In short - you must always check that the reserve you fit to your harness can be correctly deployed. If in doubt get a professional to fit it for you.
If the strap connecting the handle to the inner deployment bag is too long, the DHV suggest that a figure of eight knot can be used to shorten it.

This year's Christmas party will be on Saturday 14th December, at the Abergavenny Arms at Rodmell, and as usual will include the annual awards ceremony for the top pilots of 2013. Cost to be confirmed (it will be £20 or less). Expect good food, good drink and bad dancing.
Put the date in your diary, and I will confirm details in the next couple of weeks.
