You'll see over on Fractured Axel the exact same 'conversation' under Dunstable 2007.
We still don't know who the aggressive power kiter was but the organisers might want to think about inviting the likes of ppl like that again.
Especially seeing as this site is the home of the most rev fliers in the UK not buggy ppl!!!

Steady on mate, much as I would like to, I can't provide it for the whole festival, Mum's well past all day baking sessions now, but she does make me one for Dunstable.

It's funny, but no matter how old we get nothing tastes as good as our own Mum's baking.

Now how long before Garry shouts, "Leffe!"?

THE FLYING SQUAD
DARK STAR
TEAM SPECTRUM
SUFFOLK KITE FLYERS POWER TEAM
FRENCH CONNECTION - BRUNO & LEO ( kite stacks etc)

I hope the 'meadow' will be trimmed before the event or you'll lose sight of the line after about, er, 50 feet. :kid_smartass:

Oh that is good to see an update, thanks.
Good guest list too. :kid_content:

It was a rare treat to fly on newly mown grass last weekend....
Better import more bunny rabbits to the Downs to have a nibble so we can see the lines :)
