This will be the second Rotary Club of Exmouth Kite Festival at the end of May.

It was at this venue, a year, ago that I met David Ellison doing his Rev Kite painting demonstration. As a result I bought my first Rev and several since!

Here is a link to the event.

Stephen H, I understand you are helping out in this event and will participate. Brilliant! Perhaps you will let us know / have some more details.

And any Rev fliers will will be made very welcome. So please try to come to sunny Exmouth.

Hi Ian, yep this event is shaping up to be a great weekend. We have an excellent line up of teams and events and the location is practicaly perfect.

The Flying Squad will be there all weekend and I will be doing a little commentary. (There's only 1 thing better than flying a Rev and that's talking about them!)

Any budding quad pilots do come along and please say hi. I am sure we can fit in some kind of coaching session should the demand be there, though we are primarily there to entertain the crowds. Should be a great weekend and I am reliably informed we have already booked a steady 8mph wind :kid_smartass: See you there.

Oh Sailor you'll be sooo relaxed after a whole weekend of Tai Chi ;)
Me thinks your little pinkies are typing nonsense again on behalf of your moving mouth. :lol:

Exmouth: doesn't look like much space available for fliers (on their map).... any ideas ?

Nope. About 2 years ago I finished 3 years spending 2 weeks in the UK and 1 week in shanghai. Also lived in QingDao for several months. And through this time I got into chi gong. I am now taking it up properly rather than relying on trying my best with a master in a park who speaks no English (I only speak basic mandarin).

The festival site does not have an abundance of free flying space but just next to it is the estuary beach which has has loads (except at high tide!)

Looking forward to some grand kite watching (grrrrr!) :rolleyes: Anyone need a ground crew?

Hi Dave, sorry to hear you are still not mended. I was hoping you would do a display of one handed Rev flying :kid_smartass:

Great news David but whatever you do, don't overdo it and undo all the good work you've done, we all want to see you back for the long stay not a flying visit.

What you need is some dusky maidens, to massage in some of those healing oils.

Hey my old friend, seems I overlooked something here. What happened?

Anyway, get yourself back in shape soon and teach those new Brit REV fliers how to fly a REV.

Hi there John - good to hear from you Mr Rev
I stuffed my neck/shoulder/arm about four months ago (see story here http://www.revkites....?showtopic=984). A long layoff makes you realise how important kiteflying is in the personal scheme of things!

No more 30mph heroics - my favourite wind strenght too!

Dusky is not the first words that would spring to mind Mousio.

Pretty, kind, cheerfull, yes. Dusky? think you would need a LONG holliday in the sunshine for that.

My Wife now, her parents were Jamaican, she is quite Dusky if that helps at all.

I am sure David would be quite happy to have a gentlle massage with healing oils from you.

Well I was going to put a good word in for you with some of the ladies from Stack but it looks like youíve had a much better offer, just donít ask me to chip in for the air fare. Iíve not been able to do any overtime since my injury and the bank manager is starting to panic a bit. :kid_gloomy:
