Did You Know...

... that the shuttle bus ride to the boarding area at Gold Coast includes free wildlife observation?

Boarding area at the FAI World Meet 2018
posted Oct 7th, 2018 - Finally it was time for real action at the FAI World Meet 2018, with Round 1 on Sunday morning.

Echochamber (Sweden), Amnesya (Italy) and CTR Optimum (Brazil) were the first three teams in the jump order of the 4-way Open Class competition at the FAI World Meet 2018.

In fact, there are plenty of them in very close proximity to the Runaway Bay Sports Super Centre. One of the bus shuttle drivers explained during the ride that there are roughly two kangaroos per Australian citizen all across the country.

It is more unusual to find the popular koala bear, and the first competition load of the day was so lucky to see the animal on the access road to the airport.

It was an early morning for some of the teams and competitors. The night from Saturday to Sunday brought a 1-hour time change to the visitors from across the world, and some of them were not prepared for the situation, including the NSL News correspondent. However, the early teams had some extra time to prepare for Round 1, and the NSL News had the opportunity for unexpected conversations...
