larging it up at the Ozone party, fuelled by tequila we managed to dance long into the small hours of Sunday morning. During the party the event looked more like a music festival with thousands of people partying away. Finally we have to say thanks to everyone involved in the organisation of La Coupe Icare, it`s an amazing event and one not to be missed with lots to see and do, see you there next year!
Whilst at the festival one of the Ozone Renegades' gliders and a harness was stolen, so if you are offered a yellow and red atom with a dark dog logo for sale, don`t buy it! It should be pretty easy to spot so if you do see it let us know and we will pass on the information to the guys.
