14/11/2010 Blackheath

Another 'soon after 10:00am' start and dry to begin with Zen focused day. We tried the Zen spars in the Decs JMH Rev 1s and they added a further twist to the range of kite/spar possibilities. With lightweight handles the lines transmitted a significant buzz from the kite, quite electrifying...

Flying 5 in 1-2 mph was working well today with parallel 360s, ladders up/down and Figure 8s as well as 'dice 5' block moves.

Gradually the rain moved in and it became apparent that the 'flexibility' of the Zen frame did not cope very well with a wet sail.

'Q' Why do we fly kites when it is pouring with rain?

'A' Because we can.

The Canada Geese were on the heath but have not migrated to our usual pitch. We only had to contend with the fallout from the fireworks last weekend and the worm casts today.
