I didn't know it had been stopped at Hollowback - I was up there before Christmas.... What happened?

2.4 interference.

Guys were losing planes hand over fist. I bought a repaired one from a bloke who lost 5.

... it sees some good air, but the LZ is a bit more restrictive now that the owner of the land behind the hill has decided to try to build a house up there, and has plonked a caravan and unrego'd car right where you need to come in on final

Max rarely get's to the landing part Bj so landing approach sounds perfect.

The wheels are supposed to come down first, Max.

My Slope landings aren't anything flash, Bouncer. They're usually a controlled crash, with a bit of panic thrown in for fun

Um....
Cartwheeling and wheels first are not the same thing Max.
While the both contain the word "wheel", they have totally different outcomes.
Did you not know that?
