I just wanted to sell well done and thank you for all of you who flew in the mega team. I appreciate exactly how hard it is both for new fliers trying to absorb lots of new skills and for the people trying to get it all together at the same time and the same place. Just getting that many of you to be in the field at the same time is impressive!

So, hats off to you all from this side of the pond and a job well done to the man calling. I feel inspired again to try something new.

Respect to you all.

Stephen.

Call me a SAP!!
During Saturdays megafly, I was camped out a few miles away.
Not knowing it was happening, I was just hanging out with some camp neighbors, having coffee.
MISSED IT ALL !! AAAAHHHHHH!!!!!
Sorry JB,I said I'd join in, but missed it.
My skill is just not up to any group flying yet.
But next year.

Had a great time though.

Phew, at least you still have the Mustang!

That's what really threw me, I remember the pictures of the Mustang from the wedding and then to hear that you are driving a Volvo I thought it all went south in hurry (insert whipping sound here). :lol:

"and he only flies single line kites now"

:D

It was very nice to be back in the mustang this morning despite how not nice it was to have to go to work as opposed to another day at Long Beach

I've quickly learned that you can't have a mega fly of this size just anywhere, this stuff takes A LOT of bloody room.

And judging by the pics you lot were really shy - that's one spaced out grid (huge gaps between each column of flyers (?)) ;)

I do not think it was a case of shyness, for some it was shear terror. The vast majority, about 8 out of every ten fliers, were individuals that have never flown in a team environment, or were very new to it. (my self included) It was kept open so those fliers had a larger comfort zone and would have a better chance at success. We all made it through without major calamity, that in itself makes this particular super mega fly a qualified success.

Additional note: I propose that a new definition be made.

Super Mega Fly: When a group of Revolution quad line sport kite fliers numbering 36 or more flies Revolution kites in a organized grid formation for more than 5 minutes.

Okay. I've uploaded pics from WSIKF on my webshots page. I've only uploaded the Rev pics so far into their own album. It starts with the early arrivers on Sunday and goes through each day as we add more and more flyers. I tried to put a few names, and I apologize if I messed up on some. I tried to remember everyone, but old age is creeping up on me.

Thanks to Beryl Isaacs, our Canadian Winter Texan, for sharing her photos with me. Between the two of us, we got quite a bit. Of course, hers are the ones of us flying, since I couldn't multi-task. I think the main thing you'll see out of these is that we were sure having a lot of fun.

It looked like a great result. I do not think we need to worry about the name as I suspect that it will become the norm. It is early days yet. It is just one year since Portsmouth 2008...

What an incredible time for this newbie Rev flyer at WSIKF this year! Just wonderful to meet the folks that make up the Rev Family. It is a honour and privilege to be part of such a warm and kind community.
Special thanks to Terry and Mario for kicking off the event for me with a delightful adventure in just getting to the festival. Thanks to Cathy for her warm welcome, to Steve, Bob, Dianne, Penny, Willow, Ben, Theresa and the many others that were so open hearted in sharing their enthusiasm for quad line flying. And a huge thank you to John who showed such patience and consideration to those of us new to flying Revs and for the time he took to give me a hands on lesson that was like magic in how it impacted my approach to developing the basic techniques of Rev flying.

We were there in spirit...

Well done again to all the fliers and thank you for the link.
