Largest navy port in the UK closes pubs early. Um surely not! I think you will find all the night life you could hope for in the old town - the cathedral, lock-ins, houses with pretty coloured lights in the windows....


Tell that to Langtry's / The White Horse, whatever it is called... this one...

I would guess a single line arena and a main arena ? I wouldn't think we will get our own this year ?

That's what one would have thought Gary. But the agenda, unless it's changed, they have had for the event was talking about arenas (plural) in addition to the main one.

I didn't look at the new agenda earlier as was on the iPoo. But you are right, that does look challenging. The original one had 20 minute slots and some gaps which would have allowed a bit of over-run if necessary.

Pleased to say I have personally never been in the langtree - sounds like an 'interesting' venue - hang on to your wallet! Certainly looks to me like one of the places that would have the 'pretty coloured lights' ;)

Yep but we get three slots a day and those 15 minutes will certainly feel long if there is no wind! Who wants to volunteer to run 360's this year? I promise not to make you do it with the stacks.

Maybe the 30 minute one could include the 16?

It's not so much of a problem for us.. get in.. test the wind.. fly one routine.. get out.. 15 minutes over with :-)

But a Rok fight - only 15 minutes to organise, start, compete, finish & get everyone untangled and out of the arena?...

Big soft kites display - only 15 minutes to get them in, up, flying, down, and out of the arena...

Certain of the dual line displays usually go on longer than 15 minutes .. hmmm

Rather hopeful I feel!
