Just wanted to let the community know of the great generosity and encouragment I have personally received from fellow Rev flyers over the past few weeks.

Starting with this weekend;

I travelled to Devon from Southampton and met up with David Ellison and IAN4C for my second flying lesson using the Southern England loan kite and handles supplied by Sailor99, Lines and frames from David.

We had a great time on a wind very cold day.
David and Ian as well as giving me lots of great flying and kite housekeeping advice also let me try out several of their own kites. Many thanks guys much appreciated.

My first ever flight was at the Stokes Bay mini meet in Hampshite with Choccy,Sailor99 and Jonesey, Hippy Chippy and I think Groz(sorry if I missed anyone out). I was given a quick lesson and left to spend a great few hours experimenting with Sailor99's SUL. I was hooked.

After this I put out a note of thanks and asked if anyone had a kite for sale, I had just been made redundant from my job in IT so needed to get finances sorted before buying a new kite. This developed into the idea of the loan kite for new starters. Sailor99, Jonesy and David have supplied the kite and I am the first beneficiary of the scheme.

At the Portsmouth Kite Festival I had a very helpful chat with Bazzer (Barry Poulter from IQuad) and I had an encouraging email from John Mitchell, all have which have left me very impressed with the good nature and generosity of the community. I hope you can all feel a hearty pat on the back.

God does not deduct the hours from a person's life that they spend flying a Kite....

Good to meet up with you Mike. You picked up things quickly yesterday in a "fresh" wind.

Welcome to the Rev habit - I hope you have an understanding family ;)

Oh dear! We appear to have created another revaholic ;)

Enjoy your flying!
